When it comes to comfort and versatility, you can’t go wrong with a classic T-shirt — and that’s especially true when you’re building a maternity wardrobe. The best maternity T-shirts are made from soft and stretchy fabrics that offer comfort through every month of pregnancy and postpartum. And from basic tees to patterned designs, you’re sure to find affordable maternity tops on this list you’ll want to wear everywhere.

Comfort is key with maternity shirts, so these tops are made with stretchy fabrics that flex to fit your body as it changes throughout pregnancy. For example, many options are blended with spandex, which is lightweight and sweat-resistant with excellent elasticity. And for even more flexibility, many T-shirts feature a long length and ruching on the sides to allow for a comfortable fit as your bump grows. What’s more, some T-shirts styles with a looser cut can also be comfortable during pregnancy, even if they’re not labeled as maternity tees. Also great: Some of these tees have built-in panels for convenient nursing, so you’ll want to wear them even after your baby is born.

As for style, you can build your maternity wardrobe around basic black, white, and gray tees — which are so easy to dress up or down — and you can mix it up with patterns or sporty designs. Whether you love a crew neck, V-neck, or another comfy style, these are the best maternity T-shirts on the market right now.
