I dreaded buying maternity clothes but was so happy when I did. I'm so much more comfortable now. I love the secret fit pants/shorts/capris from Motherhood (also Kohls sells them under the Oh Baby! brand name). I started wearing maternity pants around 10 weeks or so, maybe a little sooner. I still wear some of non-maternity shirts because I like the tighter fit than maternity shirts - maternity shirts are so flowy on me they make me feel huge.
Have fun shopping! (I recommend buying at least one pair of pants that are a size bigger than you are now, even though they recommend buying your regular size...I have grown out of most of my maternity pants now....very depressing)
I was dragging my feet buying maternity clothes but finally gave in 2 weeks ago. I am so happy I did because I am much more comfortable! I don't know why I was torturing myself trying to fit into my hard to button pants!
. Thanks .hOOdihoo.this. for another beautiful siggy!
I had field work to do for the last two days, and the thought of suffering out there in the heat in my old, tight jeans finally forced me to sort through the maternity clothes my friend gave me, and I found a great pair of secret fit pants that I've been wearing ever since. It was SO WORTH IT to be comfortable!!! My next challenge will be going through my closet and dresser and replacing all the stuff that I won't be able to wear for probably a year or so with all the maternity clothes. That's much more scary than just pulling something randomly out of a bag on the floor...it will mean acknowledging that all those cute clothes I have (and I own a LOT of clothes) will have to go in boxes for awhile, hopefully not indefinitely...
I have to go too! My jeans, my one and only pair left I can't button and I use and elastic to keep them tied and this week I can't even close the zipper on them! LOL I really need to buy a good pair of maternity jeans that I can wear for a while. I've got some amazing shorts that I bought at a regular store, but they have a large elastic material band that folds over and is very comfy for my growing belly So you don't necessarily need to buy maternity, you can sometimes find cool stuff in regular stores too. I officially bought a cool bathing suite which is a tank top with room to grow. It was alot of fun shopping! Have fun!
Wow...I feel like I am so early...I have to go too, but have been holding my regular pants together with an elastic for about a week or so because my pants are too tight. (in my defense, my jeans were tight BEFORE I got pg...)
I dreaded spending extra money on clothes that may not even be in the right season the next time around...but I agree with Lauren...it's been wonderful to not have to deal with buttons or zippers or anything like in order to go to the bathroom...the elastic waistband is a lifesaver!!!
Thank you all so much for responding! I bought a lot (already bought some dresses and shirts that are loose in the waist and they feel great)
I love the maternity jeans! They feel amazing. Nothing having that tight zipper/button anymore, such a relieve
As promissed, I am making a post right now with all clothes I bought (please know there are a LOT of pictures )
I have searched through a lot of stores to find some great fitting jeans. They do not have the stores/brands you named, but I have bought some from mamalicious which I can recommend. I even bought a short jeans skirt
The elastics are made of lycra and I love it because it does not leave a mark like some other elastics do
