    Hiya Ladies,

    I need some help in finding some work clothes for office type work for my growing baby bump! I'm popping in to Primark on Thursday to hopefully find some items because I don't wanna spend a fortune! But does anyone know where else to get reasonable priced work maternity clothes? & Preferably ones that are comfortable for the summer months!

    Thanks in advance :) xx

    Matalan in store have maternity leggings and dresses and that which would be good, their tops are a bit casual but very reasonable prices.

    I'm in the same boat but I'm only buying leggings and stretchy tops for work as we have a blouse over the top.

    For everyday though next matalan and new look are great. Also ASOS are good I just got a mat dress for a party from there.

    May depend on size of store xxx

    Mothercare have some bits in the sale and if you sign up you get an extra 10% off.
    I like the t-shirts from New Look, shirts are good from H&M just normal Lycra ones at £7.99 and ASOS for sale bits!

    I really struggled finding clothes in an actual shop. I was desperate for some work maternity pants, the only place I found some was debenhams. I have ordered some maternity tops online from new look xx

    I got my work clothes from ASOS, Mamalicious and Seraphine. Seraphine is a little more expensive alright but the fit and quality is very good, its worth the extra. Flattering, true to size and long lasting. Have a look at the Outlet section on their website, there's significant discounts.

    Primark don't do a specific maternity range but I can fit in their size 18 leggings comfortably and some of their dresses still so it's always worth a mooch x

    I got some maternity vests from George and wore those with my normal trousers/skirts with a bump band. These got me to 8 months. I then wore s few dresses from primark that were the stretchy soft t shirt material that you can find in the beachwear section. They actually looked really nice one with sandals and I wore some beads etc to dress up a bit. X

    Yeah, George at Asda is great for work clothes. I got some real bargains - £8 in the sale for formal jersery type dresses in black and grey. Think they were only £15 when full price. One of the comfiest items i've bought too.
    Unfortunately I have to buy online though because my local Asda don't sell maternity!

    Thank you ladies for all of your suggestions! I went shopping earlier today and bought maternity tights in Primark & a load of dresses & cardi's that will flow nicely over the growing bump! Nothing to extravagant or expensive! Nothing particular maternity but I think the stuff I got will definitely be nice to wear before and after I have baby xxxx
