I'm a 22/24 on top and a 18/22 ish on the bottom (depending).

I've been looking for cute maternity clothes in my size since I'm starting to show...

Any suggestions?

I have had success at Old Navy and Target. I heard Lane Bryant just came out with stuff but I haven't checked it out. A lot of times you can wear regular shirts with maternity pants because plus size shirts are built longer by nature.

I am an 18/20 and have found cute things online at Motherhood Maternity and also JC Penney. I have found both to fit just fine going by my regular 18/20 size.

I went to Motherhood outlet today where I got my clothes in previous pregnancies. BLAH. I really don't like that store. : I have so far purchased pants from Lane Bryant maternity online and LOVE them! I need to get some shirts now, too, since I've realized that I'm NOT going to be able to make do with Motherhood.

I had been wearing a 22 or 24 (generally) in pants and found the 24s to be WAY too big and the 22s to be just right. Of course I was also losing weight and exercising so my shape was changing. But that's my experience with their sizing!

I just saw that Lane Bryant carries maternity clothes now.

Mom of a 7 yr old, 4 yr old, and 1 yr old. Wow. How did that happen?

I love my Lane Bryant maternity clothes. The pants are so cute and they fit very well with lots of room for belly growth. I love that they fit perfectly all over just like my non maternity jeans do (those are from lane bryant too). I actually look look cute this pregnancy and have clothes that fit.
