Yep! I'm normally a 14 but got some cheap stretch jersey tshirt kind of material ones in a size 18-20 off ebay and they look perfect. Super comfy and I don't have to shave my legs which is just as well cos I'm struggling to reach them!!
Yes, I did this a lot. I wore a standard (meaning not maternity) Maxi dress for my sisters wedding the week before my DD was born. I found I didn't need much actual maternity clothing by wearing dresses which either draped loosely or ones in stretch material. Usually much cheaper too.
Minor thread derail here (sorry!). Dead keen to wear maxi dress through summer with this pregnancy but HOW do you cope with all the extra boobage?! Spaghetti straps and strapless just not an option for me without unsightly maternity bra straps and bra less is no option at all unless I want to get arrested . Any tips?
well it's funny you ask that Baffled... I tried a maternity bra and didn't like it so DSil said to try soft crop top type bras and they have hideous straps on them!
However in the sunshine at the weekend I spent the whole time wearing a bikini top and it was the most supportive thing I have worn in weeks... and you could totally get away with a bikini top under a maxi dress no problem!
Oh confused I fear my bikini top days may be numbered...I'm in terribly sensible two piece tankinis these days (with lots of underwire support!) I'll get searching for some Maxis with wider straps to hide the scaffolding...or perhaps worn with a short sleave cardigan. Or maybe I'll just live in leggings and wide sleeve vests for the summer after all
