Has anyone found any light summer dresses in cheerful colours? jsut want a couple of dresses to take on holiday (where it will actually be hot).

Have not liked Jojomaman, Gap or H&M. Dorothy p's quality a bit shite.

I've bought a few cheapish Maxi dresses from the likes of Peacocks, Next, and George, they're not even maternity dresses but because of the way a maxi-dress hugs the bust and then hangs there's loads of room in the skirt for my bump. They're lovely and cool because they're cotton and there are some lovely colours available.

I was going to suggest Jojo and Gap, where I have some mat dresses from, so clearly we have very different tastes. New Look?

I have really struggeled with maternity clothes and like to wear dresses. I have bought non-maternity maxi dresses. Am currently 36 weeks and there is still plenty of room for the bump. Other suggestions are Seraphine (they have an online store but also a shop within minutes of High Street Kensington station in London). I have bought from there and the quality is good. ASOS also do a selection of maternity clothes. I can't comment on their quality having never bougth there but htey do have a good choice. Good luck.

I have one of the floral ones. Not really my usual taste, but light, comfortable and summery. And not that dear.

I bought a few dresses in the French Connection sale - 1 maternity (on Asos) and 2 non-maternity just a bigger size in the shop - one is really flattering and I got lots of compliments on it, it's strapless with silk bottom part and can be dressed up and down, quality is very good smile and with sale prices at 50% god value for money too

Seraphine has a great sale on just now, as does Isabella Oliver. ASOS have some great things too.

I've struggled to find anyuting in my usual style - got a couple in Mothercare that were ok for work, patterned tea dresses and a couple of maxi dresses from ASOS and Very.

Try TK Maxx.
I'm not normally a fan but went in yesterday and they had lots of lovely pg friendly stuff for really cheap!

Primark and Peacocks for non maternity maxi dresses. Have lived in mine during the hot weather, cheap as anything and perfect for packing since they're jersey smile can't go wrong!

redexpat Sun 10-Jul-11 16:08:34 have got some lovely maternity things, including a RANGE of dresses. Otherwise I'm jumping on the maxi dress bandwagon.
