Abstract This study aims to understand the needs of plus-size pregnant women and critical design aspects for a pregnancy support garment and to emphasize the importance of inclusive design in this important product category. The research examines the historical and societal connotations of maternity and the changes in support garment design associated with changes in the perception of the modern plus size Madonna. At the same time, it analyses the state-of-the-art in modern maternity support garments and examines data, gathered through a pilot online survey.
