Welcome back to Style Your Bump with Lindsay! My tips for Styling your bump are still very much in evidence, I have just focused a little more on finding the most affordable maternity fashion in South Africa at the moment. I decided to focus on a single store this time, because what pregnant mommy wants to be rushing from store to store trying on clothing?! Let’s have a look at what local retailer Mr Price has to offer.
I’m a bargain hunter. If there is a place I can pay less for something, you can guarantee I will find it. When it comes to having a new baby and all the added expenses that brings, we have to look at getting the most value out of an item. With each pregnancy, there isn’t much room for a new wardrobe – some of the items I wore whilst pregnant with my first 8 years ago, I wore with my second 3 years ago. There are always certain investments pieces your should own (this includes maternity wear) and then to keep with the times, we look to our budget-friendly stores for inspiration and affordable maternity fashion.
It isn’t news that I’ve been shopping up a storm at Mr Price since forever. Their items are reasonably priced and tend to stick to what’s hot and not in the fashion world. In keeping with the budget-friendly theme, I thought I’d task myself with finding affordable maternity fashion that can be used both pre- and post-pregnancy.
