BEHIND BELLY BEAN
I am the proud mother of two beautiful, spirited, sassy and amazing daughters. I enjoyed both of my pregnancies (except the 5 months of morning sickness), and all of the planning, dreaming and preparation that came with them, but as a career mom who needed clothing for every situation from business meetings to girls’ night out and dates with my husband, I quickly realized there were few affordable options. I borrowed most of my maternity clothes from friends, and while grateful, I never felt like the fashion fit my personal style. After witnessing my friends—and their friends—I learned many of us felt the same way about fashion options, price, and lack of resources in our area—why was it so hard to be fashionably pregnant on a budget?! And with that realization, I envisioned the perfect motherhood lifestyle store with a unique shopping experience. I knew in my heart this was an idea too wonderful to keep secret. It was then that my mission was clear, and Belly Bean was, no pun intended, born.
WHO WE ARE
Owned by locals Rhett and Cassandra Bean and operated by local moms, Belly Bean offers a wide selection of affordable, on-trend maternity styles from many popular brands—both new and pre-loved—at up to 80% off regular retail. Let us help you build the perfect wardrobe within your budget. We guarantee you’ll feel confident—whether you want to keep your look professional, pretty, or playful—without breaking the bank!
And after your pregnancy, come back to Belly Bean—or let us come to you with our exclusive pick-up service!
