Can personally verify this skirt is very spinny and fits well
Acquired myself a birth year (1984) 5513 sub. Absolute grail watch for me and I’m over the moon with it. Has a pretty wild spider dial that shows up in certain light. I know this is kind of the most basic watch you can own but they are classic for a reason. I’m excited to add all of my own scratches and dents to it as it puts a lot of hours on the wrist.
I was a bit worried that the spider dial would be really obnoxious but honestly you almost never see it and it just flashes for a split second under certain light conditions which is really interesting. Most people prefer the “tool” look of the matte maxi dials but I really love this transition into the glossy dial with the white gold indexes.
My other watch is an old Speedmaster MKII which feels like such a monster compared to this. Slowly getting used to not having to wind my watch every day as well, will need to find something else to fidget with when wearing this one.
Got this from the amazing folks at Craft & Tailored in LA. Amazing guys and amazing watches and service!

Edit #2: Someone pointed out that the strap is from a timex weekender. That is correct. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004VR9HP2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_CICtCbARFPZTM
Description: The best value watch available in my opinion. Looks pretty good, lasts a long time, water resistant to 30 feet. Can't beat for a beater watch or just an everyday sorta thing
This is the shirt https://api-shein.shein.com/h5/sharejump/appsharejump?currency=USD&lan=en&id=729770&share_type=goods&site=andshus
Here is the skirt. It's a MUST HAVE. Urban CoCo Women's Basic... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B014FA0NB6?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
Here you go! It's literally the first thing that comes up when you search "skirt" so I'm guessing that is why a lot of us get it
I just graduated from high school and I wanted to get myself a small watch reminiscent of those generic clocks they have in all the classrooms. The Timex Easy Reader was the cheapest and classiest looking option.
It's exactly as the name describes, an easy reader. The dial is a very light silver which I'd rather be plain white but oh well. Day-date is a nice touch. Indiglo is also nice. It's just a nice little 35 mm watch. I also put a new strap on it if anybody was wondering.
A cheap Timex that I got on Amazon. Based on my hourly billing rate, I take shits that cost more than my watch.
Like this fold over folio type that zips up?. It's a $20 Amazon watch case. Cheap but effective. There is even a divider panel that goes between the bands so no scratching. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B002CVUODS/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1
The real pro tip. I have small wrists and if I bought any old men's watch I saw, it would typically be ginormous on me. My forearms are beefier these days after years of deadlifting, but my wrists have stayed the same. Slim watches are the way to go. My everyday watch is the Timex Easy Reader and it's 35mm. For a dress watch I would go even more minimal, or wear none at all. Something like this is similar to what I have, which is a black leather Bulova watch. Amazon has a lot of watches and you can filter by case diameter in search.
Can't recommend the Simple Wishes pumping bra enough. I just pull up my shirt, unclip or pull down whatever I have on as a bra or undershirt, and zip the bra on. It takes like ten seconds and allows me to get a ton of work done while pumping. It's around $30 and has held up really well for me. They sell the same one at Target (branded as Lansinoh) but it doesn't come with the extra extender thing included like the Amazon one does.
When my SIL had her baby a month after I had mine, she unexpectedly had to start exclusively pumping her first week PP, and I bent over backwards to deliver her one of these bras the day she started. That's how essential it is to me! She bought a second one the next day.
Aside from pumping bras, you could also consider Pumpin' Pals. They allow you to lean back when you're pumping instead of having to awkwardly hunch forward. I haven't tried them myself but I've heard good things.
I would HIGHLY recommend this one: Medela Pump In Style Advanced Breast Pump with On-The-Go Tote
The tote looks just like any bag, the pump stays right in the side of the bag all the time, super convenient. Enough room in the bag for extra batteries, the plug, lots of bottles, tops, cleaning supplies etc.
I used this with two kids, and I took it to a law firm constantly where I work and no one ever had any idea it was my pump. It also comes with a little cooler and ice pack for the bottles you pump, which is also discreet and can go right into the fridge.
