Have to get some maternity clothes as only fit one skirt comfortably now. Can anyone recommend mail order companies - as it's difficult for me to shop with my other dds in tow!! Thanks xx

Blooming marvellous


Next used to do maternity

And there are a couple of others i cannot remember the names of, but they are always advertised on the back of mother and baby mags.

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

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.

sh**t milward, when i saw edie may post vertbaudet, i realise i meant that NOT Boden!! Sooooo sorry to get your hopes up! At least i don't think Boden do maternity, i'll go and have a look for you!

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!!

aren't small lifts a pain? Also, small toilet cubicles when you're pg - I used to have to reverse in!

Isabella Oliver as worn by Trinny (of What Not To Wear fame)


both do lovely maternity wear, well made and much more flattering than the marquee-shaped tops from Blooming Marvellous!

SOmetimes you can find nice stuff in Dorotyh perkins and H&M as well.

I recommend looking on ebay at US sellers, where you can find loads of stuff from pea in a Pod, DvF etc for really amazing prices.

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?

loved the isabella oliver clothes as I wear a lot of black. Have also looked a formes they have a lovely cardi. Miaou - I think they do petite clothes as well? Great advice everyone.

Try 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!).
