Can anyone help! Where can I find maternity clothes larger than a size 18 that won't cost me the earth?

I'm just about to encounter this problem myself at a pre-preg size 20.

From what I can tell so far, M&S have a limited range up to a 22, Next go up to a 20, New Look go up to an 18.

And there's always eBay, where you can search by size...

But neither Evans nor Marisota do maternity clothes, which seems a bit of an omission to me.

I was a size 20 pre pregnancy, I have found DP and Next to be the best - online though - their instore ranges are rubbish!!

Next go up to 22.

I've found the Next trousers I've bought are very big. I'm usually an 18 but their 16 jeans are plenty big enough - in fact I think I could probably have got away with a 14 as the 16s are quite baggy around the waist bit (before the over the bump panel) and slip down rather a lot. Hips have got quite baggy too and I'm sure I haven't lost weight there!

I am mostly getting my stuff from Next as I am a size 22 and I think the sizes are generous as the stuff I bought from DP is a little snugger!

I was a 16 pre pregnancy, quickly an 18 and now wearing size 20 clothes - i'm an odd shape so maternity clothes were a complete nightmare, trousers falling down and tops too baggy around the bump but tight on the bust/butt so i just gave up and bought bigger.

I found Asda to be very reasonable, new look is good for maternity jeans and Evans - you can get some really good stuff in the sale there, i bought a lovely jersey maxi dress for just £25.

Good luck x

I found simply be have some although I am bigger than 22 but tbh my own clothes looked the same as I go for loose tops anyway lol. There wasn't a great deal of choice tho
