    What do or did you do about maternity wear? I can't find anything for my size unless i just buy bigger sizes than normal... but then they don't fit properly :(

    This is for ladies size 20 and up!!!

    i got things from matalan in a size 20, and ive lost weight while being preg so i didnt have to buy things in too much of a bigger size. my normal size 22 things fit me for a while, i just move to stretchy leggings and long tops/jumpers. as ive got bigger in the bump dept the maternity stuff in a size 18 or 20 is fitting me fine. always worth trying things on :)

    I lived in leggings and tops I have some maternity jeans in 20 or 22 from next too but I was generally a size 20 in all clothes and didn't change much.

    same as bev i wear leggings and a long top but my maternity stuff my aunty gave me so i didn't technically buy anything, the only maternity thing i bought was a bump band so i could still wear my fave tops but i refused to pay out for maternity gear!

    will say though if your going to buy the next size up, try things on first because i bought top the other day fit in the shop put it on today and it doesnt fit! :S xxx

    I'm only just in some maternity wear now at 22 weeks, as all my normal clothes still fit. I got mine in George from asda, although there isn't a huge selection. xx

    Hi dollface! If you do manage to find any please let me know. I'm only 6 weeks so not yet in need of maternity clothes. My brother is getting married in September tho when I'll be 8 months gone so would really love to find somewhere that does some nice plus size maternity clothes. If I don't, I'll end up at Go Outdoors looking for a tent to wear!!! :)

    I'm fortunate in that I lost some weight in the first month of pg, so my clothes are still fitting me atm. I'm glad u did this post cos it will give me some ideas where to look when I need to. I tried the Internet cos I really wanted a top that says something like "hands off my bump" or something like that, but couldn't find any I liked in a size 20.

    I thought tescos might do something, but I asked at my local extra store and they don't do maternity clothes! :shock:
