Good idea about the need for slightly bigger clothes for maternity and post baby................BUT don't do what I did and then continue to fill those bigger clothes post baby!!!
I did a massive clear out last week of my wardrobe.........everything from a size 26 to a size 18 is GONE. I gave some to a friend who is losing weight (she is moving into a size 20) and the rest have all gone to the Salvos.
(I was tempted to list them on Ebay, but who I am kidding........I barely have time to brush my teeth at the moment, let alone list on Ebay, LOL!)
So I am looking in my wardrobe knowing that the very few things I do have do actually fit and flatter me. There is not much (ie only 1 pair of jeans, 2 pairs of shorts and about 5 tops and one frock) BUT hell, I do so much laundry every day for the kids, I'll just have to keep up for my own clothes.
I have kept two "corporate wear" suits (size 22) which I am taking to a dressmaker tomorrow to get her advice on having them altered........they were exy at the time, and I like them a lot, so I will see how much it costs.......
And then come April, I am off for a huge shopping spreeeeeeee!
