In family portraits released last week of Price William, Duchess Kate, and newborn Prince George, Kate wore a fuchsia dress from Séraphine Maternity. It sold out within hours of the photos’ publication. At $79, the dress was tantalizingly accessible for commoners, who can’t go through pregnancy in custom-made Jenny Packham. But some might consider the price still too high for a piece that will fit for only a few months.

In a new buying guide, recommends a few places to shop based on consumer and expert feedback online. Expectant mothers can find comfortable, casual style for under $40.

Old Navy (T-shirts starting at $10/jeans starting at $20) doesn’t carry maternity clothes in all its stores but peddles an extensive collection online with true-to-size fit, timely delivery, and hassle-free returns, according to reviews. Shoppers snap up trendy pieces on the cheap and appreciatively note that the jeans retain their shape after wearing and washing. The ample selection extends to outerwear, activewear, and even swimsuits.

Motherhood Maternity (T-shirts starting at $13/jeans starting at $20) stands out for its enormous inventory, including more than 100 jean styles and washes. The selection spans from skinny jeans to wide leg and from stretchy side panels to a patented design that covers the entire belly. Customers report that many of the garments take them all the way through pregnancy and beyond.

Target carries inexpensive maternity clothes, including a basic V-neck tee by Liz Lange Maternity that has become a staple for many women.

Target (T-shirts starting at $10/jeans starting at $25) has a licensing deal with Liz Lange Maternity, whose basic V-neck tee has become a staple for many women. They buy it in multiple colors and take to the reviews section of the website to laud the thick fabric, which doesn’t let bras or belly bands show through. The selection here is a bit more limited but long on comfort and value.

Checklists like this one from BabyCenter can help you choose versatile pieces to get you through pregnancy in as few clothing purchases as possible. Start by shopping in your own closet. Zero in on elastic waistbands, low-slung leggings, cardigans and blazers that can go unbuttoned, and jersey tops and other knits that will stretch as your belly grows. See what you can find on your partner’s side as well. If she’s a woman, does she wear a larger size than you? A man’s button-down can be worn with rolled-up sleeves and feminine accessories and a husband or boyfriend’s T-shirt always makes for comfy pajamas.


Where to get stylish dress clothes on a budget?

2007-06-27 21:18:28 by TheHeavenlyOption

All my life I've utterly been hopeless at fashion, but I really want to re-imagine myself with a brand new main inspiration is the band Interpol. Very simple black long-sleeve dress shirts, black dress pants, and the like. Something that looks nice but won't seem out of place at a cafe or bar.
My question is: what's the best store to shop out for stylish dress clothes if you're on a budget? I also don't want something that looks too formal or business-like, and I'm worried that most stores are just stocked with summer clothes right now.
I'm sorry if any of this seems overly obvious but, again, I'm pretty clueless at fashion and I'd appreciate any help

  • Avatar Chris M What is the douchiest clothing line for men 2013?
    May 14, 2013 by Chris M | Posted in Fashion & Accessories

    Ok - in 2011 it was Ed Hardy. In 2012 it was Affliction. But now it's 2013. What kind of designer clothes can a man wear to let women in 2013 know they are a douchebag?

    • Haha. Idk, maybe tapout? Not because of the clothes, but the people who wear it think they're badasses cause of UFC, hence the term douchebag.

  • Avatar karen crossdresser Why is society so narrow minded about what clothes a man can wear?
    Oct 07, 2012 by karen crossdresser | Posted in Other - Society & Culture

    Why is it that a female can wear anything she wants without any problem but if a man wears anything normaly asociated with the oposite sex he is instantly labeled as gay? I mix my clothes up some male some female wear ugg boots ect and just think personaly its time we dropped the stone age attitude towards people who choose to dress this way.after all we are in 2012!

    • This is a question that men need to answer rather than women. Women don't stop men from dressing themselves in the same way that men don't stop women from wearing what they want.

      In the past, men's clothes …an look at either historical models of male dressing which were very varied, or cross cultural styles which have lots of colour and variation in them. These are still forms of masculine dress, but not so straightforward.

  • Avatar Asif What other religion clothing should I compare with the monks robe?
    Jul 08, 2012 by Asif | Posted in Religion & Spirituality

    I have to do a compare or contrast essay and wanted to know which two men's religious clothing should I compare or contrast. I need to be able to also research. Thanks everyone.

    • Try comparing it to the undergarment mormons wear. It's interesting how monks-clearly devoted to their faith, show it by their clothing, and mormons-also very devout, wear it underneath and hide it. Just an idea.

  • Avatar Question Mark What Technologies Would Someone From 1912 Be Impressed With In 2012?
    Nov 14, 2012 by Question Mark | Posted in History

    If a timetravler from 1912 were to come to the year 2012 how impressed do you think they would be?

    • Whether they would be impressed or scared to death is probably the better question. In 1912 cars were just a toy of the rich and local transport was by horse or tram. There were a few motorbuses, but many were still hors …nts always connected to a wire and most calls had to be placed via an operator. Many homes did not have electricity or indoor plumbing.. Female dress was all enveloping and men always wore hats and drab coloured clothes.
