Its hard finding any fashionable maternity clothes! Just because im pregnant than means I have to dress like crap?

So ive looked EVERYWHERE online for maternity clothes.  The best I found for a good price (for a single mom like myself) was Old Navy, Target, and the dare i say...Goodwills and Salvation Armys.  Seriously? Thats our options? If anyone else knows of some great INEXPENSIVE maternity stores please share your knowledge!  Also i want to give a semi-rant for some of the maternity stores i saw online ran by "mothers"...maybe you shouldnt have such high prices in this economy let alone if youre a mother.  That sends the wrong message like...you dont give a crap that single moms or most moms cant afford much money on their own personal clothing because they put it towards baby.  Help another mom out!

Try craigslist or ebay. (Although I hate ebay) ppl wear maternity clothes so short, its still in good condition n they sell it.

I never rly wore maternity clothes, I just wore leggings and loose tops. Leggings are in style now, you could wear that w a long loose fitting sweater and boots. bam!

Actually go TO the store, I see the maternity clothes in Target all the time, and while the selection isnt huge, I always think it's cute. Also Burlington Coat Factory has low priced maternity-- if you have those. And I saw some on JCPenney's site recently.

 Forever 21 just put in a maternity department, if that's what you like. 

Personally, I never wore maternity clothes because they were just too expensive.  I bought 5 long dresses and wore those as maternity clothes instead.  It's not fashionable, but I couldn't afford anything better.

I had the same problem while I was preg...I ended up jus wearing my regular jeans w a belly band over the button, and bought normals tshirts that were maybe a size bigger and long.  I didn't get a chance to actually buy from this website, but I like kekesfashion.com (or kikisfashions) bc the clothes are cute and pretty inexpensive.  I also thought Gap and Old Navy were pretty good choices.

Never wore maternity clothes. Just wore a size or two bigger than my normal size.
