You’ve probably looked around for Beyoncé’s pregnancy outfit details and almost chocked at the sight of the retailing prices. Who knew a Kimono could be this expensive ($22,000 Gucci), right?

I’ve saved you some time, and found amazing alternatives (and sometimes the exact items) to recreate Queen Bee’s magnificent pregnancy style. Most of the outfits are not maternity, but really stretchy, so you can fit your beautiful baby bump! (Pregnant or not those looks are still amazing). And while there is nothing like feeling yourself and looking your best, who better to learn from than Beyoncé herself?

Look 1: Mismatched Underwear Never Looked This Good
