Hi, I have a rare few hours in London before a meeting on Friday and am wondering if anyone can tell me which H&M stores have maternity sections? (and maybe which the nearest tubes are too, please?) Thank you
Sorry just reread and saw you are at a meeting that may be miles from regents/Oxford street. If you are only interested in h&m suggest you find store nearest to meeting (hopefully website has store finder) and call them. If they don't have mat they'll tell you nearest one that does. However if you've time regents/Oxford street always fun and loads of choice - tube Oxford or Piccadilly circus
H&M has the best trousers/jeans I think (very soft and stretchy over bump band but fairly slim legs, so you can still have nice legs) You should really try to get there. Unfortunately I only know the central/west London area Regent Street (central line, Oxford circus) - no other branch on Oxford street by the way Westfield Shopping Centre (central line, Sheperds Bush or I think Hammersmith and City, White City) Whiteleys Shopping Centre (Circle Line, Bayswater or slightly further away, central Line, Queensway) Kensington High Street (Circle and District Line Ken High Street)
The problem is that sometimes they have only huge sizes, I needed to go there several times and to several branches but as I said, they did have really good trousers and nice basic shirts too. I guess you should try to get to Regent Street and Westfield as both are on Central Line and both maternity sections are relativly big. If you didn't find anything you can still try Whiteleys as it would be more or less on the way back but their choice is not huge. Oh, and all this information is about a year old but I suppose still correct
Oh, and if you are already there, you should have a look on their newborn stuff. They do those vests with poppers on the side so you don't need to pull them over the baby's head. I quite liked their trousers with feet on at the beginning too. (Sorry, I have no idea about the right terms for those two things)
I didn't think the H & M at Oxford circus did maternity wear? The only ones that I found doing it was at the very far end at Marble Arch side and Brent Cross. Gap do maternity wear now on Oxford St near Bond St station. I discovered this very late into my pregnancy I only bought a bit of stuff but it lasted ages and was super stretchy.
I didn't think H&M at Oxford Circus did mat wear either - but Topshop is right there with the maternity shop as others have said, and there's the big Mamas and Papas shop on the other side of Regent Street too.
HS Ken H&M has mat wear and lots of kids stuff, but might not be so handy from Liverpool Street.
The new H&M at the top of Regents St does though - nice big section on the Lower Ground floor - it's just down from Oxford Circus station. TBH I found Westfield rubbish for mat clothes - only Next Maternity, Mamas and Papas and one rack in Zara - not impressed! (Lots of cute baby shops though... )
Sammy74, I'm sorry, I hope you didn't go there because I said there was a maternity section. I am really stupid, I go there so often to buy baby cloths. Don't know why I got confused, must be baby brain.
I see this thread is a little old... but I have /exactly/ the same question!
Sweet OH returned a lovely skirt (with small hole in seam found once home) for me to the Regents St store but they didn't have another and he was 'too English today' to ask for a discount so now I have no skirts at all that fit!
It isn't available on-line and I think the Oxford St stores don't do maternity any more. Any others that do?
(I need longer legs... my other new maternity skirt has to be turned up before I can wear it!)