Here is the link to it at Target, but you can get it anywhere: https://www.target.com/p/medela-pump-in-style-advanced-breast-pump-with-on-the-go-tote/-/A-10762141?ref=tgt_adv_XS000000&AFID=google_pla_df&CPNG=PLA_Baby+Shopping&adgroup=SC_Baby&LID=700000001170770pgs&network=g&device=c&am...
I also bought a pumping bra on amazon, which held both of the pumps up to my breasts making the whole thing hands free and able to pump both sides at once. Completely necessary, a lifesaver.
It looked something like this: https://www.amazon.com/Simple-Wishes-Signature-Pumping-XS-Large/dp/B00295MQLU/ref=sr_1_3_a_it?ie=UTF8&qid=1516809760&sr=8-3&keywords=pumping+bra
Haha yeah it's $18 on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000LAKYW8/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_zr6QCbSX5ZY4A.
Sweet of you to offer to buy it for me. I'll just ask my wife to get it for me for Father's day or something haha
You can never go wrong with a Timex Weekender or EasyReader. Those two are the most recommended on here, and you can probably find them cheap on Amazon. However, you would probably have better and more in-depth advice over at /r/watches.
I bought this Optima Band Organizer off Amazon after another poster on here showed theirs off. At first I thought I had just enough bands to fill it, when I realized that it had a whole other side hidden behind a separator panel!
Timex Weekender is a great, inexpensive watch. I'm afraid you overpaid, especially for used. Brand new on Amazon is just over $30
Quartz movements are actually extremely accurate (more so than automatic)
If that doesn't work, it's Urban CoCo Women's Basic Versatile Stretchy Flared Casual Mini Skater Skirt
I'm eyeballing a $30 Timex on Amazon. I'm not a huge watch guy. Can I replace the straps on it if I want to later on down the line?
This is the one in question
Timex Unisex T2N651 Weekender Olive Nylon Slip-Thru Strap Watch https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004VR9HP2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_NHMyBb0AD4AE4
I got this one off Amazon. I'm up walking 3-5 miles a day for work, and it's helped a ton. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0113WE0QS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glt_fabc_JCRTWCAHJMJCWGQ6B6CN?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
🙋 I'm a year out (tomorrow!) and my boobs started about the same size as yours. There was no whipping out that was gonna happen with these ladies. I've really liked these bras from Amazon:
Women's Full Cup Lightly Padded Wirefree Maternity Breastfeeding Nursing Bra Size L, 3PCS/Pack(Pink-Black-Beige) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01EFNPD7W?ref=yo_pop_ma_swf
You can leave the padding in for some more coverage or take it out for more flexibility in pulling the cup down. I've been wearing the same set of 3 since I was pregnant and they're holding up well.
Nursing tanks were also great especially in the beginning. Target has some decent ones, but I didn't love them, they were cut a bit narrow at the top for me. Nobody really wants nursing boob side boob lol.
I also experimented with the one up one down method. Basically you layer a tank under your shirt. Shirt goes up, tank goes down. You can make it a one stop shop with a nursing tank or just use a loose cami that can slide down or even just live under your boobs. This way your stomach is covered. Baby's head will cover most of the exposed boob as well.
My babe was born in June in the south so it was super hot to be wearing two shirts all the time. Most often, I would use a cover or a muslin and just hike my shirt up, unclip my bra and be half naked under the cover.
I got this one from Amazon and I’ve been loving it!!
AZMED Maternity Belt, Breathable Abdominal Binder, Back Support, One Size, Beige https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0113WE0QS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_.nf1Cb21J1YVQ
I would have thought something with black text on a white face, and big Arabic numerals. A Timex Easy Reader for instance.
I have these and I really like them. I'm 6 feet tall and they're supposedly 30 inches before stretching. They go far above my knees, which is much better then the other kind I got (a pack of 4 that barely went to my knees). Hope this helps
Spectra and Medela pumps are both pretty reliable. There’s one called Willow that is a wearable pump but otherwise people often buy a hands-free pumping bra separately (this was the best one that I used). Freezer bags are sold separately as well and doesn’t matter which brand, doesn’t have to be the same brand as your pump
I bought them off of Amazon. They were cheap and comfy as my boobs grew bigger and bigger.
