How do maternity tops work?
The best maternity tank tops are designed to stretch to fit your expanding belly, then spring back to their original shape so you can keep wearing them postpartum—something to consider for moms on a budget!
What tops are best to wear during pregnancy?
Comfort is key, so look for cute maternity tops that are also soft, stretchy, and breathable, especially if you’re expecting during the summer months. You’ll want maternity tops that can work with the rest of your wardrobe and help you wear your non-maternity items as long as possible, so opt for classic colors, layerable pieces, and longer silhouettes that give you coverage if you’re wearing unbuttoned pants or shorts.
Can I wear a bra with a maternity top?
If you’re comfortable wearing a bra with your maternity tops, then absolutely! Some expecting moms have found that our B.D.A.™ Maternity Tank Top offers enough support that they can skip the bra—the best advice is to try one on with and without a bra, and see what works best for you.
Can I wear a maternity top while sleeping?
Some moms-to-be like the additional support that maternity tank tops offer while sleeping. If you’re looking for this kind of maternity top, you might like the soft, breathable knit fabric of the B.D.A.™ Maternity Tank Top, which should keep you cooler during the night.
Is it OK to wear a maternity top when going to work?
Generally speaking, yes. A maternity tank top is a great option if you want an extra layer of protection between your stretch mark creams and lotions and your nicer work clothes.
How do I know which size maternity top I need?
One thing about pregnancy that’s (sort of) consistent: sizing! Maternity clothing sizes are similar to regular clothing sizes, so if you’re usually a size small in your pre-pregnancy tops, then you’re most likely a size small in maternity tops, as well. The same holds true for numbered clothing sizes, as well.
Can you wear a maternity top for working out & exercise?
Definitely! You’ll likely want to buy some maternity workout tops to get you through those prenatal fitness classes—and feel good about your reflection in the gym mirror, while you’re at it! Look for fabrics that are stretchy, soft, and breathable so you don’t overheat.
How many maternity tops should I buy?
The number of maternity tops you buy will likely be determined by your lifestyle and unique needs, but you’ll want enough on hand so you’re not doing laundry constantly.
What are your tips to choosing the best maternity top?
The best maternity tops will stretch as your belly expands and then recover their original shape so you can wear them before, during, and after pregnancy. Look for quality fabrics that breathe and keep you cool when it’s hot out; details like side ruching can be flattering as your belly expands, too. A bonus: Look for a maternity top with our WonderWeave™ technology, which seals in any creams or lotions you might apply to help prevent stretch marks and soothe itchy skin, and keeps them from getting on your other clothes.
