Maternity Clothes

I need advice on where to buy maternity clothes.   A lot of stores seem to have stopped carrying them.  Where do you all buy yours and if you don't buy maternity clothes, what do you wear?

I went to motherhood maternity for my clothing.  I still wear many of the shirts 7 yrs later LOL.  I gave away the pants however to someone else who was pregnant at the time.

Many people do no wear them but decide instead to wear elastic exercise pants and shorts and baby doll style shirts that are great for after the baby is born as well :) 


Garage sales, resale shops, good will, old navy online has a better selection, or motherhood maternity :) 


Remember you will only wear them for about three months per child... ;)

 I came accross this when I started looking for maternity clothes earlier this year.

Old Navy is the best that I have found. The only problem is that you have to buy online. They don't carry it in stores.

Motherhood is good, but expensive.

 Really, 3 months? I've been in maternity clothes since Dec, and I'm due in a couple weeks. And no, I have not gained a ton of weight, just 12lbs.

3 months? I started wearing pants around 15 weeks. Other clothes by 4 1/2 months. 20 years ago tight clothes were tacky and not in style like they are now.

Yoga pants
Flared tops until you get a belly then any longer cute shirts will do
Cotton shorts
Summer flowy dresses

I wore my bottoms after the babies, while I was getting my figure back. They wear like the dickens, too. Great quality.

Target has maternity clothes.

Personally, I bought as little actual maternity clothes as possible. I did buy one pair of nice black work pants from motherhood maternity, but other than that, i just bought clothes with a generous cut in bigger sizes. I wore jeans under my belly, so i never bought actual maternity jeans. i wore a lot of stretchy tank tops and cardigans, bc tanks are cheap, and cardigans i could buy in my normal size (or a little bigger) and i can still wear after the fact.

 im surprised you even need maternity clothes if you only gained 12 lbs. why not just buy normal clothes a size up?
