Can anybody recommend great places for interesting and fashionable maternity clothes? Also, maternity knickers - do I need them? And has anybody found any maternity jeans that actually stay up? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
you know when i was pregnant i didn't waste money buying maternity clothes, instead i bought big clothes i liked in the sale so it was cheap and fashionable. then after the pregnancy and i slimmed down, i gave of it away and still wear some of it as oversized
I use Top Shop, Gap and H&M. French Connection also have loads of great clothes you can wear during maternity due to their shape but they aren't designated mat clothes. I've used bikini briefs all the way through both pregnancies and have never bought special knickers.
i would really really recommend getting a few things that fit and flatter you and your bump. I've got a couple of skirts from isabelle oliver, a few tops from jojo maman bebe and a couple of empire line dresses in the ghost sale. I am just amazed at how much better I felt wearing these rather than dps shirts and trousers.
