Motherhood has stuff. You could also check Walmart stuff. I lived off of motherhood maternity and thrift store stuff. And even just bigger clothes. I am a big girl and didnt have issues finding stuff. Jc penny has maternity pants I loved too.

I was the same way! I had to buy stretchy capris from Fashion Bug and Lane Bryant and I would also use a hair tie to hold my pants up! You can buy a belly band separately, then you can wear your regular pants longer. Tank tops were lifesavers! Just try to find stretchy shirts, I found some at Sears that lasted my whole pregnancy (size wise) and they weren't ugly! You could try motherhood maternity but a lot of the plus size clothes are super expensive and not worth the money honestly. Good luck!

If you are desperate, Motherhood maternity has cute stuff most of the time.
However, I like to not spend crazy amounts of money on clothes I can only wear for a short amount of time, so I hit up eBay and seriously SCORED.
I wound up getting like 9 shirts for like 45/50 bucks grand total (two separate sellers). SO worth it. Just watch for Motherhood items, or Duo Maternity items. Anything else labeled "maternity" without a brand name I find fishy.
I'm a 3X, btw, and Motherhood Maternity/Duo Maternity 3X's fit just right.

idk what size you are but I was a 14 (idk if that's "plus" size or not or if you're thinking more towards the 20's) but I got clothes at old navy and they were actually a little big :?

Old navy has plus size maternity, that's where most of my maternity clothes come from. I'm a size 16, but I've seen them in the 20s there. Oh and their stuff runs big too, especially pants. Size 16 from there are huge on me, I buy them a size down.

I did not buy any maternity clothes with my last pregnancy I just bought a size up. I got stuff at Lane Bryant and Old Navy. Old Navy does carry some larger sizes in maternity online.

Look online at Walmart , Target, JC Penny, Old Navy,and E-bay. I also looked at local resale stores and found clothes . Some of the kids resale stores carry maternity clothes.

When I went to Sears to buy maternity shorts, they had plus size.
