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.

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 :)
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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.

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

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
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.
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!
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.
