What size do you need for your maternity wardrobe

One thing for sure your matenity wardrobe will grow just as your baby grows.  When deciding what to buy know that your size may change as your pregancy progresses.  You may go up 1 or sometimes 2 sizes by the end.  This is NORMAL. 

What size am I?  Knowing what your measurements are is the best start to getting the correct size.  Bust and Hips measurements will give you general sizing in Small, Medium, etc.   Know your Inseam - the measurement from the crotch to the bottom of the ankle - allows you to choose the correct length for pants, jeans, capris and shorts.  Don't have someone to help you measure yourself, then measure pants thet you alread have that fit you perfectly.  Knowing what these measurements are will help you target the correct size faster.  There are many size charts across the internet by brand and are very easy to google.  One of the best size charts is at A Pea in the Pod.   Not only will knowing your measurements help when visiting the physical store, but is necessary when buying online. 

When looking for Maternity Clothes online, be sure to check the measuremnets that are listed.  This will avoid having to send clothes back that do not fit.  Below is an example of Maternity Jeans with Measurements included.  Be sure to know your measurements for smooth shopping and enjoy all of the changes that are happening in your life.
