WHEN MY HUSBAND AND I found out we are expecting a baby this winter, one of the first things I did was think about building some semblance of a maternity wardrobe. Luckily, most of my pregnancy will be spent during the fall and winter, which means that I can get away with wearing leggings and tunics a lot of the time, but I will still need to pick up a few pieces to fit my ever-expanding belly.
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.
Thyme Maternity is by far one of the best retail jobs I've ever had. Full time employees have great benefits and the management was always very positive and encouraging. The discounts were amazing and helping pregnant women find clothes and products that made them feel comfortable and pretty was a fulfilling and fun experience. The breaks were often and fair and the shifts were always a reasonable length. My only complaint is that the part-time hours could be unreliable but for a student or someone with a financial plan to fall back on it would be perfect. I would absolutely recommend working for any of Reitman's affiliates if you get the chance!

Loved the old navy maternity line while I was pregnant! Super affordable and extremely comfortable and flattering. I definitely did not want to go out and spend a ton of money of high end maternity brands if I was only going to wear the clothing for a few months. Definitely would recommend their maternity clothes and will be going back there for more next pregnancy
Maternity clothes are designed to provide the support and comfort you need during pregnancy and nursing. Maternity and breastfeeding tank tops offer great support and unique features that make it quick and easy to feed your little one. A nursing bra is a must-have post-pregnancy, offering comfortable, supportive cups and a unique design that allows easy skin-to-skin contact for feeding. When choosing skirts, pants, jeans, or other bottoms, look for an elasticized panel that can be worn over your bump or folded under it.
As part of the larger Gap Inc. family of brands, Old Navy remains committed to supporting both people and the environment. The brand promotes equal pay for employees, regardless of gender, strives to improve working conditions in its factories, and prohibits forced labor and child labor. The Gap Inc. family also aims to make the world a better place with its ambitious 80% waste diversion goal and 50% greenhouse gas emissions reduction plan.
There are zero options where I live as well (Peterborough) at least from my searches. I've tried Kijiji and the clothes just look wrinkled and big and kinda gross. I attempted to shop today for just cute flowy shirts in regular clothes and was brutally disappointed, they just don't fit over the hips and bump :( Thyme maternity was stupid expensive and I thought quite boring/granny. The mat area in our old navy looks like a bomb went off. It's torn apart and almost empty.

A changing wardrobe is one of the inevitable side effects of a changing body and you might end up wearing comfy maternity clothes long after you start breastfeeding. Throughout your pregnancy, you’ll want to find comfortable clothing that accommodates your growing bump, but shopping for maternity fashion doesn’t mean you have to completely forgo your style goals. 

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!

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.
Motherhood Maternity is larger, has more selection, and less pricey than Thyme nearby.  Unfortunately, there isn't a lot of maternity clothing places to shop at but this place satisfied what I was looking for. They sold maternity bras, jeans, tanks, etc and had a huge sale section. I came here late near closing time and ended up trying a bunch of clothes which took even longer. The salesperson was very friendly and didn't rush me. Even when my husband came in with our baby and baby started getting fussy as she wanted to breastfeed, the staff told me to go ahead and take care of the baby's needs as she was just cleaning up the store after closing anyways.
Dressed up or down, jeans are a sartorial anchor around which we build outfits, and that's why they're often missed the most out of all the pre-pregnancy clothes that hang, cold and unworn, in the wardrobes of expanding mothers-to-be. Trouble is, unless you strike it lucky, finding the perfect maternity jeans involves time and effort, two things which will probably be in short supply when the time comes.
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.
Great store with a great selection of Maternity clothing. 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. They also sold little trinkets such as pregnancy books, stuffed animals, fetal heart monitors and baby calenders. It's a great little store located near the escaltors between Sears on the top level.
Each piece in our maternity wear collection is crafted with quality fabrics and durable construction to make the best maternity clothes in Canada. We design clothes specifically with your growing belly in mind for a comfortable, flattering fit. Browse fashion in soft fabrics with plenty of give like textured knit, slub jersey, French terry, and stretch modal. Find garments in more structured materials such as Tencel, linen, poplin, chambray, and premium denim with special construction features that make room for baby while still looking great on you. Explore tops with empire waists, well-placed darts, and extended hemlines to fit and flatter your stomach alongside crossover and snap shirts great for nursing. Skirts, shorts, jeans, and other bottoms have either an elasticized waist or a full, demi, or inset panel so they look as great as they are comfortable to wear.

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
There is lots of parking in this plaza.  I liked that there was a bench, so I could feed my son easily.  The fitting rooms are also really large and easily fits a stroller inside.  The staff were nice enough, but they didn't have the exact size of what I was looking for.  I went during the nursing event.  The staff seemed disappointed that it wasn't busier, but considering that it wasn't that busy, it's also weird that they didn't have my size.  They were helpful enough.
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."

I was just looking online today on the motherhood maternity website and all their sale item clothes are buy one get one free. I'm just wondering what their sizes are like. I'm pretty short 5'4 and was about 116lbs before pregnancy so usually size small clothing. I know it says your suppose to order what your your pre- pregnancy size is so I am  just wondering if that's true. Thanks for your input 

If something you order doesn't fit right, or you just decide that it isn't what you were hoping for, send it back. Returns are free. We want you to be happy with your experience at thredUP. After you have your baby, come back to us so you can find some new clothes to flatter your post-baby body, and maybe even pick up an outfit or two for your newborn!
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.
If you are trying to buy on a budget (you have a baby to think about, after all!), Walmart is a great place to look. Its maternity section is brimming with dresses, tops and pants that are both fashion-forward and super affordable. We love Walmart's "Maternity Essentials" section, which has all the basics you'll need for those nine months (and beyond).
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.
With a large maternity section that even includes swimwear and evening gowns, Nordstrom is a no-brainer if you’re looking to flawlessly style your changing body. An extensive selection of brands, silhouettes and price points are key factors in making it such a good resource — basically, all the things you loved about shopping Nordstrom before you had a bump!
When you shop our great selection of maternity clothing online, you'll find easy, lightweight styles made of high-quality fabrics and designed with you in mind. We offer a wide selection of sizes so you can easily find the right size for you and keep up as you change throughout pregnancy. Super soft jersey and cotton have just the right amount of stretch for you to comfortably wear the latest fashion-forward styles. Choose from jeans and dresses with elasticized waists and breezy tunics with flowing silhouettes. Our fitted tops are stretchy without stretching out, so they fit comfortably over your curves while maintaining their shape. It's important to be comfortable when you're expecting, which is why we design these styles with incredible attention to detail and fit. Whether you're going to work, hanging out at home, going out, or running errands, there are styles that will keep you feeling your best from A.M. to P.M.

During my first trimester, I thought I might get away with continuing to wear my low-slung hipster jeans for the duration. And I probably could have eeked them out for way longer than I did, had I invested in button extenders or a Bump Bandeau (as recommended by JTryner in an earlier thread). But there was always going to come a point when I got a little larger all over (be it from swelling, fat or, y'know, the extra 2 ½ pints of blood that swishes around in women when they're growing a foetus).

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. 

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.

My boss and team leads were incompetent. I was hired with promises of 35+ hours per week and that there was no team lead above me and I could move up quickly. There was a team lead already hired that prevented me from moving up. That team lead spread lies about me and when I brought it up to my boss she refused to go to HR and told me not to either. My other team lead constantly reminds me I'm not going got heaven
