asda. also did nursing bras last time i looked. and their sports bras are perfect as maternity bras and only £5!

the ones you've listed are all pretty horrible as I'm sure you've found out!
My best buys were from h&m, topshop, isabella oliver (super nice).
I also bought a lot in the states but that isn't much use for you.
tshirts and things from blooming marvellous and jojomamanbebe were OK.
Formes is OK if you have the shape for it (just have to try it on) and need good work clothes but v expensive for what you get.
Next and Mothercare are absolute crap!

Defo recommend H&M - i got lods from there when i was pg

I'm afraid I haven't got Isabella Oliver or Formes budget.

I forgot about H&M. Will check out Blooming Marvellous too.

Thanks, these are great.

i used dorothy perkins and next for staples (black trousers, cords,etc - next do a longer length, which i needed) and blooming marvellous for fab tshirts and quite nice dresses. didn't have much money though so didn't get much!

Stretchy velvet dresses from charity shops are also well worth checking out IMO.

Gap ( not sure if its in their shops or not but I noticed a lot of Gap maternity wear on ebay after I had my two)

I saw Red Herring Maternity at Debenhams yesterday. Didn't look at it though.

Found this list of links when searching for a website.
