I'm on 12 weeks at the moment so am really struggling as normal clothes don't fit comfortably, but maternity are all huge .. and just going one normal size up doesn't seem to work as they sit wrong on my tummy, sigh ... any ideas from anyone?
mini at that stage I wore trousers and used a hairband looped around to hold them up. Got a few cheap t-shirts from Dorothy perkins' tall section which were long enough to cover my trouser waist. Then moved onto maternity wrap dresses and a skirt a size too big with the long tops. Then I got big!
I'm in a rush so I can't do links, but look on Asos at the Mamalicious stuff. I've bought 2 dresses from them and they are both lovely, not the normal boring wrap dress. The necklines are good for big norks - I'm a 38G and still growing and they are low enough to flatter but don't show acres of cleavage.
On the expensive side, but cheaper than Isabella Oliver, check the dresses here out. There's loads of lovely ones as seen on Denise Van Outen and Mylene Klass. http://www.tiffanyrose.com/maternity/clothing/CBDP .html
