Did I mention DENIM? Check out this great opportunity for your gently worn denim:
The Village Shopping Center in Corte Madera will be sponsoring a three week Great Denim Drive to collect gently-worn denim items such as jeans, jackets or denim accessories. All items will be donated to the Ritter Center in San Rafael , a Marin multi-service agency that supports self-sufficiency for low-income families. Denim recepticle containers will be clearly marked and located throughout the center and at the Concierge.
- July 27 through August 13, 2009

Maternity jeans go from under belly waist band, to at waist belly panel, to full pants over belly. Wide bands, adjustable waists, ties keep the pants in place for a no-worry fit that looks great. Elastic is your friend! Most maternity tops have some stretch to them so you can wear them over a couple of lbs/weeks, maybe even months.
When you first try on, start with the size you were pre-pregnancy. As time flies your belly grows, well, some of us we grow all over ;-) You're bound to gain weight and your body changes shape in places you never noticed before. Don't force yourself into anything or you'll be grouchy from being uncomfortable. Come in to the store and try new styles, new sizes, different brands so that what you wear is not something to worry about. Are you a Dress Girl or prefer yoga pants? There isn't a piece that has not been adapted for maternity so keep to your comfort zone or step out and try something new.
If our store had been around when I was pregnant I would have had a much larger maternity wardrobe! I didn't want to spend a lot on clothing that I wasn't going to wear for very long and I gained different amounts of weight (in different places) each time (three). I am loving the yoga pants and tanks in-store right now; that would have been my wardrobe for the summer pregnancies, even the cute skirts. I worked during my first pregnancy and our selection of khaki and black pants, dressy tops would have carried me through. And don't forget a swimsuit! The pool was heavenly to float in. Whether you choose to bare the belly in a bikini or cover with a swing style top and shorts you'll be glad you made it into the water (trust me!)
Come take advantage of the new to gently worn maternity clothing on consignment with us and flatter that figure!
