Know of anything nice OTHER than Motherhood and JC PEnneys for plus size?<br>
I checked eBay, too, but can't find anything. True plus size, like a 2x/22, not just an XL or XXL.<br><br>
I am going to the Prince concert in a couple weeks and want something stylish/funky to wear for a top. I might just end up getting something fun at Lane Bryant, even though they don't fit me that well during pregnancy.<br><br>
I'm sick of t-shirts and boring run-of-the-mill maternity tops.

I noticed that you were in Minnesota so I wanted to mention that the Sears in the Bloomington mall did carry plus size items when I was last pregnant-summer 02. You may want to give them a call.<br><br>
If you are not against pre-owned you might try Once Upon a Child. Also Old Navy on-line includes some maternity plus-sized items as well.<br><br>
Good luck.

Sears here sells + sizes too.<br><br>
You might want to try Gap or OldNavy online, they have +sizes.<br><br><br>
Also, you can do a google search for +sized maternity, you should get a ton of listings, but everything is big $$$.

Check out K-Mom's website for some good info on plus-sized pregnancy issues:<br><br><a href="http://www.plus-size-pregnancy.org/" target="_blank">http://www.plus-size-pregnancy.org/</a><br><br><a href="http://www.plus-size-pregnancy.org/firstindex.html#Plus-Size%20Maternity%20and%20Nursing%20Clothing%20FAQs" target="_blank">http://www.plus-size-pregnancy.org/f...lothing%20FAQs</a><br><br>
With my first pregnancy, I started off about a size 20-22 and found it hard to find maternity clothes in the reg places. Surprisingly, I found a gold mine at my local Goodwill store. You might want to try your local resale or consignment shops, and I've actually seen quite a few plus-sized lots on ebay. Good luck!

Just wanted to say that there used to be a Plus-Size Pregnant Mamas support thread here in the pregnancy forum. (I'm sure they've all had their babies by now, though.)<br><br>
They used to talk about stuff like this all the time!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> You may wanna start one! I am sure there are a lot of mamas who have questions like this, as well as other stuff.
