Why not get them and use them for the next pregnancy, too? That would validate spending that much if you will be wearing them more than just these next 3 months, right? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Check ebay for them!  No reason to subject yourself to frump just because you’ve got a baby on board.  You might be able to find the same or a really similar pair for like, next to nothing.  I do almost all my shopping on ebay.  And any chance you’ll be pregnant again within the next five years or so?  

There are currently 82 Seven for all Mankind maternity pants listings on ebay! Check it out. http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?_nkw=seven+for+all+mankind+maternity&_sacat=0&_odkw=seven+for+all+mankind&_osacat=0&_trksid=p3286.c0.m270.l1313

I would use Ebay. Either buy them on ebay if you don’t mind gently used clothes or buy them in the store and sell on Ebay when you are done to recoup some of the costs. You have to be careful of knock-offs but there are plenty of tutorials on how to spot them.

 

edit: VeganGlam and I had the same idea ๐Ÿ˜‰

I just started my maternity jean search, and it is not pretty.  Why must they look so frumpy and be so expensive??  I’ve been using the bella band, but I’m reaching the point where maternity pants would be more comfortable.

I don’t think I’ve ever spent $185 on any outfit, much less a single piece of clothing! But I do feel your pain on the cost of maternity clothes that you can only wear for a few months. I’ve definitely been using ebay and a second hand maternity/baby store in my town to get some great maternity clothes for a fraction of the price. Feeling like I am looking good really makes a difference in my mood day to day.

I think you should get them. If you wear them everyday (which you might!) for the next 90 days, you’d have paid $2 per wear for them. I think it’s totally worth it. Plus you might want to wear them after the birth, since nobody pops back to normal instantly….and you could wear them for future pregnancies or sell them on ebay afterwards. ๐Ÿ™‚

In the 3 boxes of maternity clothes that I got from friends there was a pair of these.  I wore them every single time that I didn’t have to dress for work.  They were that awesome.  I wore the crap out of them.  I asked my friend why in the world she spent so much on maternity jeans and she said that she found them for $30 at a maternity consignment store!

They are teh awesome, so if you can’t find them gently used or on ebay consider forking over the cash.  I think they were the only thing that made me feel like I looked good during pregnancy!

You’ll also be wearing them possibly for a couple months after you have your baby ๐Ÿ™‚

@flamingred: You know what you should do?  You can bookmark a search and have them send you a daily digest via email.  Just type in the brand and select your size and any other details you want to limit it to, then check “save this search” to the right of the search bar and when it takes you to the new page, have them send you the digest.  It’ll just take a few seconds for you to look over it every day, and you may come across a deal!  You might also want to consider a few other premium denim brands.  Have you ever worn or tried on any others? I’ve never been pregnant, but I would tend to agree with Mrs. DG that having a good pair of jeans, or pants, or some other versatile clothing item, could make a HUGE difference in how you feel about the way you look each day.  I’m a huge fan of cost per wear calculations.  Consider how much wear you’d get out of them, and how good you’ll feel in them.  For most people, jeans are the sort of thing that have a ridiculously low cost per wear amount, just because they’re so durable and can be worn in so many circumstances!

I honestly have come across pretty much everything I ever wanted on ebay.  I know that sounds ridiculous, but it’s true.  I just bought a perfect, new $1000 gown for my e-pics for $100, for example.  I wouldn’t give up on it!  The digest is such a useful idea.

I bought the Paige Denim maternity jeans (similar price tag) and wear them practically every day.  Granted, I’ve been wearing mine with the bella band until recently so I could wear them a lot longer and I know I’ll wear them as I try to get back to pre-pregnancy shape too so I justified the price tag to myself.  Good luck finding yours on sale.  At least it is holiday season and sometimes it is easier to find sales and coupons.

Do you have any baby/maternity consignment stores? That might be a good place to find something like that locally.

I’m planning on spending not a lot on actual maternity wear. If it’s hideous it’ll keep me motivated to not stay in it for long after the baby.
