On maternity clothes

At 7 months pregnant. Topshop dress.

Let's be honest, Maternity clothes suck! Most of the time there is no style at all, and we are supposed to wear that for more than a year? Because except if we are lucky ones with an amazing metabolism – some do, I know it ^^ - we definitely won't be back to our pre shape or pre-pregnancy clothes just after the birth of our baby. C is now 5 months old, I am a bit under the weight I was when I just got pregnant, but I still have this floppy belly and don't fit well in my pre-pregnancy clothes. I simply don't have the shape for it. So why maternity brands don't do a much bigger effort??

Of course some brands are trying to make it easier on pregnant women, such as Topshop that does a section with maternity clothes, or ASOS. And they are much more wearable – I actually got all of mines from Topshop – and have more the look of “normal” clothes and less like styless women. Why should we suddenly have a non style year only because we got pregnant?

Some designer, such as HATCH are doing some lovely clothes that can be worn before, during and after pregnancy. I just fell in love with some of them (see pics), but all nice designers for Maternity are really expensive..

Some of my favourites from the current Hatch Collection:

The question would probably be then, if it's something like HATCH that could be worn after pregnancy as well, that looks really nice and stylish, maybe it would worth it to put some more pounds in it... But we don't always have that amount of money.. Especially when we usually would whether spend every penny we have for our new baby to come :) But still a question to meditate for next baby :)

Would you spend more money on maternity clothes if you can wear it after pregnancy? Where are you buying your maternity clothes? Which is/are your favourite brand/store for maternity clothes?
