For your more casual stuff, Target has some NICE materinity stuff for cheap, IMO.

I found that the dresses at motherhood were sufficiently dressy for showers and that kind of thing, but am definitely having trouble finding more fancy stuff.  Like, we’re cruising next week, and I’m pretty sure I’m just skipping the formal nights, because I could find NOTHING remotely formal.  So, I’m curious to see what others have to say about this!

I’ve seen stuff at Nordstrom but thought it was kinda pricy, and heard good things about ASOS but also that their sizes run a little smaller than I’d likely fit into.

For something really formal, I would try the bridesmaid sections of Alfred Angelo or David’s bridal- they both carry maternity lines that could work as formal gowns as well as bridesmaid dresses.  You could also look for an empire waisted gown in a regular store, that would accomodate a growing belly.

I like http://www.isabellaoliver.com 

it’s only online unfortunately but the quality is amazing. The price is palatable if there is some sale going on… to me, it’s in the same price range as pea in the pod but looks so much better.

Have you checked out Asos? They have some great maternity dresses for good prices and they have free shipping. The only downside is that they are online retailers only so you can’t try anything on.

@nikkialys:  Good suggestion, I didn’t even think of these stores!

I have a formal wedding this Saturday, and I went to A Pea In the Pod and found they had a lot of choices.  I also used motherhood or destination maternity for all the baby & wedding showers I have to go to.

@baletrina:  Ahhhh! I was just talking about the bump friendly filter on Rent The Runway for a friend of mine. I wish I had remembered to suggest that for you. That Halston is gorgeous.

I’d try to get something on sale/clearance from Pea in a Pod. I bought an amazing dress from them that I honestly would wear now not pregnant too. I got a great deal on it at Destination Maternity.
