Want adorable, yet affordable, cheap maternity clothes or even free maternity clothes? Then read on.
Pregnancy lasts a mere nine months and the first three months of your pregnancy you can pretty much get away with no one even knowing you are pregnant. You may even be able to get by with some baggy jeans, sweatpants, skirts, or using a rubber band around your pants button and buttonhole for a while without having to spend any money on maternity clothes for the first trimester.
However, if you are anything like me, I cannot escape wearing maternity clothes: my belly gets huge. But, who wants to spend a regular wardrobe price on clothes they are only going to wear for 6ish months? Certainly not my frugal self! Also note, it’s helpful to buy pieces that make it easy to make multiple maternity outfits out of the same handful of items.
So if you want to know where to get maternity clothes for free, cheap, inexpensive, or at a doable price and on maternity clothes that will actually work for all of those six months, and also make your pregnant self look good, attractive, and not like a giant fashionless blimp, then this is the list for you.
Where to Get Free Maternity Clothes
You can get maternity clothes for free or cheap the same way you get any clothes for free or cheap – friends and family! Chances are you know someone who has been pregnant but isn’t currently pregnant, but still have their maternity clothes in storage. If you are about the same size/build, ask to borrow them! They don’t need them but you certainly do.
If you don’t have any friends your size or they aren’t willing to share or buy you maternity clothes for you as an awesome pregnancy gift, you can always check or ask on sites like Freecycle or Craigslist for free maternity clothes. You can also check on your local Facebook Community Garage Sale Groups if someone is giving away maternity clothes (or perhaps would let you borrow them).
Where to Get Cheap Secondhand Maternity Clothes
To get cheap maternity clothes, secondhand is definitely the way to go still. Remember, some people have only wore these clothes a handful of times over 6-9 months but may have spent a good amount of money on their clothing and it’s likely still in great condition. There are lots of great stores, online retailers where you can get secondhand maternity clothes for cheap.
