Buying Maternity Clothes: Jeans
Maternity jeans are an excellent investment for your maternity wardrobe. A great—and I mean great—pair of maternity jeans will make you look and feel fantastic during and even after your pregnancy. Check for the Lycra or Spandex percentage in the denim: It should be at least 4 percent stretch to allow for your growing body to expand and recover comfortably. Please don't cheap out in this department, or you'll end up with saggy, baggy knees and an unflattering style.
Once you've invested in these maternity jeans, you can proudly wear them as often as you'd like. They're perfect for going from comfy weekend wear (paired with a great tee, tank or sweater) to nighttime chic (with a gorgeous tunic or embellished sweater).
I also suggest getting the most use out of your non-maternity track pants and other casual clothes because you'll want to save your maternity clothes budget for items that really matter.
