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

    I'm having so much trouble finding any suitable tops or dresses to wear to work! I've got pants and skirts but can't find anything that is businessy enough, and I really can't afford to be spending $80+ on one top.
    I've been to target, Kmart, big W, mammaway, pumpkin patch and mothers choice, and all the maternity clothing is either incredibly casual or blouses that look like they were designed for a 50 year old! I'm really struggling to understand what everyone else is wearing to work during their pregnancy, I'm still squeezing into my uniform but at 25 weeks it is VERY snug so I need some new clothes ASAP! Help! Lol

    I don't know how corporate you need to dress but theres an eBay seller oxyd_fashion that has some nice stuff which I'm considering getting when my belly gets too big! It's all quite cheap too

    Asos & Next Direct have some more fashionable things.

    I don't need to be overly corporate, ie I wear flat shoes basically every day, and our uniform consists of a few different, but relatively plain, blouses, cardigan and vest... And for the life of me I can't remember what every other pregnant woman in my office has worn to work over the 3 years that I've been there!

    I agree on Asos, they have great maternity stuff & it's quite cheap, free delivery & accurate measurements for sizing. They have a sale on currently & I just bought 2 dresses delivered for $60

    I think I'll probably end up dressing a little casual, it seems to be really hard to find decent maternity workwear! The stuff at target is so casual

    I wore my usual work pants throughout my pregnancy & just got a belly band then went to supre/target & got some bright colored stretchy tops in a few sizes bigger and wore a jacket over the top & then added a funky necklace. Saved so much money & I have been wearing the tops still since DS was born 4 weeks ago.

    I refuse to pay the ridiculous cost of maternity clothes.

    I just used to buy a couple of plain black maternity pants, and just wear bigger tops.

    When I was pregnant with DS I had an office job, so I wore black maternity pants and usually a stretchy maternity top. It looked neat and tidy but was comfortable.
