Hi there! New look is great for basics, as is primary. For skinny jeans you can't go wrong with h&m, and they do nice tops too. It's worth having a look on eBay too, for jojo maman, seraphine, and boden stuff. I also got some packs of pants in primark (normal bikinis) but just a size or two up! Hope that helps x
I got loads of stuff from asos. It's ridiculously cheap and I found fit my bump well. They have a huge range. Some stuff isn't overly good quality material but given the low price and that I wasn't wearing it for long, I didn't mind.
I got everything from asos. I didn't need much. I wore harem pants and maxi dresses I already had and then just got leggings, a dress a few long tops and a swimming costume and that was it! It was around this time of year too so the sale is on. I spent around 100 pounds on everything I needed.
I know different from you but I'm sure they'll have what you're after.
Congrats. H&M all the way. Cheap and cheerful, and not too frumpy. My one tip is that if you are planning to Breastfeed, get maternity wear that enables you to do that. I was in maternity clothes much longer after delivery than I thought I'd be!
I used to love H&M when pregnant, lots of lovely bits from tops to jeans, vests, etc. Asda George have a nice selection of maternity clothes too and keep an eye on sales online you can get great bargains.
Definitely look at ebay for bargains. My best trousers came from there for a fiver! H&m skinny jeans are great but size up as they come up small, unlike Next which I found to be huge. Also I would only go for over bump trousers and skirts.
Last time I got bundles of stuff from eBay, mainly Next tops, jumpers and trousers.
This time round I need to look a bit smarter at work so I've added to my old stuff with a few dresses from eBay (second hand Isabella Oliver, Crave, Asos and Topshop, new Genius Genes- all £5-15) an Isabella Oliver top from eBay, two pairs of skinny jeans (second hand Topshop and New Look from eBay- last time was 7 yrs ago so the old ones are bootcut which I'm not keen on any more- can't tuck them into my boots), new tshirts, vest tops and skirt from the New Look sale, tights and pyjamas from the Mothercare online sale. Wearing my normal cardigans with the dresses as I don't button them anyway. Probably spent about £150 altogether.
What a fab selection, thank you all so much I honestly didn't know where to start! The stuff on Seraphine is exactly what I'd wear all the time if I could, it's lovely! I'll be on the lookout for a bundle on eBay
