Every trendy mama-to-be needs to know about ASOS. The site’s maternity clothing selection is stylish, well priced and just really strong. It offers a number of different brands, but some of our favorite pieces are from the company’s private label collection. In fact, don’t be surprised if your non-pregnant friends want to shop your looks — it really is that cute.

I did all of my maternity and nursing gear shopping here and absolutely love it! Thyme Maternity across the street seemed to be the same in quality but has a smaller selection and is a bit more pricey. I have alway gotten great service here and there always seems to be great sales. In the month right after I had my baby my husband went to get me nursing tanks but the sizes he got were too big and when he went back to exchange them he said is was super easy and they were incredibly helpful. I have also gotten nursing shirts as gifts from there and had to exchange sizes and the gals were so nice about it. In some stores you sort of get the eye roll when you have to go return or exchange things or it even feels like the sales people are trying to make it difficult for you, but that has never happened to me here! Great place to shop :)

Today I was so disappointed with the customer service provided at the store by the person named Sharon at the counter. I doubt we will ever return to the store in the future. She was so rude to both my husband n me (9months pregnant). Their exchange/refund policy is decided by their salesperson's wish apparently. Thank god it's Canada n consumer rights r better protected than any other countries in the world. Please hire better sales people.


Spending more than £50 may seem pretty steep for maternity wear, but there's a small army of women who would argue that if you get enough wear out of your jeans, then it's worth spending over £100. I have heard great things, for instance, about designer maternity wear shop, Blossom. They sell jeans by Citizens of Humanity, True Religion and other revered brands with oddly cod-philosophical-sounding names. They adapt the jeans themselves, adding their "Blossom band". A fashionista friend shelled out about £170 on a pair of 7 For all Mankind straight legs from Blossom and says: "I wore them almost every day up until about five months after having the baby, so well worth it." Another friend of mine, who is stickler for quality, got some James Jeans for just over £100 for her first pregnancy and reckons, if you end up having more than one child, it's definitely worth the investment.

The advantages of under the bump are that they aren't so bulky under tops and to combat exposure or to allow you to wear a shorter top you can always wear a belly band or long vest top under your top top. Under the bump tend to work better for skinny, stretchy style jeans as the stretch in the denim will hold the jeans on your leg as supposed to having to rely on the waist band only.

I couldn't bear shopping when I was pregnant, so I picked up a pair of black Moto jeans from Topshop and was done with it. It's true what they say about Topshop maternity jeans: they don't stay up - so you're forever hoisting them. On the plus side, though, they were comfy, fairly smart and under £40. This, I think, is what a lot of women end up doing. I asked Beth Graham, an independent fashion designer whose style I admire, and who has recently had a child, what she did about maternity jeans. I was expecting some obscure denim tip off but, no, Graham got a few pairs of Topshop jeans (and some of their chinos which she says earned quite a few compliments). "The jeans did fall down," agrees Graham, "but they were a good price and had some good styles."


Most pregnant women know about Destination Maternity, as it is one of the very few stores that exclusively sells maternity apparel and much of it is quite cute! The reason this store earns the top spot on our list today is because along with traditionally-sized maternity clothing, Destination Maternity is one of the few stores that carries a full line of plus-size maternity clothing, too.
Horrible experience.  Never order online from this company.  Actually, never buy anything from this fraudulent company.  After they canceled an item, not me, they shipped the rest and only partly refunded the money from the canceled item.  After numerous emails back and forth to customer service, they claim it was already discounted.  SInce when does a promotion of buy 4 get one free, mean, buy 4 things, and we'll take a little bit off each item, claiming they have all been discounted. To top it off, I even bought 5 things, so even if one was canceled there should have still been the same deal of buy four get one free. I will never purchase anything from this  company again, whether online or in store.  They cheat customers.   They don't even deserve 1 star

Last pregnancy I lived in my topshop Leigh mat jeans, but they have sagged (understandably - heavy wear!) bought a new pair this time round but fit was bizarre - really baggy at top of thighs. Curses! So they have been retuned and I am after slim-ish fit blue jeans with a good fit that don't sag. they don't have to be a bargain, will pay up to £50 for good 'uns. It would be a bonus if they didn't fall down when I pick up my toddler, and I hate over-bump trousers. Help!
There are many options in maternity shirts from Old Navy. There are tanks for layering, nursing, or for use when the weather is warm. There are also long sleeve and short sleeve maternity T-shirts in many stylish colors and patterns. For those looking for a special occasion outfit, or something that can be worn to work, there are also tops that can be worn with dress pants or skirts.
