Does anyone have clothes shopping advice? I'm a plus sized women on a budget, I usually don't buy many outfits at once. Since we're TTC, should I buy things that fit now or things that are too big? This will be my third pregnancy. My first I got away with baggy clothes and stretch (yoga) pants, never needed maternity items. The second time around, I ballooned and was in maternity clothes by the end of the second month. This is my first time TTC, I just went off the pill in August, so no idea how long it will take this time around.
I swore a year ago I would go on a diet and lose the weight, so I donated most of my winter clothes as motivation. Stupid move, now it's getting cold outside and I have very little clothing!
I went shopping and bought a few things at Target and Old Navy. I bought 2 pairs of jeans with stretch to them, I was in between sizes so i bought the bigger size. And I bought a few shirts that were looser and longer, mostly long sleeve cotton basics that I can layer under a cardigan or short sleeved shirt if we're not pregnant, or layer over a maternity tank if we are. If we get pregnant right away, the baby would be due early summer, so none of these looser shirts will be able to double-up as post-baby clothes, it will be too hot out.
Any advice on fall/winter clothes shopping?
