View Full Version : Shopping help needed!!!
Can anyone help me? As I am having a shopping nightmare and am looking like tramp!
I really need some cropped jeans - would like them to be over bump, but not with that stretchy panel thing!
Also need a glam outfit for a big night out in town (summer ball!!) and would like to be able to wear it afterwards too as I am sooo mean buying matty stuff!
Ta - if I can't find anything I guess that I could wear a bin bag!
I think you might struggle to find over the bump jeans without a panel? I have seen cropped jeans somewhere but I cant for the life think of where it was, could have been Next?
i have some jojomama jeans (that I have on and am roasting!) that look like normal jeans and go over the bump - uber comfie and I am seriously thinking about cropping them myself if I don't pass out first with heat stroke!
I got some last year from Mothercare. They were OTB and had the elastic at the waist-band instead of a panel. They weren't cropped though, but you could get something like that and have them shortened.
Try ebay. I haven't got round to listing mine yet, but it's on my massive 'to do' list.
Must add, they were damn uncomfy which is why I'm getting rid. I liked the big panel jeans, and found a great pair in next that had a proper waist-band to go under the bump, so that they looked normal from the back, but a humungous jersey bit that went right up to under my bra. I lived in them.
I noticed a really large range of maternity clothes in top shop the other day - last year when I wsa pregnant they only had a few things but there's loads now. Saw some really gorgeous dresses - wrap style that would do for a night out and may fit when you're not pregnant. You could have a look on the website first.
I also bought stuff in Dorothy Perkins and H&M.
Something like this:
I have a pair of JJMB cropped jeans that don't have a panel and also a pair from Blooming Marvellous. Both have the elastic inside which adjusts iyswim. Would offer you them, but they're probably too big and I'm hoping I can use them after the birth (far too small at the moment :cry: )
Hennes (H&M) do great maternity stuff which don't have panels - but be careful coc not all of their shops sell maternity
hello all and thanks
am going to have to brave the hot weather and go shopping this afternoon!
thanks for the offer shamu - i am no skinny bean (if you wanna sell them pm me!)!! so they may fit and sound a bit like the jeans that i have now!!! and how on earth can you be too big from them!!! Good job your nearly there as I hate to think what you are wearing now!!!!
oh well - better put my feet up before shopping with a toddler!
M&S have started doing maternity stuff again and actually the stuff is quite nice and not too pricey - especially trousers
