Where can I buy maternity sportswear - you know, 'proper' kit, not loungewear or prancy yoga pants?

Having emerged from the 1st trimester relatively unscathed (apart from putting on 1/2 st - eek!) I've decided it's about time to do some exercise. However, my normal running shorts are now splitting at the seams = where can I buy decent maternity sportswear please?

Does it actually exist?

I think I started a thread back when I first got pregnant (Feb ish) and had just joined the gym - lots of people replied that they just wore their normal roll type trousers under their bump but I wanted proper kit - the kind you sweat in not yoga style kit.

I got mine from Sporty Bump. They only sell two tops and two bottoms but these did just the job. I spent the first 25 weeks in the shorts which go on/over the bump (these come up quite tight) and then moved onto the below the bump capris. I highly recommend them

Hi Toppy - thanks for that. After googling some more last night I found Sporty Bump, and placed an order, so super chuffed to hear that their kit is actually good.
