Plus size maternity

(4 Posts)

Hi, this is my first venture into style and beauty.

I am now 8 weeks pregnant and while my clothes still fit, I can definitely see they won't be for long if my boobs continue to grow blush

I'm a size 20/22 and work in a school. I normally wear dresses for work, rarely wear trousers but don't dislike them. Work is quite active and I prefer cotton over manamade fibres. I obviously don't mind elastics etc but I don't like whole dresses made out of polyester or whatever. I just end up getting so stuffy!

Does anyone have suggestions where I can look for maternity clothes? There are such lovely maternity clothes out there but I am struggling due to my size.

Asos have a good maternity range and im sure go up to plus sizes - i bought all my maternity clothes from there as the returns are so easy too.

Congratulations on your pregnancy!

I found some great stuff in Next, Dorothy Perkins, Debenhams, online on Yours Clothing and I got some great stuff on eBay that hadn't been worn. Hope you find some nice things, you should find plenty of jersey dresses at least

Thank you both for your advice! And thanks for your well wishes @littlepooch.

Asos only go up to a 20. Of I don't gain loads that will be fine, but I'm worried it might not fit around my ever growing boobs.
I will have a look at all of them and see what I can find. Maybe order a few things and try them on and see what I like.
