    Default Corporate Maternity Wear?

    I've grown out of last pregnancies mat wear and with a different season to contend with, I'm needing some new work clothes to see me through to July.
    I've previously bought from Ripe and ASOS, but find Ripe to be average value, and ASOS quality quite variable.
    Looking for recommendations of where to pick up some well priced, good quality mat wear that fits corporate workplace? Can't get away with leggings, jeans etc and need more formal than Target/Sussan. Looking for a bricks and mortar places preferably, to be able to try on and look at quality.
    Thanks in advance

    Have you looked on The Iconic?
    They're online only, but they have free returns.

    I'll have a look at The Iconic. I was hoping for something in a store so I could have a look before buying, but there doesn't seem to be much choice out there.

    i’ve heard H&M do maternity gear but i’m unsure of quality. i guess the advantage is you can try it on and see it up close in person.

    no other advice as i’ve scooted by wearing normal clothes for as long as possible then switched to kmart leggings once my decjuba jeans stopped fitting but my work is tiny and fairly informal so as long as i look presentable i don’t think my boss is too fazed. how corporate do you need? like suits?

    I have a couple of things from H&M. Mostly casual stuff though. Maybe have a look online to see what they actually have before heading in store.

    My go-to shops were always Target and Jeans west. Occasionally they have something that could be worn to work, but again they’re generally casual wear. Can’t hurt to look though.

    Have you tried Myer and David Jones? Google Maternity clothes and your location I’m sure something will pop up. I think the shops that specialise in Maternity wear will be your best bet.

    I just purchased some things from Bae the Label online and am thrilled with the quality of them.

    Hi Turqs, not quite suits- I can get away without one for day to day wear, but certainly quite dressy. Stuff that need ironing pretty much!

    oh no. that’s the last thing you feel like doing when pregnant!!

    i used to dress up more when i worked on collins street (and was kid free and had more money to spend on nice clothes ) but these days i’m pretty casual. still neat and presentable but let’s just say my closet features a lot of knit fabrics
