Just wanted to sing the praises of Expecting on Gillygate! I went for a bra fitting shortly after having our little boy – so lovely and helpful! Fantastic friendly service going above and beyond – highly recommend.

Maternity wear tips from fellow Mumblers

Don’t forget to check out the Mumbler Nearly New Sales for maternity clothes.

KH July 2017

I tended to wear normal tops that I liked just a size bigger or skater style dresses with leggings.

HR Feb 2017

Maternity compression tights available from Boots help with reducing varicose veins.

KN Feb 2017

I found a lot of the maternity jeans too tight, so my mother-in-law kindly cut the elastic for me and threaded some pretty ribbon through them all so they could be tied looser as bump grew.
