We developed this directory to help larger women find much needed plus size maternity clothes after our own struggles in finding clothing when I was pregnant. If finding plus size clothing locally is already difficult, finding plus size maternity clothing locally is nearly impossible.
We realize "affordable" is a subjective term defined differently from person to person, but let's face it; there is expensive, and then there is outrageous. A few suggestions to help your money go further would be to; choose a few solid color combinations that can be mixed and matched. Buy clothes that can be worn throughout your pregnancy as your figure continues to expand. Consider buying a few less expensively-priced shirts or dresses that are cut bigger, but are from regular catalogs. Instead of maternity pants with an elastic waist area, check out stretchy leggings. I bought stretchy leggings one size larger than I would normally have worn. Since they had Lycra in them, they fit me better around the waist, but were not too long in the crotch. I wore the leggings throughout my pregnancy and they worked very well and were a MUCH cheaper option.
Remember that pregnancy is only a temporary state of being, and if you can survive on a few things, you will have a lot less invested. However, if you must have a whole wardrobe because of the type of job you have, keep in mind that there is a definite market for resell of gently used plus size maternity clothing. By the way, congratulations and best wishes to you on your pregnancy.
