Maternity clothing

What is everyone wearing? I'm having such a hard time finding shorts I like. I like Bermuda shorts because I can't stand the way my legs look right now. I can't seem to find any with a beige fully belly. I feel like with the dark full panel can be seen through all my tops. I'm at a loss. What is everyone wearing for comfort but not something that it looks like you have been lounging around all day? Where is your go to place to shop for maternity clothing?

  • Old Navy is my go-to. They're inexpensive, but still look nice. These have basically been my pregnancy uniform for the last few weeks:

    I have the capris w/ the dark panel as well, and as long as you put a tank top under your shirt, or the shirt's a little thicker or darker colored, you can't see it.

  • I really like H & M maternity cause its inexpensive and looks like normal clothes. You don't have to sacrifice style for comfort. And like Jill said Old Navy is great too 
  • Lots and lots of maxi dresses with cute sandals.

    I do own a few maternity bermuda shorts though.

  • I found some shorts I want from motherhood but haven't gotten in there to buy them. They have Bermuda shorts to. I believe I saw some at old navy to. Targets are just way to expensive to me. Until I can get some shorts I have some gouchos I got from old navy that work great.

  • I have a few pairs from Motherhood Maternity with the beige colored belly. They are comfy! Dresses are great too, very comfy.

    I like Target, Old Navy, and Burlington. I have ordered a few shirts from shadeclothing.com, although they are made rather thin and I have to wear a tank under.

  • I just bought a pair of maternity capris at Ross, they were 13.99. I have also bought 3 maxi dresses from there and the most expensive one was 15.99.

  • motherhood is the only place I've bought the beige full panel on shorts/capris. I have some liz lange target mat shorts that I love, they make two lengths for 24.99 - I tried on ON, but wasn't impressed, and they were 30-something in the store. ON's actually having a sale now on bermuda-length I believe with a full beige panel though.

  • I'm in comfy tops and tanks with the elastic sides, my belly band, and I'm still in my pre pg jeans and shorts.

    Other than that, maxi dresses! Oh so comfy, and I have some long AND short ones.

    Then flip flops. I haven't worn "real" shoes (aside to work) in about 3 months.

  • I have beige paneled shorts from ON. Pretty comfy. Other than that I'm wearing kahki pants with bright tanks or maxi dresses. And flip flops. I don't fit into Any shoes anymore!

    This is me too, but I never wore shorts nonpg either. I am petite but with an ample booty, so even bermudas look vulgar on me.

  • I've been so blessed to have great friends loan me lots of maternity wear!

    I have a pair of shorts from Gap someone loaned me that are perfect, not quite Bermuda, but longer than normal shorts! Love them!

  • I'm living in skirts and 2 pairs of jean capris and Jessica Simpson shirts, all from motherhood. The skirts are casual enough to wear on the weekend or to work with a dressier shirt. Shoes are all sandals at this point, nothing with straps.
    I did spend quite a bit on clothing but I also plan to have another baby so I figured I would use the same wardrobe next time around. Unless its in the dead of winter then Im screwed! Lol

  • Kohl's had a pair of full panel beige Bermuda shorts. They were really comfortable but I was only able to buy one pair of shorts that day so I went when a different pair. I may go back and get them at some point during this pregnancy.

  • I've bought a few longer skirts that have an elastic waist. I'm wearing them with simple tank tops. I've been wearing maxi dresses with cardigans to work.

  • I'm mostly doing dresses and flowy skirts at this point, but I have always had good luck with both Old Navy and Target for maternity clothes. If you are ok with shopping online, ASOS.com and Zulilly usually have some good options.

  • I rotate about 45 pairs of pants and 5 tops for work. Outside of work, it's a dress!

  • Sick of spending $ on clothes I can't wear after another 3 mos. (until the next LO), I discovered that Old Navy Foldover jersey skirts and jersey "tamis" (tank/cami) make the perfect summer uniform. Also, crocs flip flops FTW.
    Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars.

  • I spent the most money on my work wardrobe, as I have to adhere to a dress code, so no lounge wear for me. Aside from that, I have a couple of pairs of shorts from Motherhood Maternity and a few capris from JCPenney, as well. I do wear dresses or skirts quite a bit, though. They are just easier.

     This exactly! I got a pair of tan bermuda shorts and a pair of black capris for work there.  $13.99 each

  • Thanks everyone for the responses. I'm going to have to check out ON. There aren't too many stores around me that have maternity so it looks like i'll have to do some online shopping, which I hate!
