I can’t really say that I look forward to buying maternity clothes. It can be really hard to find cheap maternity clothes that are also durable enough to last through the pregnancy, and don’t make you look like a frumpy old lady!
I think the most expensive item I saw was the adorable Brown Button Down Maternity Coat, which at $35.99, is still about half (or less) the price of other (not as cute) coats I have looked at.
I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn’t a paper thin t-shirt like I expected, but more of a lightweight fleece (55% cotton, 36% polyester, 9% spandex.)
I really wavered on what size to choose. Kiki’s Fashions has a general sizing guide (they note that Kiki’s Fashions clothing tends to run a little small), but they also have a sizing guide for each item on the product’s page. I am normally a size small, but I took my measurements (that was a shock at 34 weeks pregnant, LOL!) and I was at the top of the sizing for a small. So, I went with a medium, knowing that I’m only going to get bigger, and I definitely don’t want to look like a stuffed sausage.
The shirt is a really nice blend of feeling casual, but having little details like the gathers at the neckline, to make it seem a little bit dressier. It feels so soft on, and feels like a cozy fleece pullover. It keeps me warm without making me hot; I don’t need to wear the layers that I usually do!
I also wondered exactly what this was going to look once I put it on. I’m not one of those lucky pregnant ladies who is thin with a round bump. Oh no, my thighs and face get pregnant too! So I’m probably not going to look like the woman modeling the shirt!
I think it looks nice (if I do say so myself.) It’s just form-fitting enough to make me look stylish, but not so tight that it shows every bump (the thicker fabric helps that too) or that I just look like I ate too much. It is a longer, almost tunic style shirt, and since I’m maybe 5 feet tall (if you round up or measure me with shoes on) it looks even longer on me. I think it would look great dressed down with yoga pants, or even with leggings and dressier shoes! After 3 or 4 washes, it has started to get a little bit fuzzy (I’d expect that from fleece) but it still looks great!
Kiki’s Fashions has a great selection, and they also have an “under $10” section and a clearance section where you can snap up some great deals. They are constantly changing their styles, and add new fashions daily, so check the site regularly, and don’t wait to buy something if you like it!
WIN! a $25 GC to Kiki’s Fashions!
