I have to admit something to you.
I purchased most of my maternity clothes at Target. I took a few trips to Pea in a Pod and Motherhood but their maternity clothes was so overpriced for the poor quality they offered that I didn't see the point of spending so much money.
But you want/need to look beautiful at your baby shower so I took to the internet (my faithful companion) to help me find something fabulous for me to wear.
Enter Isabella Oliver. I had seen one of their ads in Pregnancy magazine of a beautiful pregnant woman wearing a wrap tube top. I thought to myself "I want to look like that!"
Most recently, celebrities like Gwen Stefani, Alyson Hannigan (How I Met Your Mother, Buffy The Vampire Slayer), Angelina Jolie, and Kelly Rutherford (Gossip Girl) have worn Isabella Oliver's maternity clothes.
I ended up getting 2 tops from them, since I was having 2 baby showers. What I liked most was the possibility of wearing the tops AFTER I had the baby. I was a little nervous about ordering maternity clothes online (being shipped from the UK) but the offer free shipping on orders of $89 or more, their sizing chart was very accurate and I was able to speak with a customer rep within minutes.
I took a HUGE leap of faith and it was TOTALY worth it. I looked beautiful at my baby showers and last weekend I actually wore one of the tops to a birthday party (and I already lost my 40+ lbs. of baby weight)!
And did I mention they don't just sell maternity clothes?
