Can't find Maternity clothes

So with my first baby, I wasn't working while pregnant. So I basically just walked around the house in sweats and t-shirts the whole 9 months. This time, I have a steady job in a nice restaurant, and I for the life of my, cannot find any clothes that will fit me. I don't really need them yet, but I was looking for a nice pair of maternity pants. I am a size 1 normally. (don't ask where the baby fits, I looked pretty funny with the first one)

Does anyone know of some sites or chain stores that have a wide range of sizes that would fit smaller girls?

Wal-Mart and Target didn't have anything.

Try Ebay. They have a good selection of maternity clothes that are cute and cheap.

Mama go to motherhood...  They are not expensive and if you're petite like me you'll find what you need...  I cannot find petite maternity pants anywhere and if I find them they are medium or large and I'm barely a small (they're a little big on me but its the closest I could find and I will be able to use them for the next 6 months)...

LMAO not only they dont have a wide selection but all the pants they have are way too big, as if every pregnant woman on this earth was a L or XL (nothing wrong against people on those sizes, ok!  just that I get frustrated looking for a small size and not finding it anywhere!)...  frustrated

JC Penny is where I got my work pants from.  Otherwise I know Old Navy has khakis and dress pants.  You could try Kohls.  Oh and Gordmans!

Usually if you go in the mall they have a store like Motherhood maturnity. Some very cute clothes and for women of all sizes and as mentioned by now I am sure ebay, I am not sure if the new law goes into affect on womens clothing too that does for children's items since it's supposed to be anything the children come in contact with. Also sometimes Old Navy has some also I don't know what your budget is. http://popular.ebay.com/ns/Clothing-Shoes-Accessories-/Women%27s-Maternity-Clothing.html

I am 4'11'' and usually weigh 110. I buy my maternity pants and shirts at motherhood and old navy. I buy size small maternity pants. I am 33 weeks pregnant with my second and I weigh 143. Size small is getting tight. My size small from motherhood still fits me fine. Before I was 6 months all of it was baggy on me even with a stomach. Now my legs and such have filled out. A medium in old navy swims on me. The only ones that fit me are the corduroy pants that are size small from motherhood. Size small shirts fit me fine still.

I'm a 00 before pregnancy, but my chest poses problems when it comes to shirts. I do not fit clothing from motherhood or anywhere that Iv tried on maternity clothes. It's not my bump, its the rest of me. Pants will be baggy, shirts will sag in the arms and be way too long. So I just buy the next size up in regular clothes, a medium, and voilla I'm good to go. Good luck!