I’m two months PP now and I’m starting to get my milk supply back (baby in the NICU, pumping sucks) and I had to buy more bras in a bigger size. I didn’t wanna spend a lot of money on bras yet since my boobs just have not stopped growing.
Here’s the bras I got:
HOFISH 3PACK Full Bust Seamless Nursing Maternity Bras Bralette S-XXL with Extra Bra Extenders & Clips https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01EFNPD7W/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_18K466R19X99F131DRAZ
Here’s the one in the video. I’d recommend black because it helps hide stuff and it goes with everything
Urban CoCo Women's Basic Versatile Stretchy Flared Casual Mini Skater Skirt https://www.amazon.com/dp/B014FA0NB6/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_3Y4AWJJBBGBVEP6ZSMZK?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
This is another one I wanna get. It’s a little longer and has ✨Pockets✨
Belle Poque Women's High Waist A-Line Pockets Skirt Skater Flared Midi Skirt https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07P2N49S8/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_145VZWQCDAYEKE9X8TR0?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
I am 36.5 weeks and also have a herniation in the same spot.
Buy yourself THIS maternity belt (highly reviewed on amazon). You'll thank yourself as you get bigger. I wear it every day and if I ever forget I can tell immediately in the difference in pain. Before my bump was super big I just wore it when doing a lot of walking/standing, now I wear it all the time.
I have been going to physical therapy throughout the pregnancy and that has helped a lot. My therapist is actually a prenatal/pelvic floor PT specialist, too. I have pregnancy approved excercises that I do to strengthen my back and hip muscles, which help a lot but don't get me wrong - you're in for some pain and discomfort that will likely be worse than the average pregnant person's because of your situation. My physical therapist also recommended I get this Sacroiliac joint belt as because of my herniation my pelvis is misaligned (or maybe my pelvis misaligned caused my herniation, who knows) and therefore she said I was at extra risk for SPD. Lo and behold, I started getting SPD symptoms as early as 11 weeks!
So now, I wear the SI joint belt and the maternity belly brace daily. Before the past month or so, I just wore them when I was walking/standing a lot (my husband and I refer to the combo as my 'sausage casing,' it's hilarious).
If you go month to month, it costs $30. I think you'd get a much, much better bang for your buck buying a Timex Weekender on Amazon:
If that's not your style, and you're really, truly not sure what you want, doing watchgang for a single month is probably not the very worst thing in the world. You definitely won't be getting a $30 watch. In honesty, I would be quite surprised if you got a $10 watch.
But if you're ok with the fact that you're paying a fee to someone to send you a random watch they sourced for as cheap as they possibly could as a way of helping to refine your style, then that's cool. There's worse uses of money out there.
I bought this on from Amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002CVUODS/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
It's quite good especially for travelling. Which country are you in that Amazon doesn't ship to? You should be able to use a forwarder without any hassle, someone like myus.
My fav bras right now are nursing bras I bought on Amazon. They are super supportive.
Women's Full Cup Lightly Padded Wirefree Maternity Breastfeeding Nursing Bra Size L, 3PCS/Pack(Pink-Black-Beige) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01EFNPD7W/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_.Tm1Cb68QXZCX
I actually mean something like this (link below) which is used for holding the pump flanges in place while you pump.
Flanges are typical on the more traditional breast pumps that insurances cover. I personally used a spectra and highly recommend it. I've heard mixed reviews on the willow/elvie and they're unfortunately not often covered by insurance.
Yes, they're mine. Although be careful about putting the curse of binding on them. I've started wearing them more often because they're actually quite comfortable but the curse has made it a little annoying to go out in public and take baths with.
