I've been very hesitant to buy maternity clothes throughout my pregnancy. They are EXPENSIVE, and kinda frumpy and unstylish for the most part. We're on a tight budget, and I hate the thought of buying things I can only wear for a few months.
So I went on Craigslist and bought a huge grab bag filled with gently used maternity clothes for 20.00. The lady I purchased them from happened to have the exact same body type as me (5'3", slightly pear shaped). That trash bag of clothes had all the pants I could ever need, including jeans, cargos, capris, and black work pants. Basically, I paid less than 1.00 for each item in that bag. They call me the Craigslist queen!
Among the few non-Craigslist items I've purchased so far are these soft, slouchy t-shirts from zara. They are flattering and fit nicely over my 8 month belly, have quirky images of animals on them, and are bedazzled with sequins and embroidery. They're less than 26 bucks a pop. Best of all, I can definitely wear them after Siena is born!
