Balancing comfort and style during pregnancy is a tricky balance, especially when your ever changing and beautifully expanding waistline is involved. Maternity skirts in this regard are just like maternity jeans – worth the investment in particular designs to keep you feeling and looking good. With that in mind, we’ve also included a few options that you can wear before your bump gets too big or if you tend to size a little smaller. Material is also a crucial factor to consider, and finding a good quality knit or blend can be challenging in maternity land. But fear not, we’ve found the best of the best stylish, comfortable and high quality skirts we could to see you through from bump to bebe.
What are some recommended materials, lengths, and styles for maternity skirts?
First off, think about length and style. Do you want a skirt that sits over your bump, or one that you can wear underneath? Do you prefer casual, or something a bit more dressy, like a satin or silk skirt? And don’t forget about color! White, beige, and pink are all great options as well as the obvious wardrobe staple that is the black skirt.
Now, let’s talk about materials. It can be hard to find good-quality, sustainable and ethical maternity clothes, but these are worth seeking out. Look for skirts made from breathable or recycled material. If we’re very honest – which we are – it’s a little tricky to find maternity skirts that are also made with 100% sustainable pure fabrics but a majority blend is better than nothing. See how you go with our recommendations below. Have fun styling, mama!
