    Ok so I go into my local town (Enfield) to get some maternity trousers as am huge this time.

    Enfield has all the High St shops & a shopping centre but all of them have stopped doing maternity clothes, New Look, DP's, Top shop to name a few. The only place is Mothercare & I really can't afford to pay their prices.

    I ended up in tears as was so looking forward to getting some comfortable fitting clothes. Everyone must've thought I was crazy as I just stood & cried.

    It just made me so so angry. Why can't they do small sections of mat wear? I seen loads of pregnant ladies.

    PS Anyone got maternity clothes size 18 to sell please send me a message

    hey hun, they all still do their maternity clothes.. (i know this because i accidently bought a maternity top in new look last week haha )

    mothercare really is over priced so i appriciate that, but i dont understand why it is only your retail centre that doest seem to stock the maternity wear anymore, i can assure you all others still do and you can also reach them online (albeit more hassle, not being able to try on etc) xxxx

    Thanks Fern, I know that they do them still in their other stores my bug bear is why not in my town. It's not small.

    I'll have to trek on the bus with a 16mth old to the town which does which is half an hour away which I don't fancy. I may have to do some online shopping :)

    Just peed off that they've all stopped locally as they did them about a year ago not sure when or why they stopped. :mad:

    I found excatly the same thing when I was PG, couldn't find anything anywhere!!!

    Do get yourself some bump bands though (like these: 3Pack Bump Band - Maternity - Womens | New Look) means you can wear some of your old (non-mat) tops, they just go underneath to make it look like you're wearing a longer top under :) and get a belly belt kit - I was wearing normal jeans the whole time, just used these to extend the flies a bit.... saved me a forune!!!! :D

    Is there an Asda near you that stocks the George range? My sis got a beautiful pair of maternity trousers there for about £8.
