Are you looking for the perfect pair of plus size maternity tights or plus size maternity pantyhose?
When it comes to shopping for plus size tights, let’s face it: a lot of the time we have to take what we can get. When we add maternity into the mix, it can be even harder to find the right look…that is, if you’re not sure where to look.
If you think outside the box, you can still get all you need to feel and look fabulous while growing a baby bump (even if you have a b belly).
With a little ingenuity (and a few sizes up), you can create outfits just as glamorous with a baby in your belly as it was when it was only you.

Plus Size Maternity Tights
Are you wondering where you can buy plus size maternity tights? There are a few in-store and online options!
Amazon is my go-to recommendation for plus size maternity clothes, especially if you have Amazon Prime for 2-day shipping. Beyond that perk, Amazon makes it incredibly easy to return items if they don't fit quite right.
While Amazon has some XXL maternity tights, in the following section, you'll see plus size tights that work just as well for maternity with larger sizing options.
Motherhood Maternity is one of the few stores you can shop in person up to a 3XL for plus size maternity clothes. Their selection of maternity tights goes up to a 165lb – 220lb weight limit.
Before we move on, PinkBlush is a popular online-only option for maternity clothes. They have a plus size collection with options up to 3XL. Unfortunately, their maternity tights selection is made up only of leggings.
Target's maternity line available in stores and online, Isabel Maternity by Ingrid & Isabel, only goes to size XXL (listed as size 18 via their sizing chart). They do have maternity tights that go to a 180lb – 220lb weight limit.
Walmart offers their Bellissima Women's Maternity Tights that go up to a size 4XL. Many of their online maternity options go to a 3XL, and you might have some luck in stores.
Torrid is a go-to for plus size clothing but did you know they also have plus size maternity clothes? They sure do! They don't have maternity tights but they do have maternity leggings. Below you'll see two pairs of Torrid tights we love that you can size-up to wear throughout your plus size pregnancy and well beyond.

These plus size cat tights are a fan favorite for a good reason.
