Size guide - maternity wear
The female body is amazing and changeable. Throughout life, it changes form and expression. And being pregnant means a beautiful, growing belly.
Our collection of plus size maternity wear follows the same sizes as always - but it takes the growing belly into account. Fits and cuts are carefully designed, keeping the pregnant body in mind and the variability that comes with it. Therefore, you will find cuts that particularly suit the growing belly. Of course, extra space for the stomach is also considered in both design and fits.
How to take your measurements 1. Measure around the bust 2. Measure around the waist 3. Measure around the hip
When you need to find the right size, it's best to start with your own measurements. In this regard, it’s a good rule of thumb that, when you need to find your measurements, you need to be able to place a finger between your body and the measuring tape. That way, when you wear clothes, they’ll fit comfortably without being tight. We work from three measuring points, as you can see in the illustration below.
To find the breast measurement, measure at the fullest place. The measuring tape should be horizontal and close to the body. If you are wearing a bra while measuring yourself, make sure that it is not too tight and the measurements become inaccurate.
The amazing thing about pregnancy is the change in the body. In particular, the waist's measurement changes throughout the pregnancy as the belly grows. That’s why we’ve designed our maternity wear so that it can be used throughout the whole pregnancy; the clothes follow the belly - regardless of what your waist size is.
You will find your hip measurement by measuring at the widest place around your hips. Keeping the measuring tape horizontal and close to the body will give the most accurate measurement. We recommend that you measure directly on the body without clothes on.
Are you in doubt about the size? Initially, use your regular Zizzi size. The clothes are designed to make room for the pregnant belly.

A nursing bra is indispensable for breastfeeding mothers, so of course we've designed some of these as well. With a nursing bra from Zizzi, the focus is on comfort and functionality, which means that you can breastfeed your baby without taking off your bra.
The body can change throughout life, and when the stomach is, for example, growing due to pregnancy, it’s nice to have maternity trousers that support and provide comfort. We have created different models so you can highlight your belly no matter the occasion.
In our range of maternity clothes, you will find everything from wrap dresses and bras to trousers and blouses that you can use all year round - all products have been created for a beautiful, changing body. Especially during and after a pregnancy.
