We've said it once, and we'll say it again: praise be for ASOS. The extensive range online of maternity brands at our go-to highstreet saviour is unrivalled and more importantly fits in with our non-pregnancy wardrobe entirely. If we want to carry on wearing pencil skirts and denim shirts we can and we will!
ASOS Maternity Midi Pencil Skirt in Jersey, £15
New York-based brand Sea offers modern separates and feminine dresses with lots of billowing silhouettes and peplum shapes. If you have an event to go to or simply want to look chic throughout your pregnancy, look no further than this brand which perfectly captures everyday elegance with pieces that can fit over a growing bump.
Sea Border-print silk long-sleeved belt dress, £605, available at Matches Fashion
Okay, okay, Cloe Cassandro’s ethical luxury loungewear isn't technically a maternity brand but the handmade, hand-dyed and hand-printed pieces produced by local Balinese artisans are all incredibly comfortable and chic.
The brand's philosophy is straightforward and we love it: classic design and the most beautiful silk chiffon fabrics are combined to create simple, timeless pieces which are produced ethically and to the highest standard.
This open oversize shirt is a staple piece for any maternity wardrobe as it's breezy, flattering and versatile.
Cloe Cassandro Andrea Boyfriend Shirt £125
We can always count on COS for Scandi chic, offering sophisticated wardrobe staples that could be mistaken for Acne or Céline. Thanks to oversized silhouettes and form-flattering shapes and colour palettes, COS should be on any pregnant shopper's radar.
COS dress with pleated sides, £69
We all have a favourite pair of jeans that have seen us quite literally through thick and thin. But if/when that dark day comes when you can no longer do up the top button, whether it's thanks to one too many roast potatoes or a bun in the oven, there's Donna Ida.
At the brand's Denim Clinic and Maternity Alterations Service, the team can not only find you the perfect pair of jeans but alter new jeans, or an existing pair to fit around your new bump, for just £40. The process can be reversed post-pregnancy and jeans can be amended back to their original shape.
If jeans are too uncomfortable, dungarees or a pinafore are a pregnant lady's best friend – spacious, stylish and quick and easy to get into.
Donna Ida IDA Ramona Culotte Pinafore in Forever Blue, £195
