Maternity Clothes advice needed


Hi all

My clothes, particularly jeans, are getting a bit tight now (I'm 16 weeks) so I was going to try some maternity ones. Couple of questions please:

1) Is it dangerous to the baby to wear tight fitting clothes?
2) Do the maternity clothes last the whole 9 months? So if I buy some now they stretch or do I need to keep buying new ones?
3) Any good ideas for where to buy?

Thanks in advance ladies

Most clothes should last the distance. Topshop and New Look do great jeans.

ive brought alot of scond hand stuff of ebay, as people dont wear the things for long anyway. But peacocks do a good basic range, new look do nice bits, DP's also. Ive brought some things just one clothes size up. Ive also invested in some bump bands (these where from new look 10 for 3) which u can wear ur normal trousers undone with the band to hold them up. Ive brought some size 10 tops in maternity and theyre already too small, they where from asos.com, altho i love there stuff and would reccomend them, just maybe buy one size bigger happy shopping xx

Next also do some nice clothes including jeans...I'm not sure if it's dangerous but it certainly uncomfortable! x

I was never sure whether it was bad to have a tight waistline, so I started wearing maternity stuff when I was around 11 weeks; I had a lot of bloating though Maternity clothes are supposed to last you the entire pregnancy, and you're supposed to shop for the size you were pre-pregnancy. Though obviously if you've put on weight you might want to shop for the next size up...

I normally find good stuff in Blooming Marvellous, ASOS (online), Mothercare, H&M, New Look...

Debenhams have hardly anything, and I coulnd't find a single maternity item in M&S

1) Tight cloths, not sure of the harm to the baby but for you it could be possible to get infections down below as with anyone pregnant or non pregnant and it makes you miserable. if moneys tight you can get belly bands or those belly belt combo kits to make your jeans last a bit longer. I myself by passed those lol My friend used belly bands her whole pregnancy but she's a really tiny gal anyways.

2) I keep getting told its good to have at least 2 outfits for each trimester but I dono, its my first time. My one friend mentioned how she just bought a few outfits and they fit her almost to the very end till the legs got tighter and she went to dresses. I was lucky enough to have my sister and 2 friends donate cloths to me. They all are different sizes so I have enough for any size I become. So far I bought 2 pairs of maternity jeans in my normal size and 2 shirts from the non maternity plus size...

3) I live in the states so I am not sure if you have a target or motherhood near you. My sister recommended to just shop for plus size tops rather then maternity ones.

asda and new look do a great range. Try getting over the bump elastic rather than side elastic though as the side elasic fall down!
