5 Maternity Wear Ideas That Aren't Shapeless Sacks or Maxi Dresses

Hello! You are reading a shoppable magazine - items with -5% will earn you 5% back in cash.

Look amazing even whilst you're sporting a baby bump.


Maybe it's because we're Singaporean through and through, but the idea of spending hundreds of dollars on maternity wear that we'll only use for 9 months horrifies us. Why would you pay so much money for pieces that you won't ever re-wear again (until your next pregnancy, that is) and that are left to rot in your closet?

In this article, we bring to you maternity wear ideas that are essentially just everyday pieces of clothing that can fit a growing belly as well. You won't find any maxi dresses here (because those are an obvious enough option), or any shapeless sacks that we've (sadly) come to associate with "traditional" maternity wear. Read on for more inspiration!

#1: This versatile off shoulder top

Off-shoulder tops are chic and versatile, but more importantly, they’re typically loose-fitting and comfy as well. These can easily accommodate a growing belly - and are perfect for pregnant ladies who don’t want to spend on maternity wear!

#2: These chic drawstring paperbag pants

You’ll be hard-pressed to find pants more comfy than these paperbag ones - and because they’re drawstring pants, they can be adjusted to fit you regardless of whether you’re still bump-free, or whether you’re 9 months in and about to pop.

#3: This stretchy striped dress

Embrace your feminine side with this crepe chiffon midi dress that comes with a flouncy hem. Because this dress is cut with an empire waist and comes with a full skirt, there’s plenty of space for a baby bump.

#5: This belted shirtdress

This belted shirtdress will make sure that you’re the smartest looking mummy-to-be on the block. Purchase it in a size larger than your normal one so that you can "grow" into it - or simply wear it on its own without the accompanying sash to make more space for your growing belly.
