Most of the time I'm wearing my "fat" clothes, and even those are still too tight. But I refuse to buy clothes a size bigger because, you know, all this weight is going to come off eventually (right? right?!?!). I did ask my mom to only get me clothes for Christmas and to make sure they were loose and flowy, and fortunately that style is in right now. Otherwise, everyone would see my extreme muffin top exploding over my pants.
I also got several empire waist dresses when I was pg (since maternity dresses were always too big for me), and those have been amazing to wear right now. Only issue is that I feel like it's too cold right now to be rocking a dress to work.
And don't get me started on jeans. There's no way in hell any of those are fitting right now, so I've still been rocking my awesome Jessica Simpson maternity jeans.
DX: MFI TTC April 2011 BFP #1 7/15/11, EDD 3/22/12 - CP Varicocelectomy surgery 9/4/12 - T improved to normal, but still MFI IVF #1 w/ ICSI Jan 2015 - 11R/6M/6F, ET of a 3AB expanded blast w/ none to freeze.
Both maternity & regular clothes here. I hate, hate, hated maternity pants so I'm in my former "fat" pants. My non-maternity shirts just don't fit right, so I'm pretty much exclusively wearing maternity tops. Ruching FTW.
I had gotten in really good shape with personal training and everything before I got pregnant which is not good because NONE of my pre-pregnancy clothes fit. I haven't bought any clothes in a size up or 2 because I don't want to spend money on something I likely won't wear again once the weight is gone. So I'm still wearing mat clothes, pj's yoga pants etc. I'm incredibly unstylish these days. Sigh. Someday I'll lose the weight.

When I am not wearing pjs I wear leggings. Stretchy stretchy friends. I had to buy a couple sweaters that would hide the muffin top. I definitely had this crazy thought that I would have a baby and my body would bounce back right away with just some healthy eating haha.
This might not brighten anyone's day, but even after I stopped BFing with DS1, my boobs never went back to thier original size. I was a DD before my first preg, and an F/G after he was weaned. That was after I had lost all but 5# of the baby weight, so I'm just not even going to buy any more bras until I'm relatively stable in that department.
I was an E before my first, and H while nursing, back to an E/F between my first and second, and H again while nursing and then down to a D when she weaned! It was fabulous! Shirts fit and I seriously looked like I lost 15 lbs, even though I hadn't lost an ounce. Now I am back up to a G/H and I am praying I go back down to a D when I wean. I really don't like how I look with big boobs and realized that most of my body image issues revolve around that. Because of that, I haven't really done much shopping because I really don't like how anything looks on me. I generally cover up whatever shirt I have on with a sweatshirt.
I'm back in all my pp clothes, too. I bought one pair of transition jeans at one point because the ones I had that were a size too big got a hole in them. My jeans are still a bit snug, but I just wear pj pants around the house.
I am back in regular clothes. My jeans and work pants have some muffin top, so I either wear a loose shirt or stick to the one pair I have of larger work pants. Since it has been a warm winter, I have been able to get away with dresses and skirts most days.
Since I weaned in December, my boobs are back to pregnancy size. Pre-pregnancy I was a small C, now I am in D's. Who knows if they will continue to change.
My freakin' body, man. Because of the GD (I'm guessing?) I lost a lot of weight (inches) in my thighs and arms and waist while I was pregnant, but this PP kangaroo pouch is killing me. My mat underwear is huge, and my pre-preg underwear won't fit over the pouch. My pre-preg pants won't fit over my hips, but they're extra roomy now in the thighs, so... yeah. And my boobs have actually shrunk! So my torso is just very boxy right now.
Thiiiis!!! WTF, for real. The rest of my body went right back to normal except for this awkward pouch I get to rock. So I fit into some PP clothes (at 13weeks) and some maternity clothes. I hate it.
