I think Asos maternity wear comes up large, apart from the skinny jeans which are more true to size.

You could try eBay for Isabella Oliver and Jojo mamen Bebe etc. I found Isabella Oliver I needed a size 3, Jojo I needed a small. Got some basics from next (jeans, packs of rib vests / t shirts) and again needed smaller, 10 or even an 8. Am generally a size 10-12. No help with your specific request, but just to say you may be lucky and pick up a bargain on eBay with bundles of maternity clothes. (You may have to watch for a couple of weeks)

I think Purpless are basically the same dresses as Zeta Ville, which I bought off amazon. I wasn't expecting much for the price but was pleasantly surprised! I liked the dresses so much I bought several colours and just wore them continuously for the last few months. Sizing wise I'm usually a 10 but found the 12 a better fit; they seem to come up small. No idea on other things than dresses from there I'm afraid.

Red Herring - jeans come up quite long, and generally i found their stuff came up larger rather than smaller.

Hope that helps!

Yeah, Asos runs a little big if I remember rightly. Good stuff tho.

Agree with pps. In fact, I found most of my maternity wear ran a little big, but that might be because I already had a big tummy so maternity wear in a size or two down actually fit my skinny limbs and huge belly blush.

I really liked Seraphine and they used to do some good sales. I bought a good few things from there. Also got my favourite maternity jeans from Debenhams.

I was a 14, wore a medium in jojo, large in h&m, asos true to size, found purpless dresses didn't fit me, the waist was too high and not enough boob room.

I have some purpless stuff, and mostly it fits well (size 14, 38dd boobs) but occasionally you have an odd sized item that is randomly huge. For the price though it's great!

April I think I went a size down in tops and dresses - I did for all my maternity stuff - and was fine (I was probably more of a 12/14 too at the time but would have bought 10/12 I think). I never bought any trousers from there, so can't comment on those.
