Maternity clothes suck, except these ones which don't so much.
I promised my husband that I wouldn't spend 9 months in leggings. I mean, you give less of a shit what he thinks as time goes on and you have ankles in your ribs. But to keep the last bit of my dignity in tact I decided to invest in some good maternity clothes. Now that is a tough term, as most maternity clothes suck. Polka dots and frills, no thank you. The market is crying out for an upheaval. I even (in a hormonal, slightly nut job state) emailed Sweaty Betty to ask that if they were so made up on empowering and catering to women why the hell had they decided to miss out half the population, we still wanted to work out (or lounge about in gym wear pretending to!) To be fair on them, they responded with a very pleasant email to say that it was in their future plans. Even if that was just to shut me up, I was pleased with their comeback.
SO in light of this. I have decided to do a series of posts which cover some of my maternity must haves, note these are not all actual maternity clothes, more things I've found that I feel comfortable in. Lets start with the hardest OUT OUT CLOTHES. Ok so I'm not knocking back the prosecco like I used to but it doesn't mean I don't want to go out (Just as long as I'm back at a reasonable hour to get my 12 hours).
PS. I realise that most of these clothes are black. I should really branch out.
