Building a low cost plus size maternity wardrobe is a great idea. Why spend a lot of money building a big maternity wardrobe that you will only wear for about six months? Instead, you can construct a basic wardrobe of essentials combining maternity and non-maternity clothes at a price that is less than a wardrobe built entirely of maternity clothes.
Here how: You can supplement your basic discount maternity wardrobe with larger-sized, non-maternity, loosely-styled tops and bottoms for your more casual needs. For example, a few pairs of sweatpants or yoga pants combined with some larger t-shirts and sweaters, all 2-3 sizes larger than your pre-pregnancy size, might be all you need for casual wear during the winter. For larger, non-maternity plus sizes (such as 4x and 5x) check out JustMySize and WomenWithin.
Low cost doesn’t have to mean boring. You can always supplement your basic maternity wardrobe with stylish selections for work or special events. Good quality, reasonably-priced plus size maternity clothes are available from several online retailers including Motherhood Maternity and PinkBlush Maternity. For extra savings be sure and look for sales and special offers to increase your savings.
