Ok so I HATE maternity clothes... or I should say hated... I bought my first pair of maternity jeans yesterday from primark of all places and I am literally in love! They are still nice and skinny and fitted but so comfy around my bump - check out my maternity video on what I purchased here; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r3bLjGSHMZE&index=3&list=UU-DxGKz7B0xh_zSDzgnL2cw
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."

Generally, you should buy maternity clothes in your pre-pregnancy size. As maternity clothing provides extra room around the belly and bust, it gives you the comfort you need for your changing body. If you're in between sizes or are still unsure of what size to buy, consult our maternity wear sizing chart. Take measurements around the fullest part of your bust, your hips (under your bump), and your bump circumference, and compare these numbers to the sizing chart to find your ideal fit.
I worked this job part time for a year before deciding to return to work full time after staying home for 5 years with my kids. Part time hours were fine; pay was minimum wage. I was repeatedly offered the store manager position but the hours would have been less than ideal (working every weekend and several evenings a week) and the pay offered was brutal. All associates were pushed to sell specific products and these sales were tracked weekly. The review process was horrible- you could rate 'excellent' in every aspect, but if your store wasn't meeting the sales budget, you 'failed' your overall review.

I worked for Reitman's for over 9 years, moving to all branches, eventually being moved to thyme because they said it was the only store I would be able to advance in. After working there for a year and a half I was told that they were just going to hire from the outside instead because it wasn't fair that I might play favorites. While I enjoyed the time spent there with the people I worked with it wasn't a career sadly.

Busy mamas who are focused on prepping for baby — or doing a million other things — and don’t feel like spending time shopping for maternity clothes may want to check out Stitch Fix, a curated personal styling service that offers a maternity option. With each “Fix” you get five hand-selected pieces from an assortment of over 50 maternity brands, ranging in price from $28 to $150. Order on demand or get a monthly box, then buy what you like and send back the rest. This may be the easiest decision you make as a mom.


Pros: 1) The staff were very helpful and friendly and welcoming to us and our beloved small dog. 2) Very reasonable prices -- which seems unusual in maternity fashion retail. 3) While my wife and I did not love any of the designs available in the store (she was looking for a relatively formal dress for her baby shower), there was one we quite liked, and they had a much greater selection of casual ware. 4) My wife tells me there were huge, well designed change rooms. There was a nice place for me (and other men) to sit so I could do my yelping while my wife tried on clothes. Cons: 1) There were some ads on the wall with models wearing especially nice maternity clothes, but the particular style we liked the best was no longer available to purchase. I prefer the practice of many other chain retailers of advertising particular styles that are actually available to buy. 2) Not so good (although perhaps understandable) return policy. Everything on sale is no return and the one dress we liked just enough to buy, we learned at checkout was no return also (even though it was not on sale) because it was classified as an "occasional" or "party" dress. My wife was on the fence about the purchase anyway and this was enough to make her change her mind and not buy it.
Last year a friend of mine was pregnant and she wears plus size clothing. She had a tough time finding plus size maternity wear until she spotted this store. There is an entire section reserved for plus size woman ranging from X to 3X.  The plus size selection is great and very reasonably prices. I'm sure if this store didn't exsist, she may have had to stay indoors for the remainder of her pregnancy because she couldn't find a thing to fit her at the other maternity stores in Halifax.
