Dressing your pregnant belly for holidays can be tough, and that goes double when the holiday is Halloween. It sometimes seems like there's slim pickings for bump-friendly costumes. Not only are your options sometimes limited in terms of creativity, but also in terms of what you can realistically spend a whole day and night comfortable in — you can't be wriggling in and out of a complicated get up when you're going to be making dozens of trips to the bathroom. Luckily, it is possible to find Halloween costumes for pregnant women that are easy to pee in and that are cute, too.
That doesn't mean you have to dress up as a pumpkin, like approximately 99 percent of pregnant women. Whether you're looking to buy something ready to go or are willing to do a little DIY, there are fun options out there. And best of all, you might even be able to re-wear some of the pieces and get more bang for your buck.
Here are nine Halloween costume ideas for pregnant women that will have you looking fun and festive, while also still being able to run to the bathroom when your little one decides to give you a good whack in the bladder.
1A Bun In The Oven
Get literal this Halloween with a bun in the oven costume. It slips on over your own baby bump for the ultimate cornball pun. As an added bonus, your partner can get a matching “bun maker” costume.
Who says your costume needs to be cutesy when you’re pregnant on Halloween? This demon baby prop really gets into the spooky spirit of the night. All you need is a tight white shirt to go with it and you’ll be the creepiest mom-to-be in sight.
It doesn’t get much easier (or more comfortable) than this skeleton costume. All you need is the iron-on bones, and a black top and black pants to complete the look.
Another super easy and "punny" option is to dress up as a mummy-to-be. All you need is a white top and matching pair of pants, and a roll of toilet paper or white crepe paper to wrap yourself in and you’re done.
5A Gumball Machine
Sexy Halloween costumes exist even in the maternity section. This devil costume comes with horns, but you'll have to find your own maternity fishnets.
Maternity clothes are usually outrageously expensive, so why not get some extra use out of your Halloween costume? These cute maternity overalls easily pair up with a straw hat and bandana for a simple DIY farmer costume, and you can re-wear them whenever you want.
Show off your fangirl side with this Death Star iron on. You can print it out yourself, iron on a black shirt, and your costume is done. It'd be a great way to let everyone know you're getting ready to raise another little Star Wars super fan.
If you're only into Halloween because it means the winter holidays are right around the corner, a DIY snowman (or snowlady) costume is probably right up your alley. Just pair a white top with mittens and a scarf, and paint a jolly face on your bump.
