nosreves - Thank you for posting the fit maternity swimsuit link. I have been scouring the internet for a suit that looks both functional and at least semi-flattering. That is one of the few I've seen that fit the bill, and it's (relatively) affordable as well. Yay. I am planning to be at the lake for much of the summer, we have a beach trip planned in late Sept. and I'm starting to bust out of my regular suit already. I'm hoping for a good fit, since I'm in between two sizes and they didn't have the smaller of the two!
Last time I found most of my work & casual stuff on craigslist and at thrift stores. Craigslist was the best option for me - I got several lots of maternity clothes from local mamas and even though I only wound up wearing a small handful of what was in the lot it was still much less expensive than any of the other options, including thrift stores. I went into Motherhood Maternity once and will never go back. It was horrible.
In addition to regular maternity clothes, I have a couple of linen pants/long skirts that are "one size" with a really large drawstring waist. I know, they sound hideous but really aren't. Those should last throughout pregnancy and are quite comfy.
