Retailers are still doing open, loose cardigans and pullover loose tops which look like maternity tops and tenks (tent + tank, thank you again ABC). While browsing F21, I thought I’d highlight some possible maternity items. Just to be clear, I’ve never been pregnant so I’m guessing what will work or not. My friend wore all regular clothing thru her 1st pregnancy, just sizing up from small to large. I hear that w/baby #1 it takes awhile to show, like 6 months so I figure many of you in that group will definitely be able to wear some of these. And you can’t beat the prices.
Sera Rhinestone Trim Top – I can’t get a read on whether the rhinestones on this look cheap or not. It would be a great top for dressing up without spending a bunch of money for something you might wear once or twice.
Butterfly top – Rayon, hand wash cold, lay flat to dry. While I was looking around, I noticed way too many tops with hand wash as part of the instructions. I don’t mind hanging to dry, but hand washing is not so exciting. I tend to put them in on a gentle cycle in a lingerie bag and take my chances.
V-Neck Flutter Sleeve Top – 100% silk, comes in 3 colors
Portland peasant top – The chest on the small is listed at 28″ which seems kinda small. Only larger sizes are left so that might work for a smaller person. 100% Rayon; Hand Wash Cold, Tumble Dry Low
Tie back cardigan – Very cute. Although if you’re feeling big you’re not gonna like this if it makes you feel even more plump.
Drawstring Slub Cardigan – I have this. It’s very lightweight, so I won’t be wearing it until spring. And no, I’m not expecting. I like my share of flowing, comfortable pieces.
Front Drape Cardigan – Me loveth. I own it and cannot find it! I have my clothes in a bunch of different places in our bedroom and some in other places in the house. Definitely a sign that I need to sell, consign & giveaway. You can machine wash & hang this one to dry. They call this color taupe but it is off-white in person. It also comes in heather grey.
Draped Pocket Knit Cardigan – Only $15.80
Pleated shawl cardigan – You can wash & low tumble dry this one.
Open front knitted cardigan – 100% cotton, machine wash cold
Contrast Trim Sweater Cardigan – This is so cute. It comes in 3 colors. The description says the chest is 44″ on the small.
Long sleeve wrap cardigan – Only $20
