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.
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! 

Dressed up or down, jeans are a sartorial anchor around which we build outfits, and that's why they're often missed the most out of all the pre-pregnancy clothes that hang, cold and unworn, in the wardrobes of expanding mothers-to-be. Trouble is, unless you strike it lucky, finding the perfect maternity jeans involves time and effort, two things which will probably be in short supply when the time comes.
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.
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).
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 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.
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 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
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.
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 :)
Every trendy mama-to-be needs to know about ASOS. The site’s maternity clothing selection is stylish, well priced and just really strong. It offers a number of different brands, but some of our favorite pieces are from the company’s private label collection. In fact, don’t be surprised if your non-pregnant friends want to shop your looks — it really is that cute.
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.