Happy thigh-highing :)
Here’s the link ^ ^ it’s on Amazon
Urban CoCo Women's Basic Versatile Stretchy Flared Casual Mini Skater Skirt https://www.amazon.com/dp/B014FA0NB6/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_1E972DWW8126QKZSFGN2?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
I started seeing a chiropractor who specializes in prenatal care and it was the first thing she told me to get when I started seeing her at 26 weeks. This was the specific belt she had me get: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0113WE0QS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_fabc_BV55R1VP215C6M0C1KDP?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
TBH I use it mostly when I’m working from home but she advised wearing it as much as possible. It’s fairly thin so you could easily wear it underneath clothes. The other thing she said that’s important is the placement. The belt should be low (not high on your belly). She said how the model is wearing it in the product photo is wrong, it should be lower. Hope that helps!
https://www.amazon.com/AZMED-Maternity-Breathable-Abdominal-Support/dp/B0113WE0QS this is what I’ve been using since week 15. I’m showing but it’s not huge. I’m 5’5” about 135 pounds at this point I guess (haven’t been weighed in a few weeks) Maybe there’s something better but it works for me.
I went through the same thing last week. Ordered these from Amazon and I could literally sleep in them. So comfortable! I haven't figured out a solution for working out but since I am only walking the dog at this point I have been okay without one. I can always squeeze back into a sports bra for necessary if the energy magically comes to me.
My husband bought me on early on from Amazon after it was suggested by my doctor. It's a simple wrap with a velcro closure in the back. It's one size fits all and I felt it was a bit snug initially, but it's stretched and definitely helped, particularly on days where I have been out and about and more active. I ordered a breast pump through my insurance with the help of aeroflow and also applied through them for a belly band that my insurance covered (I'm in the US). The one they sent is Motif brand and definitely higher quality and easier to put on (esp now at 32 weeks). I'll include links to both below.
I like my Hofish bras a lot. Before baby I had sworn off underwire bras and these were just as comfy as the ones I had been wearing.
This is what I use http://i.imgur.com/CxzE9me.jpg

So far just this olive Timex Weekender watch from Amazon for $11.50 shipped. Hoping for some better deals on monday from Uniqlo, or maybe an Alpha Industries jacket since i missed that sale.
I am 24 weeks today and just bought a belly band off of amazon. I work in a school and am on my feet for most of the day. On monday i had to go home early cause was I was so uncomfortable. Now that i have one, i cant imagine going through the day without it! it just feels like extra support and im in much less pain by the end of the day.
this is the one i got: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0113WE0QS/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I just ordered the top one on Amazon since I'd like relief as soon as I can get it.
AZMED Maternity Belt, Breathable Abdominal Binder, Back Support, One Size, Beige https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0113WE0QS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_-2oaBbP3XQ1VD
I had SI pain, then sciatica pain and now just lower back pain in general. I started wearing my belt at 12 ish weeks when I wasn't even showing. I bought this one from Amazon AZMED Maternity Belt, Breathable Abdominal Binder, Back Support, One Size, Beige https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0113WE0QS/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_Xm7XBbSEJEZSK (Sorry I'm on mobile). My pain never disappear but it felt way worse when I skipped a day of wearing it so I recommend it.
That's the skirt! I'm pretty sure it's the US link for it.
So my usual bras started getting uncomfortable in the third trimester (actually they got uncomfortable the second I got pregnant, but whatever). I started wearing these cheap bras from Amazon, which have removable pads and not-great support but at that point I did not care.
I wore the cheap bras until I had to start thinking about returning to work at 5 months pp, at which point I measured myself properly and got a few new expensive supportive nursing bras at Bare Necessities (I did pump at work but I used the Elvie, so a nursing bra was all I needed).
At 16 months pp I still have and wear the cheap bras on weekends--they're also nice for sleep. The lining of the removable pads came off when I accidentally put them in the dryer, which is annoying but they still do their job and now I don't bother separating them in the wash and toss them in the dryer anyway.
Women's Full Cup Lightly Padded... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01EFNPD7W?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
I bought this 3 pack from Amazon and I'm a big fan. They are supportive and comfortable. I went back to work four weeks post partum so the removable pare gave me extra protection from leakage.
My friend used a Wine Rack to bring alcohol in to Spring Fest a few years ago. She only got caught because she was sharing with everyone, but it worked for most of the night!
