Many of my friends are now Mommies so I’m going to post more on Maternity-wear….or I will just link to Georgina, who is super stylish and practical.
In the following post, she offers you her favorite purchases thus far.
Take it away G.
I think it’s really hard to know what to splurge on and what not to splurge on when it comes to maternity clothes so I thought I would share some of my best buys with you.
1. Jules & Jim Prada Pants
I have been wearing these pants 2 – 3 times per week since I was 16 weeks pregnant and could no longer get into my pre-pregnancy work pants. They were the first maternity item I purchased and by far the best maternity item purchased. They used to be available for about $87 on Belly Dance Maternity but they don’t seem to have any at the moment. Check back because I’m sure they are just currently out of stock.
2. Ingrid & Isabel everyday cami
You may have heard of the Ingrid & Isabel Bella Band as being a must-buy. I bought one and hated it. I found I was forever adjusting it. What I found worked much better was the Ingrid & Isabel Everyday Cami. It fits comfortably throughout pregnancy – it just keeps on expanding with your belly. I also find that it is tight enough to work similarly to a belly band without having to constantly adjust it. I only bought one in white but if I had my time over I would buy two in every color. Instead I have been making do with some old pre-pregnancy Charlotte Russe camis. However I’m fighting a constant battle of pulling it down to cover the bump and pulling it up to cover the cleavage. Usually the bump wins and then I’m left red-faced when I realize the inappropriate amount of cleavage I’ve been walking around my office with. So…..do yourself a favor and get some of these Ingrid and Isabal camis instead.
3. Liz Lange for Target maternity T
I bought one in black and one in white and couldn’t be happier with them. They are great for layering, obviously. But the reason I really like them is that they are so soft and only $14.99. Check them out here.
4. Wrap dress
A pregnant woman’s best friend – the wrap dress. I have the one above from Isabella Oliver. I also have a wool one from Gap (they don’t have the winter version on their website anymore) and I’m still fitting into my pre-pregnancy Banana Republic wrap dress.
