Maternity Size Charts
Maternity sizes work the same as regular clothing sizes. That is, if you're normally a size "small," you'll still be a small in maternity sizes. Same thing with numbered sizes: If you were an 8 pre-pregnancy, look for items in that size.
And when it comes to jeans, particularly the designer sort that are labeled by waist size (for example, 28-inch), you'll still shop for a pair in that same size – just the maternity version. (True, your waist is no longer 28 inches but designers make it easier to find your current size by sticking with your pre-pregnancy number.)
See the charts below for a quick guide to finding the size that fits you best!

How to Measure
Chest: With your arms relaxed at your sides, measure around the fullest part of your chest.
Hips: With your feet approximately 6' apart, measure around the fullest part if your hip. This area usually corresponds to the top of your legs.
Inseam: Measure from the top of your inner thigh down to the bottom of your ankle.
