You can’t go wrong with affordable style and we’re loving the latest maternity wear from H&M. Here are a few items to add to your pregnancy wardrobe (and to use long after!).
Leggings might be the comfort food of maternity wear, but denim can be equally comforting and offer a bit more style for days you need an extra “oomph.” While some denim is expensive, H&M often refreshes their assortment with a mix of classic silhouettes and trendy styles in a variety of washes, which is lucky for all mamas-to-be.
If you prefer a classic, timeless aesthetic, try the straight ankle jeans which are a tried & true denim.

For a comfy, loose vibe, the slim low jeans have a straight silhouette with a relaxed fit. They also sit below the belly with an elastic waistband, rather than an over-the-belly panel.

And if you’re sick of traditional blue denim, H&M offers other washes, including black and cream in the slim ankle jeans.

Who says you can’t be sexy while pregnant? While we appreciate oversized, comfy clothing to get us through all trimesters, sometimes it’s nice to put the sweats and sweaters away in favor of something dressy, form-fitting and (dare we say) even sexy! Especially if you’re heading into the holidays, a body-skimming dress will flatter your bump and keep you appropriate for all occasions fancier than lounging on the couch.
For those wanting a mix of style & comfort, try the ribbed knit sweater dress. The material is soft and comfortable, but the slim cut, ribbed detail and side slit keep it interesting.
Mama Rib-Knit Dress Dark Green
Wear it with a trench coat and sneakers or a leather jacket and chunky boots. If you want to kick it up a notch, try the jersey dress, which offers coverage (ankle length & long sleeves) but also shows skin thanks to the sweetheart neckline. Try it with ballet flats or a platform if you’re feeling it!

And if glam is the goal, you can’t go wrong with the sequined dress, which is a long sleeve mini dress with room for both a bump during pregnancy and nursing access postpartum. The flattering shape will provide added comfort during all trimesters and after baby. Perfect for the holidays or a (rare) special night out.

One thing we love about H&M’s maternity assortment is their basics, particularly nursing tops. They might not be top of mind while pregnant, but a nursing friendly top is crucial for the postpartum stage, as is comfort and function. H&M has a variety of tops that provide easy nursing access, while also being comfortable and versatile enough to dress up or down.
A tie belt blouse complements a bump during pregnancy and provides easy nursing access after baby. Wear it to work with tailored pants or with jeans on the weekend.
Mama Tie-Belt Blouse Blue/White Striped
An oversized sweater offers maximum comfort and concealment and we especially love the striped version for fall with a slip skirt and boots or jeans and flats.

Not all nursing tops have to be oversized; the t-shirt style basic top is available in a soft, ribbed cotton and offers double layers for added warmth. Plus, it comes in a 2-pack!

If you’re in a part of the world where it’s getting colder, you know outerwear is both a necessity and a challenge while pregnant/postpartum. Outerwear is also typically expensive, which is why we love H&M’s assortment of layering pieces at an affordable price.
For light coverage, the fleece hoodie is an elevated basic to add some warmth. The fit is oversized, to allow for comfort and layering, while the neutral color keeps it crisp.

For a bit more coverage, the hooded puffer vest offers warmth and function, allowing you to add light layers underneath. The hoodie and fabric provide extra protection for rain and snow and the elastic waistband gives some added room as your bump grows.
Mama Hooded Puffer Vest Black
Pair the khaki green with some white lug sole boots for an unexpected color combo! And for ultimate warmth, the hooded puffer coat offers coverage for both mama & baby, thanks to a detachable baby panel, allowing you to keep baby covered & warm inside the coat! It also offers padding and lining for extra warmth. Wear it with everything!

Cozy loungewear is essential during pregnancy and in the months immediately following. When you’re tired, feeling discomfort or a combination of both, the last thing you want to do is wear clothes that require effort. Luckily, H&M’s MAMA assortment has a mix of items that are both comfy and versatile so you can wear them while nesting at home and for the occasions when you leave the house.
We love this wrap style cardigan for something that’s comfy but also looks polished.
Mama Wrap Cardigan Light Beige
Wear it with the knit ribbed pants for a cozy head-to-toe look that’s more elevated than sweatpants (no judgment if you prefer the sweats!).
Mama Knit Pants Light Beige
And speaking of pants, these jersey pants are made from a comfy cotton/modal blend and offer a wide waistband perfect for pre and postpartum, plus you can dress them up with a denim or leather jacket.
Mama Before & After Jersey Pants Black
You can also pair them with the ribbed knit top, which is comfy yet tailored for a pulled together look.
Mama Ribbed Top Light Beige Melange
But if comfort is your main goal, you can’t go wrong with the seamless leggings and a classic gray sweatshirt – this one comes in gray. If you’re feeling daring, try pairing them with a baseball hat, loafers and a trench coat for a chic but comfy look if you have to leave the house!
