Out with the old clothes and in with the fashion forward maternity clothes.

Just because you're pregnant, doesn't mean you can't dress in your usual style. With so many high street brands offering their own maternity range, it's great to be able to find plenty of choices when it comes to maternity clothing nowadays.

Whether this is your first pregnancy or you've done this before being able to treat yourself to clothes which you find stylish and of course, comfortable, is important. Whatever your size, there are plenty of maternity clothes on this list to fit every mum-to-be.

Most women don't start to show until 16 weeks and many continue to wear their normal clothes until they hit around 20 weeks, which is when they tend to switch over to maternity wear. However, there isn't really the right time to start buying maternity clothing, it's more about preference and when clothes. Often women switch to maternity bottoms first followed by other items such as tops, sportswear and bras after, but each body is different so it varies from person to person.  When buying maternity clothes, you should buy your normal size pre-pregnancy as these will all have design features so that they can accommodate your growing bump.

Finding tops that are made of a soft and stretchy material is great for pregnancy as it allows for ultimate comfort, making your time with a growing bump as easy as possible.  Although this post is sharing 10 of the best maternity tops, we also have a post on the best maternity jeans and also the best maternity sportswear which you may find useful if you're looking for a whole maternity wardrobe.
