Maternity wear in Osaka, Japan
The second time I was pregnant in Japan I felt like I started showing much sooner, or perhaps because I was starting to show in summer (when clothes are a bit more revealing), I began to wear proper `maternity clothes` sooner too.
I also kept wearing my maxi skirts, so didn`t have to buy much more until the cooler weather hit! In Autumn, I bought a couple of long sleeved tops and some maternity tights/leggings on sale at H and M, some supportive maternity underwear from Wacoal and Nishimatsuya, and a cute long sleeved sweatshirt on Etsy (here).
I`ve been wearing my long cardigans (coat-igans?) from last season too, which look great with the bump!
Some other places to buy maternity clothes in Osaka (and perhaps in other parts of Japan are listed below), happy shopping!
CHEAP (good for basics)
* H and M - the Shinsaibashi store stocks maternity wear, and you can buy it online.
* Sweet Mommmy - although I haven`t used this site, I have seen some recommendations online (and they have an English website!)
