Would you buy maternity wear whilst it's on sale??

    Hey Ladies :flower:
    I'm currently only 5+3 but always show early, I bloated right away with my daughter and even though I had awful sickness & lost weight, the bloat never went down and by 11 weeks I was beyond uncomfortable and had to start wearing maternity clothes, which cost a fortune!!

    I've just been browsing the sales as already I can only fit in one pair of jeans, which are getting uncomphy as they are high waist and noticed all the maternity wear on sale.

    So my question is, would you buy maternity wear at a bargain price in the sales early on or wait and possibly pay double??

    Thank you x

    I brought lots at the beginning of my pregnancy that were on sale. Maternity clothes full price are really expensive. I started wearing mine straight away, as I too have been suffering from bloating. Id definately recommend treating yourself to some maternity clothes already if they are cheap. They are so much more comfortable than trying to squeeze in prepregnancy clothes. Even better if they are on sale! x

    I have already bought some and am wearing it have been since I was about 5 weeks as I just got to uncomfortable in normal clothes. My view on it was that I always planned to have another child and if god forbid anything went wrong with this pregnancy then I would need it again at some point

    Thank you so much! I'm glad others get uncomphy this early on too! It's horrid wearing them all day too. Think I might go buy some :winkwink:

    I'm thinking about heading to a few consignment sales here within the next few weeks. I'm pretty bloated and am just getting uncomfortable in my regular clothes. I think if you want to go pick up some maternity clothes, do it!

    I have a lot of mine from last time but didn't want to wear it incase my family recognized it. But I did get some maternity yoga pants because mine were too tight. Got them like a month ago. I say if it's on sale grab a bargin.

    :Wave from OR here too!:

    I did the same, bought some from a consignment sale recently. I know we will have fancy parties in the Christmas season, and I am NOT paying full price for a fancy maternity dress :dohh:

    I ended up getting a pair of over the bump jeans (find under the bump uncomfortable) and a few tops :) I chose to collect in store and I am desperately hoping they are there by Thursday as we have a concert on the evening and at this rate I'll be turning up with my buttons open, holding a cardi closed!! :blush: I'm continuing to look around, especially for linen trousers!

    Also, for mums on their 2+ pregnancy, did you find your feet were really achey?? With my daughter I lived in UGGS as my feet were hella achey & slightly bigger :wacko: unfortunately, my husband got gloss on the front of my UGGS so I'm also on the hunt for comfortable footwear!

    It's crazy expensive!! Unfortunately I seem to of caught the tail end of the sales so there wasn't too much in the way of jeans or trousers etc.. I'm just Googling now as I have pretty much no idea where sells maternity wear :blush:

    yes. but I'm a bigger lady so clothes with more belly room are easily adjusted for normal clothes.

    also I don't wear trousers, only dresses and tunics so again, easier to just adopt into non maternity wear! j
