Maternity clothes are so much cuter now than they were back in the days my mother had to wear them. They used to be tent shaped and make pregnant women look like whales. Now they're are lots of styles to choose from.
My problem is similar to that of many pregnant women I assume, I'm not sure how to dress my new growing body. I learned something that never would've occured to me on my own that the more fitted tops are actually more slimming than the flowy ones you'd wear to camoflage your bump. I don't really care for the huggy tops, I have a couple of them, but I don't particularly like drawing more attention to my belly.
I did have some luck finding 2 pairs of maternity jeans with the secret belly which I really like. The maternity band comes up really high and thin so they don't show even in the more fitted tops. I had a lot of people tell me that the full belly pants are very itchy, but I haven't found that to be an issue.
I don't want to spend boatloads of money on maternity clothes so I've been keeping my eye on 2nd hand stores and consignment shops and sales at stores. Right now I have to do laundry often, but I'm getting by. I'm sure you'll see me wearing the same outfits over and over again which is not my style.
