by vintagelover229 » Apr 26, 2012 I didn't check to see if there was another thread about maternity clothing but I figured I start a thread about it either way. I'm finding maternity clothing shopping to be difficult. In the clothes defense-I haven't gone to any stores to try anything on yet (I'm only 4 months so far but I know I'll be needing it soon) but I have shopped around online and boy oh boy that stuff isn't cheap at all. I am going to borrow some clothing from friends but I can only get so much since they were pregnant during the winter and not during the summer/fall. We are also going on our honeymoon which will require active wear clothing and it's very very very expensive. I'll also need larger sports bras (I wanted to buy nursing sports bras but I was told to hold off on that until closer to my due date since your breasts can still get a lot larger and you don't want to end up buying the wrong size). I do know that old navy carries maternity clothing for a reasonable price but we don't have one near us. Any active wear will probably have to be shipped which can make it difficult to figure out sizing. I was fairly small prior to getting pregnant but I have no clue what size I will be during our trip-but I can't afford to just wait and then go to the mall and buy everything I need since we need to watch the spending due to the trip/house and the baby. So-how to you determine what sizing you will need for maternity clothing? Is there any good sites that sell maternity clothing in lots? I've checked ebay and they have some-but it's pretty hard because of the sizing. I can't afford to spend a ton of money on brand new clothing-but anything gently used is fine in my book. I love 2nd hand shops but the one trip I made to one searching for maternity clothing I drew 2 conclusions. 1) You're not getting that bit of a price break (at least not at the one I went to) and 2) The stuff from the 80's is terrible. I mean just terrible. I guess I should thank hollywood for at least doing one thing-making being pregnant trendy so we have some decent clothing to choose from. So ladies-where do you shop for your clothes? How did you figure out sizing? How many pieces can I really get away with having? A few pairs of shorts/pants/tops? I don't need professional clothing since I am not working (but I know many women do so feel free to post those suggestions for those who need them) but I will need comfortable traveling clothing that is easy to dress up if I need to while on our trip. Thanks so much!
