    Default DECENT maternity clothes!!

    So where are you getting yours from? My local stores have the most bland, boring and old lady items in the maternity sections!!!!!

    I've had a bit of a look online but sooo much stuff is just shocking not to mention very expensive.

    It's at least an hour drive for me to get to my nearest Westfield so with 2 DD's it's a bit of a trek as the centre is H U G E.

    What are you best recommendations for places to get fashionable affordable maternity wear??

    Thanks

    Don't buy maternity clothes!!! Try and find 'normal' clothes that can accommodate your beautiful belly.
    Maxi dresses
    Black tights with short dresses or long tops

    I wore kookai dresses as tops and because they are stretchy material I still wear them 15 months later.

    I haven't found much in either target or Kmart . Got a few things. I've bought a lot second hand from gumtree and eBay.

    There is a big maternity place at Brendale too. There expensive though. They advertise under $50 but most things are up near the $40-$50 mark. I'm sick of ugly maternity clothes. Good luck

    Asos.com

    It's fantastic. Everything is super cheap and of good quality. I got twenty dollar jean shorts and three eight dollar singlets. It's free shipping and you can just send it back (and pay for local postage) if it doesn't fit/suit etc

    Oh and most of my stuff has been French Connection which would be five times as much in the stores

    I second asos.com I bought some maternity stuff from them in their summer clearance in November and it was free delivery and only took 7 days to arrive (which from the UK is pretty good).

    Try the Old Navy website. Same company as GAP but cheaper.

    bumpbabyandbeyond.com.au is pretty good. They have heaps of sales and if you're in Melbourne I think there is a store there too.

    I got a few tops from angel maternity when they had a sale, they look dressy but are sooo comfy as well! I love wearing them!

    I got three sleeveless tunic-style dresses from target which were good for work with 3/4 leggings and a dangly necklace. On cooler days I layer a singlet or funky tee underneath. Target also had good black maternity capris. I also wear a lot of my normal clothes, sometimes with a longer black singlet or a black belly band underneath to save accidental flashing. And luckily the current trend is for flowy tops and maxis that suit a bump anyway.
