A close-fitting all-in-one version of the jumpsuit for pregnant women is proving a fashion huge hit, after a host of expectant stars shared photos of themselves wearing one.
Dubbed ‘the bumpsuit’, and made by a brand of the same name, the ‘spray on’ maternity wear has been seen in Instagram snaps of stars including Helen Flanagan, Kelly Rowland and Georgia Kousoulou.
Its makers claim that wearing ‘just one continuous base layer with no bands or seams that dig in’ is the key to the garment’s increasing popularity – although, with a zipper at the back, some have questioned how easy it is to go to the loo in.
This week, Coronation Street actress Flanagan, 30, who’s heavily pregnant with her third child, shared photos of herself wearing a black long-sleeved version, showing off her bump in its full glory.

Nothing for it but the bumpsuit! Coronation Street actress Flanagan, 30, who’s heavily pregnant with her third child, sported an all-in-one black long-sleeved bumpsuit this week, which she teamed with chunky black lace up boots
The soap star, who’s already mum to daughters Delilah and Matilda with her footballer fiancé Scott Sinclair, 31, sported this mulberry-hued bumpsuit earlier on in her pregnancy
The Penelope version of the Bumpsuit, similar to the one worn by the actress, retails at $155 (£111).
Other versions of the clingy attire, many with celebrity names including The Gigi, The Bianca and The Cindy, include dresses, sleeveless bodysuits and halter-neck all-in-ones.
Flanagan, who said putting shoes on was now a struggle at 38 weeks gone, finished the look with a pair of chunky black-soled lace-up boots. The soap star is already mum to daughters Delilah and Matilda with her footballer fiancé Scott Sinclair, 31.
And TOWIE star Georgia Kousoulou offered up another look for the bumpsuit, wearing a pretty sleeveless dove grey version.
The reality television celebrity, 29, who is expecting her first child with her long-term boyfriend and co-star Tommy Mallett, was seen cradling her blooming bump while striking a pose for the camera.
Celebrity stylist Rachel Gold told FEMAIL while the bumpsuit screams of happy pregnancy vibes, she’d question the practicalities of wearing one considering pregnancy puts huge pressure on the bladder.
‘The bumpsuit is a celebration of a super happy event, and you can style it in lots of different ways, including with a short jacket or a gorgeous wrap.
‘One question though, do you have to take the entire thing of to pop to the loo?’

The bumpsuit’s founder, Nicole Trunfio, says the key to the garment’s popularity is that it comprises ‘one continuous base layer with no bands or seams that dig into a mother’s precious growing bump’
London fashionista @thefashionbugblog, who’s 40 weeks pregnant, posted a photo of herself at 40 weeks saying the stretchy all-in-one was the ‘only thing that fits me now’
Earlier this year, former Destiny’s Child star Kelly Rowland proved that maternity wear can be anything but frumpy in a skin-tight black leotard bumpsuit.
The singer wore the glamorous outfit under patent over-the-knee black heels in a video of her sashaying in her garden at her Los Angeles home. The star, 39, already mother to Titan, six, gave birth to her baby boy Noah in February.
In November, model-turned-author Emily Ratajkowski, who’s expecting a baby with husband Sebatian Bear-McClard posed in a white sleeveless bumpsuit dress.

And fashion bloggers and influencers are also firmly on board with the concept.

Nicole Trunfio, bumpsuit’s founder says in a post on her website that the garment is a hit with pregnant women because it has ‘one continuous base layer with no bands or seams that dig into a mother’s precious growing bump.
‘The material gently stretches with the body as it transitions through the seasons of pregnancy and all other stages of womanhood’.
