Honestly I speny about $75 when I first needed maternity clothes and went to a 2nd hand store. I bought several pairs of pants, about 5 tops, and 2 pairs of jeans. Most of the clothes I bought were a size or two up from what i wear now and were flowy. Pants I bought stretchy ones like leggings .

I’ve had great luck at Gap Maternity – the clearance section has been cheap, cheap, cheap!! ๐Ÿ™‚ I work in a professional office setting (no jeans for me) and I’m working with two dresses, three pairs of dress pants, two skirts and about a dozen tops, a few cardigans.

The best thing about Gap is that you can purchase clearance and if you see the Take An Additional 40% Sale Items sale happen less than a week after you purchased, they’ll do an adjustment on the receipt so you get credited the difference. Over a week ago I bought a dress for my shower that was marked down to $29.99, I saw a few days later (thanks to my Banana Republic Card emails) that Gap Sale items were Take Addt’l 25% off, so I went back with my card and they adjusted it. I got my dress for $12.73 (it was marked down AGAIN to $16.97). Quite proud of that one. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I so wish we had Old Navy and Gap OR a maternity consignment shop where I live… grrrr.

I did get some pants at Kohls that I like BUT that’s really only b/c I had some kohls cash and $ left on a gift card so I got them for 25…. by the time I got them I really didn’t have a choice so what can ya do. lol

@rachiecakes: Cute dress!!! I have 2 Gap stores close to where I live and I’ve never seen maternity clothing there. None of the Old Navy stores here seem to carry the maternity clothes either. I will have to watch for the sale online!

@regberadaisy: using google for even the prominent places we have here isn’t very successful… sigh.. really I live in a pretty dated city. We have just a handful of consignment shops, ONE goodwill, and of course a Salvation army… all of which get pretty ratty things.. definitley not designer.. and the consignment shops are still REALLY pricey. It’s poo! lol

I was thinking about ebay though…. idk we’ll see what all I end up needing. =)

I bought most of my maternity clothes on clearance at Motherhood Maternity.  I spent about $150 total for enough clothes to last me the whole pregnancy. 

Also, if you have any friends/family members that were recently pregnant, you might ask if they would lend you their clothes.  A friend gave me all of her maternity clothes after we had our babies (she’s not planning on having any more), and I lent them to one of my friends who just had her baby in July.  I recently got all the clothes back, and plan on passing them on to the next pregnant lady I know.

Do you have a plato’s closet near you? It’s like a stylish consignment shop. I don’t know if they have a maternity section, though.

Or what about Ross or Marshalls or TJ Max?

I had a post a while back saying that I found some cute maternity clothes on walmart.com.  I would not usually buy clothes from Walmart but I figured heck- it’s only for a few months and the prices are great.  They all look just like they did online.  I’m also buying some this weekend from someone on craigslist!

I found clothes on Kijiji… For 120$ I got over 10 pairs of pants and jeans, 3 skirts, 1 dress, and countless tops and PJs. The girl also included a baby carrier in there and stuff for the baby.  The clothes are not all maternity; some are for breastfeeding, and pants are of varying sizes so I will have things to wear during the transition period (where I don’t need maternity but don’t fit in my regular clothes).

Some clothes are very nice, and some others not exactly my style, but I don’t want to spend tons of money on clothes that I won’t wear for long, so it was totally worth it.

JC Penney’s maternity section has been my best find so far during a back to school sale.  I got a couple of pairs of pants and a nice shirt. 

Usually I like Kohl’s, but their maternity section has been less than impressive to me.  I hate maternity clothes!

I haven’t bought much so far but I think the best deals seem to be at Gap & Old Navy. If you have one of the credit cards from them it really saves you a lot. I have a Banana card and I constantly get 30% or 40% off deals and if you get to be a Luxe member (spending $800 a year) you get 5% back in rewards plus free shipping no matter what you spend. I live in Chicago so I’ve been able to go to some of the other lower end stores that I normally shop at like H&M and Forever 21 but I haven’t really found their stuff that cheap.