It's completely normal for breasts to change size and shape during pregnancy and while breastfeeding. Some women find that their breasts grow significantly during this time, while others have minimal changes. It can be difficult to predict exactly how your breasts will change, but there are a few options you can consider to ensure that you have a comfortable, supportive bra during this time:
Look for bras with adjustable straps and hooks. These types of bras can be adjusted as your breasts change in size, providing a customizable fit that can grow with you.
Consider purchasing nursing bras. These bras are designed to be easily opened and closed for breastfeeding, and many styles have adjustable straps and hooks for a customizable fit.
Opt for a maternity bra. Maternity bras are designed to provide support and comfort during pregnancy and breastfeeding, and some styles have stretchy fabric or adjustable hooks and straps to allow for growth.
Consider a bra extender. These small, inexpensive devices can be attached to your existing bra to add an extra inch or two to the band size, providing some extra room as your breasts grow.
It's also a good idea to be measured by a professional bra fitter at a specialty lingerie store to ensure that you are wearing the correct size bra. They can help you find a bra that fits well and provides the support you need.
I recommend HOFISH nursing bras. They are very comfortable and great value.
Amazon has a lot of stuff. Can't go wrong with some thigh-highs or a spinny skirt.
This one saved me in the last month or so of my last pregnancy. Helped a lot with back pain.
Timex é un grande brand storico, nato negli stati uniti e ora svizzero. Tra l'altro mi sono accorto recentemente che é stato citato anche in blues brothers. In questo momento ho al polso un timex expedition cronograph :D
Swatch é anche quello un marchio che non ha bisogno di presentazioni visto la presenza in quasi ogni cittá.
Escludiamo i meccanici perché per quella cifra hai solo cinesate per davvero, quindi sicuro sul quarzo. E poi? field, diver, casual, elegante, sportivo...?
Tipo: per quella cifra come orologio da tutti i giorni prenderei il timex weekender https://www.amazon.it/Timex-T2N651-Orologio-Analogico-Tessuto/dp/B004VR9HP2/ (mannaggia, a ottobre costava pure 15 euro in meno)
Im in they uk these ones are a good length and better quality that other ones I’ve had
I used this one, it's around $25 .. helped a bit for walking around during the day (I was averaging 3miles ish a day,.working up until t3 days before I had my son) , but I still couldn't step to the side or more of a shuffle step at all without terrible pain. But did take a lot of pressure off so i didn't have to "hold myself" lol
Weirdly, Every once in a while I'd hear and feel a pop from my I guess my pubic bone. That was SO painfu, but followed by maybe 20-30 minutes of no pain at all. I just tried really hard to not walk at any angle just forward and small steps towards the end. Easier said than done. Getting up from sitting or laying down was always the worst
I hope it helps you, or you find a thing that does!
I used this simple one. It managed to hold everything up and it didn't get super sweaty and gross, plus it was easy to put on by myself
I also am 40DDD. Not completely wire free, but very portable- I used the Ameda Mya pump. It is small enough to put in your pjs pocket and is battery operated once charged so you can walk around with it. The only “wires” would be the tubing from the pump to the flanges.
I used this in combo with a bra recommended by my lactation consultant that you can slide the flanges into (bra has flaps where nipples are) and then I just pumped into two small bottles to put right into the fridge. (Bra on Amazon - Simple Wishes Signature Hands... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00295MQLU?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
Not perfect but I could easily put a shirt (or not) over the whole operation and walk around and get stuff done. The bra held the flanges securely in place.
Note I would think this is fine for around the house but probably not for trying to go to work and simultaneously pump. Unless you don’t mind some weird looks about the contraption under your shirt. 😅
Good luck! I am due in December and definitely feel more prepared this time around, but still interested to see what other moms have used too!
Amazon has some good ones. :3
I'm about the same height and I got these off Amazon recently, they can get almost to the top of my thighs comfortably. They're real nice.
