Now into the thirds trimester my jeans are increasingly uncomfortable and I think switching to stretchy tights is the way to go. Where have you all found nice maternity dresses or tunics to wear with tights?? Thanks x

What are some good brands to look for? Jojo Maman or Dorothy Perkins?

I have several nice ones from JoJo. They aren't cheap (in the 30 quid range), but I only have a couple and I wear them weekly and have since 2nd trimester. Plus they are ideal for postnatal use and feeding too, so I'll easily get 6 months out of them. You'll probably find loads secondhand as well if you're less lazy than I am.

Thanks mindutopia. How does the sizing come up on these? If I'm a 12 would a medium or small?

I never bothered with maternity anything, I don't see the need. I had a collection of Primark tunic style dresses, so stretchy and comfy, that I paired with think tights or leggings. With a jacket and heels they were smart enough for work, with boots and a cardi they were dressed down.
I hardly wore anything else.

Asos are good! I always search for 'smock dress' or 'tunic' and lots come up, then I order them Low>High price and work my way through. Its good in that a lot of non maternity stuff will fit nicely as its loose fitting.

If I were in my 3rd trimester, I'd head over to George (Asda) online. They have some great maternity stuff at a great price. Currently 20% off dresses. They don't sell this stuff in store, but have a fast/free click and collect.,default,sc.html?start=40&sz=20

That is quite a good deal! Hope they are not too clingy though.
