    @SKZW omg yes! I mean the flowers totally makes the outfit complete right?!  (Total sarcasm)

  • Well, all the dresses came in and...they sucked. The blue baby shower dress was darker in person and the fit was off. The Black floral baby shower dress, they sent the wrong one and what they sent made me look like a while.
    The Maternity photo dress...too short!!! I really want/ need it to pool on the ground a little bit and it was more like ankle length on my 5'7" self.

    I have 1 week and I'm now feeling overwhelmed and frustrated. @SWE2 : Where's that maternity photo dress from?!

  • @nda_roxybabe have you looked on etsy? they have a lot of those maternity photo dress styles

    although you would probably have to pay for rush shipping

  • @lrwardrop I need to look again. I am steering away from any open front ones and that seems to make it trickier.

  • I am going to sneak this in here since it is kind of related...

    Does anyone have experience with belly binders post partum? I don't think they will actually magically permanently change my body but with ever increasing odds of another c section it sounds like it may help a lot from a support and comfort standpoint. Also even at a large 27 weeks my belly still hasn't filled out all the saggy baby belly skin from last time and I think hiding that deflated balloon for a bit would be good for me mentally.

    (FTMs heads up: port partum abdomens can be mortifying for weeks if not months, its OK.)

    @nda_roxybabe So sorry your dresses didn't work out! I ordered it off Etsy. It's a store called SewTrendy. They take awhile to make. Might be able to find one on their website ready to ship. I also didn't want a slit in the front.  Good luck!

  • @nda_roxybabe you could check the local mom group and do an ISO? Might be worth a shot

  • Is it bad that the first thought that crossed my mind upon seeing that picture was not how impractical that dress ("dress"?) is but how cellulite-free her legs are?

    That was the "yellow" mom's dress in my rainbow baby shoot.  It must be popular in maternity shoots.  We have a very casual dress code at work and I just don't think I could make it work.  :P

  • Any suggestions for a short-sleeved, loose fitting, nursing t-shirt? I'm looking for something comfy to wear around the house to replace the typical unisex t-shirts I normally wear. Something that's not low-cut.
  • I unearthed a pair of linen capris from my first pregnancy that sit under your bump, and they were SO COMFORTABLE when I tried them on. I am OVER the full pouch - as it no longer can contain my entire bump. These are the only pants I have found with a similar waistband, but I'm not terribly interested in dropping $75. for 2 months of wear. Has anyone seen anything similar? Or know of any buzzwords to search (I've tried 'under belly' 'jogger' 'elastic waist' <-- that one gets you EVERY pair of maternity pants!)

  • @emilyalso I'm not sure if this is exactly what you're looking for, but I did see these linen pants at Kohl's the other week and actually ended up buying a pair as "comfy" pants for post-baby. They're juniors, so they run pretty small. I ended up buying a pair that was a little snug on me now, but should be perfect for later.

    @emilyalso, try searching for demi panel.  The gap has several options.

    edit to say, The Gap also had an inset panel that you may like.

  • I ordered maternity/nursing bras last night from Amazon and they should get here Sunday! So excited! I hope they work! They are basically the IloveSia ones that were mentioned before, but not from that seller. They look identical so I'm hoping they fit the same! Had basically they same amount of reviews and the same number of stars, so fingers crossed! 

    Looks so peaceful and like a beautiful place to take a walk...

  • Had anyone tried something like these tanks before? I haven't found any nursing tops that I like and thought these would be great to wear under my existing clothes.

  • @CherryBananas I just used regular camis under my clothes. They slid down just fine.  I usually buy a bunch of the super cheap ones at Love Culture or those type of stores.

  • @NotAPlaya-JustCrushAlot I keep seeing you guys mention the target tanks but I'm in Canada so a lot of these places I don't have access to. I've been playing around with my existing wardrobe to see if I have something that might work. I live in tanks and maxi skirts in the summer but my favourite tanks from H&M (the really long ones) they don't carry here any more :disappointed:

  • @CherryBananas I've heard really good thing about Undercover Mamas tanks! They are essentially tanks that clip onto your nursing bra. I know they sell them on Amazon too.

  • @babymc517 my friend and o were debating between that brand (it's got to be the same) and the ones we got; ilovesia. I love my ilovesia but I know I'll need more once baby arrives. Please update if you like that brand!

    @sarah0985 well its half way through the day and it feels pretty good! I feel supported and nothing is digging into me! I went with the XL and still had to use the extender, but only for like one more hook over I think. I'm a pretty full 36/38 DD pre-pregnancy and just seem to be fuller. I'm wondering how much bigger I will get, but I think the bra will hold up! At least I'm hoping it will...I'll try to remember to update again later after a full day of wear! :) 

    ETA: @sarah0985 still good after a full day! Better than any other bra I've tried on so far!
