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.

I've been here several times over the past few months. The staff has always been very friendly and helpful. The change rooms are large, and there is a big, clean bathroom available in the store (so convenient!) The selection tends to be more comfortable/ casual attire, with far fewer options for more formal events. But I found that the online site seemed to have some additional options that I didn't notice in store. Overall, good quality, comfortable maternity wear for a reasonable price and excellent in-store customer service.
The verdict: It's a cliché, but dungarees look really cute on a pregnant body, no? That said, they're not always the most practical when it comes to those frequent toilet breaks (if you know, you know). That being said, these were comfortable but sturdy. You probably won't find them as easy to wear in the later months though, as they're not as stretchy as the other pairs.
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.
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.
Ok so I HATE maternity clothes... or I should say hated... I bought my first pair of maternity jeans yesterday from primark of all places and I am literally in love! They are still nice and skinny and fitted but so comfy around my bump - check out my maternity video on what I purchased here; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r3bLjGSHMZE&index=3&list=UU-DxGKz7B0xh_zSDzgnL2cw
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.
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.

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).
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!

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.

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.

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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
