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.
Busy mamas who are focused on prepping for baby — or doing a million other things — and don’t feel like spending time shopping for maternity clothes may want to check out Stitch Fix, a curated personal styling service that offers a maternity option. 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.
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.
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.

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. 

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!
There are zero options where I live as well (Peterborough) at least from my searches. I've tried Kijiji and the clothes just look wrinkled and big and kinda gross. I attempted to shop today for just cute flowy shirts in regular clothes and was brutally disappointed, they just don't fit over the hips and bump :( Thyme maternity was stupid expensive and I thought quite boring/granny. The mat area in our old navy looks like a bomb went off. It's torn apart and almost empty.
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 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 

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 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.
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!

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 :)

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.

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.
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.
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).

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'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.
As part of the larger Gap Inc. family of brands, Old Navy remains committed to supporting both people and the environment. The brand promotes equal pay for employees, regardless of gender, strives to improve working conditions in its factories, and prohibits forced labor and child labor. The Gap Inc. family also aims to make the world a better place with its ambitious 80% waste diversion goal and 50% greenhouse gas emissions reduction plan.
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.
