Maternity Clothes Length
The white shirt and the turquoise shirt are 2 I have complained about in the past. I also have 2 other shirts that are shorter than that. The black and gray striped shirt is one that I have and really enjoy the length. It could be 2 inches shorter and still work. Granted it's a "tunic" but it's not quite long enough for me to be comfortable wearing leggings with it.
My belly is a lot bigger now but 2-3 months ago the white shirt was already too short. I bought 5 shirts without seeing them from someone on facebook. They were only $2 or $3 but in the end ended up not being worth it because they were too short. I wore them to sleep in for awhile but didn't really like moving or turning over and having skin exposed. Back in August when they were entirely too big around, they were almost long enough but looked silly because they were too loose. Actually based on going through my pictures, I haven't even slept in these shirts since early August and I was barely showing then. At that time half the clothes I was wearing weren't even maternity.
I know I've heard a lot of people over the years complain that maternity shirts are so long at first and then later they realize they need that length. I never even thought they were too long early on. Maybe only 1 shirt that I bought on clearance and bought it too big did I think it was too long for a bit. (Shirt on August 17 if you are curious.)
Did you have issues with shirts being too long or too short? Where was your favorite place to buy maternity clothes?
