Hi can anyone help me pleeaasseeeee. I'm working and 4 months pregnant, I need to look smart for work but am struggling to find anything half decent to wear I don't want to look frumpy in the office and want to feel good about myself but I am increasing in size by the day! If anyone knows of anywhere to buy decent working maternity wear, please let me know. Waiting to hear from you all......

Theres mothercare,new look, H&M,dorothey perkins,mamas and papas and ebay None of the shops in my town have a maternity section but my work provided a uniform so i only have to buy day to day clothes so your better off in big citys or shopping centers, where you from? Im 4 months too and my belly feels like its starting to get bigger, no longer in my normal jeans lol

Such a tough call! My friend introduced me to Babes with Babies, I have the link somewhere..... http://babeswithbabies.com as I was in exactly the same situation! The clothes from mothercare etc were just not smart enough for work! The best thing is, one of the dresses I brought, this one http://babeswithbabies.com/search.aspx?SS=avalicious , is just as brilliant now, after having my little one! It can be tough as you have to weigh up the pros & cons of spending that little bit extra to get something smart & good quality but the bonus with all of the brilliant clothes I brought from this website is that I still wear them now & will do until they fall apart, mainly because they are not your typical 'maternity wear'! Hope that makes sense

Oh that's great, thanks ladies. Mothercare isn't really my thing tbh but I think I'll have a look in New Look. I've just checked out www.babeswithbabies.com and they do have some gorgeous chic looking work clothing. They have a fab maternity workwear section http://babeswithbabies.com/section_details.aspx?section=Maternity:+Workwear&LHL=y§ion_id=339 and I love the look of the Avalicious dress http://babeswithbabies.com/product_details.aspx?product_id=4359&ProductName=Avalicious§ion_id=339 and the pencil skirt too http://babeswithbabies.com/product_details.aspx?product_id=4395&ProductName=Maternity_Pencil_Skirt_by_Babes_with_Babies_London§ion_id=339, may well give them a go

I used to like Next website trousers. Dorothy Perkins, Peacocks, Red Herring at Debenhams, Ebay all do reasonably smart maternity clothes.

Morph maternity pants are comfortable and well-tailored. I now go to office smartly dressed in Morph pants and shirts and the compliments just keep flowing in

Asos do some beautiful stuff. Ive just brought a jumper from littlewoods, not a maternity one, just a massive size 14 tent sized jumper as I will be big over winter! x
