Shopping For Maternity Style: What To Buy?

I am of course talking about myself here. And clothes. How un-selfish of me, I know. Truth of the sartorial matter is I’ve tip toed around my maternity style for 6 months, debating weather or not I should invest in some maternity clothes, or given that I’m still sort of the same size’ish… I can trick my way for the next 4 months or so with leggings, and loose tops slash dresses, all in bigger sizes. But then I figured why not enjoy this and with it, enjoy the clothes, you know.

Like,  I adore jeans but I can’t wear them anymore… so why the hell should I not buy a maternity style jeans pair right?!

I confess that so far I’ve only bought a few clothes – non-maternity – so just in bigger size because 1) I didn’t really need to resort to maternity style yet, and 2) I haven’t found anything maternity style that I truly loved. Having said that as a pregnant woman fashion wise I live in stretchy dresses of all sorts, shirt dresses, leggings, sporty attire, long sweaters… And so on. I did buy a pair of pants in checks that have an elastic waistband. We’ll see how I style those.

Shopping for maternity style does make me wanna have jeans though. The rest… I’ll see on the way.

Maternity style: what to buy?

I think it really depends on the season, cause if it’s summer you just wear maxi dresses and you’re done! But in winter you need to stay warm and comfortable.

  • bras
  • sports bras
  • bigger size/maternity leggings
  • came tops
  • long-sleeve dresses
  • sweater dresses
  • a pair of maternity jeans
  • a pretty skirt
  • a dressy dress
  • button-downs
  • oversized sweaters
  • fitted tops
  • cardigans

    Girl, you will not come around buying at least one pair of maternity pants (whatever style or fabric). I did hover around buying those when i had my first baby, too. But, then, the timing of my first pregnancy was better – when my belly was getting too big spring / summer came around, so i was lucky with sticking to dresses. This time is different and seems you’ll have about the same due date with me (my girl is due on 12.04.), so we’re in the same boat. I bought maternity dress pants at H&M at a sale (also since i’m still working in the office) and, trust me, i would do the same again. The comfort you buy – for yourself *and* your baby – is so worth the money! If you feel comfortable in jeans – go get a pair maternity-style. And from the practical point of view: it’s still quite cold till the due date and surviving only on dresses and big sweaters – you’ll get bored at least. In worst case you catch a cold and – being pregnant and all – you can’t take any medicine, mind my words… Maybe a bit more of advice: buy maternity cloths that you really like *and* that you can wear after pregnancy, too. That is possible, yes (unless your size changes dramatically).
    Take care and all the best!

      Actually you’re right, i never said i wouldn’t buy more clothes for maternity just that i didn’t need to yet. i love clothes so I’m sure i’ll be shopping hard once my bump gets bigger if i have to. For now the only thing i’m actually missing is jeans which i’m out to get these days. most of my dresses, tops, sweaters, button-downs they all fit me, so it’s just the bottoms i need to adjust. Managed so far with leggings of all sorts, boyfriend jeans, long sweaters dresses, et all. Thanks for your input and advice, truly appreciate it. take care and lots of love to you and your baby. xxx PS yes i can’t wait for spring. (due date 13.05) #soexcited
