    Not sure where you live, OP, but in Brisbane there are some great maternity wear stores that have good work clothes. My office is a pretty corporate one, and I found lots of skirts/ trousers that I could wear with my suit jackets, as well as smart tops.

    I also wore an existing skirt suit up until nearly the end, as the jacket was long enough to cover the zip on my skirt - so I just progressively unzipped it as time went on, and never took my jacket off!

    Default What do you wear to an office job while pregnant?

    Thanks for the suggestions, I forgot to mention that I've been looking in non-maternity stores too, and everything that might be ok for work is that stupid fashion of short at the front and long at the back - meaning it wouldn't even cover my belly button lol!
    I've had a look at Asos, next direct and top shop, they have awesome winter stuff but I'm getting hot so easily that I'm looking for short sleeves or REALLY light long sleeves, so unfortunately coz it's winter in the UK, their summer stock is limited :-( I've already told hubby that our next baby will be a winter baby - so much nice knitwear that I can wear!

    Default What do you wear to an office job while pregnant?

    I usually wore black maternity pants or skirts, teamed with a stretchy top and a little cardi, or sometimes a maternity top. I was at my biggest during the summer months. My office isn't overly corporate though, no one wears a suit.

    When I had a small bump in winter I still managed to wear button up shirts .

    Most of my stuff was just Target or Kmart.

    I can highly recommend a spring baby (DD was October), it's perfect . I fell pregnant in January, was at my biggest during the coldest time and it wasn't warming up too much at all in October so I never felt too hot.

    So much better than DS's pregnancy (born in Feb), was so hot and uncomfortable!

    I work at a private school and have same trouble!! All my tight, high wasted skirts and dresses just feel so tight and I only have 4 wks of wrk to go so refuse to buy new clothes. I have bought nice target stuff (slightly looser stuff) like blouses, satin tops, blazer and cropped jacket and wear my old work pants with a belly pants expander thingy. Still wear heels. Also jeans west maternity black skinny leg jeans I wear... Noone notices they r actually jeans!

    Default Re: What do you wear to an office job while pregnant?

    I've got the opposite problem, I've got heaps of tops, but no bottoms! We should get together and trade!!
    I've got some dressy empire wasted tops and some others which are just stretchy material.
    However places like ozsale or brandsexclusive often have great sales on maternity wear. Here are some links to join
