Hi All,

I'm doing some research into the lack of maternity clothing for taller women. I'm 6ft 1 and although in the last few years there has been an increase in tall ranges on the high street, I still think there is a real lack of tall maternity clothing.

I have put together a small survey and I would love to hear your opinions and experiences on the matter. Its only 10 questions so will be super quick.

If anyone has any comments or opinions on this subject it would be great to hear from you.

Done! Massive personal bugbear. No, LTS, I do not want some black polyester boot cut trousers.

H&m is cut quite long and asos tall is ok, but what's with all the floral and frills? I would love some nice clean lines, natural fabrics and some work wear at rwasonable prices. Or would have loved! Pregnancy days are over...

Thank you so much!
That's really helpful. I thought the same thing so it's good to hear someone else saying it too!

I was really surprised by LTS. How have they got only two maternity items?

I live in Next and New Look outside of work but am really rotating the same few items.

I have some black over bump work trousers (Next) which could do with being a couple of inches longer but will have to do.

H&M are nice but limited and I still can't find long enough jeans/trousers.

I think topshop have a limited range.

Finding a tall maternity coat has been virtually impossible.

What a bloody nightmare this has been. I live in new look leggings and any dresses I can fin which means I have a total of 5 outfits, drives me mad!

Managed to fin a pair of jeans in H&M that skimmed the ankles, better than 2 inches above them. Bought a size 14 for comfort (pre pregnancy size 10) and they are TINY worn once, cried that a 14 don't fit and binned them - back to leggings, I hate leggings angry

Asos Tall do maternity.
When I was pregnant 14 years ago, LTS did one pair of black trousers and one pair of jeans. Tall Ranges were non existent.

Hi OP,

We're just sending this over to our NFP topic now.

It seems like there are bits and pieces out there but you have to do a lot of searching!
