Best of Boston

2007 Best Maternity Clothing

9 Months

Think the rise of mommy chic is rooted in the Hollywood baby boom? A swing through 9 Months will change your mind. Here you’ll find the real force behind the phenomenon: seriously great fashion, as in sexy silk cocktail dresses by Liz Lange, smart but ever-so-comfy trousers by Japanese Weekend, gotta-have jeans from Citizens of Humanity, and gauzy floral numbers by Maternal America. All this, and a cute little play area to distract the tykes while the shopping is under way? No wonder so many local moms-to-be are glowing.
