  • You might be able to get away with bigger normal t-shirts until 6 or 7 months. I know I did, but at about 7 months I needed maternity shirt for my big belly!

  • I started buying them when my clothes started feeling tight around the belly. also to avoid the peek a boo belly thing.

  • With my first child I was wearing my regular T-shirts until about seven months, then I had to switch to my husband's T-shirts. Which are bigger. With my second child I had to wear my husband's shirts from about 4-5 months, since I still had the weight from the first pregnancy. I would go ahead and start buying them and when you need them you'll have them.

  • I started wearing them around 20 wks (a few before that) but I really prefer having on looser clothing so that's just me... now that I'm 28 wks I don't really have any choice but to wear maternity unless I put on an XL and then it just looks silly because it fits my belly but is loose on top haha

  • usually aroudn your 6 or 7 month but make sure you dont wait until 7 months because after that it just grows and grows and grows and i mean it grows out of no where lol
