Can anyone help a 30 yo find non maternity maternity ideas?

Can be Jewish stores or not. If you have tried and true sizing tips please share as well.

This is for summer and fall/early winter, so year round ideas would be great.

It really depends on how you carry the baby. If you look fat when pregnant, just size up.

On the other hand, if you're like me, and have a classic pregnant shape, you might have to suck it up for maternity clothes, especially skirts.

Otherwise, I got a lot of mileage out of tops a size (or 3) larger than my usual, button-down shirts worn open, and maternity skirts.

Not everyone looks fat when pregnant. I’m nowhere close to fat Or overweight and one size up fits perfectly. I get a size M/L. For refusing clothing as maternity. And I have the classic pregnancy shape.

A lot has to do with the cut of the outfit. Empire waist or swing type styles are more likely to accommodate a pregnancy bump.

I’m 6 months preg bh and maternity clothing is too big on me (I’m petite).

So far I’ve done well in Junee, dress blank and Amazon. Slip dresses are in style now, so I got tons of cute cotton ones from Amazon and wear it with a cardigan or a tshirt on top.

Good luck!

Try maxi dresses or other loose dresses as others have said. No need to size up in many circumstances, and they are comfortable.
