Everyone knows pregnancy is expensive. Doctors’ appointments, vitamins, baby gear, and maternity clothes add up. Furthermore, a lot of stores have tiny maternity departments. I remember rushing to Kohl’s only to find a small, disorganized section with nothing in my size. It was disappointing, to say the least.
Feeling good about yourself when you’re expecting is important, and it’s not like you can just put life on pause. I still had to attend family parties, work events with my husband, and I had no desire to look like a bum. That’s why I’m happy to share the places I found cute, cheap maternity clothes on a budget.
Zulily– Zulily is amazing when it comes to finding maternity clothes. I found so many cute tops, tunics, and dresses at reasonable prices. Pinkblush is on their constantly, plus you can also score some deals on diaper bags that are stylish. People compliment my Skiphop bag all the time.
Ross– I’m a petite lady so pretty much the only place I could find maternity jeans that actually fit was Ross. Plus, they were super cheap. Don’t spend an arm and a leg on a wardrobe you won’t wear for years to come.
ThredUp– I love ThredUp for formal dresses even when I’m not pregnant. When my grandparent’s 60th-anniversary party was coming up this is where I got my maternity dress. It was an elegant red number that I loved but also only wore once. With few exceptions don’t pay top dollar for dresses you’ll only wear once.
Nordstrom Rack– The clearance section of Nordstrom Rack also has some pretty sweet maternity deals. Look here for staple pieces.
