Working for Reitmans in Thyme Maternity was very interesting. It was my first job. The leadership team was fantastic. They taught me how to be a good salesperson. I learned so much about connecting with customers and building a relationship with the company as a base. I became very involved. I also developed new skills of selling and being very outgoing especially for a job that requires you to properly help pregnant women.
Commenters on earlier 'Mother of all' posts almost unanimously herald Seraphine as the best maternity jeans brand. Amtstevens swears: "I looked better in them than I did in my pre-pregnancy jeans! I am now pregnant with number two and relieved to be slipping back into these jeans. They are so comfy." Guayaba seconds this, saying her Seraphine jeans are: "even nicer than my normal jeans." CooperK says they work for her too, "and I'm no skinny minny." The maternity wear brand (they do breastfeeding clothes, too) was started by a French woman who honed her "fit systems" on herself during her two pregnancies. The jeans come in three lengths, and are all made in stretch denim for comfort and sag avoidance. They also do a good range of styles - here's a picture of Mad Men's January Jones, rocking their skinny grey luxe jeans (£65.00).

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 

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!
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.
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.

Thyme Maternity is THE fashion brand for moms-to-be. It's where you want to go to 'bump' up your style while maxing out on comfort. Look and feel your best at every pregnancy trimester, and even after baby arrives, in maternity clothing that fits and flatters your beautiful, changing body! Thyme's full of life experience offers you valuable advice, fashion tips and product knowledge on your incredible journey during and after pregnancy.
Many women choose not to wear maternity clothing. Instead, they buy normal clothing in larger sizes, which isn’t the most comfortable thing to do. Normal clothes are not made for your baby bump so you could end up with a shirt that covers your belly but that is too big around the shoulders, or have a pair of pants that fit your waist but are saggy around your legs.

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.

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 :)
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!
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.
