I need help! Having (I think) exhausted my local shopping centre, I am stuck. I am pregnant and tall, and just need some (non-maternity) stretchy, long vest tops to cover my bump/the top of my maternity jeans. Preferably with wider straps, not strappy straps if you know what I mean?!

Oops - posted too soon. I would be very grateful if someone can suggest places I might not have looked. My primary had none in, nor did New Look.

Thank you!!

FFS. Primark, not Primary. Cheers autocorrect.

I had some Gap maternity vests when I was pregnant. They were exactly the same as a normal vest except longer and very stretchy and comfortable, but not shaped for a bump at all. I still wear them as I find normal vests too short. I don't know if Gap still sell them.

I also had some maternity vests from mothercare which were similar but cheaper. Not such a nice stretchy material, though.

Lovely, I didn't try Gap so will give them a go. Thank you smile

H&M, they are on their website as jersey dresses, but they are basically a long vest, I'm 5'10 and they come to mid thigh on me. Don't know how well they will stretch over a bump, but I'm size 16 and they stretch round my beer gut!

You need to order online as I find the instore stock is appalling.
I have a few from new look, and h and m
Hush ones are brilliant (too big when not pregnant !) and on sale at the moment ...

I've just bought lots of these from next online. I'm sure they had some sort of offer on too?

Esprit ones are fab. Next do some in basic colours and good enough quality.

Oh you wonderful lot! Thanks so much. I was hoping to buy in store as I have a shopping centre voucher, but looks like I'll have to buy online and spend the voucher on a treat rather than a necessity! Shame!

Next do longline vests although maybe only the strappy style.

Peacocks have some. The ribbed ones are nice and stretchy and only £4

I love the Hush ones.

best longer ones i've found are H&M £3.99 ones. they are quite thin straps but they're adjustable.

Matalan and asda had some today, in loads of lovely bright colours.

I bought one in Sainsbury's only this week. I have a very long body and this is mid thigh on me! Aces. £5.

Sweaty Betty do some amazing vests - the Mantra vests are my fave. Obviously they're sportswear but they are nice and long, the fabric is beautiful and they wash well. Lots of colours too.

Matalan £4, come below bottom to upper thigh - might need a bigger size than normally worn to go over your bump as they are quite a firm material

I bought long ones from TK Maxx and wanted some less long and got the Matalan ones - they were just as long!

Baukjen do good quality,really long ones.
Boden are also doing a long line vest at the minute too, which is good.

I'm a little over 6ft and I bought loads of vests from Long Tall Sally - lots in the sale right now.

I'm 38 weeks and and a size 16 and the stretch over bump fine and I think will be handy afterwards to layer under tops for breastfeeding. I did get the ones with thin straps but sure they have thicker strap ones too. They also have some very long t shirts / Jersey dresses in the sale which I picked up.

The H and M vest 'dresses' are brilliant! I lived in them when pregnant, they're perfect. And cheap as chips. They're not dress length when you have a bump, they just cover it nicely.

LTS. I lived in a couple of those when I was pregnant. They have loads of colours to choose from online.
