OK I need some new clothes as mine are getting too tight. I'm only 15 weeks though with my 1st so have pretty non-existent bump.

I need jeans, a couple of work type shirts or tops and a tankini or something for swimming.

I'm not great at buying online - although accept I'll probably have to. But today, I'm off to the shops.

Oh - and I really don't want to spend a fortune.

Any advice, tips, must haves, things to avoid greatly appreciated.

Waist high leggings from American Apparel are nothing short of amazing. Comfy, light and they never ever fall down... My best maternity buy so far.

Cos sale is on at the moment and there's LOADS in there that functions as maternity wear without looking like maternity wear - none of their clothes have a waist!

Haven't read whole thread so my suggestions might have already been mentioned. Try Next for jeans, I preferred under bump jeans at first. As I got bigger I was comfier in leggings, got a couple of maternity pairs from Mothercare which I lived in. Non maternity tunic style tops in bigger sizes than normal over the leggings. Next & Mothercare for maternity PJs/nighties too. ASOS has a nice range of maternity dresses for parties, weddings, nights out etc. Finally, have a look on eBay- I bought a few bits that the sellers had barely worn for a fraction of the price of buying brand new.

I pretty much didn't have to by new clothes until now (third trimester) I've just found some yoga trousers (£12.50 from £25) from Vertbaudet on sale. Also found a voucher code 4756 with £15 off if you spend £20 (it's up in a few days) just thought i'd share whilst it's still valid.

New Look have loads of different length jeans on sale at the min too.

Wish I could find some cheaper nightwear though sad

Hi ladies,
I'm doing some research for my dissertation looking at the availability of maternity wear on the high street. If possible could you take 2 minutes to complete a short survey, everything will be confidential.

Many thanks
