This isn't the high street, but my local Old Navy used to sell maternity clothes in store, and not anymore! I've got some things in Mothercare, but I've found they don't wash well. Throw on this super stylish and great value jumpsuit and go. I'm a size 12 and tried on a pair of size 16 maternity jeans and they wouldn't go near me.

Related content by tag: I couldn't find shirts, tights, skirts, trousers all in plain black that would accommodate my plus sized frame and the expanding bump. I am so with you. Will be so sick of them by the time I give birth!
So glad at least my jackets still fit ish! Hi, I'm in the UK and have just ordered a bunch of stuff from New Look online and just had to hope for the best. It is totally annoying that no shops and I live in a large city seem to stock maternity wear in-store I haven't seen any ranges in store at all but I am only looking at a few low priced shops tbh. It seems crazy to be honest We've asked for some comments from the retailers, so will be interesting to see why they've stopped stocking in stores.
I know you don't get to try stuff on but brand new pregnancy stuff is soooo expensive. I've only found 1 pair of maternity jeans that I can wear so far and they were from Mothercare. I got no choice of style of colour because they were the only pair in store in my size!
I hated online clothes shopping before I was pregnant - now it's worse! We tried Mothercare in Inverness, but all they had was a few t-shirts. Definitely nothing suitable for a wedding. The few maternity dresses I've found look really frumpy as well, or at least they do to me.
I have a wedding to go to in 2 weeks and I still have no idea what to wear! M and S have some generous loose clothes and Asos have been great for me but these are online only. I've also bought maxi dresses from Primark that aren't Maternity but work quite well over the bump, especially if your wife is shorter than me.
I'm in Stafford and travelled to Birmingham the bull ring and none of the shops besides mothercare had a maternity section. I'd suggest online shopping, returns are usually free now. It's a hassle but if you can help your wife find something nice I'm sure she'd really appreciate it.
Finding a few things that fit ok or even well has made me feel so much better while dealing with the various body changes going on. Hey, thanks for the feedback. Yeah, my wife has picked up a few dresses in Primark too, but like you they weren't specifically shaped for maternity.
Problem with the online shopping was she left it a little late, thinking we'd be able to pop up to Inverness a few days before and pick something up.
Glasgow the day before the wedding and equally nothing. No worries and I know what you mean. My dresses are a little short but my husband likes them and his opinion is all that matters. In that case I'd ring around the Inverness stores and see who has a section in store. Alternatively Next have free next day store delivery, Asos do next day delivery and I'm sure a couple of other stores do too.
It is a little costly but might help if one particular site has a few different things she likes and can try on. In the US it's also a pain - there are a few stores that sell maternity exclusively, and a few that have small selections in store alongside regular clothes, but it's definitely limited. They all have much wider ranges online. I'm short and curvy and finding maternity clothes that work with my shape in real life is really difficult. Apparently all pregnant women are 5'5" and B cups.
Yeah, it's pretty much a nightmare. I don't want to spend a fortune on clothes I'm only going to wear for a few months, but I still want to feel smart and professional at work and stick to my pre pregnancy style.
I've got some things in Mothercare, but I've found they don't wash well. I would have thought this would be a key market for a retailer like Primark to clean up with a decent basics range of jersey clothes, jeans and some work wear? I just don't understand why it's a life stage hats so poorly catered for in terms of consumer choice? I might be pregnant, but I still have to go to work, parties, weddings etc so why is the choice so crap? From what I can gather they used to stock maternity, but stopped a couple of years back.
They don't even seem to have anything online now. I live in a fairly large town and while I don't need maternity clothes yet 15w I've been looking around to see who stocks any. I can't recall seeing any in debenhams, but it's such a pita to shop there anyway because of how it's just mini boutiques for brands. Tesco doesn't, but I've yet to check asda because it's quite a way away through bad traffic. Pisses me off that stuff is online only for maternity because it's even more important to try these things on!
The rest have all moved exclusively online. Mother care has nice things sometimes but it varies store to store. They seem to stock most of their nicer things online no surprise there. Just ordered a nice top from there and had to wait days for it to travel 4 hours to my local store from its origin point.. Surprisingly h and m has a decent maternity range.
I honestly do buy most things online because like you said there's a lack of maternity clothing here.. Even living in zone 2 it's still a pain finding maternity wear in store. There is a small Mothercare walking distance from me but it has a minimal range of maternity items.
I ordered most things online - taking a guess at sizes. FTM due Xmas day! I live in Plymouth and have found 3 stores that stock maternity. I live in jeans so wanted some but don't have the legs for skinnys, all mothercare had were skinny jeans. New look had 3 rails of maternity and I found the perfect pair of maternity jeans in peacocks surprisingly.
Their section was small but seemed practical. I know that's not gonna help your wife with occasion wear but with regular clothes if you have a peacocks give it a try.
Shopping in Plymouth is awful so after reading these comments i feel quite lucky to have found 3 shops that sell maternity i didn't think of trying the supermarkets, but i will.
Definitely seems that New Look is one of the best - although think you got lucky with the size of their range. Most of them seem pretty small. I went in a couple of months ago and they had one rail, then i went in last week and they had 3. They only had skinny jeans tho so i didn't get any from there but they did have a decent range of other things. For a nice dress I'd recommend Seraphine - a bit more pricey but they're lovely.
I know they have Leeds and London stores, there may be more around the country and I think they might be stocked in some John Lewis. My local town has a h and m that stocks maternity but the sizing there is abysmal.
I'm a size 12 and tried on a pair of size 16 maternity jeans and they wouldn't go near me. My local New Look also has a tiny maternity section but it's just basic t-shirts, leggings and jeans. I know you said she doesn't want to shop online, but ASOS has been the best place for me and they do free returns.
We're in the Highlands, so everything takes about 5 days to get here! That does sound like ASOS is the best bet for online in the future though. This is a huge problem in Canada as well, across all price ranges. I'm lucky that my workplace allows some flexibility with clothing and didn't mind that I needed to dress a little more casually than usual. I don't know what I would do if I worked in a more dressed up atmosphere. I've largely resorted to ordering several sizes of something online, with the intention of sending something back.
My wife did go into their Glasgow store, but wasn't too impressed. Mind you, that might have been to do with the pricing I thought a lot of it was quite frumpy. Not somewhere I'd buy a wedding guest outfit from. Their jeans are amazing though and the comfiest things I've bought!
Maternity clothes have never looked so good! Shop our pick of the best high street maternity buys online now. Trust us, being pregnant never looked so chic. Oxford Street was a bit more fruitful: Primark has maternity tights, good if you're on a budget like me - Nothing to be had in House of Fraser or Selfridges - Maybe M&S would be in less financial trouble in their clothing department if they stocked maternity wear. They had nothing in either location. Hello, can anyone suggest places on the high street to buy maternity clothes apart from mothercare. I went to a few shops the other week and although they do maternity clothes online I'd rather be able to try before I buy, save the hassle of returning things that don't fit.
