I worked there a few years ago and the discount and hours were great but the management at the time was not the best. They were condescending when I made a mistake and they were very stingy about useless things in the store. Other than that, it is interesting to learn about the special material they use for the clothing and different products that help - more... with during pregnancy (e.g. body creams and bras) and after pregnancy (e.g. nursing shirts). - less

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!
Today, Old Navy is one of the largest clothing companies around the globe, and its maternity clothes are a perfect extension of the styles and ideas this trendy brand has long embraced. Old Navy for Maternity proudly sets itself apart from other maternity clothes companies in a few key ways. While Gap – Maternity and Motherhood offer classic clothes at premium price points, Old Navy for Maternity champions current fashions at affordable prices. With casual, professional, and special occasion options, Old Navy has all of your maternity clothes needs covered.
I believe that it is worth investing in maternity jeans early on in your pregnancy - they are so much more comfortable on your expanding waist, even with a small bump so why wait? Also compared to normal jeans they will have limited wear (although I have friends who still wear theirs for a Sunday roast). You will most probably be wearing them for a while once the baby has arrived too - so get some you love.
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.
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).
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 :)

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!

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.


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.

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.

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.

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 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!
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.

Staff are helpful, but the store is tiny and you find you're being followed and/or watched with every item you stop to look at. Thyme Maternity as a whole is not the most fashionable maternity wear. They definitely try, and some items are okay. But the cut of pants and tops tends to be very loose and flared, and so it doesn't necessarily reflect more current styles. Good for some staples, but if you're looking for something more "trendy" try H&M at the Eaton Centre.

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!
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.
