Jessica Simpson Hates Maternity Clothes

Jessica Simpson

Who did you vote for in last week’s Mom365 pregnant celebrity style poll? If you chose Jessica Simpson, you might be surprised to find out she hasn’t actually worn a lot of maternity clothes during her pregnancy. “I haven’t really gone to maternity clothes because I don’t really love maternity stuff,” she said during a recent Television Critics Association press tour for the reality competition series Fashion Star. (Simpson will be a celebrity mentor on the show starting March 13. Click here for more details.)

“It’s really challenging to find adorable stuff. And fashionable stuff and stuff that doesn’t make you look like a house,” she told E! Online. “You want stuff that’s flattering to your bump; you want to show your bump off.”

The star says she just shops in bigger sizes to accommodate her bigger body, but, driven by the lack of stylish options for pregnant women, she also announced, “The next thing you will see from the Jessica Simpson collection is maternity.” Rumors are that the line could be available as early as February.


What kind of clothes can we expect from an expectant fashionista like Simpson? She says the collection will feature “lots of cute denim.” Now you’re speaking my language, Jessica.

Do you agree with Simpson that most maternity clothes aren’t very stylish? Are you excited to see what kind of collection will come from someone who’s been there, done that so recently?
