The Five Best Maternity Brands on a Budget

It use to be that being pregnant was the kiss of fashion death for moms-to-be. Thank Gucci, almost-moms no longer have to wade in the fashion sea of tent dresses and super-stretchy sweatpants (even though they’re über-comfortable). Options for hot almost-moms are actually cute, fashion-forward and… affordable.

Check out our picks for the best maternity wear on a budget.
