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
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
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.
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.
