Off topic: Maternity Clothing

This post is for my friends who ask, “What did you wear?” Love you, friends!


MY FAVORITE DRESS: Storq T-shirt Dress

I wore this pretty much my entire last trimester and first month postpartum. It is just wonderful.

I do, however, highly recommend some maternity spanx because it is form fitting at the end and I liked the extra support (Hellooo, giant stomach with twins.)


MY FAVORITE TANK FOR UNDER EVERYTHING ELSE: BLANQI EVERYDAY MATERNITY TANK

It just helps - especially at the end.

Yes, the tank will make you look like this.

Duh.


LEGGINGS: STORQ

Ok ok. I really enjoyed these leggings. Super soft, buuuut they’re not perfectly opaque. So minus one star?

Side note: the best non-maternity leggings are Girlfriend Collective.

FAVORITE MATERNITY TOPS: Gap, Target, Gilt, and ASOS

I honestly just shopped around and purchased what looked most like non-pregnant Caroline.
Sizes: I just purchased my regular sizing and that worked fine for the whole pregnancy.

Here are a few I would purchase today if were enceinte:

One. Two. Three. Four. Five.


SPLURGE ITEMS: That is, either win them in a contest (like me!) or find them on Poshmark (more likely.)

Hatch Clothing: (I got their Airplane Sweater and similar sweater to this one):


UNDERWEAR: Just a bigger size of whatever.

NO ONE TOLD ME I WOULD GROW OUT OF MY CURRENT UNDERWEAR. So my mom purchased me the biggest granny panties club pack from Target and I loved them. You’re welcome. I never tried the fancy kind, but if you got the $$, splurge.


JEANS: I prefer inset panel.

I found J.Crew jeans on Poshmark (J. Crew discontinued their line of maternity wear) and wore them the whole time.

Several friends have recommend the Jessica Simpson maternity jeans.

I prefer inset panel, and never over the stomach. Blech. (Also, I wore my Blanqi tank with everything so I didn’t need the panels etc.)

inset jeans

be cool and wear them.


WHAT I WOULDN’T GET AGAIN:

FANCY JEANS: I acquired some J. Brand jeans. MEH. I wore them maybe twice. Go with the Jessica Simpson from the brand maternity store. They fit better. ALTHOUGH: These Madewell Maternity Jeans are oh so choice.

GAP NURSING TANKS: They just fit me weird and faded quickly.

I think that’s it! I’m sure I’ll think of more as I sit on this, but there you go.
