Hi ladies, is there anyone out there who is a plus size?
im only 5 n half weeks pregnant but am realy bloated and my jeggings i wear to work are a size 18 and they r getting tight on my belly n thighs as im holding a lot of water right now... i have seen some maternity jeggings in mothercare online and was wondering do i get a size 18 in maternity or go the next size up??
any plus sizers out there who could give me some advice please?
Hello!! Im plus size (size 22), currently at 9+6, like you im feeling really bloated and dont think i can take my work trousers any longer, Im going to try and find some yoga pants or leggings with maybe a long floaty top, cant seem to find any plus size mat wear anywhere!!!! x
For now I have opted to just keep buying inexpensive, larger-size clothes.
I have to wear khakis for work but lucked out and found a pair of drawstring khakis in size XXL at Old Navy. They have a good amount of "give" so should work for MOST of my pregnancy. I wish I had known they'd work so well, I'd have bought two pairs on black Friday since they were 1/2 price.
Anyway, it's pretty tough. Avenue.com, jcpenney.com and oldnavy.com have plus size maternity clothes, but I HATE shopping online without being able to try things on first. Especially since I'm short as well as stout, it's often difficult to find things that fit properly, especially plus size clothes that don't just look like I'm wearing a tent.
hi jsh1980 congrats on ur little bean. OOhhh what are yoga pants? im wearing jupers at the mo and my black jeggings for work bt theyr digging in to my belly . i just dont know if to get my size in maternity or go up a size or wil they then be too big :S lol x

I actually am in this predicament myself. I'm pretty curvy with a slight tummy but I'm also petite. I have a really well defined waist (for now) and was in a size 18 pant (US) pre-pregnancy. I got a pair of size 18 maternity jeans from the GAP and I am loving them.
I have an interview next week and it is business dress code so I am planning to go shopping for something that can hide my bloat a bit better than the pre-pregnancy work clothes I have.
I'm finding though I've only gained 3 pounds I swear it is all in my chest. I went from a not-full E cup to a full F cup and I'm hoping it stops there because my back cannot take much more.
Hi, I'm normally a size 16/18, and my bloat has been so bad I finally broke down and bought a couple of early maternity jeans...the ones that don't have the full panel. Because the waist is stretchy, and it's really only my stomach that's bigger, I was able to go down a size 14 in the maternity pants. I figure they'll last me for a few months, and then post pregnancy as well. Old Navy has some great ones, and though their selection in store is dismal, I found a couple I liked. I also got a Be Band (like a Bella band, but cheaper and from Target) in a large, but it stretched out really quickly and now I think I will only use it later in pregnancy. I wish I had bought the medium.
