  • there comes a point in size where maternity clothes are just no needed... A friend of mine is a size 22 and did not buy any maternity clothes just larger sized. She never had a pregnant belly. I'm not being mean it's just how it is. when you are large being pregnancy doesn't change your shape much. It just makes you a little bigger.

  • there may not be any "real" plus size maternity clothes out there because typically women that over over size 18, don't typically "show" for pregnancy, so there really isn't a demand for them.

  • Lane Bryant, maybe Old Navy. Also, try Motherhood Maternity.

  • I was a size 20 with my first and I mostly just bought larger sizes. They have 3X at mother hood and that fit me so I have no idea about anything larger than that. I would just buy cute dresses that flowed, tunic style tops and elastic band pants and skirts in larger sizes.

  • You can find some online if you look really hard but you will not know how it fits until it gets there. The best solution is to just buy bigger clothes. 'Big' Mothers do not really 'show' so there is no need to even make such clothing.
