Best of Boston

2005 Best Maternity Clothing

9 Months

Style and comfort: two concepts once forsaken by expectant moms. That is, until Katie Tagliavia’s new shop gave a maternity-sized shout-out to pregnant women everywhere. Tagliavia’s boutique, with ample couch space and a toddler play area, stocks stylin’ sweaters, designer denim, and sleek diaper bags (including a long-overdue invention: one for Dad). Which makes her almost as welcome as the stork itself.
