Maternity Size Guide

What size maternity clothes should I buy?

Maternity clothing sizes work the same as regular ones do, meaning, you're the same size in maternity clothes that you are in regular clothes.

If you normally wear a size medium, you'll be a maternity medium, too. If you buy a medium in the first trimester, that same medium will be a loyal companion all throughout your pregnancy (and beyond)! Cherry Melon clothing accommodates not only your growing belly and breasts but caters for normal weight gain too. 

If this is your first pregnancy, it's nearly impossible to figure out how your body will change as your pregnancy progresses. As a rule of thumb, we suggest that you stick to your pre-pregnancy size and do not 'size up'. Sizing up may lead to ill-fitting tops and pants being too big, which gives you that "dropped crotch" or "slipping down" feeling. But, everyone is different and it's important to get what's comfortable. 

We suggest buying a size up if (a) you have a very large bust (normal preggie growth excluded); (b) you feel like you have gained extra weight (above the normal weight gain range); (c) you're having twins or triplets.

Feeling a tad nervous about ordering online without the traditional "try on" experience? Fear not! Take your hip and bust measurements in centimeters and compare them to our handy-dandy size chart below:

SIZE: 32 / S / 8


With its Mandarin collar and half-button stand, this dress is soft, flowy and modern. The boho sleeve adds a delicate, feminine touch while the classic military and black print ensures you’re on-trend, no matter the season.

And let's not forget about the drawstring under the bust – your secret weapon for achieving a perfectly flattering fit that accentuates your beautiful baby bump. Because why sacrifice style for comfort when you can have both?

But that's not all – prepare to make a statement wherever you go with the drama of our maxi length. Whether you're taking a leisurely stroll through the park, attending a baby shower, or simply relaxing at home, this dress promises to keep you feeling comfortable, confident, and oh-so-chic.

Comfort, style, and easy breastfeeding – this dress ticks all the boxes!

How do I find the right size for me? As a rule of thumb, we suggest that you stick to your pre-pregnancy size. Our garments have been designed to grow with your bump and accommodate normal pregnancy weight gain.
