  • I was the same size as you and I went to local Goodwill stores and go tthe cutest stuff for a fraction of the cost. Most shirts were 5$ and pants the same price or lower. Also you can check local salvation army stores. Target sometimes will have plus maternity and I did find some clearence there that worked.Its all gently used at goodwill and sal army as maternity clothing is worn for such a short time. Good luck and keep looking, its very frustrating!

  • i agree. I got most of my stuff second hand. I will say though the secret fit belly maternity jeans from motherhood was worth every penny.

  • I'm same size as well and i got a few items from target online, the online clearance maternity selection is bigger online than in the store but i got most of my stuff from resale stores. Good luck.

  • I LOVED ROSS because maternity clothes there are so cheap and sometimes the XL was big enough to get on my butt and I also wore a 22 when I was pregnant. I also wore alot of long tank tops and gauchos when I was prego so I didn't buy too many maternity items though. Good luck tho mamma and congrats!

  • I wouldn't recommend Motherhood Maternity. Sure, their stuff is nice, but if you buy an on sale item-you CANNOT return it. There is nothing wrong with second hand at all-Goodwill, Ross, even Craigslist! Sometimes you can get an AWESOME deal at JcPenney's. I've gotten a lot of my stuff from there. Good luck!

  • JCPenny's jeans are great. Most of the rest of my clothes are just bigger plus size clothes from the clearance section at JCP or CJ Banks. (I can finally get away with those empire waist tops that always made me look pregnant when I wasn't - now they look just fine!).
