I am super excited! It's only taken me six babies to figure out how to dress myself when I'm bulging at the seams.
Actually I haven't figured it out, but have been finding some things that work for me.
First of all, I am a jeans an T-shirt kind of gal. They are basic pieces that are comfortable and affordable and don't need special laundering or ironing. (Is that considered prudent or lazy?)
I discovered that one can often find better options when NOT looking in the maternity section!
For instance... I was at Target the other day and was thrilled to find a handful of colored T-shirts in the women's section that were very long (Specifically the Mossimo brand). Granted that's the style now, but I want to stock up because those long T-shirts look and feel much nicer to me than the tents in the maternity section!
Not only that, but I can wear them going UP in size and coming back DOWN after the baby is born.
I also found a pair of pants I love at TJ Maxx and want you pregnant gals (who wear pants) to take a look at this site where I found them in another color, because they are not maternity pants either, but are very comfortable and that Bella Band I bought makes up for the low ride. (By the way, that low riding elastic is what makes these work for a growing belly.)
So if you are in need of shirts that cover the belly, Target is the place today - AND at the tune of six to eight dollars a pop. I wore one today, with a long tank top for an under layer (also extra long and found at Target) and love love loved it!
I'm so happy:-)
