My Top 4 Maternity Buys – By Georgina

January 26th, 2010 No Comments

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.

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.
