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.
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'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.

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!
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.

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.

I couldn't bear shopping when I was pregnant, so I picked up a pair of black Moto jeans from Topshop and was done with it. It's true what they say about Topshop maternity jeans: they don't stay up - so you're forever hoisting them. On the plus side, though, they were comfy, fairly smart and under £40. This, I think, is what a lot of women end up doing. I asked Beth Graham, an independent fashion designer whose style I admire, and who has recently had a child, what she did about maternity jeans. I was expecting some obscure denim tip off but, no, Graham got a few pairs of Topshop jeans (and some of their chinos which she says earned quite a few compliments). "The jeans did fall down," agrees Graham, "but they were a good price and had some good styles."


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 worked for Reitman's for over 9 years, moving to all branches, eventually being moved to thyme because they said it was the only store I would be able to advance in. After working there for a year and a half I was told that they were just going to hire from the outside instead because it wasn't fair that I might play favorites. While I enjoyed the time spent there with the people I worked with it wasn't a career sadly.
I have size 10 topshop Leigh & hate them, really baggy crotch on them, constantly pulling them up when I get up. have tried every pair in new look same problem.in new look a size 10 just abt fits my calves but have a massive waist & if I were to wash them id never get my legs in them. I found h&m straight leg to be good in size 10 only they were too long
