A Sweet Review from SweetPea Maternity & a giveaway!

When I was pregnant with James, I was able to get away with wearing my pre pregnancy clothing till I was about 6 months along - but this time around I was in maternity clothing by week 9!

I still had a few maternity clothing items that I was able to fit in, but I didn't have a lot. Plus I was off on seasons.

Now maternity clothing is NOT cheap. I choke every time I go to look at clothing as I know it's going to cost me a pretty penny to get clothes that will last through my entire pregnancy. Believe me, I need clothes MADE for pregnancy - nothing fits properly any more. I mean it!

On my search for more affordable trendy maternity clothing I came across SweetPea Maternity!

SweetPea Maternity offers trendy maternity clothing for affordable prices - and I mean they are very affordable. They have a HUGE selection to choose from. Pants, tees, tanks, dresses etc. There is something there for every pregnant woman.

I contacted them to see if I could do a review for them. They were more than happy to send me an item from their selection to review. It was SO hard to choose. I mean really really hard to choose, but in the end, I knew I had to get a dress. With summer approaching (well in BC - we don't exactly know where summer is at the moment) I thought it would be nice to be able to be free in a dress. Plus I have 2 summer weddings! 

Please excuse my lack of makeup. It was hot outside! 

I chose the Mint Green Floral Maternity dress.Which is on sale right now for $18.99!! (reg. price is $31.99)

The dress I chose, is 100% cotton (which will be able to breath in the heat) It has a cute lace detail at the top and hits me (at 5'9") at about the calf. The length is perfect for me as I'm not a short dress kinda gal. You can pair this with a cute pair of wedges or flat sandles. I also wore a light cardigan with it when it got chilly out. I LOVE the print. I mean I really really love the print. So romantic and dreamy. The lace detail adds that perfect touch.

I washed it and nothing bled and it held up really well. I didn't put it in the dryer as the cotton seems delicate.

I do have to say that the fit at the top wasn't so flattering, in my honest opinion. I do not have a huge chest, but if I were to wear a bra (which I do like to do) I get a uni boob, and some gaping. But it's not that big of a deal. I can still wear it with no bra and it's does look better. The seams seemed slightly off but nothing that was very noticeable. Can you tell I really went over this dress with a fine toothed comb?

I plan on wearing this bad boy to a wedding we are going to in August. Perfect for my ever growing baby bump!

Like I said before there is a lot to choose from - and inventory changes regularly so if you are on the fence about an item I suggest picking it up cause you never know when it;s going to go. I highly recommend looking through what they have. With the prices they have, they can't be beat. They offer so much and for items you are really only going to wear for a shirt while it's the best way to add to your maternity clothes stash and not break the bank!
Check out SweetPea Maternity - their shipping is reasonable and the selection is great! Right now they are having a Summer Savings! 20% off store wide!
