I had some over the bump knickers last time round from mothercare, they were great as they helped support my bump. They were not sexy at all though. I'm going to get more this time round, last time it was a hot summer (can anyone remember what that feels like?) this time it will be winter so I need the insulation!

I had 2 pairs of over the bump jeans - one in my regular size and one in the size up. I guessed the first pair wouldn't fit for very long so bought the next size up and was in them by about 30 weeks. Sadly, it wasn't just the bump bit that didn't fit - needed extra width on my bum and thighs too by that point!

the bump bit in H & M clothes is quite generous and feels quite supportive. Have you had a look there? Only prob with there stuff is, i find, it is made for really tall people so have to take stuff up!!

Can you have a look at this please? Tunic from Next.

It is classed as a tunic but looks long enough to wear as a dress with black tights. Do you think it will look okay? its not meant as just to wear with trousers is it?

you could always wear leggings under it if it seems too short

Sarah, sorry to be the one to tell you this but your tummy will not go down to its pre pregnancy size for a good few weeks after bubs arrives. I think I wore maternity stuff for a couple of months after Mooch was born. So maybe a good excuse to treat yourself?

Maternity Jeans and Clothes

I am having a mare trying to find shorts for my holiday in a few weeks. Has anyone got any clue where I could get some? I want something like cargo shorts and some three quarter lengths too. As it is, I'm gonna be sweltering in jeans!

I think M&P do a range of summer holiday clothes. Try also Verbaudet and JojoMamanBebe, just google both names, they sell online. Ebay as Polly suggested and have you tried charity shops?


Will move this into the maternity clothes thread in a day or two once its been seen here, then we can be all tidy!

Anywhere that has slightly more sunshine than here has got to be good! I think the weather will be somewhere around 20 degrees for us, which is just fine by me.

Has anyone else found the sizing in H&M Mama completely ridiculous?? I bought 2 pairs of mat trousers in size 12 .... I am always a 10 or 12 so didn't try them on as had loads of bags with me, got them home - way too small so yesterday swapped them for size 14s and they are still too bloomin tight - all my other mat stuff is 10/12 and fits me fine X( so I am off to get size 16s now!!

I have a maternity coat from JojoMamanBebe. It was in the last catalogue and the stuf fon their site now is spring/summer. I tried ebay, charity shops etc.. so I didn't spend a fortune but I couldn't find anything that wasn't huge on the shoulders or too small in the tummy or ridiculously expensive. The one I have is cut to fit a bump, fleece lined so nice and warm and was £40 which isn't too much to pay for a coat that will only fit me for one winter. They also had one with a pnel in front which was removable so it would work as a non maternity coat, thats no longer on the site either. You could try phoning them to see if they still have any in.

Swimsuit recommendation please

Now that I'm almost back in the land of living food-wise I am hoping to resume swimming and start aquafit classes.

However, my normal speedo swimming costumes are going to be a bit snug around the belly area and my holiday ones just aren't supportive enough. So, I'm going to buy a maternity swimsuit and wondered if any of you could recommend one?

I'm not lacking in the boob department, even before the pg blooming, so really need something with decent support up top. I'm also a bit of a cheapskate (:snigger:) so would like something that will do me throughout.

I detest shopping, especially for clothes, so any pointers much appreciated as means I don't have to trawl around lots of shops / websites :D

thankyou xx

Skinny jeans

Hi everyone, I'm only 10 weeks but can't do my jeans up! Can anyone recommend some good (and not too pricey) maternity skinny jeans? I don't like the look of 'over the bump' ones, I prefer low-slung trousers as I have a belly button piercing and don't want the waistband to rub.

thanks!

I have a couple pairs from Seraphine. One with a band under the bump and one with a huge panel that goes over the bump for when I get really huge. Not the cheapest jeans but they are really nice. Happy shopping!

Thanks Michelle, do you know if they're true to size? If I'm a 10 would I order a 10? That's the only problem with shopping online! I bought some jeans in Topshop today and luckily I tried them on cos I needed a size bigger than my usual.

As far as i remember i bought my usual size in my last pregnancy and they were ok but now i but stuff for my dd from there and i tend to have to buy a size bigger than i buy her from most shops. It might just be the childrens clothes that are made a bit smaller though. You could always buy two sizes and then send one back, saves you having to pay for delivery twice if you need to re-order.
I also liked Gap and mamas and papas jeans last time and they both do skinny fits too.

My maternity skinny jeans are from Gap. They are the over the tummy sort but I have found that so comfy and nice and warm in the winter, worth trying on to test I reckon. And no one can see the top bit with long maternity tops either!

I have found that maternity trousers are all too long in the leg. Should I get them taken up or do you need the extra length to expand. All advice welcome x

I got petite maternity trousers from mothercare. Cos I'm only 5'2'' these are just right!!

http://www.mothercare.com/M2b-Full-Basqu…767041&mcb=core

They do them in normal too. Also really comfy, the band over bump is comfy too. Got them at about 8 weeks pg and I still wear them as they have an adjustable band for tummy expansion!!

I am just over 5ft 5" so I think petit would be too short. They are fine with boots on but trail on the ground if flat. I got really comfy ones yesterday from mothercare over the tummy ones. I think I may leave them in and get taken up an inch. Thanks for all your advice.

Next do a wide range of maternity jeans in different leg lengths and at reasonable prices. The only down fall is that not many stores stock them but you can order them in store or online if you have a next account.

Gap under-bump maternity jeans

If anyone's looking for some under-bump maternity jeans, they have some lovely ones in Gap. I've just bought some and they're soooooo comfy, they have a stretchy band that sits under the bump - much nicer than the jeans with stretchy side panels. I'd really recommend them and am almost tempted to go back and buy another pair!

Bras!

Just thought I pop a post in about the new bras I bought yesterday.

M&S currently have some very nice, non wired, T-Shirt bras which come in a pack of two for £15.00. They aren't proper maternity ones but frankly they are much nicer and very comfy, plus, since I am mean and don't want to spend a fortune on new underwear at the moment, a pretty good price in my opinion!

They have them in black, white, nude, grey and a couple of patterned options.

Hi 2mums

I've got Hot Milk bras which have no under wire but are still lovely and supportive. They are more expensive than most maternity or nursing bras but if you search around the internet you can find a few websites that sell them at a reasonable price.
