I've always loved stripes, but certain striped patterns I didn't wear, because they did tend to make me look larger than I was (some sort of optical illusion, I'm sure!)

when I got pregnant, all the maternity wear out there was striped, and I thought, "wait, I thought stripes made you look bigger!" then I tried on some of the striped maternity dresses and tops and I totally understood why there are so many striped options out there for us pregnant mamas: it truly is the most flattering pattern!

I own probably 5 or 6 striped maternity dresses and tops and I wear them all the time, because I feel best in them. they just hug your belly, hug your hips, and kind of making it all look.... better!

I figured I'd round up some of my favorite maternity stripes in case some of you pregnant mamas are afraid to try the trend and don't know where to even look! I've got you covered.
