Maternity style has come a long, loooong way since the shapeless days of oversize muumuus and baggy overalls. From royal-approved dresses to bump-friendly workout gear, maternity brands are finally starting to understand what moms-to-be actually need (and want).
Even with all these thoughtful options, swapping out your entire wardrobe for just nine months still requires a fair amount of effort and investment (hand-me-downs will only get you so far). Wouldn’t it be so nice if your pre-pregnancy clothes could do double duty and work with your expanding waistline? Enter the magical top that does exactly that.
Before I had a baby bump, this T-shirt from Swedish brand Weekday was the relaxed, slouchy basic that I could wear with my favorite skinny jeans, but could also be paired with a pencil skirt or thrown on under a blazer. It was the literal definition of effortless. And it happened to look pretty cool, too.
Now that I’m in my third trimester, it’s also the only non-maternity top in my closet that still fits me. (Unless you count my oversize, hole-laden college sweatshirt...) I credit the extra-long fit, high neck and soft-to-the-touch organic cotton for letting me throw it on without any awkward bulging or stretching. Instead, this T-shirt continues to parade itself as a stylish, well-fitted piece that I’m still able to pair with different bottoms, for a variety of looks.
