Let me get this out of the way first: No. No, I'm not pregnant. No, I have no plans on being pregnant. These just happen to be cute clothes that can be worn with or without a bump!
When I was pregnant, I had a hard time finding maternity clothes that I wanted to wear. I didn't like the ones that screamed Look! Baby on board! but just buying larger sizes in regular apparel looked baggy and disheveled. There were a few brands and stores that I found that seemed to have a cute variety of tops, bottoms and dresses... but the price tags always made me cringe. I'm going to pay how much for something that will be worn for only a limited time? Ugh.
So, where does that leave? Is it possible to find cheap maternity clothes that are actually stylish and cute? It is if you look no further than right online at Kiki's Maternity Fashions.
With prices well below not only what you'll find in maternity boutiques but also on other websites, Kiki's Maternity Fashions has a wide selection of casual and dressy apparel that is trendy, chic and extremely affordable. Everything from tight to flowing tops, short to floor-length dresses and even hip jeans - with a large majority priced at under $20.
Right away I appreciated how easy it is to browse their site, as Kiki's Maternity Fashions has their clothing categorized by apparel type and then sub-categorized by color for even more convenient shopping. As they are continually adding to their inventory, styles stay current and fashionable while also giving you even more options every time you visit.
Plus, that also means that there is a Clearance section for items that have been marked down and even an Under $10 category where you can pick up a real bargain! Or, another great collection not to miss is the Transitional line that is designed particularly for when you're either just starting to outgrow your regular clothing at the beginning of your pregnancy or just working to get back into them at the end. What a great idea!
After going back and forth through the selection quite a few times, I finally settled on the Cream Long Sleeve Maternity Shirt/Tunic for its stylish simplicity... and because I figured that I could wear it underneath a sweater if it made me appear pregnant when I had it on - not really the look I happen to be going for right now.
I love how, for each item that they sell, Kiki's Maternity Fashions gives you three different views (e.g. front, back and close up or from the side) so that you don't have to wonder what your selection will look like from various angles. Also, as this shirt comes in five other colors, I liked how a picture of each one was shown on the bottom of the page so that I easily could see the other choices available.
The only thing I wasn't prepared for when this top arrived? Just how much it would impress me!
There isn't really a way to describe how amazing this shirt feels, as soft isn't really a strong enough word. I continually ran my hands up and down it as I admired the clean lines and quality craftsmanship that went into each seam or stretchy hem.
Putting it on, I almost couldn't believe that this was a maternity shirt. The cotton/polyester/spandex mix seemed to sort of mold itself to me - but not in an unflattering clingy way. I could see how a baby bump would be adorable sticking out the front and the long length is great for keeping the belly covered... but I have actually worn this shirt and received compliments and honestly haven't looked the slightest bit pregnant in it. How is that for versatile apparel?
Whether you are looking for maternity clothing to wear for everyday, to the office or for a special occasion or night out, Kiki's Maternity Fashions makes it fast and easy to pick out exactly what you need for all stages of your pregnancy. With their affordable prices and simple return policy, there's nothing to worry about except which of their stylish items to pick!
