From Here to Maternity: You’re Capsule Wardrobe Essentials

Maternity Slogan T-shirtMaternity Kiss Print Top

It can be tricky to dress yourself when pregnant. Not literally – although that can come in late pregnancy when it’s impossible to reach your feet to put socks on. No, I’m talking about how difficult it can be to dress a changing body shape that’s likely to be very different to the one you’re usually used to.

Of course, you’ll find many great maternity ranges to help you out with elasticized waists and long line tunics – but having a baby is an expensive time as it is, without having to fork out for a whole new wardrobe that you’re only going to wear for nine months max.

This is where the supermarket can be your savior. Head to George at ASDA for a capsule maternity wardrobe at a bargain price. Be sure to put these items on your shopping list to ensure your new threads meet all your maternity needs and dress your bump beautifully!


Many women worry about having to give up their beloved denim jeans when pregnant. Not so! You’ll find a fantastic selection of maternity jeans available at George including both boot cut and skinny styles. Stretch denim and comfy over or under bump stretch panels mean a perfect fit that grows with you, so you can wear your favorite style of jeans as often as you like through your pregnancy.

Work wear

If you work in an office then your usual stiff suits, skirts and shirts may not fit a growing bump for very long. However, with maternity formal trousers costing just £12 at ASDA you can afford to invest in some new work wear to keep you feeling comfortable and looking smart. Tunic style blouses are also a good buy, and can be worn just as well with leggings outside of work.

Comfy and Casual

Said leggings are likely to become your new best friend when it comes to casual, comfy clothing. Wear with tunics, shirts, knitwear, t-shirts – they possibilities are endless. Just make sure that you choose long line tops, as leggings can be very unflattering on anything but the perfect of bottoms!

Something Special

While you’re unlikely to want to be out partying that much while pregnant, it is a good idea to have at least one or two special maternity outfits in your wardrobe should a dressy occasion arise. There’s no need to break the bank on this one – a simply jersey wrap dress or tunic will suffice. Take a look at stretch items with added interest such as lace panels or jewel embellishments for a special touch. Or dress up simple items with accessories that can be worn after the birth.

With a nursery to furnish, a pram to buy and a little person’s wardrobe to fill, you may not have a huge amount of cash to splash on maternity clothes. Don’t worry – at George you can get all your maternity capsule wardrobe essentials on a budget, to keep you looking and feeling great from here to maternity!
