Me too :-(

I have had good luck getting cute stuff for cheap on eBay. Otherwise, I have bought from Gap, Old Navy, Motherhood Maternity and Target. I refuse to spend a lot of money on maternity clothes so I have never bought from any of the boutiques or pricey stores.

I usually get a few good staple pieces and then fill in my wardrobe with stuff I can make multiple outfits from. A good pair of jeans (I love gap maternity jeans), a few ribbed tanks for layering, and some shirts/cardigans. I also made some maxi skirts and dresses for this summer which was easy and cheap.

I've done a fair amount of altering things I get from the thrift store. I am pretty picky, though, so if I don't love it (or feel like I can improve it so I love it), I leave it there. IME, it takes time and patience to find anything worthwhile at a second-hand store.

h&m has cute things, but only sells out of the store...you might try ebay since you wear a smaller size.

also pea in a pod has really higher end things, i loved the swimsuits i saw in there recently.

there's some ok stuff at target, if you shop correctly and gap i love, tho i am larger/taller so i fit in their stuff pretty well.

Can ON yoga skirts double as maternity ones? Bc they aren't selling the maternity ones right now. I just wasn't like 2 skirts and that with my regular yoga pants should get me through the winter.

I bet if you buy up a size you can! I wet to Burlington coat factory today; they're having a big clearance. I got two non-maternity maxi dresses I'm hoping will grow with me for awhile and a maternity sweater, all for $30. Not too bad I don't think!

Re: Where are you buying your CUTE maternity clothes?

I never wear maternity, even with the twins. I look for pieces with empire waists in regular stores. I am picky about quality and fit and find maternity never gets it done for me. I have worn several things from J Jill and SOMA this pregnancy and I love them. Found some cute maxi dresses in the juniors department at Target too that I really like and were super cheap.
