My Go-To Petite & Maternity-Friendly Brand

Abercrombie & Fitch stripe ruffle sleeve dress

As if I haven’t talked about Abercrombie & Fitch enough, today’s blog post is all about the revived brand. I started wearing A&F again last spring and was super excited about the rebrand and new direction. Classic basics in neutral colors, sign me up! With that being said, I didn’t discover their petite selection until recently. I don’t think I paid close enough attention and whenever I did see petite options, they were sold out. Since being pregnant, I’ve struggled to find things to wear, so I think I’ve really done my due diligence when it comes to shopping. I spend way more thinking about each purchase because I don’t know if it will fit or look good, plus I want to make sure I can wear it post-pregnancy. So yes, I’ve spent way too much time on the A&F website, lol. But, I’ve found so many great petite and maternity-friendly pieces.

Take this dress for instance. Classic stripe tee shirt dress with an updated ruffle sleeve. Honestly, I was shocked to see the petite length work so well on me. And if you can’t tell, it’s super comfortable! It would be flattering on anymore, pregnant or not. I’ve also been living in this stripe dress (have it in gray too). Not only will I live in these until I can’t wear them anymore (due to cooler weather), but I love that I’ll be able to wear them post-pregnancy. The sale price can’t be beat, too! If you read Wednesday’s post, you know I’ve also been wearing A&F’s petite ankle jeans as well. I’m telling you guys, A&F is killing it when it comes to basics and petite-friendly sizes. I’m kind of obsessed right now. If you’re petite and/or pregnant, I would highly suggest checking out A&F’s website. There’s so many great sale pieces, but their fall collection is awesome as well. I have my eye on this button down shirt, this vest, and this dress.
