Preggers Clothes at Anthropology

I have a job at Anthropologie, the wonderful women's clothing store.  Anthropologie doesn't officially have a maternity line, but they seem to have a lot of clothes one could wear while pregnant, or right after being pregnant, when a woman isn't skinny yet.  Because, we all know, unless you are a supermodel, or super lucky, it takes forever to get a normal shape after pregnancy.  

Over the years I have had a lot of pregnant friends and family members.  One of the major complaints I hear about the clothing options is how boring and ugly they are.  No one really wants to wear hideous clothing, especially when she already feels like a whale.  

When I am at Anthropology, I see a lot of clothes, and think, "Wow, my pregnant friends could wear that."  Sometimes I even help pregnant women find clothes to wear.  One time, I help a guy find his pregnant wife a present.  (Helping guys is my favorite, because I love when men buy something their wife will love.)  I also have a couple managers at work who are pregnant, and who wear clothes from Anthropologie all the time.  

Below, I have collected a lot of the clothes that a woman could wear while pregnant.  Some she could wear all the way to 9 months, some for just the first tri-mester.  Also, all the clothes are made for women 59", so if you are shorter than that, they will be longer on you than pictured on the model.  

Rompers and Pants
My pregnant manager wears the Ikat romper all the time-- and she looks ready to give birth.  When I first saw these lounger pants, my first thought was that they look like maternity pants-- the fabric is thick like regular khakis, so they look like normal pants, except for the knit waist band.  

Blue Toile Jumpsuit
Dao Ikat Jumpsuit
Holding Horses Chambray Romper
Holding Horses Denim Jumper
Madrona Linen Lounger
Striped Linen Lounger
Dresses
These dresses all don't have a waist band, or a stretch waistband-- they are long and flowy, and easy.  
Calcada Dress
Grandiflora Maxi Dress
Nighttide High-low Dress
Pavani Maxi Dress
Pleated Cadence Dress
Topanga Canyon Maxi Dress
Tunc length tops and dresses
The following is a collection of tops and dresses that hit between the knee and the bum.  Some of these items would come to almost the knee on a non-pregnant woman, but on a pregnant woman, especially at 9 months, the front hem would be much higher.  I've tried to include items that are stretch, or that I know have lots of room in them.
