Depends what your after...... Bluewater is much nicer but there are no 'cheapo' shops (Primark,Peacocks etc). I went to Bluewater first and had a nightnare finding reasonable priced maternity clothes-i could have spent a fortune in the high end shops but i did'nt see the point as i wont be in them that much,unless it was a special occasion. The New look at Bluewater doesn't have ANY maternity clothes as they have moved them all to lakeside. I found the vast majority of my maternity wardrobe in Lakeside-Peacocks was especially good as was H & M. HTH.
Thanks for the replies Definitely after more the New Look, H&M end of the market for most things. Might get a few more expensive bits for work & wear them to death but going for cheap tops particularly as when I was pregnant with my son I didn't actually get big enough for some of my mat stuff.
bluewater is so much nicer! I went yesterday. There is mothercare, H&M, blooming marvellous, dorothy perkins, topshop, an expensive maternity shop but v nice downstairs cache something or other? Also next. Not sure what the department stores have in terms of maternity but you could ring and check, theres M&S, house of fraser and john lewis. Parking is free too.
I would go Lakeside -- I went to Bluewater early on expecting to have a great day maternity wear shopping but didn't buy anything, because it was all too expensive... Gap did have a nice selection, but it was frustratingly tiny.
