If you were under the impression you had to choose between affordable maternity clothes and ethical maternity clothes, I’ve got some exciting news. Quince, the affordable luxury brand that has no doubt infiltrated your social feeds with their wallet-friendly cashmere sweaters, has launched an entire collection of sustainable maternity basics that check both boxes.
Made up of high-quality and super comfortable basics that can easily be dressed up or down, the Quince maternity collection is crafted from their range of renewable materials: Tencel lyocell, a biodegradable fabric made from wood pulp which requires up to 20 times less water to produce than cotton, 100% washable Mulberry silk that’s naturally thermoregulating, their proprietary SuperSoft fabric which is made from a blend of tencel and recycled polyester and of course their sustainably and humanely sourced Mongolian cashmere.
And even though each and every piece is sustainably produced in ethical factories that pay fair wages, they’re impressively budget-friendly. Prices start at less than $25 for a maternity and nursing bra you’ll want to live in and even the priciest pieces–a stunning silk gown that’s just perfect for bump photos and crazy soft cashmere joggers– both ring in at under $100 bucks. (I know!)
So whether you’re looking to build a stress-free maternity capsule wardrobe or on the hunt for a baby shower dress that stuns, the Quince maternity collection has everything you need! Check out some of our favorite pieces below.
Every mama, pregnant or not, should have a simple wrap dress in their closet. Not only is it a totally timeless style, it’s one of those pieces you can depend on for everything from work days to date nights. For some added security, this one is designed with a faux wrap (no concern for flashing the goods here!) and with the low v-neckline it easily transitions to the nursing stage.
The good news is that no one asks to see proof of pregnancy to buy maternity clothing. There’s a 0% chance of me having a baby ever again and yet I’d like to have this in my rotation immediately. The lightweight and stretchy design is perfect for lounging but still looks chic. Need to haul yourself out into the world? Throw on a duster cardigan and some cute sneaks and you’re good to go!
Available in dark olive/black and navy/heather gray, these super soft tees are an absolute must-have. The longer length and ruched sides mean they’ll make getting dressed stress-free from your first trimester through the fourth.
Talk about a show stopper! Made from Quince’s machine-washable mulberry silk, a naturally hypoallergenic and thermoregulating fabric that’s great for sensitive skin, it packs an impressive amount of utility into a million dollar silhouette. And while we’re absolutely smitten with the sapphire navy hue, it also comes in black as well.
