Based on my own experience, maternity clothes are expensive. Being a plus-sized mummy-to-be I’ve struggled to find clothes that fit well and actually suit me. I really didn’t want to look like a beached whale wearing a tent again so have strayed away from really loose fitting clothing. I don’t want to appear larger than I actually am!
So, with only 11 weeks of my pregnancy left, my daytime maternity wardrobe is quite limited. I was very lucky that a friend gave me her entire maternity wardrobe with pieces that she’d only worn on a couple of occasions so I’ve been able to add to the collection with a few key items on my very limited budget that I’m hoping will see me through until February.
Disclaimer: For the purpose of a review, I was sent a pair of Jeans from JoJo Maman Bebe to try out and I was thoroughly impressed. The jeans are a really good fit, very comfortable to wear and a lovely length in the leg. As a plus sized model (ha ha) I was worried about how their sizing would come up but I needn’t of worried. The best feature of the straight leg maternity jeans for me was the deep over-the-bump jersey waistline which helps keep my BabyShilts bump all tucked up perfect for these cold and blustery Autumn days.
