    Maternity Wear - Suggestions?

    Hi - I am getting a little discouraged by the Maternity wear selections out there - some of the stuff looks nice from afar but is of very poor quality upon closer inspection. Am I being too picky or have other noticed this as well? Also, does anyone have any ideas for some basic pieces that I can wear for an office setting? No jeans allowed!!
    Thx

    Don't be afraid to visit the consignment shops, value village type stores. You should be able to find clothes made of a better quality for the same price as the cheaper ones you were looking at - maybe even a better deal. I think one of the things to remember is that while things like pants are basic the styles go in and out of fashion and many pregnant woman want new clothes with each pregnancy rather than storing the old ones unless you are planning children very close together. It might seem like the quality is poor but it will get you through the 5-6 months you need them.

    Its true! A lot of the affordable maternity clothes are so cheaply made, it is awful! The retailers know you need it!!

    Check out craigslist, ebay.

    The clothes are made to last a few months, for one pregnancy not for daily wear for years like regular clothes.

    They should last you through your pregnancy without trouble...and odds are will last through an additional pregnancy.

    I will caution you about used maternity clothing. They can work fine BUT they have been stretched out by a previous pregnant mom. The pants will lose their stretch and odds are you will find you are constantly hiking them up in the earlier months of pregnancy because your belly isn't as big as the clothes were stretched! Which, really isn't a big deal but is an issue worth noting!

    Maternity Wear That Lasts

    When I was pregnant only 9 months ago, I discovered some baby wearing maternity clothes. The great thing about the pieces I bought was that I could continue to use them after the baby was born and well into the 9th month. One brand is ViJays based out of Montreal. I liked them so much I wore them everyday once the baby arrived mostly out of necessity as the child refused to be put down without wailing. They have other breastfeeding and maternity clothing for prenatal.

    Which city do you live in? That will dictate some of your locations for sourcing quality clothing. I visited every maternity store in the lower mainland, Fraser valley, sunshine coast, as well as when I traveled internationally. Much like you noticed, much of it was just stretchy jersey material, which I did not find professional to wear to work. The nicer items were priced outrageously. It takes a creative eye to locate a style that works with a price that's reasonable.

    I agree. I remember wearing some jeans from them. They were so comfortable! I remember being so excited about my first pair of jeans from them so much...that i ended up ordering 4 more online but in different colours.

A few tips...

Always ensure that your child receives quality care by taking the time to investigate the provider and by asking for references! We simply cannot verify the claims of every daycare provider.
