5 Ways to Wear Your Husbands Clothes In Your Third Trimester

Ok I’m officially out of that cute baby bump stage, and now to the point where I kinda feel like a whale…and not the cute friendly Free Willy whale that you cheer for at the end of the movie, but like the Moby Dick whale that destroys everything it encounters…ok so I’ve never seen Free Willy, or read Moby Dick, but I am pretty sure that is how both of their stories go, and my point is I feel big.

Anyways that is enough random babble for the moment. What I am trying to get at is that my growing belly is shrinking my wardrobe. If there are any other third trimester mommas out there then you know the struggle is real.  The solution? I’ve started to wear my husbands clothes.

Confession: I’m not really fashion forward…and raiding my husbands closet probably doesn’t help my fashion credibility, but desperate times call for desperate measures. So here are a few outfits that I came up with for my new ‘husband chic’ look.


A white button up shirt is always a classic, and I’m sure you can find one in almost any mans closet. Give yourself a little bit of shape (haha as if you don’t have enough curves) by adding a belt above your bump. Don’t have any belts that fit? Me neither, I just used one of his ties instead.


I like this outfit because it gives new life to a summer dress I had. Taking a simple button up shirt, I tied it above ‘the bump’, then tucked the ends up into the shirt. Now I’m a little more dressed up, and can get away with wearing this summer dress all year round.


White t-shirts are my husbands go to when he’s home, so we always have lots on hand. All I did was add a statement necklace, and top it with a leather jacket. Just don’t ask me to zip up the jacket because there is no way that thing is stretching around this belly.


Cozy and comfy for the win! Find a sweater, throw on a toque (thats a hat for all the non-Canadians out there) and go play in the snow.


Plaid is back in (or so I’m told)…and Batman never went out of style. So why not put them together and call it a day.


Ok DO NOT wear this. These cut off shorts were part of a Halloween costume that we made about 8 years ago. Unfortunately my husband refuses to get rid of them. Therefore this outfit is now being called ‘WTF is in my husbands closet’.

If you have gone through the same pregnancy problem as me, I would love to hear how you dressed ‘the bump’ in your last few months!

    I like these tips! I never really thought about wearing my husband’s clothing in the 3rd trimester but I should because I haven’t been buying any new maternity clothing. Although, I did wear is ugly sweater during Christmas when mine no longer fit. 🙂

      Lol yea, it’s a nice alternative to having to go out and buy new clothes that you’ll only wear for 3 months
