Save Big Bucks On Your Pregnancy Dresses
Maternity clothes are probably the biggest money drain for any pregnant woman. Not only do they have a small shelf-life (after all, you will use them only for a few months) they also tend to become old-fashioned in a jiffy.
So how does someone plan their pregnancy wardrobe without allowing it to make a big dent in their budget?
Consider borrowing from friends or relatives. Almost everyone hangs on to their maternity clothes and they will gladly allow you borrow it for some time.
Plunder your husband or your partner’s closets for baggy shirts, large-size shorts, and roomy socks. Frequent yard sales and garage sales where housewives might be disposing their maternity wear.
Run the clothes through a good dry cleaning service you don’t want to catch all the germs, mites, dust, etc that might have collected on old clothes. Open the seams of your old clothes – you might be surprised at how long you can wear your regular clothes when you are bulging with pregnancy fat if you can make them roomier.
Stepping out for a party and you need something more trendy? Well, consider buying last season’s pregnancy dresses. Everyone at the party will be busy cooing over your pregnancy glow to even notice your clothes.
Also, you might be excused because everyone buys pregnancy dresses well in advance and if you are just a season behind, well, that’s actually quite sweet. And anyhow, pregnant mothers are forgiven a lot more than out-of- fashion pregnancy dresses, so relax!
