Anyone knows where to buy maternity and nursing stuff?

ive just brought maternity skinny jeans from asda and lots of longline vest tops. purpless.co.uk have some nice things too at good prices. i havent had to buy much as im a sahm so not sure about work wear. nursing i find the nursing bras on ebay lots of brand new ex m&s stuff on there at very good prices. treating myself to a nice set of nursing nighties for my hospital bag from ebay. as oh thinking more of the practical things my baby brain didnt think of mentioned cant wear long pj bottoms due to catheter after c section and no point in shorty ones as they will sit on my scar so better off with comfy nightie with nursing clips so doesnt need pulling up smile also with tops you could wear normal tops for nursing and wear a cami top under it so can pull cami down and top up for discreet nursing hth

Sseraphine do lovely knitwear and tops that can be worn while pregnant and afterwards for nursing and is very flattering. They have a sale on at the moment as well.

JoJo has its sale on right now. Got a pair of work trousers for �14 that I will probably end up wearing every day.

Ebay is also brilliant - obviously maternity wear is something that people often want to sell on when fairly new.

Recommend seraphine if you need some dressier stuff for work etc, good quality and they do decent sales. Their sizes are quite generous, if you are between sizes I would go down.
Also eBay as a lot of people have bought too much mat clothes or it wasn't work for that long anyway so it's usually in good nick or even new with tags etc

I got two pairs of jeans from Mamas & Papas (although I had to get them taken up about 5 inches as I'm really short).

I've also got some maternity tights (really good) and a couple of tops from H&M, as well as a top from New Look.

I did also buy a really stereotypical 90s-style Asos denim pinafore and t-shirt off ebay... I couldn't resist. It's still too big as I'm only 5 months but I'm hoping in another month it'll fit.

Oh! And also had to get new bras really early on, got them from Bravissimo. The way I'm going I'll need some more soon though...

Jojo Maman has clothes you can wear for maternity and then continue for bf. I found them the best value for money & comfort.

Thank you all for the advice, I just bought a leggings and a knitwear from Seraphine. Checked Mamas and Papas too found them so cheap. Will check all of them. Having fun shopping online Woohooo!

Asos is good. I also bought some good stuff from Red Herring at Debenhams, can find it on their website. H&M too. Personally found topshop useless but I know friends that bought some stuff there too.

Another vote for seraphine, their sale at the moment is excellent. Lots of lovely dresses and tops and not at all frumpy
