help me find + size maternity clothes

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
i have a friend who needs to locate some plus-size maternity clothes, and she is not web savvy so she turned to me for help.
i know my mothering buddies have got good resources, so list 'em for me!

The plus sized pregnancy site has some links.

There are some stores that sell plus sized maternity clothing. I'm pretty big, but I can wear some of the stuff that a friend lent to me. Motherhood has stuff up to XL, I don't know if it goes any higher because the Motherhood where I used to live did not carry anything plus sized. You can get plus sizes online, however.
JC Penney has plus sized maternity stuff. I got something from a catalog as the sizes in my local store only went up to a size 14.

Someone else posted a link to Maternity Mall.com, and that is helpful. There are links there to Motherhood Plus sizes and IMaternity plus sizes as well. http://maternitymall.com/

I just want to second that JC Penney has some things. Depending on when you're pregnant, you may be able to get away with bigger regular sizes.

motherhood.com has a plus size section, too.

Depending on where you gain weight, you can also buy regular clothes in a size (or two) bigger. I am 20 weeks pregnant (with twins) and lost quite a bit of weight in my first trimester (damn hyperemis) and haven't gained much back, so I am still in my pre-preg jeans... but I recently ordered a pair of drawstring pants and some tank tops that are a size too big from Lane Bryant and I still have lots of room to grow into them. I am obviously pregnant, and look more like I'm 7-8 months pregnant rather than 5 months... but in this pregnancy, I have only grown a belly. In my first, I got bigger EVERYWHERE else!

If she's interested in second-hand I have a ton of stuff that I'm done with (woohoo!) that I would send to her for the cost of postage.

I'm an 18/20, with the occasional 14/16 or 22/24 in my closet (I am amply endowed so need a little more room there iykwim). I also have stuff that ranges from L to 2X. Most of the stuff fit me or was a little bit big, which was good for those last couple of weeks. Some things I was given by a friend who is taller than me so many of the pants were a little long for me (I'm 5'4"). Several of the shirts she gave me I never wore, because they were a 3x and just too big for me. Does that help?

I'm looking for Maternity clothes as well.............. I just don't want to spend my money on clothing when I need it for a midwife.

I'm normally a size 8, and I almost ALWAYS wear pants only (jeans everyday to work)

If anyone has any easy care items they don't need, please PM me.

Thank you

Well, I'm about 5' 5" and a size 22/24, I think. So if you have anything 2x I'd like it. I have some things that a friend lent me that are XLs and they fit OK.

As soon as I hear back from Shoshie'smom's friend I will for sure send you anything in your size that she can't use. I have such a range of sizes, I'm sure I'll have at least a few things I can send you!

I on't know what size she needs or if there is a kohls near her but thier stuff runs big. I was able to fit in thier size large shirts and I am usually a 1x-2x for shirts (big ol' boobies. It drives me crazy trying to find a shirt that fits right. I just can't understand why people pay to have this done. ) There XL was big on me. I couldn't find a pair of pants to fit to save my life and I looked everywhere and was obbssesed by the end i would have paid any amount. I went up to like a size28 and they were all too small in the calf. And I am only a size 16 on anormal day (closer to a 14 now thankyouverymuch )
