A Pea in the Pod Maternity, or “Pea in Pod,” is a chain of style- and function-oriented maternity stores that appear across the United States and in a few other countries. Their clothes are fairly expensive given their limited periods of use, but they are stylish enough to receive celebrity endorsements.

Pea in Pod offers a full assortment of maternity clothes, including: tops, bottoms, dresses, lingerie, sleepwear, coats, swimwear, loungewear, and nursing wear. They also provide gadgets, skin care, pillows, and nutritional supplies such as snack bars, “Preggie Pops,” and supplements.

As of August 2010, prices for Pea in Pod brand clothing range from a $28 scoop neck T shirt to a $300 cashmere cardigan. The store also features several designers, including Lavish by Heidi Klum and a couple dozen others, which are subject to their own, comparable pricing.

A thorough online store provides the full catalog of Pea in the Pod maternity clothes. The site features an easy-to-navigate series of pull down windows under the product styles listed above, while additional search functions allow them to be sorted by price, size, name, or bestsellers. Each product includes prices, descriptions, and photographs and can be purchased directly from the store with a $6 shipping fee. For the bargain-conscious, Pea in Pod also provides deals and sales for every category, with clearance offers lowering costs from, for example, $38 to $9.

Among Pea in Pod’s best-selling items are one of their gadgets: the Pea in the Pod Medela breast pumps. These expensive devices ring in at $279, or $379 for the hands-free version. Both feature a “fashionable yet discreet” tote bag which, coincidentally, goes quite well with their clothing lines.

Pea in Pod boasts several celebrities who have chosen their clothes. Their product site includes visual endorsements from Christina Applegate, Amy Adams, Catherine Bell, Danica McKellar, and Jodie Sweetin, all looking quite confident in their chosen apparel.

Retail stores can be found in forty United States locations, with stores concentrated in California, the northern Midwest, Florida, and New England. A full map is available through Map Muse. Pea in Pod also maintains stores in Canada, Kuwait, UAE, Saudi Arabia, and India, and they provide international shipping elsewhere.

They have recently expanded into the wellness industry with Edamame Maternity Spas, as well.
