Maternity sportswear?

It's getting increasingly difficult to keep my bump covered when in the gym. The gym pants are not so much of a problem, but the tops always keep travelling up, especially when doing weights! I'm doing bodypump and pilates, and whereas there are loads of maternity yoga pants and tops, there doesn't seem to be much for other kinds of exercise. The only one I've found so far is, but they have a very limited range.

I really want to continue exercising as long as possible (especially now that the sickness is on its way out), but find it very frustrating always having to pull down my top.

Anyone got any tips on where to look?

Mat leggins from somewhere like next.
Mat t-shirts from anywhere.
Men's x-large Nike t-shirts cover my bump (and arse) nicely and still look sportyish.
I would try e-bay as well. I got a nice Reebok sleeveless mat top there a while ago.

I never managed to find maternity sportswear (other than the baggy yoga stuff) for going to the gym, running on treadmill, etc. Ended up wearing old gym trousers with drawstring waist that I can wear low down below the bump and don't squeeze, and big gym tops / baggy t-shirts, plus strong support running bra. When pregnant with DS last year, looked literally everywhere, and now with DC2 have given up, at 30 weeks am wearing the old drawstring trousers and big Nike tops again.
