People have extremely varied opinions on maternity fashion. Some expectant mothers rush out to buy their first piece of maternity clothing as a symbol of the journey they’re about to embark on. Others hold off as long as possible, with great hacks for how to get the longest use out of their regular clothes. And we’ve all seen the signature styles: empire waists, shirts with ruching on the sides, those pants with the giant stretchy band to pull over a growing bump. In this episode we explore how the maternity fashion industry came to be, how styles have changed (or haven’t changed), and what current people who bear children are wearing. It’s a wild ride!
