3 Style Staples Every Pregnant Woman Needs


Expecting? You’re in luck. Our Editor-in-Chief’s exclusive maternity collection for A Pea in the Pod just launched, and it’s filled with staple pieces you’re going to live in from your first trimester right through the end of your pregnancy (and likely for a few months after too).
