Maternity Fashion Flashback
Sign of the Times
Check this out -- in February 1958 it was still considered taboo to show a pregnant woman, hence the black box hiding her belly.
Off the Cuff
This lace-adorned shift, in our September 1969 issue, makes mom-to-be look like a French maid!
We're at a loss for these January 1972 "fashions." It's hard to decide which is worse -- the Mardi Gras colors or the grapes!
These floral country frocks, featured in our October 1977 issue, look like they were sewn from the curtains.
Bright colors and sharp shoulders? Yep, it's the eighties! (April 1983, to be exact).
Fresh Off the Farm
The gingham jumper, bow tie at the neck, knit sweater and shawl scream Little House on the Prairie more than July 1988. But Dad looks cute!
Bug-eye glasses, bumblebee colors, and maternity overalls combine to make one confused outfit from 1995.
A Gripe with Stripes
Head-to-toe stripes on this September 1997 ensemble say "Prison Uniform" more than "Maternity Chic."
