MATERNITY WEAR CHEAT SHEET

Monday, November 6, 2017

I have sent this email to numerous people with all my maternity wear brands and places to go, so I figured I would share it with you. Not because I was the cutest dressed pregnant woman, because I totally was not. BUT because if I was a cutter pregnant woman then this is what I would be wearing and where it would be from and because I am really good at shopping and spending your money. No seriously, its a talent and a problem.

ONE STOP SHOPPING STORES:

  • NORDSTROM -  great for dresses, underwear, shapewear, jeans really everything as per usual 


  •  A PEA IN THE POD - I personally shopped here a lot, despite absolutely hating the name. But the sales associates i encountered were extremely helpful picking out clothes for me and especially bras. My boobs jumped two cup sizes by 15 weeks and I would have never picked up the bra she choose for me since it look ridiculously large but it fit and was so comfortable. Never took it off! I also really liked their LUXE brand maternity jeans, which ran around $100 and totally wore them for at least 3 months post par-tum. It was so hard to return to regular jeans.

  • MOTHERHOOD - Same company as A Pea in the Pod but less expensive (think of A Pea in the POD as GAP and Motherhood as more of an OLD NAVY) I really didnt shop here until the last trimester, when I didnt care about looking cute anymore and just needed more large sweaters, bigger underwear and nursing tank tops. Their leggings ran too short for me (I am 5'9").  Oh and wore the shit out of the post partum c-section underwear, with a nursing tank , sweater and pajama pants for at least the first two months at home.

HIGHER END STORES: 

  • SHOPBURU- For during pregnancy and After! A lot of it is focused on after in my opinion, loose fit clothing for when you want to look stylish but you cant deal with waist bands yet. 


  • LEGOE HERITAGE - Australian modern maternity clothing line that I discovered after I had Anders. LOVE their clothes, joggers, super comfy stylish clothes.

TRENDY CLOTHES: 

  • TOPSHOP  and ASOS -  This is wear you get fun statement pieces that you know you are going to wear only during this pregnancy. Don't get me wrong they have great basics at both these stores too. I am just not convinced the materials will make it through more then one pregnancy. I mean go big or go home, to sleep because you can't get enough sleep at this point! Also good for nursing tops too!

BASIC BASICS: 

  • GAP and OLD NAVY - maternity cotton tops galore, don't think I need to elaborate too much on this. Also, LOVE all the baby clothes at both these stores.
 

MUST HAVE ITEMS: 

  • BEYOND YOGA MATERNITY LEGGINGS  - LOVE, LOVE, LOVE so super soft. Wore these months after I delivered too. 
  •  BLANQI- Post partum high waist leggings and super supportive tank top (comes in black and white) probably just buy both.
