Who said you had to sacrifice fashion when expecting? This is not your mother’s maternity wear. Fashion forward styles are on point with the latest trends stepping off of the runways, but what makes today’s maternity wear unique is that it utilizes silhouettes that flatter your growing belly and gives you the support you need in the later months. Whether you’re looking for something casual or for the office, these vendors will keep you looking fabulous over the next nine months.

Bella Belli Maternity
790 North Old Woodward
Birmingham, MI
(248) 203-2220
www.bellabellimaternity.com

The owner of Bella Belli Maternity and her friends experienced a baby boom of their own in 2003, and found that the Detroit Metro didn’t have the kinds of clothes they were looking for. So a few years later, she decided to open a shop which exclusively catered to expecting women who wanted something unique. These ladies know what works for the growing belly and what doesn’t. The clothes are on trend with the current fashions that are hitting the runways, but are priced for growing households. The goal is to make every woman look and feel her best throughout her pregnancy.
