Maternity Wardrobe: Final Notes

One of the frustrations with maternity clothes is that since options are pretty limited, it is very likely that at least one other pregnant lady in your vicinity owns the same item of clothing as you. And none of us like that thought (even though it's probably true of most of our non-maternity items too).  Two bits of advice for making sure you don't end up wearing the same outfit as one of the other pregnant ladies in your MOPS group . . .

1. Take advantage of all your non-maternity pieces.  It might be likely that someone else is wearing the same maternity top as you, but it is not very likely that another pregnant lady will be wearing the same non-maternity item as you!  I feel like all my non-maternity-but-works-during-pregnancy clothes have kept my pregnancy wardrobe more interesting and unique in general.  I also never really worry about another pregnant lady wearing the same stretchy shirt that I bought at Forever 21 (or wherever).  So if you are going somewhere where pregnant women will be attending in force, something non-maternity is probably your safest bet.

(I was trying to decide which picture to include here and realized that nothing in this outfit was actually maternity!  Safe to say no other pregnant ladies would be wearing the same outfit.)


2. Accessories, cardigans, and jackets are your friends.  Someone else might have the same shirt as you, but will they pair it with a cardigan and belt the same way you do?  Will they wear the same jacket and scarf as you?  Probably not.  If you are looking to keep your own style and not be caught wearing the same exact outfit as another pregnant woman, change it up with some different accessories and layering pieces!  Even if people notice that you and another person are wearing the same item, you most likely won't be "twins".

(I think this top that I got from Pink Blush is a pretty popular seller, but it's unlikely the other pregnant women who bought it also have the same non-maternity red jacket that I paired it with here.)


Overall, when maternity shopping, I'd say just to look for pieces that you feel good in.  It's hard enough dressing a pregnant body without feeling like all your clothes make you look huge.  If you try something on and it makes you feel good about the way you look, get it!  Feel pretty wearing it.  All pregnant women are special and gorgeous - there is such a thing as a pregnant glow, but sometimes it's hard to feel the "glow" when you are the pregnant girl.  Finding maternity clothes that make you feel cute helps with that.
