Maternity polo shirts – for pregnancy, training and nursing
You are probably already aware of the lack of maternity polo shirts online and in store. I have absolutely no idea why this is. There’s a reasonable amount of people wanting and searching for this. I’m almost thinking about making my own. Almost. Until this happens, you’ll have to do with what’s available right now.
Right now, there are two options, in my opinion. Number one is, size up. If it’s a little stretchy this will probably get you through most of the pregnancy. At least the part where you still can move around enough to actually exercise. Or, number two, get one of the available maternity polo shirts. There are one or two decent to choose from.
Maternity polo shirt for sports
This must be the best maternity polo shirt available for sports. Unfortunately also the most expensive. But you do get a proper maternity shirt that will fit you all through your pregnancy. Might be worth investing in if you think you’ll be able to exercise and play for awhile. Playingnine offers fitted maternity clothes for golf and tennis. This polo shirt has ruched sides for a nice fit and an adjustable zipper in the front. It comes in 4 different colors, pink, blue, yellow and white.

Stretchy and loose fit
You can’t really tell from the picture but this polo shirt is both stretchy and big in size. If you look through the customer review pictures you’ll get a better sense of the true fit. After going through tons of options, my choice landed on this one. It is obviously not a maternity polo shirt but an alternative for sizing up and making it work. The fabric it made of 12% elastane so it will expand with you. They market it as performance wear but I think it works as a uniform as well. There are a couple of different colors to choose from.

Long maternity polo shirt
Here’s another polo shirt that is actually a maternity shirt. I think the picture is a little misleading. It does have a long fit, but it will not look as weirdly long as the picture seem to show. When you’re in month 8 and 9 your belly will probably be quite big and you are going to need the length to cover you belly. You don’t want it to peek out. Otherwise it seems like a pretty functional nice quality polo. 100 % cotton, stain resistant fabric and covered neck seams. The stain resistant thing might be a thing after giving birth as well. Who knows? This might be your favorite shirt.

A plus size option
Another way to size up is to look at the plus size shirts. They tend to have a little different cut and account for a bigger belly area. This one also is a little longer which will help to cover your growing belly. It’s reasonably priced, has good reviews, and looks really nice. They’re lightweight and will keep you cool and comfortable (we tend to sweat when we’re pregnant). It will work great for work and causal things you have going on.

Long sleeve maternity nursing polo
I’m guessing most people are looking for maternity polo shirts for sports, but if you’re not this might be something you’ll like. At writing moment ASOS has a few long sleeve maternity polo shirts available. What’s even better is that they’re nursing polos. That means you can wear them from bump to baby.

Got some other options?
Have you managed to find some other nice maternity polo shirts online? Or in store? Please let the rest of us know.
Stay cool ladies.
Makes me feel rather broody! Very different niche this is – maternity sportwear for women. I really like the idea and the knitted clothes for newborns is really to die for!
Keep up the good work and let me in on more of the juicey details as you get more clothes in maternity fashion.
I will be watching this space with anticipation.
Thanks. Maternity sports wear is getting bigger and bigger. I love that it encourages to stay fit and healthy all through the pregnancy.
You are right that there are not many choices when it comes to maternity polo shirts in the market. I was shopping for my daughters a while back and none were available in sizes that would enable them to wear the options for long. Many were too tight, some did not come in the bigger sizes that would work for more than a week or two, etc.
It seems that may be changing and I am glad that I came across this review article on maternity polo shirts. There is still time to get a couple of the bigger ones that will work while they are still wanting one or two. It is getting to be Summer, and the heat is cranking up. The polo shirts are perfect for that heat.
The one that I like and will get is the polo shirt for golf. As you say it is perhaps the most expensive, but it can be worn to the end of the pregnancy and it is of very good quality, so the extra money spent will be worth it. Plus it is a gift for my girls (two that are pregnant!). Thanks for the tips and review, off to shop now!
Thanks. I’m sure your girls will be very happy with your gifts. =)
Thank you so much for the awesome post! This is something that I have been looking for for my wife for a while! She is always worried when she gets pregnant because it’s hard for her to find stylish cloths. She loves polo shirts, and I know she would love that longer one.
I have lots of tips on stylish maternity wear. She’s welcome to contact me directly or just read my blog. =)
Come to think of it, you are absolutely right. I couldn’t find any polo shirts when I was pregnant that fitted. But even looking around now I don’t see any in preggy shops. The ones that you show here are most flattering and don’t look like the tents one would expect.
I especially like the one with the ruching on the side. This feature is very feminine and attractive and that is the shirt I would choose, pregnant or not.
I like the ruched sides too. Not just for polo shirts. They really make a difference for the fit on a pregnant body.
Thank you very much for this review, myself and my wife have been searching for comfortable polo shirts she can wear while carrying my baby. I always complain when I see women in the neighborhood carry long tummy with clothing just bear covering the upper part of the tummy.
I love and will go with the long maternity polo shirt, I wish it will cover her tummy and still bring out her slim shape
