  • i would rather go without shirts. usually i go to stores and get shirts 2 sizes to big. but with a growing belly i think the stretchable band in the pants are great

  • I would rather go without maternity pants. I hated all of the ones I bought and just wore my regular pants the whole time. My pants are always too big in the waist anyway, so they fit for a long time and then I just did the button/rubber band trick for the rest of the time.

  • The shirts. I can find normal bigger tops, but, I LOVED the banded pants. LOL

  • Without the tops, probably. They have so many empire waist/loose fitting tops nowadays, it's easy to avoid the maternity tops. But I LOVE maternity jeans! The minute I was getting uncomfortable in my regular jeans, I switched, heh..

  • I loved my maternity jeans and wore them for a while after delivery as well. There were non-maternity tops I could wear, especially with loose, flowing tops being the style a couple of years ago, but I could not have made it with regular jeans.

  • i like some maternity pants.. but i dont normally need them until the LAST month so last time i used them for like 3 weeks and then i couldnt wear them anymore.. so this time.. i just borrowed some reg pants from my cousin who is a little bigger than me and bought one pair that i could give away after.. i dont like tops period.. i feel massive huge in ALL shirts when preggo and maternity shirts dont help.. the only ones i like are the ones that have the line under the boobs and let bottom flows.. so it doesnt make me look AS big.
