So I have started looking at clothes that will suit me during pregnancy but will also be fine to wear once bub is born.
For example, I bought 3 Bonds "tube" tops from Kmart which are ribbed cotton and very long so they fit over the baby bump perfectly. They go back into their original shape after each wash so they will be fine to wear when I'm not pregnant.
I also bought a couple of pairs of trackie pants that have a roll down waist - you can wear them rolled down under the bump or unroll the top and wear over the belly to keep it warm. These were also from Kmart - they have them in Bonds but also in Kmart's own brand (which are a bit cheaper).
I have also found that a stretchy belly band in black goes with everything and allows me to wear my normal tops but keep my bump covered.
Plus I already had several long stretchy singlet tops from Cotton On that I wear under other tops every day.
Does anyone have any other tips for cheap alternatives to maternity clothes?
