    The maxi dress is a really good idea…. besides my yoga type pants, that I live in at home, I bought several maxi skirts (lol on clearance or low priced online stores for plus size) and they are pretty much all I wear to work. They are comfortable and stretch with me so I figured they would be good through out the entire pregnancy and even afterwards.

    You have some good suggestions, however, I believe most of them work best for someone who is an apple shape. Could you provide some suggestions that would work for other shapes, for example a pear. I am a pear shape (size16/18 top and size 24/26 bottom). I know I’m going to struggle finding pants and bottoms that fit as I’ve already searched on plus size maternity clothing sites and most just barely will truly fit a 26 (and they don’t have any larger sizes). And I can’t fall back on the maxi dress solution until I can find maternity shapewear to keep my thighs from rubbing.

    Could you speak to those items? And are there any maternity stores you can suggest for anyone who is a 24 and larger?

      Hi Anthe! Thanks so much for your comment. I just did a posting on the Plus Size Mommy Memoirs Facebook page for you ( I hope you get lots of helpful feedback learning how to dress for all different body types. As for size 24+ I’ve heard positive things about Woman Within and there’s always online coupons you can use.

    I can’t tell you how relieving it is to see this website. I am nearly 8 months now and have struggled to find anything that fits me. It’s bad enough companies and clothing lines don’t make plus size clothing but so many stores are taking away their maternity clothes!!! Or they have one small rack that is meant for size 2. Seriously what are pregnant women suppose to do go completely naked???? While I love the motherhood store it is sooooo expensive, I had to get super creative with my wardrobe, I wish I had been big in the summer because I could get away with the dresses but alas I am having a Christmas baby. I currently have one pair of pants that fits me that I have to wash over and over again it sucks. I ended up buying a bunch of mens long sleeve shirts at a yard sale just so I can have something for the go to times. I had a couple of belly bands but I even outgrew those but thank you for making me feel better I needed to see this.
