I don't understand them!!

I've just had a pair delivered from the catalogue. I thought that with maternity clothes you are meant to choose your normal size... so i got a 14 and they are huge!!!! The legs are sooooo wide!! Anyone else found this?

I never bought next maternity stuff in the end. I bought a pair from them and they still didn't fit me at 40 weeks!

Thank God! I thought i had suddenly drastically changed shape!!!!

Did you try a smaller size nbg?

Nbg Mon 15-Aug-05 14:43:23

I did but they were more out of proportion that my normal size!

I found Mothercares clothes to be better with sizes tbh.

Thats where i got my last ones, they were brill but i threw them away last month thinking i'd never need them again!!!

Yeah, try H&M. I never bought maternity things from there but everytime I go in I have a sneaky look and there are some gorgeous things in atm!

What a pain in the bum it is searching for decent maternity jeans! Do designers think that the minute we become pregnant we want to wear denim in stonewash? Why does nearly every pair of maternity jeans come in such nasty types of denim? Also, as a dedicated hipster jeans wearer pre-pregnancy, I thought I'd only wear hipster type pregnancy jeans - however - now I'm seven months in, how uncomfortable are they!! Good grief, give me over the bump style jeans anyday! But they are really really hard to find. I've just managed to find a pair on ebay - £6!! bargain, and I can breathe again - yippee! What we women need is a decent range of maternity jeans, in a decent style of denim in a decent range of fits for a decent price. Anyone out there wanting to make some money, there's your market!

When I was last pg (ds2 is now a year and a half) some branches of Dorothy Perkins had pretty nice maternity gear, but I don't know if they still stock it.

Topshop have some lovely stuff in too.

when i was pg with ds2, i got a pair of maternity jeans in the sale in dorothy perkins for a £10 and i even wore them for a couple of weeks after giving birth, they were really good ones. I also had a mothercare pair which were nice but a wee tiny bit short on the leg.
