Most women either love maternity wear or they hate it. From the first sight of that positive pregnancy test, some of us eagerly await the moment when we sport enough of a baby bump to fit into maternity clothing. Others, particularly the more fashion-conscious among us, fear the shapeless lack of variety for which maternity wear is so notorious. Fortunately for all of us, though, maternity fashion has evolved in recent years and it is possible to be pregnant and stylish at the same time. Below you will find some of the best places in Memphis to shop for maternity wear.
