So I’m pregnant and I know a guy, a guy (well gal) who works with Maggie Maternity and wanted to hook me up with some maternity clothes to review on my blog. The clothes looked gorgeous and more expensive than I’m used to paying for maternity clothes so I said, “Sure.” Besides, on their site they mentioned that Angelina Jolie was seen wearing their tank top at the Cannes Film Festival and I thought it would really do her self-esteem some good if she found out she was wearing the same clothes as me.
So they sent me their summer box and I was a bit skeptical because everything in it was black. However, I know black is slimming (which I need) and decided I’d try and wear it mostly in air-conditioned locations or on overcast days (which we have a lot of here).
I was pregnant with both of my other kids primarily during the winter and nearly everything I have is dark, thick and long-sleeved. When I wear it, I boil.
That is not the case with these clothes. Despite being black in color, they’re very lightweight and breathable. They really are perfect for summer. The fabric is a Spandex/Rayon blend and feels amazing next to my skin. These truly are the most comfortable clothes I have ever worn, maternity or otherwise, including pajamas.
I decided to do my serious testing of “the box” when I was running our PTA fundraiser. The event lasted for 4 days and I spent much of my time on my feet working with kids and walking around the school. For 3 days I wore at least one piece from the box and felt like I was walking around in my most comfy PJs. The best part was that I got compliments on everything I wore. Words like “elegant,” “classy,” and “why are you so dressed up?” were thrown at me.
I felt super cute when I wore them and again, you can’t beat the comfy. After my 4-day test was over, it had sort of become a tradition to wear them… every day. I wear at least one piece almost daily. I wear them to church, to the park, to dance recitals and just lounging around the house. When we leave for summer vacation, they’ll be the first things I’ll pack. I’ve washed them all several times and they are holding up great. The look of the fabric has changed slightly but they haven’t balled or pilled.
They are machine washable but should be laid flat to dry. I hang them on a drying rack. I love them. Honestly I’m a very cheap person and I look for bargains in maternity clothes because you wear them for such a short period of time, but if I get pregnant again and my size has changed, I plan on buying another set of these in my current size. Because they’re so versatile, you wear them so often that it makes them worth the price. The sizing is a bit generous. I was wearing a 14/16 when I got pregnant and I got the biggest size they make (4) which says it’s a 12/14 equivalent and if anything they’re a tad on the large size.
The pants are probably my favorite piece because of the way they’re designed. You can wear them folded over at the beginning of the pregnancy but then pull them up as you get bigger or to avoid showing a waistline under your shirt. They work well as take-your-kids-to-the-park pants or you can dress them up with a classy top and wear them to the ballet and no one knows that you secretly feel like you’re wearing nothing on the bottom. The skirt is a close second favorite. It looks great and is cooler for summer weather.
If you’re pregnant, plan to be, or know someone who is, you should check out the site. For now, leave me a comment on this post and I’ll enter you to win a $100 gift certificate to Maggie Maternity. I’ll chose a winner on Thursday at noon PST.

I’ve been lurking here for months and I just love reading you! I’m not much of a commenter, but this is just too good to pass up. I’m due around the same time you are — September 1.
Kate W. says
That looks like some amazing goods! I’m pregnant with my first and due January 17. I’d love a shot at winning the gift certificate. Thanks for sharing!
Besides, Angelina Jolie needs some more support here in Provo, and I’m willing to give it to her if you choose me!
I love all the looks! Definitely comfortable!
Awesome. Could definitely use these in the future!
I am due December 22, it’s my third, and my maternity clothes have seen better days. Pick me, please!!!
Comfy maternity clothes that actually fit?
My 6-month belly is currently wearing a t-shirt of DH’s and a pair of yoga pants that are definitely of the “in the house only” variety.
The Daring One says
Congratulations! You WIN! Let me know that you got this email and I’ll send you the $100 coupon code.
Cute and comfy? That’s what a pregnant mom needs!
i’d soooo love to win!!! do i get to entries since i posted a comment on FB as well??!!! 🙂
Nice! This would definitely come in handy in the *hopefully* near future!
Oh my gosh, you look adorable! I am all for clothes that are super comfortable and still look stylish!
I’m due January 24th with twins. There’s no way I’ll make it that long and at 10 weeks in, I’m already starting to outgrow my clothes. I would love to be able to have some of these transitional type pieces!
Great review! My best friend is pregnant with her first baby and is having a heck of time finding cute maternity clothes on a budget. I’d love to surprise her with this great gift certificate!
Awe…you look so cute! Why can’t we be pregnant in the same city?
Always looking for great maternity clothes. Not that I’m pregnant!
erin HANSEN says
I could totally use this right now! I’ve looked at my pathetic supply of maternity clothes, and realized that something needs to be done. That and, like you, most of my stuff is winter related!
I would love this! I’m currently pregnant with my first and not into maternity clothes yet, but it won’t be too long!
Looks fabulous! I’d love to give it a try between now and November. 🙂
I always love shopping for maternity clothes, but it seems like there aren’t always a lot of super versatile pieces. This looks like the solution to all that!
