Day 3 - Stylish, Sexy, Pregnant Mama - on a budget

Don't forget what's underneath!

We all know how important it is to wear the correct underwear. Our undergarments help that perfect outfit look just right. But do you really need to fork out your hard earned money for special and "large" maternity underwear? The answer is yes and no! Keep reading below to see why...

Do you really need maternity panties? By the end of the first trimester, your panties may begin to feel too tight. Once they start to feel snug it's time to think about alternatives! Maternity panties are often unattractive and expensive in the local maternity boutiques, but don't worry, maternity underwear has come a long way and there are several stylish and low cost options.
  • Purchase non maternity underwear in a larger size. You'll probably be able to buy several pairs of regular underwear for the price of one maternity pair! Make sure you buy an underbelly style or a style that can be worn low below your belly.
  • Check out Old Navy Maternity! They have an Intimates collection within their maternity department both online and in many stores. Their sales are amazing and I loved the 3 packs of low rise maternity thongs!
  • Don't forget about Motherhood. Motherhood has a huge selection of Maternity Panties. 3 packs can be found on sale for as low as $4.99 with most at about $9.99.

But I want to feel and look sexy! No problem. It's important to keep your personal style during pregnancy. Looking and feeling sexy is more important than ever when you may be feeling unattractive and frumpy. PassionSpice offers some stylish and comfortable maternity underwear. I especially love their Meg Bikini. and Mira Thong. Both styles are affordable too! Eve Alexander also offers a complete selection of sexy and mom approved maternity bikini's and thongs.

Remember, you don't have to spend a fortune on stylish, comfortable maternity underwear. I know you fashion forward moms have discovered many other affordable underwear options so please post your tips to share with your fellow Stylish, Sexy, Pregnant Moms. Remember, when you comment you're entered to win a Belly Bandit.
