Want to look cute at the hospital with minimal amount of effort? The delivery robe is the way to go. It is super easy to through on and will make you look and feel so much better. Did I mention it’s probably the most comfortable piece of clothing ever made? Especially if you need to breastfeed all the time. I don’t see any downsides putting one in the hospital bag.
Where to find plus size delivery robes
Finding cute plus size delivery robes aren’t too hard. Unless you need something over 3XL. If you do, you’re in trouble. 3 of my favorite online stores for plus size maternity clothes offers really nice delivery robes. It is Pinkblush, Amazon and Motherhood Maternity. But none of them offer anything over 3XL. Amazon might, but I haven’t been able to find something that also looks nice as well. If you do, or have, please share with the rest of us.
If you’re looking for f a delivery robe over 3XL I would check out Etsy. There you can order handmade stuff that is made completely according to your measurements. Just make sure both the seller and the reviews seem trustworthy.
Short description of Pinkblush
Pinkblush is a place where fashion meets motherhood. They are focusing on the modern mother who wants to be stylish and trendy. It should be affordable to keep your style all through the pregnancy and beyond. Versatility and quality are key features. They want to make clothes you will wear over and over again. Even after your pregnancy.
My thoughts on Pinkblush
For me, Pinkblush is one of the top three online maternity clothing stores. They have fresh fashionable maternity and nursing clothes in all sizes. And they focus on flexible outfits. I always strive to buy and recommend things that can be repurposed and used during and after being pregnant. It’s not the cheapest place but it is definitely affordable and priceworthy.
I think this is such a beautiful delivery robe. The color, the floral print and the lace trim. It will light up any delivery room. The tie closure gives it a flexible fit and soft, breathable, luxurious feel. Perfect for visitors and first photos with your baby. And don’t just pack it in your hospital bag. Use it before and after pregnancy as well and make the most of your purchase.
This is quite similar to the first one. But instead of a floral pattern you got 17 beautiful colors to choose from. It’s lightweight and very comfortable. I prefer this length as it is easier to move around, and it keeps you warm without making you sweat.
After giving birth, most of us don’t feel super hot. On the other hand, you’re probably pretty worn out. I only brought comfortable sweatpants and t-shirts the first time I gave birth. And that didn’t exactly help to make me look more alive. Don’t get me wrong, I was beaming with love, but I looked like a wreck. A delivery robe in lovely colors is so easy to put on and will make you look more like the love you feel. This one is a little longer and there’s 5 floral patterns available.
If you haven’t seen anything you like yet, you have to at least peek at the other options. I think Pinkblush has so many gorgeous delivery robes.
Short description of Amazon
You probably already have a notion and opinion on Amazon. They’re a huge multinational technology company that is pretty hard to miss. It is one of the big four. Right next to the giants Google, Apple and Facebook. It’s the largest e-commerce marketplace which means you can find millions of products here. It started with just books, but now they sell almost everything you can think of. Including a lot of maternity and nursing clothes and accessories.
My thoughts on Amazon
Amazon has millions of products. Which is great. But it’s also a bit of a problem. It can be hard to find the goodies. You can certainly strike a bargain here, but you can just as easily feel ripped off. There’s no guarantees here. I usually operate according to the following rules. 1. If it seems to good too be true, it probably is. 2. Things marked Amazons Choice are usually good. 3. Does the products have a lot of good reliable reviews (with emphasis on reliable). If these boxes are checked I feel pretty safe buying it. If I am still not satisfied with the product, it is easy to return.
Let's start with a comfortable classic cotton robe in mid-calf length. It has practical side pockets and there's 9 deep colors to choose from. The robe has a couple of nice details, making it stand out from competitors. The waistband is a little shiny giving it an extra luxurious touch. There is an inside tie that keeps it from sliding open and also gives it a better fit to your body. I also like both like, and don't like, that it's a regular robe. It doesn't scream delivery which makes easier to use even after pregnancy. And oh, it's an Amazon number 1 Best seller.
How about a nice lightweight robe with feminine satin trim? It has not just one but two belt positions. Why? To make you look great when you're pregnant AND after. Use the higher position to get the empire waist when you are pregnant and the lower position for the traditional around the wait afterwards. You also get extra deep pockets for all the nursing essentials you'll be carrying around (phone, pads, snacks, etc.).
I have never heard that expression before, housecoat. But I need one. It's not the most elegant option but I think it's soo cute. It does come in solid colors as well if you want to tone down the youth feel a bit. There's also a shorter version but I don't think it's half as playful. I can totally see myself wearing this around the house with my two-year-old and a baby all day long. Just zipping it open when it's time to breastfeed. Two big pockets fro snacks, phone and some nursing pads.
Short description of Motherhood Maternity
Motherhood Maternity wants us moms to be beautiful inside and out. Since we have the most important job in the world that requires us to put ourselves aside a lot of the time, they want to help us feel and look good. Creating and maintaining our own style during motherhood should be fun and easy to accomplish.
My thoughts on Motherhood Maternity
I'm not sure I'm 100 % right, but I think Motherhood Maternitys' clothes are for a little more mature mom. Their collections are absolutely not old and boring. On the contrary. They're fresh and modern. But they're not super youthful and edgy. A little safer. With that said, you should definitely check out their goods and see if they got some stuff for you. You'll find good prices and stuff that can make your maternity wardrobe more fun and versatile.
This is a pretty standard delivery robe but with nice lace details (and a nice price). It has a relaxed design and tie front and should fit you right up to the big moment. The long arms will keep you snug and warm during late night feedings. And it's so comfortable you might want to start to live in it. Choose between a light pink or a dark black.
Another classic robe but with that little extra something. At first sight you might think it's a little overpriced, but you actually get both a nursing robe and a nightgown. The nightgown has that great clip down nursing function that is easy to operate with one hand. Both have that cute pink lace details. You can wear them together or separately. They're made of jersey knit that is super smooth against the skin.
I think the prettiest plus size delivery robes from Motherhood Maternity comes in sets of 2 or 3. This is a 3-piece set that includes a nursing robe, tank top and pants. The tank top has a one-hand clip-down nursing feature and a shelf bra. I don't think the bra gives that much support so if you're in need of that you might want to look elsewhere. It does have those lovely shiny slivery details on the robe and tank though. And the price is very reasonable.
Did you find one you like?
I hope you did. In that case you can check that box and get back to relaxing and being excited about the arrival. In writing moment, I only have 8 weeks left (depending on when she decides she's ready for the world of course). I haven't packed my hospital bag yet. But I soon have collected everything I need. Planning is half the fun.
Hey! Here are some great tips on plus size hospital gowns as well.
