If you're pregnant but hate leggings what are you wearing?
So far I've managed all my old clothes apart from jeans. But at 15 weeks skirts are tight too now. I really am not a big fan of leggings. I do a lot of yoga and wear yoga pants for that, so leggings are too similar and don't feel smart. So does pregnancy have to mean leggings? I'd rather not spend a fortune on maternity wear, so far what I do have is far too big. Is there an alternative I'm missing?
I wore lots of dresses, tights and flat boots for work (winter pregnancy) with a cardigan over the top open if it was cold. I had a great dress from fatface that wasn't even maternity that just grew with my (huge!) bump and went back to normal when washed! It's still good as new. Jumper dresses are good until you get so big they ride up at the front if they aren't maternity. Wrap dresses are good too, I used a cami underneath them to hide the ludicrous pregnancy cleavage
