Pregnant women are often told not to invest too much in maternity clothing because they won’t be able to wear most of it after theirpregnancy, which is true. Instead of buying an entirely new wardrobe during pregnancy, many women turn to online consignment shops likeSwap.com andThredUp to find maternity wardrobe staples at wallet-friendly prices.
But, there are some clothing items you’d probably prefer to own first-hand, like swimwear. Maternity swimsuit shopping is its own personal kind of hell, but there are places to find flattering styles ― from plus-size maternity to one-piece looks you won’t hate to wear.
