When you have a baby your body shape changes dramatically – and the simple solution is not just purchasing a pair of pants a size or two bigger. Yet, it appears that the maternity wear options are few and far between for mothers-to-be these days.
Oh and if you want to purchase maternity wear, you’ll need to purchase it online.
Sorry – what was that, you have trouble purchasing clothes online when you are not pregnant, let alone when your body is changing … WEEKLY… How do you come to terms with purchasing clothes online when your baby bump and boobs are something that you’ve never had to deal with before?
People put out these posts, letting us mothers-to-be know what maternity staples we need… however they too are all online!
I just want to walk into a shop a try something on.
I’ve ordered pieces online from various shops and they are less then favourable in the fit department. Dresses that S-T-R-E-T-C-H across an expending bust so that all bras are visible, tops that don’t allow for an ample breast size, and pants that are just way too long. Pieces that, given the opportunity to try them on, would NEVER have been purchased!
Oh they have a returns policy, but the fact of the matter is that when you are running around after a 14 month old and are over half way through your pregnancy with your second, you forget things like this and are more focused on; cleaning clothes, picking up toys and getting dinner on the table for your husband.
I know that people don’t want to purchase too much for the 9 months that they are pregnant. Hey – I didn’t actually wear maternity wear until after 20 weeks pregnant with both of my pregnancies. But I would like to be able to invest in a few key pieces that I was able to try on in a store.
I’ve been pregnant more than once and I plan on being pregnant again.
I want to have a pair of comfortable maternity jeans that I can pull on and feel good about myself in. Thanks to MamaStylista, I found said pair the other day in JustJeans – an actual retail store where I could go in and try these jeans on!
I want to have some maternity basics that fit my expanding bust (10F up to 10GG when full of milk), and I was so thankful when I found that Sussans has begun a maternity staples range. But not only that, they had an array of pieces from their normal range that could be mixed and matched with their maternity pieces for longevity in your purchases.
Who would have thought that a pregnant woman would need a coat that actually did up during winter in Canberra? Thanks Sussans for your practical solution with a great coat that I am now in love with!
This is not a sponsored post for maternity wear, just a question to the blogger universe as to why retailers hate on maternity wear?
