7 Ways to Save on Maternity Wear

7 Ways to Save on Maternity Wear

Though Pregnancy Awareness Month is all about health and wellness, new mothers are also confronted with changing bodies and budgets.

Before you run out to your closest maternity store and buy a new wardrobe, consider these creative ways to help extend the life of your pre-pregnancy clothes and save money on maternity must-haves.

Even if you plan to use your maternity wardrobe on your next pregnancy, remember you may not be pregnant during the same season and you may be a different size.

THINK PRACTICALLY

The belly band is a marvelous invention that literally extends the waist on your jeans. Even if you gain a little weight outside of your belly, try buying regular jeans in a larger size and add a belly band.

EXTEND YOUR PRE-PREGNANCY JEANS

Basics like a stretchy one-size cami, tanks, t-shirts and belly bands are good buys at maternity stores. These basics can last through multiple pregnancies and be worn on their own or layered under sweaters for colder months. Since most maternity shops charge a premium, sign up for their e-newsletters to get notified about sales and promotions.

BUY THE BASICS

Now that you’ve stocked up on the basics, it’s time to splurge on a couple of maternity-specific garments that make you feel pretty!
