Where to shop on a budget.. when you’re expecting!

Pregnancy..  It’s supposed to be magical time of your life, when you have the privilege of carrying a child.  While how a woman actually feels varies; some women claim that they feel sexier while others feel lousy being dogged down by morning sickness.

However, regardless of how we feel pregnant, we still want to look good.  And that perhaps is one of the biggest fashion challenges: where can you buy maternity clothes & be well dressed?  And do it on a budget?  You’ve come to the right place!

This trendy fast fashion store has widened the spectrum of the clothes they offer: they originally started selling juniors, but now they sell missy, plus, mens, girls, & now maternity as well!  Pls note that they don’t have a wide selection of maternal wear, but it is trendy & budget friendly, & I think worth looking at.




They have started to offer a lot for maternal wear!  They have tops, bottoms, jeans, dresses, & more!

This British fave has maternity clothes?  You’d be surprised!  They offer not only everyday clothes, but also intimates, bathing suits, pjs, & more!


When should I shop for maternity clothes? 

This depends entirely on the woman, for there is no exact math for when you should buy them.  (i.e. 5 months)  Get them when you start showing, or simply when your pre-pregnancy clothes don’t feel comfortable.

No no: Don’t buy them far in advance.  You have no idea what size you’re exactly going to be, & it’s best to buy as you’re growing.


You don’t want to spend a lot of money on maternity clothes, for they are clothes that you wear during this period of time, & then never again.  (Unless you save them for a future pregnancy)  Now you know where to go without spending a lot, but yet still look good!
