Trying to plan clothing when you have no idea what size you will be post-baby is not much fun. Trying to find things that will be nursing-friendly and can also double as a "normal" wardrobe item can also be tricky. I absolutely loathe spending money on maternity/nursing clothing when it is so temporary and most of the time not cheap. I've had a little bit of success through sales at Destination Maternity, especially when combined with some gift cards that I received for my birthday back in October. Good staples --like maternity jeans, tank tops, leggings, and t-shirts--can be found at Ross for really great prices but the selection of color and style is very limited. I've found a few things on Zulily, where the only down-side is wait time for the order to ship. Most items that I have ordered from Zulily have arrived within about 3 weeks, but I placed an order almost a month ago for a maternity dress that I had intended to wear to my baby shower and it still has yet to ship. Maybe I'll find something else to wear that dress to? Otherwise, I guess it will be stored for a few years until baby#2 comes around.
Here are some Zulily purchases that I recently made, and at $15/per item I'm pretty happy with it!
These are all regular women's clothing items that seem very postpartum & nursing friendly. They are also ones that I can wear to work or dress down. I'm also loving all of the fun pastel colors for spring :)
One other clothing item that is very important for winter pregnancy is a good maternity jacket! The prices on those can get out-of-control expensive, but I highly recommend this MAMA Parka from H&M maternity! It is nice enough that it's appropriate for work environments or a nice evening out, but also fitting for a casual day running errands. The material is also thick enough where it's a great 3-season jacket for the weather in SC. I have it in black, but it also comes in a nice beige color right now. Last fall they also carried it in olive green, so I'm guessing they may switch out the 2nd color offering seasonally....
