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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
en tant que conseillère mode je n'ai pas vus beaucoup de côté "management" de l'entreprise, mais ce que j'ai vu de ma gérante et toute l'équipe de gestion de mon magasin était très bien. Elles sont acceuillantes et prètes à aider toutes celles qui veulent s'avancer dans la compagnie. j'ai appris beaucoup sur moi, comme mes aptitudes d'organisation en travaillant dans l'arrière-boutique. j'ai aussi appris beaucoup sur le service à la clientèle. L'aspect le plus agréable de mon poste sont mes heures passé dans l'arrière-boutique; ça me permet d'utilisé ma créativité et ma logique pour trouvé des nouvelles idées d'entreposage pour les nombreux morceaux de vêtements que nous reçevont à chaque semaine.
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.
If you've ever been pregnant, you know that maternity jeans can be a real saviour for your wardrobe. As your waistline expands, everything starts to not fit quite so well (sob!), and it can get uncomfortable—not to mention expensive. But if you have some decent denim options at your disposal, you can at least wear some of your looser tops over your bump. And there are some brilliant jeans that can help with that.
