Three Maternity Costumes to Buy (or Make at Home)
Bun in the Oven Couples’ Costume â€” The oven is one-size-fits-most, with retailers including expectant mothers in that claim. And yes, the door does open, although there’s no word on whether that bun is permanently attached inside. How could you not toss a baby doll in there? Oh, wait, nevermind.
Goddesses and Renaissance Women â€” These technically are plus-size outfits, not maternity costumes. But hey, a toga is a toga, and motherhood mythology today is often wrapped up in goddess imagery. So, there ya go.
Pigs in a Blanket
â€” This is a pig hat and a fleece blanket with four pig heads
attached (made from polyester and foam). It appears you simply wrap the blanket around you, although a portion may hook onto a
latch at your neck (notice in the photo how the blanket jabs awkwardly toward the woman’s neck). Sizing varies by retailer; I’ve seen 4 to 14 and 10 to 12 claimed.
The nice thing about all of these costumes is that you could make them yourself with some cardboard, old curtains or decapitated plush animals.
