Just got back from buying new clothes. It had to be done. I'm not doing maternity stuff this time around though. Got some yoga pants, cute leggings and a couple of really big graphic sweatshirts. I've never done the leggings thing before but I can see the allure. Comfy plus I look smoking hot in the plaid ones I picked out. DH very much approves. Anybody else done any fun shopping?

I went to Motherhood Maternity and strictly shopped the clearance rack. I also hit up Burlington Coat Factory. They had some really good prices. I picked up a pair of leggings too.

I'm 3 hours from the closest store with maternity clothes and online shopping has just sucked. I've returned so many pants and finally gave up. I won't be making it to the city anytime soon. I'll just have to stick to sweats. They're more comfy anyway.

This is me too. We have nothing around here. I did some online shopping last time and got lucky with the most comfy maternity jeans ever. But I mostly made due with old clothes handed down and back and forth from me and my friends. This time I'm just sticking to stretchy pants and big comfy shirts. No fuss no muss.

I bought some online cause I didn't have cold weather clothes (like long sleeves and sweaters) that would be maternity appropriate. Since I already want to be in maternity clothes... I bought some. but only a few tops and a dress. Otherwise, the old stuff works.

I bought 4 pairs of maternity pants and 2 short sleeved shirts from Motherhood when they were on clearance and additional 30% off. I went to Burlington and bought 2 pairs of shorts for super cheap. I hate paying full price for clothes!

I borrowed a lot of maternity clothes with my last pregnancy but my SILs are still using them now. In Florida it's only chilly/cold for about 3 months so I don't want to bother buying long sleeved shirts. I'll just wear a light weight jacket inside if I'm cold!

I bought a few things from Old Navy & JCPenney, and a co-worker let me borrow a ton of maternity work pants, so that has been helpful.

I have a bunch of tunic tops and shirt/sweater dresses, so those are working out for now. I'm going to try and limit how much maternity clothes I actually buy... I went into H&M last week and they had a ton of "oversized" clothes that will work well for maternity clothes and hopefully I can wear them post-baby too.

I picked up a good handful of shirts off facebook Second hand is the way to go! I got a few pairs of pants too, but haven't tried them on yet so not sure they will work. I still fit into regular jeans - I had a few pairs that were too big, so now I'm just wearing those So nice to have shirts that fit though. Now I just need to get a few hoodies cause these ones are getting tough to zip up!

I have four kids seven and under, So I have tons of maternity clothing, however this time around I have a job so my mumu and lounge wear just isn't going to cut it! I keep asking my DH to find my maternity clothing and it has not become a priority to him. So no shopping has happened yet.

So far I'm still fitting in my clothes but my belly is starting to pop. I'm not sure where I'll find maternity jeans for me (I'm very short lol). Even the "short" jeans at the stores are too long for me.

This is my problem. Buying pants is a nightmare. Everything drags. The first store I went to must have only made yoga pants for Amazonians.

I'm still fitting my regular clothes for the most part. Some pants I can no longer button though so I am using a belly band with those ones. I also already own a lot of leggings and comfy loose fitting tops or dresses. I should be good to go (especially with hand-me-downs). Though I must admit that I do get pretty picky about my clothes, so as I get bigger I very well may start investing in my own stuff to match my own style.

The "short" length is usually just right for me but hard to find especially if I'm just searching clearance or used.


So, if I buy new I safety pin hem then pants and wear them a few times to make sure they don't shrink. I have had it happen that the pants have shrunk to the right length so I didn't need to actually hem them. After that, I get my mom to cut and do a real hem on my work pants or yoga type pants. If they're just jeans I roll them up or let them bunch around my ankles depending on just how long they are.

Did Emily get those pants to you? It was just two pairs of more dressy up pants that we thought you could use at work. I think they are a size extra small so they should fit you.

Yes! She did and they will definitely work well as soon as I start needing more room for the growing belly. I am glad I have a couple of pairs because otherwise co-workers would just have to deal with me coming in sweats or leggings. ha!

I just bought a few pants and shirts on eBay. I got lucky with the jeans and I love them!

Hey, Now-a-days trend of Online shopping is increasing rapidly. Most people lean toward Online shopping instead of visiting at physical stores. A couple of days back, My cousin was organizing a surprise birthday party for her mother, So she was planning to give wholesale designer sunglasses to guest as a gift. Looking on the Internet she came to know about fashion sunglasses suppliers selling sunglasses in bulk. So she purchased wholesale sunglasses in bulk at a cheap.
