View Full Version : Target maternity clothes - shrinking question
09-15-2004, 12:30 PM
I'm wondering if anyone has the Liz Lange pants that are 62% polyester, 33% rayon, 5% spandex or the LL underbelly jeans with the buttons on the sides that are 92% cotton, 6% polyester, 2% spandex. Did they shrink in the wash? I would assume that they'd shrink in the dryer.
They both fit well now with some room to grow in the belly & elsewhere. Just wondering if I should size-up if they'll shrink in the wash.

Didn't buy her pants, but bought her t shirts. They all shrunk just horribly - to the point that I can't wear them. Even washed/dried them on gentle/low heat.
A TOTAL waste of money.
I found shrinking and small size to be an issue with all Target maternity clothes. Couldn't wear them past about the 6 mth mark. I would either size up, or buy somewhere else after that stage in the pregnancy.

Allison, I'm not sure how far along you are but if you have the LL jeans with no panel, they will definitely not work for late pregnancy no matter what size you get, IMO. Mine shrank just the tiniest bit (not more than regular jeans)but they are definitely meant for earlier on since they don't have the super stretch panel situation. I was able to wear mine to about 5 months (this is #2 for me and I started showing in month 2). I've had good luck with their non-cotton tops in terms of shrinkage, as well, but haven't tried the pants.
