Their catalogue has jsut arrived on my door this morning. I am going to have to buy some maternity wear as I'm starting to feel the pressure in my normal clothes.
Are their any tips to buying their clothes? Are they good quality? Do I just buy my normal size?

Next is probably best for trousers as IIRC they do different lengths and you can get them online. They're also a bit cheaper than JoJo I think. Having said that, I had a few things from JoJO and was always very pleased with the quality and style and the service. I had a dress from there which I wore all the time when I was pg with DS (long hot summer of '03) and the dressing gown I bought with DS1 (winter baby!) was really lovely

MI - that happened to me last time. I've decided I'm not going to buy jeans atall this time, just too uncomfortable.
I bought a pair of black linen trousers in Mothercare yesterday for £15 reduced from £25, I think. They are lovely but I'm not quite big enough yet.
Oh and thank you carrie - I didn't know that!

I got some combat type trousers from there and also some loose black ones, they looked great in the catalogue but were actually sort of a jersey/tracksuit type fabric - I didn't think the combats were very nice in this (expected them to be more cottony?) and they wore out pretty quickly (didn't even save them for my next pregnancy) although I guess the material made them more comfy. Think I also got a bra from them but the sizes were a bit rubbish - not specific enough. Sure most of their jeans and stuff are pretty good tho.

I had some JoJo things and they were mostly good quality and comfortable. One pair of trousers shrank a bit though (after I'd shortened them ). I also liked Blooming Marvellous and Next stuff. I'd always go for a size larger if in doubt though, particularly with Blooming Marvellous. H&M stuff is very long BTW, my very tall (nearly 6 foot) friend bought lots of stuff there whereas I just had to laugh when I tried it on (I'm 5 foot). I could have worn most of their tops as dresses.
