I am trying for my 3rd child, so I have been preparing by buying clothes a bit larger in size. I came across a BCBG Lane Maternity shirt that cost $130! I was like “I’ll wait for Gilt or even stalk Ebay for it.” Well over President’s Day, I noticed the same Lane shirt on bcbg.com. For $98. Yes pretty steep still but compared to the maternity one, I do save over $30.
Oversized shirts have never really appealed to me until after having kids. The roomy size is great for covering the tummy section. Unfortunately most oversized shirts are very unfashionable. I get questions like “When are you due?” How far along are you?” Very damaging to my ego. When I noticed the maternity version, I lamented “Why something so fashionable cannot be made in regular sizing? Should I risk it and just buy the maternity version just at a smaller size?”
I was super excited to see BCBG had sense to make it in both women’s and maternity. I am going to try belting the shirt and wearing with skirts and see how my experiments turn out!
