So tell me - where can I buy maternity shorts or a maternity dress?

Next do one pair of shorts - they don't fit. H&M do one pair of mat. shorts... they don't fit. Is anywhere else bothering to make maternity shorts for this hot summer season?

And as for dresses - they have all disappeared. I looked forward to being pregnant in the summer, imagining myself wearing some flirty little sundresses - the height of comfort - but there's nothing around. Just formal dresses.

Can anyone enlighten me?

what about Topshop ? They do a maternity selection, you can buy online too

JJMB have a sale on at the moment - I got a leaflet through the post this morning - and they have a couple of strappy dresses, and a pair of shorts (only one mind, and not very exciting)

NomDePlume Mon 27-Jun-05 12:18:10

haven't checked them out though.

I have 2 pairs of JJMB maternity shorts (one black, one beige), really comfy.

Am happy to let you have them for free if you are interested Beatie.

I had that leaflet too Zubb and don't remember seeing the shorts. I'll check out the website. I know they had a nice linen dress for half price but sometimes linen can be itchy so I was put off.

QE - what size are they. That's a very kind offer and I would of course pay you something.

I think zebraz had a couple for sale last week - have a look at the for sale threads.

zubb Mon 27-Jun-05 12:23:10

just went to have a look and there are a few shorts on the JJMB website, not in the sale section though - in the maternity essentials.

Can you link me to the Topshop website please, I never could find it.

QueenEagle Mon 27-Jun-05 12:27:30

Off the top of my head i think they are a medium. I have to go out in a few minutes but I can have a look when I get back this afternoon. I will let you know.

My usual dress size is a 12-14 so I would imagine I went on that as a guideline.

QueenEagle Mon 27-Jun-05 12:28:14

And beatie I really wouldn't want any money for them, just want them to go to a good home!

I've bought some shorts in a few sizes bigger than normal, from the Tesco Value range. So only £3. Probably not the most flattering things ever, but good. They go up to size 22 I think.

Mothercare have shorts - not very stylish, more sporty but they look comfy.

JJMB have a knee-length sundress which is nice but quite clingy

I just bought these shorts from which arrived the other day - really love them. The only draw-back is that I think the buttons look a bit flimsy so might need a bit of reinforcement as I balloon out grow grin

Message me if you like the sound of a size 14 navy sundress from Mamas & Papas. Was going to Ebay it as the weather hasn't been warm enough for me to use it sad
