Hello, can anyone advise which shops in Westfield London (Shepherds Bush) usually have maternity clothes in stock please? I have checked the website and found an obvious one being Mammas and Papas but what about in the Debenhams, New Look etc? Taking a trip to Westfield tomorrow and as it's a big place I thought it would be better to get an idea before we go rather than walking around all the shops aimlessly! Thank you
Sorry, not nearby so can't help but just to say I was in my local Mamas and Papas (not Westfield) this week - they have taken the maternity clothes out of that store, so it's online only! So not safe to assume they will have clothes...
Maybe try the websites of usual stores (H&M, Topshop etc) to see if they list their Westfield stores as stocking maternity?
Depressingly thin on the ground at Westfield. I spent a really annoying day there last year! Mamas & Papas had a few (but PP says not any more?), Topshop used to but think they've cleared the section, Debenhams have one rack. Is there a New Look there? They may have some. Gap don't do them there, same with M&S and H&M. For some reason there seems to be a move for lots of the big high streets to only stock maternity online, which is just stupid because sizes vary so much you really need to try on!
Hi Always, I was there yesterday - I found decent work tops in mamas and papas, they also have long length trousers/jeans (only place I could find that did). I bought some casual tops from top shop maternity, they're actually quite nice, and there's a decent section in red herring in Debenhams (some bits are pretty hideous but I bought a cute dress and a couple more work tops).
There's a new mothercare but the maternity section was pretty awful (unless you like tops with slogans on...), and new look has a decent section of casual clothes.
You have to brave the overcrowded-next-to-a-sweet-counter toddler play area of doom to get to it... but heeeey if all goes well we're going to be leaving DH to brave it while we shop braving it ourselves sooner or later!
Thanks for the info everyone. Went today and it was a a bit disappointing! I only wanted a pair of jeans and some work trousers but considering they have 100 shops in Westfield there are hardly any that have maternity wear in store. New Look currently shut (for a refurb I think). Mammas and Papas was ok but didn't have my size in over the bump trousers or jeans. Nothing in the huge M&S or Next at all. Eventually went in the newly opened Mothercare, they only have a few bits but luckily got some jeans. Tops all had daft slogans. I will have to buy on line which I hate as different shops/styles come up different sizes/fit and I'll end up sending half most of it back grrrr!
Kasey I did ask someone in H&M at Westfield where the maternity stuff was but they didn't have any? Thanks for the tips Cariad and Sid I just find it frustrating that I can't go to a huge shopping centre like Westfield to try on and buy some basic clothes!
H&m is really weird about how they stock maternity, two of my locals have it and neither is a particularly good one, I can't believe they wouldn't have shoved a rack or two in Westfield!
For what it's worth I've really liked h&m maternity, worn to death everything I got from there. Had a few bits from new look too but wasn't so keen. I've got a top/dress from gap that I haven't even worn.
