So as my bump is getting bigger, maternity clothes shopping is even harder as the rest of me is still size 6! New mummy thank you for your tip - unfortunately this doesn't work for me because non-maternity size 6 or 8 clothes are too big on my shoulders, arms, legs etc - the parts of the body that don't change in pregnancy.
I thought I'd share the things that have worked for me, for other girls in my position:
- J Brand maternity jeggings in size 24 (best fit I've found)
- Gap maternity tops in size XS - ordered these from the US and they were so cheap. $8 jumpers for winter! A bit big around the armpits but my mum will take them in
- Pea in a Pod - two of their size 6 dresses fitted me. Loads of their other size 6 clothes were too big, but they are worth trying.
