hi milward, I got some lovely things from vertbaudet and they often have sales and offers. They do good baby clothes too. They are at www.vertbaudet.co.uk
I know it's not mail order but if you can get to an H&M they have great maternity stuff and it's so reasonable. I know it wouldn't be easy with your DDs but just thought I'd mention it. My H&M stuff has been passed on 3 times so far!
Thanks ediemay - I like h&m as well. The lift at my local branch can only just about fit a pushchair - such a hassle as I agree that their stuff is great & price is good. I'll check vertbaudet though as didn't know about this one.
no probs fran1 - hopefully someone from boden will think what a great idea & add some maternity clothes into their catalogue. Thanks for your reply A stripy, spotty, pattern mismatched top would have disguised my increasing bulk!!
I'd second the recommendation for US ebay sellers but was disappointed with Isabella Oliver - clothes look lovely but the trousers I bought were much too big and I ended up selliing them (unworn) on ebay at 32weeks pg! I am wearing their wrap top now and it looks good bu is a right pain to wrap, stay wrapped (without showing bits of flesh everywhere) and tie in a comfortable place. The other item I bought from them was a dress which is fine but cut so that you can't wear a bra without it showing!
La Redoute do a small selection of maternity wear.
Dear all - Thanks for the super tips - lots of sites to checkout GG I was a size 10 but now getting bigger all over - last time gained 25 kilos & outgrew most of my maternity clothes!!but somehow lost it by bf & always running after dds
No-one's mentioned Mothercare - I ordered some stuff which came today - jeans, a wrap top (which stays together VERY nicely ) and a maternity swimsuit. It came quite fast, I was pleased with the quality, and the site was easy to use (though the pictures were a bit small). I've also ordered a top from JoJoMamanBebe which should come tomorrow.
My only gripe is - do they think small women don't get pregnant? I had to turn up the jeans six inches and the sleeves on the top by one inch . Does anyone know of any petite maternity ranges available on the web?
Try www.maternityexchange.co.uk if you don't mind wearing some secondhand stuff. I got most of my clothing from them, including 2 swimsuits - not secondhand - which I wore constantly (summer of '03... what a nightmare!).
