ShopTill You Drop
If you have the itch (and the funds) to go the full-on maternity route, stay out of the mall and check out these funky local boutiques for baby-carrying babes.
Naissance on Melrose/NOM
Celebs flock to this shop for prenatal astrology, beauty products and sexy dresses, pants and sweaters by various designers including SUSS (who also offer in-store knitting classes). 8254 Melrose Ave., L.A., (800) 505-0517
The store offers bella bands (a piece of stretchy fabric designed for wearing around the waist of your old jeans or pants that don’t fit anymore) and a great selection of pregnancy-humor tees, with messages like “Coming in November.” 1316½ Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice, (310) 392-2867
One Hot Mama Maternity
This shop sells swimwear (that doesn’t look like grandma’s), little (but big enough for your tum-tum) black dresses and more. 3246 Cahuenga Blvd. West, L.A., (323) 969-0790
Mom’s the Word
You’ll find pricey but cute-and-trendy designer stuff like Seven maternity jeans, Michael Stars tees and “Diaper Dude” bags for papa. 910 Montana Ave., Santa Monica, (310) 451-9604
Bellies, Babies & Bosoms
All three are covered at this one-stop shop, including helpful products like pregnancy pillows, stretch-mark oils and yoga stuff. 3461 N. Verdugo Rd., Glendale, (818) 541-1200
