I cannot find any maternity clothes to fit me and am starting to feel desperate.
I have a small frame and a lean build. I am a size 6 (US size 0) but even pre-pregnancy, size 6 is often too big for me. The only brands small enough for me are Kookai, Scanlan & Theodore, Sass and Bide and (embarrassingly) Forever New and Supre. Even though I am skinny, I am too tall for 'petites' ranges.
Now that I'm pregnant I don't know what to do. The problem is that nowhere seems to stock size 6 maternity clothes! I'm nearly 14 weeks and my boobs are bigger and my tummy is showing. I really need some maternity clothes.
I have tried the following shops and their smallest sizes are too big: Ripe Maternity, ASOS maternity, various brands from Queen Bee, and Topshop maternity. They all start at size 8, not size 6.
A friend suggested that I just non-maternity clothes in a bigger size but this doesn't work at all - the problem is that even a standard size 6 is still too big on me as even with a pregnant tummy my legs, shoulders etc are still the same size!
People say I am lucky to be thin but it is actually a nightmare trying to buy clothes and I wish I had a bigger frame.
Is anyone else out there a size 6? Where are you buying your clothes? I'm at a loss as to what to do.
