In general, most women do not feel their most flattering during pregnancy. Although, there is always that one jolly, annoying pregnant woman. You know the one, she’s loves everything that has anything to do with being pregnant. But again, most women feel less attractive as the pregnancy progresses, and their abdomens expand. What could make it worse? How about this; the absolute most horrid maternity fashions a human being has ever laid eyes on. From huge plaid bows, to bellowing skirts with no waist. Who could forget the farmers trouser, made for the size of an elephant. If only I could work the fields during my pregnancy, then it may seem appropriate. Has the world of fashion gone mad? How did pregnant women’s fashion slip through the cracks? Well, I will tell you how to find inexpensive, fashionable, comfortable maternity clothing. It is out there, you just need to know where to look.
What is it that women are looking for? Easy, flexible, and breathable material. Brand names such as gap and Old Navy. Style is of the utmost importance, since we would like to improve our self image right now. Then there’s the price, as little cost as possible, since you are saving for the baby right now. Is this possible? Yes it is.
The answer is consignment shops and thrift stores. Not just any thrift store. You must find one located in a wealthy area. Basically, it works like this. wealthy women buy very expensive and stylish maternity clothes. Then they have their babies. Then they donate the amazing maternity clothes to the local thrift store. Then you can buy them, and enjoy a pregnancy full of style.
Same goes with the consignment shops. Choose one in a wealthy area, to ensure the clothes are stylish, brand name, and expensive when newly bought. The great thing about this is that once you’ve located a great shop, and established a relationship with the owner, she will notify you when something of your taste arrives in the store.
You do not have to look frumpy, silly, or ridiculous just because you are pregnant. Follow these tips and you can be as styling as your non-pregnant friends.
