The RLS Guide to Maternity Shopping

The funny thing is, I was good at maternity shopping for clients BEFORE I was pregnant myself. Going through two pregnancies (which allowed me to see how wardrobe needs change with each subsequent pregnancy) only sharpened my maternity shopping skills. Still, it has been four years since I wore maternity clothes, and new maternity lines come out all the the time. RLS currently has two maternity clients, which has allowed us to keep up with the maternity market.

Scroll down for some of our new as well as old favorites. Tart makes stretch blazers that are so comfy, you won’t want to retire them after pregnancy. They also have some great under-tops. Loyal Hana has the best blouses, most of which have these crazy hidden zippers for nursing later.

Happy Shopping!

Insignia by Sigvaris

Sigvaris compression tights were by far one of the best purchases of my pregnancy. They worked liked SPANX, allowed me to stay on my feet all day, and supported the belly really well. They are such good quality, I was able to pass them onto a friend. However, I kept the trouser socks for myself and still wear them!