This is like every transfemme's first skirt; comfy, stylish, inexpensive, and available in a variety of patterns and colors. Order in the same size you would order a men's t-shirt in. Comes in discrete packaging that doesn't say what it is. If you are paranoid about someone else you live with opening the package, have it shipped to a nearby Amazon Locker instead (often found at gas stations and other small businesses).
So I was not sure I would like it - this is a support one and for me it’s great cause all of my weight gain is in my abdomen. Bought a bigger size to accommodate end of term!
I like that it’s not high, it’s a lil thick so not sure how I would feel in the summer!
I bought the 3 pack on Amazon twice! HOFISH 3PACK Full Bust Seamless Nursing Maternity Bras Bralette S-XXL with Extra Bra Extenders & Clips https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01EFNPD7W/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_F4BME3GTMXVKCDXZJ00F
These are the ones: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01EFNPD7W/ref=cm_sw_em_r_mt_dp_881C32C2MAKNY433WT9S?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 1000% more comfortable than Kindred Bravely and just as good, if not better. Size up!
I did go running today and was pleasantly surprised that wearing my belly band helped a lot. I bought one off Amazon: AZMED Maternity Belt - Belly Band... https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0113WE0QS?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
Also wanted to clarify what I said about working your core. Some core exercises, i.e. those that work the trans abdominal muscles are fine! But traditional ab work, like crunches, bicycles, anything with twisting can stress your abs too much. Like other posters I’ve also been told to “hug my baby in” and subtly engage my deep abdominal muscles. Hope this helps ❤️
This pumping bra is the best! It really kept the flanges in place without worry or leaks. Check out the size chart for your best fit but I think it says your large-xlarge. I had 2 if one was in the wash. Does your insurance cover your pump? I got mine for free through aeroflow.

Well ... the heels unfortunately I don't know 🤷♂️ ... belonged to a family member who was going to throw them away 😄 but I don't see any brand on them.

You will likely be slower and need more breaks. Like you said - lots of snacks and water. Even though you might not have much of a belly by then, I would recommend taking a support band or belt like this one. It can help with the round ligament pain (which sidelined me around that time). https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B0113WE0QS/ref=cm\_sw\_em\_r\_mt\_dp\_YKYM6XW7A44W17C3ZNZC?\_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
Just fyi, I read somewhere that Nordstrom’s will convert any bra into a nursing bra for $10. It doesn’t even have to be bought at Nordstroms.
I creeped on your profile and saw you’re about 6 weeks post partum? I’d recommend getting a stretchy one for comfort while your milk flow regulates. My size changed after awhile once things calmed down a bit. The link below are the ones I got. They’re not the highest quality, but they get the job done, are pretty comfy, and are cheap. That’s really all I’m looking for!
I just got cheap ones from Amazon. These. . Started to wear them in the third trimester, nursed for 22mo and continued to wear them for a while longer since they are comfy and my old bras weren't (never going back to underwire). Bought some new normal bras that I wore for like a month before getting pregnant again and went back to the nursing bras pretty quick lol.
I ended up buying sets in two different sizes which is also nice to have 🙂
Thank youuuuu 🖤🖤 They're both from amazon, socks here and skirt from here!
Thanks! Here's the link, in case you are interested: https://www.amazon.es/vers%C3%A1til-el%C3%A1stico-acampanado-Casual-Skater/dp/B014FA0NB6/ref=sr_1_omk_6?__mk_es_ES=%C3%85M%C3%85%C5%BD%C3%95%C3%91&crid=5835ZT6TDY11&keywords=falda&qid=1640907099&sprefix=falda%2Caps%2C104&sr=8-6

Idk if you will like them, but they are going in the Same direction as yours just as lil lighter and to much white stripes in my opinion. (Still like them tho) But if you are happy with them go for it :^) or you can check Sockdreams.com they have alot to choose from anyway have nice <3 hope you find some that your like an be Happy.
