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).
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!
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.

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.


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. 

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!
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.
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.
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.
Thyme Maternity is THE fashion brand for moms-to-be. It's where you want to go to 'bump' up your style while maxing out on comfort.

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.

Topshop's maternity range delivers on comfort and style, making it exactly what every mum-to-be is looking for (I know, because I am one). The company's denim section in particular is brilliant: It now features maternity versions of its most popular styles. My insider at Topshop told me that the brand's over-the-bump Joni jeans in black are the best-selling style.
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!

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


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.

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.

Commenters on earlier 'Mother of all' posts almost unanimously herald Seraphine as the best maternity jeans brand. Amtstevens swears: "I looked better in them than I did in my pre-pregnancy jeans! I am now pregnant with number two and relieved to be slipping back into these jeans. They are so comfy." Guayaba seconds this, saying her Seraphine jeans are: "even nicer than my normal jeans." CooperK says they work for her too, "and I'm no skinny minny." The maternity wear brand (they do breastfeeding clothes, too) was started by a French woman who honed her "fit systems" on herself during her two pregnancies. The jeans come in three lengths, and are all made in stretch denim for comfort and sag avoidance. They also do a good range of styles - here's a picture of Mad Men's January Jones, rocking their skinny grey luxe jeans (£65.00).
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.

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.

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.

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.
