Pregnant Tiffany Thornton is sounding off about maternity clothes in her latest guest blog for Celebrity Baby Scoop.
Tiffany Thornton, who is expecting a baby boy who she and her husband Christopher Carney have named KJ this summer, wrote about her challenges when it comes to finding comfortable and affordable maternity clothes (I sense a Tiffany Thornton maternity line coming out in the future ).

She wrote: Why does it seem the maternity stores in the mall are all so pricey? I have been to a few and have, of course, liked the clothes but I just don’t think I want to spend hundreds of dollars on clothes I will only be wearing when I’m pregnant.
I bought two pairs of maternity jeans at the beginning of my pregnancy, wore them once and swore I’d never wear them again. Not having a button and zipper works against me and the pants end up feeling like they are sliding down all day long. I decided I would just buy regular jeans a few sizes bigger than I normally wear and not button them. All I have to do is buy a long tank top and pull it down over the button and zipper and no one can even tell. That way after my pregnancy is over I can have the jeans taken in and still wear them after pregnancy when I get back in shape.
I did find a very comfortable pair of maternity shorts at Target. I tried on tons of maternity shorts at the more expensive stores and didn’t find any that I liked and was surprised that the ones at Target were my fav! Target carries the Liz Lange maternity line and the long summer dresses are super comfortable.
All in all, I was happy to find that I didn’t have to spend a ton of money at the maternity stores and was more satisfied with the clothes I found at Target and the innovative ways I found to get clothes I would actually wear again. Best of luck with your maternity shopping adventures and don’t forget to check out the Liz Lange line at Target.
