* Linda Harrison was pregnant and was starting to show around the end of production for ''Film/PlanetOfTheApes1968'', so Nova was carefully posed to hide it.

* ''Series/TheWalkingDead'': Alanna Masterson (Tara) was pregnant for the filming of the first half of Season 6. The tactic of putting her in baggy sweatshirts that closely match Tara's usual style has the weird effect of hiding her bump really well from the front and [[SpecialEffectsFailure not at all]] from the side. The really weird part is that Tara spends the first few episodes of the season laid up in a hospital bed, which sounds like a perfect excuse to put this trope into effect quite well if it had been done a few episodes later; but following her recovery (and when the actress was ''more'' visibly pregnant) Tara is back to doing badass things in baggy clothing and behind any convenient ScenerySensor.

* A really well-done example of this trope can be seen in Season 5 of ''Series/GameOfThrones'', when Lena Headey (Cersei) became pregnant. The costume department did an excellent job of cutting Cersei's gowns to look exactly like the dresses Cersei had been wearing for the past four years, while at the same time concealing her bump with contrasting-coloured layers configured into "slender" shapes and under long, droopy sleeves she could elegantly draw across her stomach for wider shots. Cersei's full-frontal [[spoiler:walk of shame]] in the season finale was impressively ambitious under the circumstances, and utilised a body double with her hair hanging in her face or, [[spoler:after Cersei's head is shaved]], wearing a green screen mask for the wide shots.

** Amusingly, another character, Maggie (played by the not-really-pregnant Lauren Cohen) was meant to be pregnant during the time period that Masterson was ''actually'' pregnant - resulting in a situation where the supposedly pregnant woman got up to a lot more strenuous action than one of her not-pregnant counterparts. Could be fairly reasonably justified by Tara still recovering from her injuries, however.

* Lucille Ball was in the early stages of pregnancy when filming 1951's ''Film/TheMagicCarpet''. Though not obviously showing onscreen, her costumes had to be continually let out during production. Ball also concealed her condition from Columbia executives to avoid risking contract termination.

* She suddenly wears ''black.'' Lots and lots of black... without any evidence of a funeral or a [[Film/TheMatrix Matrix]] in sight. [[note]]Black helps hide the shadow that the actress' suddenly much larger stomach casts, as well as its shape.[[/note]]

* The actress suddenly wears lots of loose, baggy clothing and heavy overcoats to conceal the hump. This can be ''very'' conspicuous if the character normally wears form-fitting clothing.

* Melissa Peterman was pregnant during season 5 of ''Series/{{Reba}]''. Similar to the ''Frasier'' example above, Peterman's character Barbra Jean's was said to have gained weight due to binge eating (even though Peterman was always slightly overweight before). By the next season, she had lost a lot of weight and that was also written into the show.
