Hi all
My sister has a high powered job where her business dress (suits) are required to be super stylish and smart (she's 10 weeks pregnant so far but not on mums net so I'm posting for her) Does anyone know a good brand / shop that stock good maternity suits and fitted shirts ? Expense isn't a problem. She currently wears brands such as TM Lewin. smile

Try Cos. Not maternity but lots of their stuff fits a pg body and is far more stylish than most maternity wear.

Isabella Oliver dresses plus normal jackets? With my 1st pregnancy I got away w leaving suit jackets open till I finished work at 35 weeks.

Properly smart maternity wear is kind of hard to come by tbh - I found it tricky when I was PG. No problem if I wanted jeans and a slogan T-shirt though!

As money is not an issue, she might find it easier to buy suits a size or two bigger and get them tailored to fit.

I wore my suit pencil skirt with the zip open and a thing called a bump band over the top mine was from Isabella Oliver but lots of places do them, and then a maternity top, generally something that gave some shape, and my suit jacket. With trousers I got black maternity trousers in the nearest matching fabric.

Isabella Oliver dresses are the best though, some are so elegant, felt more elegant when pregnant than I do now!

I did what Brillanbar did too and used extender straps which attach to the hook and eye or button of trousers to give a few extra inches and then covered it with a bump band.

I bought a maternity suit from jo Jo maman Bebe but the jacket was awful and shapeless. I spend a lot of time in Court but ended up with dresses (Isabelle oliver) and my non-maternity jackets. I did wear the suit skirt from jo Jo a lot though just not as a suit!
