s/o winter jackets. I am determined to dress better this time

I didn't know what the heck I was doing last pregnancy and bought maternity clothes a couple of sizes up.  I thought I'd want really loose clothes.  Instead a looked like a real fool.  This time I want to get a bunch of short dresses/tunics that I can wear pp to wear with leggings and tights this winter. Along with jeans and some tees and sweaters, I think that'll do it for me.

Have any of you been obsessively looking at maternity clothes?

  • Yes, that's me. I have a secret board on Pinterest that is all maternity clothes. I want to look cuter.

  • I'm starting to look, but I'm at least going to wait until I actually need it in a couple months to buy anything.  Who knows what size I'll be, what the temps will be, and what the style options will be then.

  • I've been looking at maternity style for months and trying to figure out how to maximize my wardrobe that I already have. I would like to only have to buy some pants and leggings and just use the shirts and dressed that I already own. Im a big fan of belted cardigans so any time I find one I like I buy it in every color!

  • I'm was planning to shop a little this weekend. Last time I didn't start wearing maternity clothes until April, so all of my maternity clothes are short sleeved, light dresses, etc. I have a feeling I will be needing clothes sooner this time around and more substantial than last time.
  • I'm glad this was posted! This is my first pregnancy and I'm clueless about maternity sizes. Do you get the same size you wear now in the maternity section?

  • Most of my maternity stuff is for fall/winter since DD was due in January, but I have a few summer things from when I was first starting to show.  This time I'll need more warm weather things though.  I always bought my regular size, just in maternity.  It worked until 36 weeks when I had DD.  Some pants probably would have gotten too small at the end if I made it that far and DD didn't have IUGR.

    Yup, buy your pre-preg size. So if you usually wear a 6 pants, get size 6 maternity pants.

    I like the idea of long shirts with leggings. Much more comfy than jeans. I haven't though much about what I'm going to wear. I have been thinking about what lo will wear. My son is a winter baby, so a summer baby will be a lot different. I keep wondering how I'm going to swaddle a baby in the heat of summer. Here in WA, most houses do not have ac.
    Ditto on everything.  DS is a winter baby.  I live in Oregon and do not have A/C.  Blah!

    I guess keep 'em nearly naked, and swaddle with a light, breathable linen wrap? For summer baby wearing, I like a gauzy cotton wrap. Maybe you could purchase something similar (or get the fabric and make your own) for swaddling?
  • I'm always looking on Pinterest. I totally have the secret board also! Trying not to be a frump this time and keep some style.

  • I bought some tops from Old Navy online. They were running a sale so I don't even feel bad about it. Luckily I have summer maternity clothes too so I'm not tempted to buy a whole bunch more. I promised DH I wouldn't buy anything else.

  • I loved maternity dresses. And I splurged on a pair of designer maternity jeans when I was pregnant with my son that I can't wait to wear again! :) I want Kate Middleton's pregnancy style, but unfortunately I don't have a royal budget. :)
