@Jilliebean1:  All I did was buy a size up from what normally buy for clothing.  Personally I couldn’t justfiy the cost of plus size maternity clothing.

I went to Sears because I didn’t want to spend a ton on temp clothing. I got two pairs for 60.00.

Kohls online. They are a cheaper version of motherhood and I love them. I am a size 18/20 and the 1x fits good and looks like real jeans.  Try jcpenny online too.

My jeans were Thyme. It’s the Babies R Us brand. Watch for sales. I was there yesterday buying clothes for my sister-in-law and everything was 70% off.

I got a plus sized pair from Old Navy when I was down in the states. 


To be honest, buying plus sized maternity clothes is a pain in the ass. Now that I’m in my 32nd week, I have decided that the best purchase I have made was a button extender ( Now, I was surprised that there wasn’t fabric with it to cover the zipper area. This was rectified by using the totally useless to this point Motherhood Maternity belly bands I bought when I found out I was pregnant (, or just wearing long tank tops to cover the area.


So, for an investment of about $40 ($30 for two Motherhood belly bands and the button extender), I have been using my pre-pregnancy pants. The only maternity pants I have is one pair of dress pants and two pairs of jeans (Old Navy, and then a pair by George I bought at Value Village/Savers), that I bought at the beginning.

I usually wear Gap jeans so I just bought the Gap maternity jeans and they are amazing!  They look exactly like their regular jeans and are so comfy.  I’m on 14W so I don’t need them yet but I’m excited to start wearing them when it’s time!  Good luck!

I bought a pair of Gap Long and Lean maternity jeans and absolutely loved them, wore them practically everyday.  I had an underbelly pair from old navy that I liked too but as I got farther along the full panel ones were much more comfortable for me. Also Gap had quite a few pairs in the clearance section of the store at the time so I snagged a pair for like $15.

I got some XXL ones from Thyme Maternity that I really liked. (I agree about Motherhood Maternity, I hated their jeans).

I tried Old Navy, but found their sizing was stupid. I’m an 18 and their 18 fit like a 14, it was frustrating.  Then once I discovered maternity yoga pants I lived in those instead LOL
