dunno but recommend seraphine or crave as having better choices (I know isabella oliver does seperates but think they are better cut for later on in your pregnancy)

Am a lawyer too. Try Formes for office work - Isabelle Oliver does separates but are better for late pregnancy. Seraphine has some nice smart casual officewear. Crave has suits but are quite expensive for just a few months wear.

Last time round managed to last until 5 months in normal suits with belly band from Formes and hairband on suit trousers (keeping jacket on undone) and then moved into lots of black trousers and smart tops.

would agree with dinky- I spent quite a few trips to the loo adjusting my blasted isabella oliver skirt before I finally expanded sufficiently to fit it at about 31 weeks -that said there stuff is a godsend for third trimester.

Reason I mentioned crave is material nice (and can always sell on ifyou like after) - have a real aversion to some of the cheap nylony stuff that some maternity office wear is made of

definitely formes for a decent suit...

otherwise (fellow lawyer) found black dresses a good and comfy option.... perhaps one size up on normal for now... and proper preg one for later?
