Can any of the mums recommend a particular brand of maternity clothing? I am a size 18 and am finding it hard to find styles that are both comfortable and flattering.

  • Ripe maternity or either target or big w – not in maternity but the normal clothes. Often way more comfortable than ‘maternity’ specific clothing. Unless u need feeding tops etc. Kmart also have a few good loose maternity clothes.

  • I’m the same size as you and I’ve found comfortable clothes through Angel maternity as well as Target. They are both pretty pricey but very comfortable.

  • Try “Ripe”. It was so comfortable and looked very flattering

  • yes target is great but also look for stretchy fabric casual dresses. i never bought maternity specific clothes really besides underwear so just have a look around. big w can have some great stuff even if it is not called “maternity”

    check out maternity stores nearby.

  • I agree – Target has a good range of clothing.

  • Thanks so much ladies for your suggestions. Much appreciated! :)

  • Last time I looked (admittedly it was awhile ago) a large Best & Less had some great clothes. They had flatering pinafore type dresses that you tightened or loosened with buttons at the side seams, similar to what some primary school uniforms do. It isn’t obvious until you get to the fully let out stage. My girlfriend had several of them.

  • Pumpkin Patch I found to be quite good maternity clothes, Target has some good ones as well and good priced.

  • I liked the pumpkin patch maternity wear.
