Clothes for a pregnant person

I really really don't want anyone st work to find out I'm pregnant yet.

The trouble is that I usually am slim and wear tight jeans and tops. So I suddenly start wearing billowing stuff it will be very obvious.

I used to have a really lovely dark green cotton long sleeve Zara top with a v back that was just loose fitting but I've lost it and don't seem to be able to find anything similar.

I don't have a lot of cash and also once I am telling people I'll just wear what I did previously and have bump on show (did this in my other pregnancies so have stuff of suitable length etc)

I hid my second pregnancy from work until circa 20 weeks. I had 5 outfits that wore on rotation and no one noticed the lack of variety.

Apart from one knit skirt, and one dress, from 16weeks I wore black skinny maternity jeans with a vest over the top to hide the maternity band, and then my usual tops (less tight ones obviously) and bought two tops from H&M in a size up.

As it was cold I always wore a blazer (unbuttoned) which really streamlines and hides most of the bump.

I thought it was glaring obvious but not one person guessed. So obviously the hiding worked.

Zara does oversized button down shirts.. It can hide your bump for a while

Blazers and tailored jackets. I chose to hide my pregnancy until 20 weeks too and similarly to pp, always used layers to disguise the bump. So: a vest, only slightly looser top on it and a blazer/cardigan/jacket over it. I love scarves and statement jewellery so wore a lot of that too, almost as a distraction grin but I wouldn't recommend it if it's normally not your thing.
Clothes mostly came from primark and new look, I wasn't on a hunt for quality, just short term disguise.
