Have you seen Isabella Oliver's Grecian tunic top? It retails for $129, and is, in my humble opinion, worth every penny. And then some.
I had my eye on this tunic for quite some time, and purchased it the second I found out I was pregnant with #2. I'm so glad I did. This tunic was my go-to piece for my first, second, and third trimesters. It looks amazing dressed up (I wore an exact replica of the pictured outfit many times)…and is so comfortable (and washable) that it quickly became an everyday favorite.
The low v-neck and large swingy sleeves are flattering to a large pregnant bust and forgive a multitude of upper arm sins. And the tunic is cut longer in the front, ensuring that your belly is covered…even if yours is an epic size. (And mine was.)
While the empire-waist left me looking a bit pregnant post-partum, this tunic was still a much more stylish option for those first few weeks when you have tons of visitors, and no one is surprised by your post-partum pooch. You can also nurse easily in it.
Styling possibilities are endless…but here were my favorite ways to wear it:
(wearing: IO Grecian tunic, Gap denim leggings, me too flats, banana republic wrap cardigan, j.crew headband….mia boots, american apperal turtleneck, coach bag)
(wearing: IO Grecian tunic, J.Brand maternity jeans, Target gladiator sandals, Bloom bangles, J.Crew headband, Banana Republic long silver necklace, vintage clutch…Joe's Jeans denim jacket, Forever21 leggings, me too flats)
This is the only top I've found, maternity or no, that works just as well from the beginning of pregnancy…
To the very end.
ps. If I were pregnant now I'd be wearing it with J.Brand's maternity Lovestories…
