Maternity Clothes Options For Expecting Mothers

Apr 9, 2008
If you are an expecting mother and you are looking for other options when it comes to maternity clothes, there are actually a number of ways for you to spend less or not spend at all. Quite often, with the many expenses associated with your pregnancy like vitamins, check-ups, etc., you don't have such a big budget when it comes to clothes. Plus, when you visit your local department stores you find drab designs in dull colors or you find items you may like but are too pricey.

If you have a family member or a friend who has gotten pregnant before you can borrow some of her clothes. If you have a friend who happens to be at the same time pregnant as well, you can actually swap clothes among yourselves.

You can also try plus size clothing although you cannot expect these to fit just as well as clothes made especially for pregnant women.

If your husband is a few sizes larger than you are, you can ask permission if he could lend you some of his more comfortable clothes that you could maybe use when you are just at home.

Good finds on maternity clothes can be on consignment shops, secondhand outlets or yard sales. Check out your local newspaper for up and coming yard sales that would be selling maternity clothes. Check out as well discount outlets where you may find great maternity buys.

To save money, leasing maternity clothes is possible. Some of the types of clothes that you could lease include business wear, swimwear, formal wear, plus sizes, etc. With the availability of leasing maternity clothes, pregnant women are no longer at the mercy of pricey maternity clothes that retail shops and shopping malls may offer.

If you are good at sewing and making your own clothes, you might as well make your own maternity clothes. Not only will you get to design it the way you like it, you can get a good fit as it is custom made. You can find many patterns available.

When shopping for maternity clothes, you always should keep in mind that after your pregnancy you will have to go back to more or less your original size so avoid purchasing too many clothes that may end up being unused. Make sure to purchase items that can match with the regular clothes that you have. You may be able to use some of your pre-maternity clothes with your maternity wear as well as your existing accessories and shoes.
