maternity clothes--how long after having the baby(ies) did you keep wearing them?

Let's face it, some maternity fashions are so comfy and cute that you could get away with adding them to your normal wardrobe....have you?
Several of the girls who work at Motherhood at the local mall tell me that they wear the secret fit belly pants "just because."
The capris I bought today are so awesome I think I am going to just keep wearing them long after I have this baby. They are better than any capris I have ever bought, the length and cut and fit are just perfect.

  • Um, today. Theyre the only jeans I own that fit! And the shirts hide my stomach. Mine didnt look like materity clothes and I was one of the smaller pregnant women. But I'm working on it!

  • the last time I wore maternity clothes was the day I went into the hospital. The ones I was wearing by that time would have been way to big to wear without the baby belly

  • I got rid of them as soon as I got home. As comfy as the are, the fit just isn't right without the belly.

  • Most of mine would NOT fit after my girly was born, but I do have a pair of comfy, velor pants that my MIL bought me when I was preggie and I LOVE those. My baby is almost a year old and I still wear them all the time.

  • I had to buy alot of professional maternity clothes when I was pregnant, and summer clothes because that's when I was big 7-8 months and I bought tanks, capris, and a pair of jeans. Up until I was 5 months I just bought things in the next size above my usual pant size which was a 7. Mine also went into storage when I came home-I didn't want to see those things again.

  • What, you're supposed to stop?! Well, my daughter is 2 months and the jeans are the only pair that fit, but they've just got the little band that goes under the they're pulled halfway up my ribs, but still! Shirts I don't really wear because my old shirts fit.

  • Well I didn't loose the weight very fast, but I honestly was sick of those clothes. So I tried to ditch them asap.

  • I didn't buy a lot of maternity clothes because they never really fit right. I do however, still wear a fleece that is maternity, but it's so comfy I don't care! My son is almost 4, so I've been wearing it for a while now.

  • I wore the sweat pants for a few months, around the house, until I could comfortably fit back into my jeans. The shirts, jeans, all that went a few days after I got home from the hospital. I had very few maternity clothes and i was sick of them after 9 months.