Not speaking from personal experience yet, but this is the one a good friend of mine strongly recommended after her two kids: Simple Wishes X-Small/Large | Hands-Free Breast Pump Bra | Adjustable and Customizable Pumping Bra Fitting for Breastfeeding Pumps https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00295MQLU/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_glt_i_2RY2QC9D3B4QWXR73A11?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
Here's a real Casio (similar not exact same). I've never seen a replica Casio like this in my life. Most replica watches are $100 or more.
Casio Collection Unisex Adults Watch A168WA https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000LAKYW8/ref=cm_sw_r_apan_glt_fabc_S6BRR8027MTWST85EZKK?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1
You could look at a Casio bracelet digital like the A168WA or A178WA-1ADF very inexpensive, but still a little dressy. The batteries in these watches last a long time and the batteries are cheap and easy to replace. Even without Bluetooth or radio sync, these watches are very accurate.
I’m a similar size and tried so many expensive bra stores to no avail. I got desperate and just ordered these from Amazon. I practically live in them! They are so supportive, comfortable, and can be used postpartum. Hope this helps!!
my FAVORITE skirt that i ever bought was made by Urban Coco on amazon! it was $12 and the cutest thing ever. i bought the maroon one, but if you’re looking for black here is the link!!

Don't just get the because they're cute, get the right size. Measure your leg, find out how high you want the thigh highs, and look for the right size at decent quality
Ok, so. Don't just get "nice" thigh highs. I wanted thigh highs that went far above the knee, right up to the diaper. I measured and searched far. I knew I wanted 70cm high thigh highs, found these rated at 75cm, and a commenter saying they're much shorter so I took a gamble and it paid off.
Generally, ask around since someone may have more knowledge with thigh highs. It's how I looked around for larger ones. Hope this helps!
I'm currently 29 weeks pregnant and have used two different support bands. I was having issues with pelvic pain while standing for long periods of time or while walking for short periods. Once I started using belly support bands, that pain has been greatly reduced.
1) AZMED Maternity Belt - This one velcros in the back so it is sometimes a struggle to get it adjusted how I want, but it is still the one I grab when both are clean. It feels supportive while still being something I can wear all day regardless of if I'm sitting, standing, or whatever. It's easy to move without unhooking it when I need to pee (which is all the time) so I don't feel like I'm fighting with it.
2) Motif Medical Pregnancy Support Band - This one velcros in the front and feels more firm in its support, but I don't gravitate toward it. My biggest issue has been that it works great when I'm standing/walking, then rides up any time I bend over or sit down. It's also a pain to take it off when I need to pee.
I've also seen people recommend the style with a strap that goes over the bump, but I haven't tried that style.

These are what I bought THEY ARE AWESOME
A pregnancy pillow helped me. I wouldn’t suggest the one I got because it started falling apart and looking ugly right away 😅
Don’t skimp on maternity clothes, you will really want to feel comfortable and can wear your third trimester clothes the few weeks after giving birth, if not longer.
A back brace if you plan on doing any kind of work/cleaning that involves bending AZMED Maternity Belt - Belly Band for Pregnant Women to Support Back/Waist/Abdomen With Belly Brace - Breathable & Adjustable For Different Stages https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0113WE0QS/ref=cm_sw_r_awdo_navT_a_WXRF7GG6ZC3N0MG80FF7
I believe that our last specialty shop has closed. We had two back in the day but I haven't seen anything from them in years. If it helps, for my last baby I wore regular nursing camisoles or bras and then slid this on when pumping at work. It was pretty easy to flip down my nursing bra and hook this on. I didn't use the straps.
I bought this AZMED Maternity Belt from Amazon a month or two ago and it’s been amazing! I have extreme pelvis pain this time around and can’t walk very long without it. Not sure if it’s the best out there - I got upset because I couldn’t find any consistent/solid recommendations from old Reddit posts, but it definitely has worked for me!
I have this in yellowand I like it
If that's not quite it, look for circle or skater skirts
Here ya go! Generally anything from Kayhoma is great, very strechy and good for femboys :>
I've heard good things about these thigh highs https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07ZDF5VNJ?ref=ppx_pop_mob_ap_share
They seem to be very long, a garter belt might be a fun addition to keep them at the right height.
