I hate shopping for maternity clothes! Most stores only have like 3 pieces to choose from and I feel like they are either really expensive or ugly and don't fit well. I've tried Zulily but I think most of there tops are still too expensive and I don't like getting pants from there because you can't return things if they don't fit. Does anyone have suggestions on where to find cute reasonably priced maternity clothes?
I've been to several stores and I think maternity clothes in general are just really ugly/frumpy or just odd right now. I did not have this issue with my first pregnancy! Stores recommended to me were Kohls, Old Navy, and Target and I have always used Motherhood but they can be on the pricier end.
Maternity clothes are uuuuuuugly! Or at least the ones I saw were. I was expecting better lol. I think I'll just have to live in maxi dresses, shorts with elastic waist bands and cheap singlets that I don't care about stretching.
This is why I have yet to buy anything this pregnancy. Money is tight especially between Christmas and paying for my delivery of this baby ($2500 and I have only been to the doctor twice!!! A little ridiculous no?) and we need a new van ASAP (another $1,500 down in cash). So, yeah- I have no interest in buying butt ugly clothes that don't really fit!! Ugh. I have found some okay stuff at gap and old navy in the past. I have one pair of stretchy regular jeans that are perfect pregnancy jeans because they are so low (uncomfortably low when I'm not pregnant but I always wear my shirts really long) from Maurice's- I think the brand is hydraulic?? They fit perfectly before I got pregnant (well all my jeans are big in the waist bc of how I'm shaped) and are still very comfy now. Also, my sister handed me down a bunch of maternity and it's all just longer regular looking shirts. If you just get some regular clothes slightly bigger maybe that would work better and then you have some clothes to wear post pregnancy anyway???
Whatever I find makes me look ridiculous. Either super bright patterns or fluffy stuff. I'm a bigger person so it would be plus size and I guess patterned ware what you're supposed to wear. This is my personal opinion though. I like jeans and t-shirts.
I stick to yoga like pants and hoodies. So much easier for me to get through pregnancy like that.
Not sure if it has been mentioned but you could try local thrift shops...when I was in the States in the fall I got a great pair of maternity jeans for 5 bucks at Savers. I think they usually have a decent selection of mat. wear too since it is clothing that is only worn for a short amount of time.
Most of my maternity stuff comes from H&M but I am going to try looking at Primark, hopefully in January. Primark stuff is super cheap btw...there is no way I'm going to be throwing down 50 bucks for a pair of pants that I will only wear for a few months.
