American Apparel Does Maternity. (Sort Of.)

May 19, 2009

When I first got pregnant this time around, I thought "Oh cool, I'll do a post about outfitting yourself your whole pregnancy long exclusively from American Apparel!" (Which is pretty much what I did with the other two.) It's great....the clothes are comfortable, don't look "maternity," they are totally affordable, and you can wear them after you have little bambino. Trust me. You'll need the stretch. And I don't know about you, but I HATE Pea in the Pod. Ridiculously overpriced and generally lame clothes.

But someone much cuter than I, and with a husband that take fantastic photos beat me to the punch. The nerve. Take a look at these great belly shots and cute outfits from American Apparel. Check out this cute family and great blog at Pacing the Panic Room.

  3. I wish I'd known about this a long time ago. SOOO much cuter than Baby Gap and Old Navy. Was that an AA ensemble you were wearing last Thursday? Very cute!

  4. I am glad you like the photo series :) Any recommendations for the final few weeks. It looks like she might just live in some of their loose T-shirts. Thanks for linking back to my place.

  6. I agree! Pea in the Pod is soooo depressing. I'm going to keep AA in mind for the future...
    I found cute shirts and skirts by Three Dots on sale at various dept stores (bloomies etc.) and they were very comfortable, especially towards the end.

  7. I've been following this guy's wife on his blog for about two months or so. She rocks those outfits; so cute! Your bump looks adorable by the way. All bump, nothing else! Wish I had known about AA about 2 years ago. Do you shop online or is there a store near you? We don't have any here in NC.

  10. I'll try to be as tactful as I can here...but am I the only one who is not into this photo series? I guess I am.

  12. With my second child I was desperate and didn't care. I probably spent way more than I should have on maternity clothes. The AA stuff is so cute I don't know why I didn't think of that.

  14. What a wonderful blog!! I'm so happy I followed Joslyn's link!

    I'm at 20 weeks -- with twins! -- and absolutely must check out the AA clothes. I love how non-maternity they look.

  16. jora, please - she is adorable (i posted about just how adorable i think she is a while back. had to throw that out there to give my claim that i do in fact think she's a doll some legitimacy) but the last time i checked you were pretty darn cute yourself!
