Maternity Clothes and Sales Shopping

If you can face shopping in the sales, I whole heartedly recommend it for bagging yourself some bargain maternity basics. (Top tip for clothes shopping - sales or no sales - book a day off work/get a babysitter, go during the week and head out as early in the morning as possible to avoid traffic on the roads and lots of obnoxious shoppers on the high street).

This morning I went out to spend my birthday money with no idea that the summer sales had started in most of the shops I planned to visit. The result? I managed to bag all of this (plus two pairs of plain black leggings - not photographed) for the princely sum of £50!

From L-R
Navy & white stripey maxi dress (non-maternity), £10, Primark ♥ Red checked shirt, £10, Mama by H&M ♥ Black 
cardigan, £7, Mama by H&M ♥ White strappy vest top, £3, Mama by H&M ♥ Red & white stripey vest top, £3, Mama 
by H&M ♥ Little black t-shirt dress, £9.99, Mama by H&M

The non maternity maxi dress was a great buy in Primark. There was no need for me to buy a larger size as it is made of stretchy jersey material that is gathered under the bust and along the side seams - making it perfect to accommodate a growing bump. (I'll upload a picture of the dress being worn to show this over the upcoming weeks).

The little black dress was another fab buy, and ONLY TEN POUNDS (non-sale, I hasten to add)! This would look perfect styled with a waist-cincher belt (under the bust) - and heels for a night out, or gladiator sandals to dress the look down for during the day.

Another fantastic bargain I got today that I wanted to share with you all was on M&S maternity bras. I won't horrify you all by posting a photo of my ginormous mama-booblies in their brand spanking new undercrackers, but I will tell you that if you get measured in-store this summer (and please note you need to pre-book an appointment in most branches) then you get a £5 off voucher when you spend £30 or more on lingerie. And let's face it - that's easily done.

I treated myself to four new t-shirt bras, which are on special offer at the moment (20% off) and with the £5 voucher it meant that each one only cost me £5.15! T-shirt bras are ideal to wear during pregnancy as there is no underwire to make you feel uncomfortable but there is still some padding to give you extra support which, if you've got big knockers like me, is essential when they're even bigger than normal and bloody ache too! (I'm not going anywhere near the revolting saggy maternity bras I managed to buy when I was pregnant with Daisy!!). I'm still on the look out for some hot mama lingerie, so if anyone can recommend any shops/companies, please get in touch.

Happy sales shopping all xoxox


  1. wow I can't believe you got all of that for £50! Well done. I love the H&M Bump range, hopefully I'll get a chance to buy some for myself one day lol.

    Good deal on the M&S vouchers too!

    1. It's fab when you get lots of bargains.... although it doesn't happen very often! :)

  2. Loving the stripey primark dress, what a find! I've got 6 weeks to go so looking for cheap maternity bargains that I can squeeze myself into.

    1. Get yourself to Primark right away! They had different colours too - coral and white stripe, and green and white. Then do a sun dance!! I hope summer arrives soon x
