For Girls Who Grow Plump in the Night is the 1973 and fifth studio album released by the Canterbury scene band Caravan.[2] Richard Sinclair and Steve Miller left the band prior to the recording of this album.[3] They were replaced by John G. Perry and Dave Sinclair. Geoff Richardson was added to the band.

The pregnant girl pictured on the album's gatefold cover was originally shown naked, but shortly before release Deram insisted that she had to be clothed in a nightdress. A picture of the uncensored artwork was printed in Sounds at the time.[citation needed]
