    Shopping for maternity wear has a bit of a bad rep, and we can see why. Travel back in time to a good decade ago, and the only options you were faced with were basic t-shirts and dresses that were, well, a little bit shapeless if we’re being honest here.

    Plus most mums don’t feel their best when they put on weight (though we think they look beautiful), so don’t particularly fancy shopping. That needn’t be the case anymore.

    Being a stylish mum-to-be has never been so easy, mainly thanks to the high street waking up to the fact that being pregnant doesn’t mean you HAVE to be banned to the unfashionable corner.

    Whatever your usual style, there are definitely plenty of options to help you keep your style identity throughout your pregnancy.

    Into classics? Try tailored and striped Breton tops at JoJo Maman Bébé and Mothercare. More of a boho girl at heart? No problem. ASOS and Next have got all your gingham and floral print needs covered.

    Meanwhile, good old M&S and H&M are fab destinations for the latest trends, and you just can’t go wrong with Gap for a bit of good quality denim.

    Now naturally, we don’t expect you to just wear a top out. That would be silly – though we’re totally not judging if that’s your preference. So if you need extra inspo for the rest of your wardrobe, we’ve got it covered. Try our selection of beautiful maternity trousers and, for a smarter approach, shop our edit of the best dresses to suit any occasion. We told you we had your back.

    In the meantime though, scroll down to shop our pick of the maternity tops that will up your pregnancy style game. All the other mums at your NCT classes will be well jealous.