You look fantastic! My daughter is 18 mos and we have been thinking of going for baby #2! I would love to wear something so comfy and adorable!
Mrs. M says
I’m in my 2nd trimester and would LOVE to have some maternity clothes that are both comfy and classy.
Due January 3, and I have almost NO maternity clothes! 😀 The clothes did not get moved with us in our two moves since our first, this would really help us out.
And the fact that they are cute is just an added bonus! 😀
These are super cute! I am not pregnant. But my SIL is and I would definately give this gift certificate to her! Thanks!
wow… I LOVE those clothes! we’re planning for a second in the fall so I’ll be hunting down comfy maternity clothes. it doesn’t hurt that their line is black as that’s basically all I wear anyway!
I would LOVE some new maternity clothes! Those look super cute and comfy.
HI, I am not actually pregnant – thank goodness, so I don’t need the maternity clothes, but wanted to say…you look really cute, Honey. The shoes are darling too. Love you!
would love them!
I am not pregnant at the moment but I have a friend who is expecting twins in August and is dying in the heat!
This giveaway is so good I just might get pregnant 🙂 Just kidding…but I do have many prego friends who would be thrilled to have some new clothes added to their wardrobes. Everyone wants to feel cute, especially a pregnant lady.
You, by the way, look fantastic!
What a nice giveaway. Thanks.
October 16th, little girl 🙂
Hey, if Angelina’s in it, I’m all for it!!!
I know what you mean about hot, uncomfortable maternity clothes! I’m due August 27th and I would love to try these out.
Due in December with number 3…
The clothes are really cute and you look super happy- feeling alot better it looks like!
Amy @ Experience Imagination says
All my pants are getting too tight! Please enter me in the giveaway. 🙂
Erin Marie says
Awesome. While I’m not currently pregnant, I hope to be soon. And all I have is one pair of Old Navy jeans (although, I LOVE Old Navy’s maternity, just FYI… which is odd because I hate regular Old Navy). It’s hard to find good, cheap maternity clothes, so thanks. 🙂
Those are fun! I’m not usually a fan of black, but I can see the appeal, especially if they’re comfy for summer. Comfy gets hard with maternity clothes! It’s hard to find pants that don’t slide down all the time. I’m due in January with my third, but my mostly secondhand maternity wardrobe is going through a much needed overhaul. Those could be a fun addition!
Yes, please! I’m only 12 weeks and ALREADY huge and would love some clothes that fit and are comfy and can carry me through the next two trimesters….
Ooo, I’m pregnant and these would be so handy! My maternity clothes from the last two pregnancies just aren’t as cute as they used to be….
You look great! I’m due Sept 23rd, so these would be perfect!
one of my biggest fears about getting pregnant is the clothes (lame, i know….). but if you like them, then i know i’ll like them…. 🙂
Ooooo….Pick me! I’m due in September with my first and maternity clothes have been such a NIGHTMARE to figure out! Thanks for the review too. I’d looked at their site previously but wasn’t sure on the value, so I appreciate your feedback.
We’re thinking about number 2 and these would be great. I’m so excited about whipping out the maternity clothes and these would be a great addition. I love your blog and your kids are adorable!
I’ve never shopped there before but their clothes look great. I’m working until I deliver so I would really get a lot of use out of them. Thanks for the giveaway! Good luck with everything!
I just had a beautiful daughter 10 weeks ago, so I don’t need the clothes (but they look so comfortable and stylish that I wish I needed them now!). Maybe next time around…anyway, my friend, Christina, is pregnant with her first. She’s having a rough time right now because she has lupus (and complications from her medication) and celiac disease (so she really has to watch what she eats). We’re both teachers, and these clothes would be perfect for her during the school year. I’d love to cheer her up with this gift! I know how hard pregnancy can be even without any complications! Congratulations on your baby:)
Do I want new maternity clothes even though I have less than a month left in this pregnancy? Ummm . . . Yes! 🙂
You look amazing! What a fun set of preggo clothes! I hope I get lucky!
I am due in December and these would be a nice alternative to the yoga pants I ALWAYS revert to when I pass month five.
Comfy maternity clothes?? Sounds wonderful!!
Lady of Perpetual Chaos says
Maybe these cute maternity clothes will help ease my fears of getting pregnant with #3?! And you look fabulous!
Those look cute and comfy – all that you need in a maternity ensemble.
ooooh, I’m planning on getting pregnant soon and would love the chance to win! Thanks!
Sarah S says
You look so stinkin cute it those clothes! They totally rock!
Cute clothes. I’d love to try them.
Ooh, sounds & looks great! 🙂 I’m expecting, due in December, and I would LOVE to win! All of my maternity clothes are from Goodwill, Ebay or K-Mart! 🙂
Oooh, I love maternity clothes. I generally can’t wait to get pregnant just for the clothes. I always feel really feminine when I’m pregnant and wear lots of girly stuff I would never wear otherwise.
