Plus Size and Pregnant- A roundup of the designers and retailers

I have been asked a few times from you ladies, where does one shop when plus size and pregnant. I understand it is hare shopping for plus size maternity clothes and designers. Honestly, I only knew of a few, but to really get down to business with this, I chatted up my very pregnant sister (she is due NEXT Monday!!!) and took to the internets! I wanted to see and understand, because if basic fashion for plus size women was hard enough, I could only begin to imagine where fashions for the plus size and pregnant women were!

So I asked my sister, who most recently started her own blog, Babies, Boobs, and Brains (Proud big sister moment!) as she is a mother of a handsome 20 month old, and is pregnant with my little niece! After the interview, I have gathered some stateside and international sites that ship worldwide for plus size maternity clothing!

Before you had your kids were you a plus size woman?
Yes I was, I was a 14-16 and a XXL! By the definition…yes plus sized

Shopping for clothes during your pregnancy, what did you find the hardest to shop for?
Hardest to shop for by far are pants….when your belly is changing its hard to find pants that work the whole pregnancy! Some fit for a month, some don’t fit until later

Where did you shop?
I shopped everywhere! Target, Lane Bryant, Old Navy, Totsy (Like a sample sale site for moms!), anywhere I could!

What places seemed to work best for you?
None and all of them…honestly I’d rather be naked or in sweatpants …but for need to present myself in public, I loved my old navy maternity clothes

When shopping did you shop Online or In Store?
Best results in store… I have shopped online and been upset at sizes that don’t work for my body type during pregnancy

Which online stores worked BEST for you? If you couldn’t get to a store?

  • Great post Marie! First off I have to say WOW I can’t believe she is due on Monday, seems like just yesterday we were talking about her being pregnant, I am so excited for your whole family! Secondly I have questions about this all the time and this is a fantastic roundup I will be referring people to in the future!

  • Love, love, love this post! I, personally found myself shopping at Old Navy the most for maternity clothes. Their plus-size maternity jeans saved my life and if I remember correctly, you could get different lengths too. I will be bookmarking this page for future reference however, because I had no idea about some of these. Thanks!

  • Thanks, Marie! Much appreciated. I’ll be sure to send you links as I find little gems (I hope) over the next 20-ish weeks.

  • I am in the exact same boat!! I am a size 18 pre-pregnancy and am about 7 months along now.  I tried out Motherhood, Loft, Target, and Old Navy and had BY FAR the best luck at Old Navy.  The other stores were hit or miss, and I did find a few things that were actually quite stylish, but Old Navy had the best track record.  90% of what I ordered fit me and looked good. 

  • I heartlily agree my childbearing days are over but i remember trying to get a nursing bra and it was as if larger sized women just didnt breast feed!! Seems as if nothing has changed in 11 years except perhaps our awareness and the fact we are demanding some action

  • I know this is an old thread, but I’m just reading it for the first time. I have been pregnant and plus-size in each of the last 3 decades, and it has become increasingly difficult to find nice maternity clothes! So many of the places I used to shop have closed, and I HATE shopping online! I have had some luck at Kohl’s, but not for this pregnancy.
