Maternity clothes in Meadowhall?

Has anyone recently visited Meadowhall for maternity clothes? I'm going there today in the hope of finding some I can try on before buying as I don't like ordering online and having to guess what might fit! Any tips?

I went there over the summer, dont live locally but was hoping to get loads. Bit disappointed tbh. H&M was the best, they had a range in store, new look had a small amount and mothercare (pretty obviously) had some. Can't really remember anywhere else having sections though - I ended up going home and ordering online for most things! Good luck

Yeah, just the ones that bucket mentioned, plus a tiny rack in Topshop. It's pretty rubbish!

It's crap for maternity clothes! New look has a small section of basic items. Last year I wanted a nice maternity dress for a wedding and tried Debenhams, which strangely doesn't even have a maternity section in store! A bit shop like that as well! I got all my maternity stuff online. Some nice stuff on ASOS and Simply Be.

To be honest hardly any shops stock their maternity clothes in store. They just don't get the footfall for it. I bought pretty much all my stuff online.

Thanks ladies. That's at least better than in Doncaster where I've tried already. There's only Mothercare and a small selection in Peacocks there. New Look and H&M don't have baby at all so it'll give me a tiny bit more choice. I've ordered online over Christmas and taken 90% of it back as it doesn't fit! Why do they assume that pregnant women don't have big boobs?! grin

Try Simply Be. They don't do a maternity range as such, but the larger sizes are properly cut and a lot of the clothes have stretch in them. Don't be put off by the staff at Meadowhall saying Simply Be have closed - they did but are open in a new unit.

If you're going to Meadowhall, bear in mind that there is a JojoMamanBebe at Fox Valley, which is just maternity and baby stuff!!

Fox Valley is newish retail park at Stocksbridge, about 15 mins from M'hall.

Thank you for both of those tips LittleCandle and BikeRunSki smile
