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.
I have size 10 topshop Leigh & hate them, really baggy crotch on them, constantly pulling them up when I get up. have tried every pair in new look same problem.in new look a size 10 just abt fits my calves but have a massive waist & if I were to wash them id never get my legs in them. I found h&m straight leg to be good in size 10 only they were too long

ThredUp is an online consignment store, but if you do not mind purchasing pre-worn items, then this can be an excellent destination for finding affordable maternity apparel. ThredUp is actually the first place I purchased a couple of maternity items from because I could not resist the low prices. They currently have more than 3,000 maternity items listed for sale, and all are a fraction of their original retail prices.


I was so happy to see that old navy carried maternity clothing while I was pregnant. I found their clothing super affordable especially compared to other maternity stores. The majority of my maternity wardrobe for both of my pregnancies came from old navy. I had 2 pairs of maternity jeans that were extremely comfortable. One had the shorter panel and the other had the longer one which was very useful the bigger I got. I also had some really comfy t-shirts and a few cute dresses. I also really liked the tank tops.
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

I'd say so.  I just loaded up on a bunch at the outlet in Vegas and normally wear size 6-8 depending on the brand, and most of the size small fits me fine.  They carry some different jean brands though, and sometimes I'm a medium in those, but that's normal for jeans to fit weird like they do when we're not pregnant!  Don't even escape that when looking for mat clothes!
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.
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.

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.

If ever there was a time when fast fashion is an obvious choice, we think it’s when you’re pregnant. Considering you’ll need something on trend and in season, you don’t want to spend a lot of money, and you will probably not wear it a year from now, it’s smart to scan H&M’s maternity offerings. From great jeans to sweaters, skirts and tops, you can build a good base for all nine months from the brand’s selection. Plus, be sure to check out H&M's nursing dresses and bras — you’ll need those before you know it!
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.

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.

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.

There's no exact science as to when you should start wearing maternity clothes. As every woman's body changes differently, you may not know when you need maternity clothing until your regular wardrobe starts feeling snug. A maternity band is a great piece to take you from the early stages of pregnancy to the end. It offers support for your growing belly, while giving you the coverage you may need as you transition from your regular clothes. Keep in mind that all maternity clothing sold on BestBuy.ca is designed to fit throughout pregnancy and after, so it's never too early (or late) to start stocking up on cute maternity tops, chic maternity dresses, and belly-hugging maternity bottoms.

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

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.

If you've ever been pregnant, you know that maternity jeans can be a real saviour for your wardrobe. As your waistline expands, everything starts to not fit quite so well (sob!), and it can get uncomfortable—not to mention expensive. But if you have some decent denim options at your disposal, you can at least wear some of your looser tops over your bump. And there are some brilliant jeans that can help with that.

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.

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.
