Curating a wardrobe that provides comfort is essential for any mum-to-be. Now, you could argue that buying specific clothing for during pregnancy is not sustainable, however these three sustainable maternity brands sell clothing to wear way beyond those special nine months. You’ll be looking for clothing that is both comfortable and flattering, which can often pose a challenge. You don’t have to go wild shopping, instead opt for a few staple investments that offer flexibility to grow through all three trimesters, into postpartum and beyond. The following sustainable maternity brands offer ethical, adaptable, and comfortable pieces no matter your shape, size, or due date.
Of course one of the first things to do, before investing in new clothes is to figure out which pieces from your existing wardrobe still work, what could be worn unbuttoned, layered up? What shoes will fit your feet as they change? Thankfully, many shoemakers are finally getting around to making more ergonomic foot beds that feel good to wear all day. Somewhere along your journey though, there will be times when dressing a growing belly and changing body shape will demand specific pieces to be added to your wardrobe.
