Real “maternity clothes” are pretty much a thing of the past. There used to be whole areas in clothing stores for just the thing to hide that “embarrassing” belly. I made most of my maternity clothes in the early 70’s. Maternity clothes were passed around a lot to share when friends turns came up. I did stretch out one of my favorite winter coats on my first time around. It zipped up, and always had a permanent bump in the front after that one winter. I wore it anyways, but was forever smoothing down that front!
