More Preggo-Friendly Tops

A few more items:

Deletta's Flower Vendor Top, $78.00 stunned me into silence at first.

I loved this rosette detail at the right shoulder. In combination with the cowlneck, it struck me as elegant and unique.

Not crazy about cap sleeves in general, however.

Ah, if only. The worst part about this top is that it is undergirded with a silky camisole. Sounds like a good idea, but the spaghetti straps twist and turn and become very unwieldy when put on and taken off. It was all atangle. I reluctantly handed it back to the SA because I knew I couldn't deal with the chaos.

Also, it was an acrylic and wool blend which would explain the itchiness. Dang it.

Love, love, L-O-V-E the Lady's Choice Cardigan, $88. It's the gathered neck, the elegantly puckered shoulders, the lovely colors. It really is ladylike and flows very nicely. Probably should have tried the XS instead of the S.

Will definitely need to sale stalk this one.


  1. Shelia! I'm so late here, but CONGRATULATIONS!! This is such an exciting time for you and I wish you all the best! You look great and I'm glad to see you feeling better :)

  2. That top is great and you can wear it after your baby is born even! Congrats, btw. Your baby bump is sooo cute! You look great and good luck with the rest of your pregnancy.

  3. Congratulations! Isn't it amazing to know that in just a few short months (okay well, i'll be honest... the third trimester always drags) you'll be holding your sweet bundle in your arms? :) From experience, I know it is totally possible to wear all non-maternity clothes throughout an entire pregnancy. I think you're definitely off to a good start here! One thing you will want though, are tops that are long enough and stretchy enough to cover the belly all the way through to the end. I would highly suggest trying the Embracable tee. The length and the rib knit will take you VERY far, if not all the way. And possibly the Melting Cowlneck and He'penny Cardi too.

    You look so beautiful :)

  4. Congrats Shelia! You look fantastic! These reviews are really helpful for me because I'm trying to have another baby, so, hopefully, I will need pregnancy friendly clothes real soon!

  5. erin--thanks! it is great to be feeling better.
    cindi--isn't it great that it can be worn now and aft?

    bonnie--glad to hear it! we knocked-up gals need to stick together.

    girls--you are all so kind. thanks so much for your sweet encouragement.

  6. Hi! It's so great you found some tops that fit so nicely! You look cute in all those tops you've tried! I was wondering, how far along are you? Your belly is really showing and it's so cute! I'm also expecting, and I'm 16W. Congratulations on your pregnancy!
