Maternity wardrobe

“I don’t want to spend a lot on maternity clothes”, she said during the 1st and 2nd trimester. How naive…Did I really think I wasn’t going to need much? Third trimester started with nice warm weather and a few heatwaves and finding comfortable and suitable clothing became a daily struggle. I thought I could wear most of my tops and blouses if I just found some maternity jeans/trousers/skirts. Wrong! My chest has expanded a lot more than I envisaged. I thought I could still fit into some of my trousers. Wrong! My thighs have also expanded to carry the extra weight. Well, I thought I had muscular and strong thighs before but maybe they needed to grow a bit more?! ๐Ÿ˜ฆ (Just to add though, maternity leggings and jeans are so comfy…)

And even if everyone has said my bump was neat and I don’t look like I’ve gained much weight, I feel increasingly uncomfortable. To cheer myself up I wanted some photos in my new clothes and see myself through my husband’s camera lens. This time the camera really has added a few extra pounds… ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve bought most of the stuff from Asos and have found them all stunning. ย The brands include Asos’s own maternity clothing line, New Look, Bluebelle, Chi Chi Clothing, Mama.licious to name just a few.

The most comfortable by far have been my old pair of bikinis! I’m so glad I didn’t spend any money on maternity one-piece swimwear. That’s fine if you’re fine flaunting your pregnant belly on the beach. I didn’t mind.

What maternity clothes could you not have lived with? Leggings? Jeans? Stretchy dresses?
