Motherhood/Destination Maternity/A Pea in the Pod.  Old Navy. Asos.  Target.  And friend’s closets.

I’ve gotten most of my work clothes at Pea in the Pod (pricy, but it’s hard to find professional clothes, and I needed suit jackets and skirts/pants) and most of my casual stuff from Gap Maternity.  Gap always has stuff on sale, plus an additional 25-30% off every week or so.

Motherhood Maternity for their jeans, the fit is great. Old Navy clearance rack for tops, etc. Gap clearance rack also. Bought a shirt on ASOS that I like a lot, and I’m eyeing more stuff. Its so tempting, specially because I have to get dressed every day for work. And now that the holidays are near even more so tempting. But I try to make sure everything I buy is on clearance/sale to I dont spend so much money.

@loveknows:  How is the sizing for ASOS?  I just looked at their website and it looks like UK/European sizing.  Like in the US I wear a 2/4, but my measurements look closer to the 6 on their site.  They have a measurement chart for the maternity clothes, but I don’t usually do so well just going by those.  I see that you are from the Caribbean- is the sizing there more like the US or UK?

I got a pair of jeans from Destination Maternity (Motherhood brand I believe) and a few maternity shirts from Old Navy. I pretty much live in jeans and tshirts, even for my desk job. I’ve just been buying my normal Target tshirts in a size up and wearing them.

The one time I had to dress up I managed to squeeze into my pre-pregnancy suit pants, plus a lot of my dress shirts still fit. Hoping I don’t have to do that again, as I’m not sure I could!

I’ve been living in stuff from Motherhood Maternity.  I’ve come to find that the quality isn’t always the best, but I’m petite so it’s hard for me to find things at other places that aren’t SUPER long since maternity stuff is long anyway.  Motherhood sells petite pants so they have been my saving grace.  I also got a few pieces from Gap but I’m too cheap for them most of the time!

Mostly Motherhood Maternity and Gap Maternity (love their maternity jeans…especially because I’m 5’10” and they come in tall length). I also have a couple basics (leggings, a cardiga, denim pencil skirt) from Old Navy Maternity. I’ve also been wearing a lot of non-maternity clothes – mostly dresses and tunics – that are cut in a way that works on a pregnant body (I’m nearly 24 weeks).

I only have 4 motherhood maternity things (1 was thrifted). The rest is all Old Navy. And when possible I’m just buying non maternity in a larger size. I can’t justify the pricing on some clothes. I get alot more at old navy for the price. And their clothes fit me. 🙂

While prego I bought tons of clothes from Old Navy. Now I see cute stuff at target all the time. They seem to have more on-trend stuff and nicer dresses.

Anne Taylor Loft has awesome sales usually 40-50% off (if you are signed up for their e-mails), and they have a maternity section. In fact – today they are 40% on their website if you use the code “color”.   

I have a pair of maternity skinnies on the way and can update you when I receive them..  Those would be my first purchase though.

Motherhood, Kohl’s and Target. I did get a coat and some workout pants from old Navy. I few things from friends but most had summer babies and I’m having a winter baby so the stuff wasn’t much help.
