Last month Avenue introduced its new plus size maternity line. That is right, they finally figured it out — fat girls get pregnant too.
Avenue’s Maternity clothing runs in sizes 14 to 32. At the moment there are only 15 pieces but that is fifteen more than we had before. A few pieces are a bit old marm style but there are a few cute items too. Basically there are four dresses, six tops, a cami, a cardigan, a pair of jeans, leggings, and a pant to choose from. More than enough to get the mom to be through the day to day.
It is not a bad looking jean, and it is Bootcut ($40) so I like it off the bat — I feel they provide necessary balancing especially if you are wearing baggy tops. The Stripe Ruffle Cardigan ($40) is a must have layering piece that the new mom can use after her pregnancy too. The Crosshatch Drape Neck Short-Sleeve Dress ($40) has nice texture with its pattern and is not overpowering. The Faux Wrap Linear Print Dress ($40) also has a pretty all over pattern and sexy neckline. The Drape Front Top ($30) comes in four colors.
I look forward to seeing this line grow over the next year.
Update June 2012: For some reason Avenue has taken down the Maternity tab making it hard to find. If you use the “search” feature on their site and type in “Maternity” you will get their plus size maternity offerings about fifteen or so items including tops and pants.
