Maternity style without the big price tag.

So really who wears maternity clothes for 9 months? Some women don’t start showing for a couple months meaning your cute maternity top might only get 5 or 6 months of wear (sometimes less!). This thought alone makes me cringe at the thought of paying $50 for a pair of maternity jeans. We’re very fortunate today to have so many options when it comes to maternity wear compared to 10 years ago when all that was available were scary tent like shirts and overalls that looked like they belonged to a farmer named Jim Bob.

Back to affordable maternity clothes…

Ask for some and pass it around! You can borrow clothes from friends, family, etc… Even if you aren’t exactly the same size, chances are you might fit it for at least a portion of your pregnancy. Plus it’s FREE! Well usually…

Buy versatile pieces. So the weather is cold right now but you’re going to be pregnant well into Summer? Buy an awesome cardigan and some tanks and tees. Also find pieces that will not only carry you through pregnancy but that will also help you out the first couple months after your little one arrives.

Now those who know me, know that I love a bargain! I’m a big fan of thrift stores and resale shops. Shopping resale is great for the environment, great on your wallet, and in all honesty used jeans are so much more comfortable than new ones 🙂 Let someone else shrink them first. So get online and ask around for great places in your area that sell gently pre-owned maternity wear, especially one where you might be able to bring back in to sell after you’re done with them.
