This is not what I planned to blog about today, but the email request for a site review caught my eye. I’m a big believer in just making due when it comes to maternity clothes, but if I were the sort to buy new clothes, I have to admit that I would be sorely tempted by what I saw at Appleseed Maternity.
The prices were initially shocking to my thrift-store senses, but I’ve been inside brick and mortar maternity shops, so I knew what to expect. Based on what I’ve seen, these prices were no worse, and probably better. Dresses – nice, formal dresses – were generally $128. The tops were beautiful and graceful, and while I did see the expected amount of cleavage there were also plenty of modest choices. If I were pregnant I might be tempted to pay full price just to have something I really loved for those last awkward weeks.
They also have the Bella Band at the standard price, which I’ve been longing to try for years now. I hear that it’s good all the way from early to late pregnancy, and after you have the baby it provides belly coverage when you hike up your shirt to nurse. If you’ve tried the Bella Band, I would love to hear what you thought. Please mention whether you bought the original or a cheaper version, because I’ve wondered if there is a difference.
Oh, and they also have my favorite-ever-don’t-know-how-I-lived-without-it baby carrier, the Ergo, at a very competitive price. You won’t find one used, because nobody ever gets rid of them. If you’ve ever considered buying an Ergo but hesitated at the price, just let me whisper two words of advice in your ear: BUY IT!
