Asos is the site to be on!! I've ordered many a bargain and have uploaded photos for you to see. I really struggled finding nice maternity clothes else where for cheap. Enjoy!

I've sent back pretty much everything I have ordered as the sizing seems to be all over the place. Bought 2 dresses same size. One was a mile too small and one would have fit my husband. Got a midi dress that came to just above my ankles.

Really can't wait for baby to be here then I can dress myself again!

The dresses look cheap! I'm going to have a look thank you!

Chelle is that with asos? What brand as they do other r brands not just their own? Are you quite short? I have problems because of shortness too. I shall update when clothes are here if any good but they look pretty from what I can see! X

Get a good pair of maternity leggings and then just buy dresses which are stretchy. I saved a fortune doing that second time round.

I've got Leggings and I also got a lot of dresses and three pairs of jeans second hand from fb x

I was going to have a look at ASOS today. Only worried about the sizing too as I'm quite tall. I've got to order something though, not only am I starting to stretch out my stretchier skirts/maxi dresses but just not looking good anymore, not good when still need to look nice for work. Let us know what your order is like

So far I've done fine with just a "Belly Belt" to extend my trousers, and looser tops and tunics. 28 weeks. Trying to avoid buying much more if I can!

I can recommend the ASOS maternity tights .... they fit really well and are good for us tall ladies too! I have found with most ASOS own brand clothes they do come up a bit large so normally either order a size 10 - when im normally a 12 or order both and just send one back!
Also ... Can I recommend primark midi dresses! I have bought about 6 ... different styles ... all super stretchy ... I just went up a size and they should do me through most of my pregnancy now ( currently 24 weeks)
Good luck ... I have hated the 'nothing fits me' stage and trying to avoid buying an entirely new wardrobe on top of everything else!

A lot of the clothes I'll probably wear not pregnant tbh. I bought a lot second hand too. All my clothes are pretty tight and belly popping out the bottom of tops so wardrobe was needed. It was probably needed before pregnancy tbh x

I have really struggled with Asos, tops have been fine but the sizing for their jeans is really out, everywhere else I have been a 14, yet Asos 14 didn't go passed my knees! When I measured against my new look jeans there was 6 inches difference! Don't get me wrong I love Asos it's just a little hit and miss.

Got a few nice bits in George Asda,h&m and gap.

Yeah that's why I didn't go for jeans as I'm different sizes everywhere. I bought my jeans second hand and tried them on lol x

I bought a few tops and a dress from ASOS Maternity and they've all served me well so far, but Topshop has been my absolute favourite for maternity leggings and jeans - especially the Joni over the bump style.

Thanks butterfly. Don't think I can stretch to topshop prices atm. We're currently doing the house up so in a small budget for maternity things haha x
