Back in your mother's and grandmother's days, there were only a few clothing options for pregnant women: shapeless muumuus, big tent dresses and silly accents like large bows. Luckily, maternity fashion has come a long way.
Many top brands and popular stores are stocked with trendy, flattering and unique options that'll help you maintain your personal style throughout your pregnancy.
