I was excited that the maternity clothing at Old Navy was big and "ran large" when I got my order I was disappointed with the fabric. Most of what I bought was 100% cotton, I found it quite thin. I did however on two seperate occassions buy two shirts that were identical except color. As of yet I have worn one and washed it and the other is still brand new in the closet.
In this case I wore the blue shirt and the white one is new. I personally think the shirt shrank... A LOT! So if this is an issue for you then beware!!! They are two seperate hangers.
I've never been impressed with the quality of Old Navy's clothes. I only buy things from them if they are clearanced to rediculously low prices. If I only paid $2 for it I don't feel so bad about the quality!
They run pretty big. I ordered some online and had to send 1/2 back because I knew they'd be too big even at 9 months.
I will say, I have never been a huge fan of ON because the quality isn't great (but you get what you pay for right?) but with maternity clothes that I am only going to wear 6 months, I didn't mind. I did buy a great summer mat dress in which the material is fabulous!
I don't have a problem with their regular clothes, but I did notice that their maternity clothes ran large. I bought some cami tops in their store, so I was able to try them on first. They are big and the fabric is pretty thin, but I figure I'll just throw them in the dryer -- and hey, I'm only going to wear these for a few months and I'll always have something over the camis, so I can live with the not-so-great quality. I don't think I'd buy anything "nice" and I'm pretty sure I won't be shopping online -- I always like to try stuff on first anyway.
The maternity clothes they have right now are all way thinner than when I was pregnant with my son. I'm wondering if its that way just for their spring/summer line? My other maternity clothes from them are fine. I'm really careful about washing my t-shirts, I usually hang dry most things unless they are really big.
Oh, Wow! I need them to be as LONG as possible, so looks like I have to wash in cold and not dry in the dryer! Ug. Oh well. No biggie, I guess, but I would have lost a lot of tops because they would have gotten too short if it weren't for your warning. Thanks, Nicole!
