Pregnant Halloween Costumes
The maternity wardrobe. It’s a blessing and a curse. Waistbands are now dicey territory and shirts are determined to ride up that adorable, ever-growing bump. At the same time, you’re looking rather stunning in over-size sweaters and fitted tops look cuter than ever before. If you’re like most pregnant women, you’ve gained a sort of uniform for your day-to-day wardrobe. It’s handy but now that a costume party is on the horizon, it’s time to have a little fun! If you’re dressing up while pregnant, be sure to think ahead. After all, your belly is going to change from week to week so if you’re planning for a Halloween party a month from now, be sure that your maternity Halloween costume ideas are accommodating. Adjustable or one size fits all costumes are a great choice for those who aren’t sure just how much bigger your belly is going to get. If you want something more fitted and you’re already in between sizes, consider purchasing one of our plus-size maternity Halloween costumes or simply size up when buying a fit and flare or maxi dress.
Reading ahead, you’ll find plenty of ideas for cute pregnant Halloween costumes, many of which take the practical side of things into concern. For example, many of these costumes are oversized or have open fronts which means there’s room to grow if you’re ordering your ensemble a month ahead of time. We’ve also tried to stray away from anything too cumbersome for bathroom breaks because, well, we see you! You might be planning on going all out this Halloween. Or you could just want pregnant Halloween outfits to wear around town and at the house to make handing out candy extra festive. Either way, we’re sure you’ll be on the right track after reading through these ideas!
Then again, you might want to wear something lightweight if you live in a warm climate. That’s where tunic options like this bee costume come in. It’s one size fits most, so it will fit most bellies up until the watermelon stage. Wear it over a tank top and black leggings and you’ll have a costume that you’ll probably want to wear after you’ve had your baby as well!
Pregnant Avocado Costume
Everyone knows that the Avocado maternity costume is a modern classic. That brown nut in the center of the brilliant green fruit is perfectly shaped for a baby bump. And when it comes to costume ideas for pregnant moms, flaunting the bump is part of the fun! As this avocado costume is a tunic style, it can fit over your clothes and work with you as your size changes. Let’s have an avocado toast to one of the best pregnant costumes of our generation!
Pumpkin Maternity Shirt
If you want a costume that you can wear all day on Halloween, this pumpkin tunic is a great choice! Perfectly adorable with leggings and boots, all you have to do is size up to make this work with your belly. There’s no need to wait until Halloween night to wear this look. It’s perfect for pumpkin picking with the kids as well as getting together with friends on Halloween night!

Famous Pregnant characters
If you want to dress up as someone iconic and instantly recognizable, we’ve included a few characters both fictional and real. First off, ever since 2007 Juno and her nerdy boyfriend, Paulie, have been a pregnancy couple costume go-to. All you need is a fitted striped t-shirt to fit over your baby bump and a tank top and sweatbands for your partner. While pop culture moves quickly, we also think that Beyonce’s many iconic pregnancy ensembles would make you feel like a (wait, scratch that) THE queen. If you’re craving a seriously spooky costume, try dressing up like Mia Farrow in Rosemary’s baby. Using a large nightgown, a short haircut, a prop knife, and some makeup to make your face look gaunt and worried, you could have some serious sinister fun with this.
If you’re looking for a costume that’s sure to keep you warm in the coldest of Halloween weather (looking at you Minnesota) try dressing up as Marge Gunderson from Fargo. All you need is a parka, a hunter-style hat, and a sheriff badge to make this character come to life!

How to make a Fake Pregnant Belly
All right. You aren’t expecting a little one in a couple of months, but you do want to dress up as a pregnant character. We see you! There are plenty of ways to fake a pregnant belly but if you want to show your belly off, this belly prop is a must. Consider adhering it to your skin with spirit gum if you want it to fit realistically. If you simply want the bump without realistic skin texture, there are a few ways to DIY it. Check out an example below!
Don’t wear a ball or a balloon! Instead, consider using a prop with a half-globe shape, such as a bike helmet. Hide any weird bump or holes with masking tape, nylon, or cheesecloth. Then attach the shape to your torso by wrapping a stretchy athletic bandage around the prop and your waist. Keep layering until the prop feels secure. You don’t want your bump to slip!
