Best maternity christmas jumpers

Being pregnant at Christmas doesn't mean you can't enjoy it and get involved in all the festive fun. Get cosy in style this winter, with our fabulous pick of maternity Christmas jumpers that are perfect for you and your bump.

It might be a bit early but the good ones always sell out and you don't want that mad rush before the Christmas party (whether that's in person or over Zoom this year), with all the pregnancy stress you already have on your plate. Relax and let us do the hard work for you.

From puddings to reindeers, cheeky slogans to traditional Fairisle patterns, these Xmas knits are bound to make you feel festive. Treat yourself to a particularly snuggly one or buy for a mum-to-be before they sell out.

Your baby bump will make Rudolf's nose come to life in this long-sleeve top -  a great option if pregnancy is seeing you hot and bothered and you can't bear the thought of a woolly jumper. 

Everyone deserves a bit of luxury at Christmas - especially us mums-to-be - so treat yourself to a cashmere jumper. The colours aren't traditionally Christmas - but that means you can wear it beyond the festive period. Plus, it's got penguins. 

A long-sleeve T-shirt might be a bit cooler than a jumper, especially given that baby bump keeps you warmer than a hot water bottle. There's plenty of room in this top throughout your pregnancy, although you might not want to wear it in March... it's also available in navy (but we really like this cheery red colour). 

This red reindeer maternity jumper is made with a hint of cashmere for a luxurious feel so you will be comfortable and stylish. The big friendly reindeer is complete with a sequined red nose for a little festive sparkle. Fair Isle detail gives the jumper a traditional feel to keep your look classic. 

Get into the Christmas spirit with this cute sparkly multi-coloured slogan sweatshirt. Pair it with leggings and ankle boots for a casual look. And it's only a fiver!

A gorgeous metallic christmas jumper which is a perfect unique addition to your winter wardobe. Available in deep navy, heather grey or black. It's best for when baby has arrived as it's not a specific maternity jumper so there might not be too much room if your bump is big. 

Looking for a festive t-shirt instead? This fun and cotton-soft Christmas pregnancy tee from Etsy is a great staple for your upcoming winter outfits while expecting. It's easy to move around in and flatters your bump, so you'll feel snug in this, that's for sure.

This one is more like a sweatshirt than a woolly jumper, with handy stretchy sides to grow with you as your bum grows. We love the festive tractor, and this is one you can easily wear next year without your bump.

Loving the star design of this JoJo favourite, and you could wear this into the New Year too as it's not too kitsch. Available in S, M, and L sizes.

Show off your baby bump in this little pudding jumper. Made in the UK with a cotton blend so it's soft against your skin (which might be really itchy - a known side-effect during pregnancy). 

One for if you're at the start of your pregnancy, this is also a good way to announce you're pregnant if you haven't told everyone yet.


A soft and comfy long-line long-sleeve T-shirt (because a jumper might just be too hot while you've got that hot water bottle bump), with buttons down the side.