The clothes sound great! I love the fact that they feel like PJ’s 🙂 I’m due Sept. 12 and would love some comfy clothes.
Oooo!!! Love it!!! I’m pg with #4 in the totally opposite season as my other three and don’t really have the $$ to buy new maternity clothes (you know, pastor’s salary and all, lol). 🙂 Would LOVE to win this!
Sure, I’ll enter. My SIL is due in August. What prego women doesn’t need more cute (and comfortable) clothes?!
Those look great, and anything that makes you more comfy has got to be worth it!
Proud Daughter of Eve says
Maybe if I get picked, my plans for this year will come to pass… Sympathetic magic, anyone?
Jennifer T says
Those clothes look great! I’m not pregnant now, but plan to be soon, so these would be awesome to start the new wardrobe!
I’m due at the end of October and would love love love some new maternity clothes that don’t make me feel frumpy.
ooh pick me, pick me! Black is so classy and versatile. 🙂
Laura C. says
Oooo, pick me! Pick me! Due Sept. 17th and in desperate need of some more Maternity Clothes.
Jody M says
Pick me, pick me! Comfy to me means wearing my husband’s basketball shorts as I get bigger. Not leaving the house due to no cute maternity clothes doesn’t do much for my social life…butterfly that I am.
Wow, I really want to win those for next time… is it bad that I’m not pregnant and entering anyway? I promise I’ll share them with someone who actually needs them now if I win. 😀 (And if I don’t win, maybe you’ll be a super pal and let me borrow yours when I need them??? wink nudge?) 😀
Really cute pictures, K!
What a great wardrobe! I’ve got a friend who this would be great for!
I would LOVE a box for my next pregnancy.
I am only hoping to be pregnant… but maybe if I started wearing these really cute maternity clothes, it would happen?
Hi! I recently found out that I am pregnant with number 3 – surprise! I don’t like to shop and especially don’t like to go maternity shopping. Tim practically has to drag me to the store. So, having a set of clothes to mix and match would be awesome. I just love the picture of you in the dress. You look cool and stylish!
Yay! Hook me up! 🙂
love your writing at parenting.com!
Pregnant with my third. I’m not due until jan 7, but you know how it is, by the time the third gets in there, your uterus is so stretched out you “pop” almost immediately. I’d love to win!
Oooo – those look fantastic! I hope I win – it would be so nice to have NICE maternity clothes!
Pick Me! Pick Me! Pick Me!
While I’m not currently pregnant, I’m back on Clomid for the 3rd attempt….2 failed pregnancies came before this round of meds. I’m really hoping that this time around is the charm, and I know that if it’s successful this time, the new clothes will make me feel even better!
I’m a longtime reader of DYM, but generally don’t comment. I enjoy reading about your adventures as a mom and wife! I think you are so generous with your giveaways and other promotions…You Go Girl!
Oh, I have a deep and abiding hope that I will one day need maternity clothes again. You look adorable.
Barb @ getupandplay says
Ooh, these are nice. Maternity clothes have come a long way since my mom’s day, but there are still some out there that make me think that the manufacturer thinks that pregnant women are also blind. 🙂
Sign me up! These will come in handy soon!
Tara Bramy says
These clothes (and “The Daring Young Mom” ‘s description and comments REALLY sold me!!!!) are so cute!! My daughter Chloe’ is in her 2nd trimester (2nd pregnancy); she has severe arthritis, and the comments of the comfort of this line sounded incredible~ any comfort allowed during pregnancy is a must!!~ and my daughter could use any comfort during this time. I’ve sent info on your website and the line on to others’ (to pass on to others, and so on) too. Thank you for your time, and good luck. Hope to hear from someone that I (for my daughter) won the gift. cert. hee hee Thank you for the info.!!
I am pregnant with my second, due October 2.
Thank you for the review of these great-looking, comfortable maternity clothes.
Wow. Those honestly look amazing. And to hear they are comfy? Wow again. I’ll have to go check them out.
We’re getting ready to try for #3 and considering how not cute most of my maternity clothes were the first (and second) time around, I’d love something new this time.
Kristin Olson says
Well I have to reply as I love clothes:) Tee Hee I only have 5 or 6 weeks left for this pregnancy but worth trying ha?
I’m due in December and getting to the point where I need to wear maternity clothes. I would love to win this gift certificate so I can expand my clothing options as more and more items begin to no longer fit! Thanks for offering this!
I’m not currently prego, but I hope to be soon. And dude, I LOVE black maternity clothes and these look awesome.
What a great giveaway! Please sign me up. (Due w/ #3 in October – could totally use a wardrobe update!)
Wow! These Maggie Maternity clothes really do look amazing! My husband and I are ttc. Winning these gorgeous clothes would be a sign of the great things to come! 😉 These would be perfect for me to wear to work and they sound comfy enough to wear on the weekend. I also love the Maggie Bump Band in white. It would be the perfect fashion accessory to break up all of the black and add a really classy touch. Thanks for this great chance!
They have such cute clothes!
