Are you a "one-size upper" or did you opt for the maternity clothes??

When I found out I was pregnant I thought I'd never set foot in a maternity store. But I was so wrong lol

  • I'm a tight-wad. I never bought maternity clothes. I stretched out my own clothes lol.

  • I wore low cut jeans under my belly and bought a hand full of tops that fit well, both maternity and non.

    I'm fortunate, I maintain a waistline when I am pregnant (I don't look pregnant from behind) and can wear normal jeans.

  • I had to wear maternity clothes, as I got SO big in the tummy with each pregnancy (I had Gestational diabetes), but I re-used them in subsequent pregnancies and bought a lot second hand. I tend to agree with minnesotanice, though, I didn't mind wearing maternity stuff and I was very proud of my lovely bulge!! :D

  • I wore maternity pants and loved them. As for shirts I mostly just bought shirts that had a bit of a flow to them.
