Maternity must-have

Pregnancy fashion can be super-fun. But it can also become super-pricy. So where should you splurge? 

We recommend Blanqi’s Maternity Belly Support Tanktop — truly a win for mamas-to-be, says our second-time mom tester (Dani, above, of Burnsville) who’s due this month. 

Billed as “supportwear” — not shapewear — this wear-anywhere tank (available in black or white) is designed to ease the strains caused by pregnancy with its invisible, responsive stretch panel.

Be ready to pay about $72. But expect to wear it often, says our field tester, who called it “a little slice of heaven” in her eighth month: “O.M.G. Game changer. No more ouchy upper-back pain from the weight of my belly.
And my belly is supported instead of squished. I wear it all day every day.”

Wicking fabric draws sweat away from the body and, best of all, you don’t have to hide it under your clothes.
