Best places to buy maternity clothes and cosmetics

When I got pregnant for the first time, I was afraid that cosmetics would be harmful to the baby and myself. And where to buy good maternity clothes was always a concern. Thanks to Muji, iHerb or other brands, I was more comfortable and confident whenever going out.

Reliable organic cosmetics stores

Pregnant women should use organic cosmetics instead of chemical ones.

1 - Muji

This is a household products and apparel chain retailer that sells affordable products. I often buy rose water, essential oils and moisturizers at Muji. One thing I really like about Muji is that its products are sold in small bottles (100-200 ml) instead of 500 ml ones.

This came in handy when I had to stay at the hospital for a week. I didn't need to carry bulky cosmetics bottles with me, which was very convenient. Muji cosmetics is therefore also an ideal option for travelling and business trips.

Getting dry skin and feeling hot were two things I got on my nerves while pregnant. Luckily, using Muji moisturizer made me feel so much more comfortable.

Note: Organic cosmetics require persistency. They do wonders for the skin, especially pregnant ladies', however, unlike cosmetics using chemicals, it would take a while for you to realise it.

2 - Shopping online on iHerb

I shopped on this website the most during my 8th and 9th month of pregnancy when I already took maternity leave. I got a great deal of free time, so I browsed the Internet more often and bought more cosmetics online.

iHerb offers free shipping on orders over 2,000 yen.

I often buy bio-oil and cream here. Free shipping is very appealing to customers.

3 - Shopping at pharmacies

Purchasing cosmetics at pharmacies will be more secure with the guidance of highly qualified pharmacists. In addition, I never have to worry about the product quality here.

When I was first pregnant, I remember asking about sunscreen for pregnant women at a pharmacy, but there was none. However, the pharmacist here introduced me to sunscreen for children, which actually worked on pregnant women.

Some of the pharmacies I often shop at are Kokumin, Sun Drug, and Drug Eleven. Apart from cosmetics, they also sell supplements.

Two places to shop for quality maternity clothes that you must put on your list!

1- Tokyo Outlet

One interesting thing about Japan is that whenever a season ends, big chains will bring their inventory to outlets for sale. It's held every weekend everywhere in Japan, offering surprisingly low prices.

Price range: 2,000 yen - 4,000 yen

Advantage: trendy, quick to catch up with customers' tastes, suitable for people from 20 to 40 years old.

Note: Tokyo Outlet offers a wide range of 100% cotton clothes, suitable for pregnant ladies, especially in hot weather. However, 100% cotton fabric is prone to wrinkle, making me spend more time ironing in the morning.

After having two children, I have drawn a lesson that pregnant women should buy 100% PE clothes, which do not easily wrinkle.

It's hard to pick up maternity clothes, and it's even harder to pick cotton clothes that do not wrinkle.

2 - Bershka

This brand offers affordable clothes and many promotions. I often buy jeans at Bershka when I was pregnant for one to three months because their quality was amazing. The clothes were so soft, sweat-absorbing, and stretchy that they made me believe wearing Bershka jeans during the first few months of pregnancy would not affect the baby.

Selling clothes at much more affordable prices compared to Zara, which is also a brand of Inditex Company, however, the quality of these two brands' clothes is pretty much the same. When shopping at Bershka, I often don't care much if whether it offers discounts.

Fashion and cosmetics are indispensable to every woman, especially when they are pregnant. For me, those brands were genuinely the greatest helpers during my pregnancy.
