We had a recently opened store which I have been making use of! I have bought a pair of maternity jeans and leggings. So far the stiching on the soft band of the jeans as come apart and left a hole and the leggings have recently split up the inside of one of the legs. They are only about 8 weeks old and I have cheaper clothes/leggings that I have been wearing for years without problems. Size is correct, so it's not that. The clothes themselves are not cheap and will be going back to the store for an exhange. Just wondered if anyone else has experienced this?

I've got the denim shorts and they have been brilliant, I'm in Portugal at the moment and I've been wearing them practically every day - really comfy and no quality issues so far, however I have to admit, there were quite a few things that looked great online but seeing them in shop put me off, either shape or fabric/quality for the price not so good - for example the vest tops look really long in the pics-got to the shop and they are really short!

I've had good experiences with JoJo clothing. The cut/style seems to sit better on me compared to some other brands. No probs with stitching. Maybe you picked up something faulty?

Jeans are amazing, kept me going through pregnancy. Only shop I've found to sell boot cut maternity jeans too. It annoys me that H&M don't!

Tights were awful, can't understand how their seams work. Dreadful buy.

Bought a dress online, love the colour, but it's completely shapeless, I might wear it as a winter nightie in 6 months...

Mixed feelings about it but one of the better shops I think.

Have a great denim skirt which I wear all the time as well as a black dress which I wear for work. Never had quality issues with either maternity or childrenswear.

The bootcut jeans and denim skirt are brilliant, I live in mine. The tights I don't think were their own make, and yes they were rubbish. I have been disappointed with the quality of some of the fabrics on the tops in particular, and nothing is long enough in the body for me, but haven't had anything fall apart like you describe. The staff in the store near me are really lovely and helpful though, so I would certainly return them. 8 weeks is very short for something to fall apart.

Fwiw I have found their children's things to be good quality but small on the sizing too, in case you're tempted. DD was out of the age 3-4 winter dresses before she was even 3. They are beautiful classic styles though, especially for girls.

I wa really disappointed with them same as you (but that was two years ago now). Compared to Gap, river island and few other makes not good. Shame as always found childrens stuff great

haven't bought their maternity wear before but bought some printed pyjamas once for my son a few years back and they were a weird shape- really short in the body and the material didn't feel soft at all, felt cheap.

But I have also since then bought other stuff that feels nice and wears well. I'm undecided whether they're good quality but they do have some cute classic kids styles.

Not used their maternity, but I once bought dd an all in one splash suit and the zip went on the second wear. They replaced with no fuss and didn't have any problem with the replacement. Or, infact, with anything else from there.

We loved jojo clothes and my son has had nearly every item, in all the collections, however we are really disappointed in the quality of the knitwear. On returning two knitwear items to the Chester store we were told the items had been washed too often, both of which have been washed twice. Other knitwear have developed holes and not kept there shape... Not sure I have faith in the brand or attitude of staff anymore, shame as we have lots of fun and enjoyed him wearing the clothes!
