Buying Everything Two Sizes Big
Most women automatically think that they need to buy maternity clothing in a size or two that is bigger than your usual size. They believe that with your baby bump growing you will need much bigger clothing.

If you buy sizes that are big for you, it will make you look bigger than you usually are and it will hang off on areas like your arms, shoulders and back making you look sloppy.
Buying Clothing in Synthetic Fabrics
