Today my goal is to dispel the ugly myth that cute inexpensive maternity clothes are really hard to find or just don’t exist. Not too many moons ago, when I started my quest to update my wardrobe, I was under the impression that cute affordable maternity clothes did not exist. I was pleasantly surprised at how wrong my assumption was. Not only are there plenty of options, but most of them are made out of decent fabrics that stand up to frequent wear, washes and some abuse.
Zulily is a great place to shop for cute maternity clothes. They offer daily sales events for up to 90% off on high end apparel and other stuff for moms, babies and kids. I’ve purchased maternity clothing from Zulily several times and I can’t say enough about how great my experience has been. There are a few things to watch out for with Zulily. They do not accept returns and due to the way Zulily sources their products, you will have to wait for weeks to receive your order.
Other great stores that sell cute inexpensive maternity clothes:
-Target carries the Liz Lang maternity clothing line. Liz Lang knows her stuff when it comes to designing cute and functional maternity clothing. The line is reasonably priced, however like with most clothing sold at Target, the quality is just OK. My Liz Lang t-shirts stretched out and didn’t weather the wash as well as items I purchased at other stores.
-Old Navy has a cute maternity clothing collection available online and in select stores. (Check online for the in-store locations.) The clothes are cute, affordable and much like Old Navy’s other styles, almost indestructible.
–Figure 8 Maternity is one of my favorite online shops when it comes to stylish inexpensive maternity clothes. They carry a variety of styles and are very user friendly. Whenever you are shopping for an out of stock item, Figure8 will e-mail you when the item is back in stock in your size and desired color. Talk about superb customer service! They also have a great newsletter alerting subscribers about new arrivals and offering coupons for these items. Figure8 automatically awards points for purchases that can be later used as cash towards a purchase.
-If you are looking for special event maternity clothing, check out your local maternity clothing consignment store. Some maternity clothing consignment shops offer special event dress rentals. If you aren’t a fan of buying a dress you are only going to wear once, this is a great alternative to purchase cute cheap maternity clothes!
