Aside from a small selection at Motherhood Maternity and going the pre-owned route (yay eBay), has anybody found a great selection of plus size maternity clothing, specifically business wear? It seems like anything out there is either jeans, yoga pants, or t’s. Apparently plus size pregnant ladies aren’t supposed to have a job/need dress pants? If anybody can shed any light on a good search spot, let me know, please. Saw a few limited choices at Kohls and Destination Maternity but, again, when it comes to work clothes I haven’t found diddly.

Old Navy has a decent selection of plus size maternity pants. You’ll have to order them online, but that’s the case for the vast majority of the maternity stuff anyway. We also have a store around here called Once Upon a Child that has used baby/child/maternity stuff, and there is a lot of variety in the clothes sizes offered. You might check your area for places like that?
I feel ya though, shopping for maternity clothes is pretty much a pain in the ass.

If you’re a size 18 or below, there are a bunch of places – Target, Old Navy, I think even the Gap goes up to an 18. Unfortunately for those of us size 20 and up the choices are suuuuper limited. It pretty much comes down to Motherhood, JC Penney (which has a cute plus maternity pencil skirt I’ve been eyeing) and ebay. Jessica London had some plus maternity business wear for a while, but it seems like it’s been discontinued. Keep an eye out on ebay, though! Simply Be also has some plus maternity, but I’m not wild about any of it.
I’ve mostly been wearing Motherhood’s suiting pants with either tunics or maternity tank tops, topped by one of my pre-pregnancy blazers (worn open) or one of those waterfall-style cardigans. I also found a nice black dress at Motherhood, and I can wear that for as long as I can fit into my non-maternity tights!
ETA: ThredUp.com has a small selection of plus maternity clothes. I haven’t found much on there, but it all depends on what people are sending them to sell, so I check back frequently.

RMBsbride: Honestly all I did was buy bigger sized than what I was in plus size clothing so for example if you are a 14-16 I bought the 18-20 size etc.

Depending of how “plus-size” you are, H&M online has some cute maternity stuff. You can also stalk Zulilly, as Ive seen plus size maternity wear there. Also check-out at Kohls online, and there’s always gool ol’ Target.

I’m a 2x size 20/22. There’s a few new options I hadn’t see before here that I’ll definitely check out!
I did get some great steals on eBay and bought a few comfy clothes from Motherhood Maternity. A few others above are new to me.
