To Buy Maternity Clothes or Not

Some women are super excited about maternity clothing and some women despise maternity clothing.  Contrary to poplar belief, in most cases, maternity clothing is not a requirement.  With the exception of pants or slacks, most regular sized clothing can be worn during pregnancy.  There are also belly extenders that can extend the wear of pre pregnancy slacks and pants.

If larger clothing is needed, there is the option of buying regular clothing in larger sizes.  Not all maternity clothing is super stylish.  If you fancy yourself a “fashionasita”, some of the standard maternity tunics, tops and dresses will hardly meet your standards.  However, simply going up a size or two in regular clothing may present several stylish alternatives to maternity clothing.  Depending your pre pregnancy size, plus size clothing may also be an option.
