I got some last year from Next - set of 3, have a look on line to see if they are doing some as most of their stores don't carry a good maternity range

Dorothy P or HM....they have these

I had a pack of 3 from Next (different colours as last season but very similar style) - they really were very comfortable and hard-wearing so I would recommend them.

I have a very plain one in black from Dorothy P, about £8 I think?

Mothercare do some plain brown and black ones which can also be used afterwards as nursing tops so don't feel so bad spending money on them... I've lived in mine since the weather got warmer. Here it is

Harder than I ever imagined! I tended to just try on any ordinary long looking t-shirts I came across. Ended up with ones from all sorts of places, supermarkets, New Look, Primark, Next, Dotty P's - everywhere really. On the upside long-line still seems to be in trend so there's every hope of finding stuff on the high street.

Maybe have a look at the larger size mens ones?

Are you near a big Top Shop? I would never get anything in there normally, but I got some good longline maternity t-shirts and a cardi when I was pg. I was v impressed with their maternity range generally.

I got some from Blooming marvellous but have they gone bust?

Nooooo don't wear men's t-shirts! Guaranteed to make you feel and look mahoosive all over even if you ain't.

not proper maternity tops but i got some black,white,red short sleeve round neck tops from asdas just upped my size! £3.00 each! bargain!

mcflumpy Wed 22-Apr-09 18:56:22

second GAP although the white t-shirts are a bt thin. Also have you considered a bump band? Wearing these have let me wear my own t-shirts up til now (30weeks). Saved buying too much.

new look blooming marvellous still going and have this perfect black tshirt

Vertbaudet have some very nice looking plain t-shirts with a bit of stretch in white, grey, beige and red. When I was last pregnant I wore their t-shirts to death, they were a great fit.

I'm using non maternity t-shirts from Primark and Dorothy Perkin, just in a larger size - they are very long so go over the bump. Not sure they'll last to very end of pregnancy but will get pretty close.

Scooop neck top from isabella oliver.

I got a lovely plain black one from Debenhams -

really lovely, and flattering.

littleweed10 Wed 29-Apr-09 17:09:16

LeninGrad - my bargain of the maternity wardrobe was..... a pack of two maternity T-shirts, one each in black and white, for the princely sum of about £8 for the pair (full price) from PEACOCKS.

They have washed really well, still cover my bump (at nigh on 40 weeks)and have a nice fitted style, short sleeves, round neck, not plunging.

Highly recommended!

Note - they only sell maternity things at bigger Peacocks stores. I got mine in Chelmsford.

Happy shopping

completely agree about scoop necks - especially when you have a hammock of a maternity bra which shows itself at every movement!

question - why don't maternity bras (usually very big, high, unflattering) not work with the number of maternity tops I've tried, necklines instead are often too low and expose a great piece of said bra.

Hardly a 'come hither' look. well not in my book anyway!!
