If you are okay with resale clothes, www.maternityresale.com carries small and extra small items.

Try Khols or Ross. I'm 31 weeks and am still on the small side for maternity pants because my belly isn't big enough to hold them up believe it or not. Size small is baggy still baggy on me. I bought 2 cute shirts in Khol's yesterday (they are even having a half price sale this week) their clothes run a big bigger then Motherhood I have noticed.

Hey try Gap maternity or Old Navy maternity online! They are great because you can order sizes 0 2 4. I just hit 140lbs and I ordered a size 2 in gap maternity jeans and they fit nice! You would have to try the 0, they both have cute shirts also! Good Luck and congrats!

Old navy maternity and Gap Maternity are really good!!! I had that same problem and found a few good tops and pants that actually fit. Wow, Pants were my big problem because they were all sooo big, even the smalls were too big. I would say most defiantly your best bet would be to buy online. Shopping online and buying my maternity clothes online has been the best thing for clothes since I starting growing. Good Luck and Congrats

I feel the pain! I had a hard time finding shirts because my chest is large to begin with. If you'r finding the shirts are too large and don't fit right up there, then try looking in regular areas for shirts, you can find some cute ones where the bottom is longer and looser (seems to be a popular style right now). Post-Pregnancy I got some nice ones at Kohls, target, and wallmart, that I'm wearing this time around. WHen you try them on, just push out the belly a little extra to see how long it may fit.

Have you tried talking to the people who work at Motherhood maternity? When I went I found them very helpful in finding me the right shirts that actually fit, as well as giving me suggestions on where else I might try.

Mimi Maternity and Pea in the Pod have darling clothes...I worked at one of their stores while I was pregnant with my first...They are a little pricey, but if you just need a few things AND you are as small as you say, you will LOVE what they have.

If you have a Ross nearby, they have maternity stuff for rediculously low prices (just bought two shirts today, one for 8 bucks, the other for 9!) I am only 17 weeks so most maternity clothes are too big still, but my preprego shirts are not fitting at all (already went up a size and a half bra, and my belly is popping out too) so I have been looking at regular clothes that I would buy, just going up a size (one of the shirts from Ross was a Jr's shirt, I just got a medium as opposed to a small tha I'd usually wear and it firt perfectly). Look for shirts that are long. Other suggestion is stretchy t's, you can find them at Target or Walmart, and even Old Navy has some pretty reasonably priced stuff and they have a good clearance too.

Honestly... you're that far along... don't waste your money on maternity. Baggy works. But if you really want to spend... Target has a few things, Wal-Mart has a really little selection... I also recommend second hand consignment stores. There is no point in spending a butt load of money on your clothes. I started wearing maternity clothes at week 16... you are so lucky!

I'm having the same problem! I'm at 21 weeks and only just am beginning to show, but up top is a whole other topic! I have found that the maternity long sleeve layering t's at target from Liz Lange are large and stretchy, so that has been working well for me, they also come in nice colors!

I am a large DD right now, and feel your pain! (my husband loves it, and I don't, lol) Try consignment shops so that you don't have to spend a lot of money. But Old Navy has some great stuff, as well as Target. Both stores have regular sales, which has been a big help to me. You can also try Khols. I have found some really cute stuff there.

Target has a really good selection of maternity stuff online. Their Liz Lange brand seems to run a size smaller than my prepregnancy, so maybe they'll work for you. Old Navy also has a good selectiong and their maternity is pretty true to prepregnancy size. Another option would be buying regular clothes, or at least your shirts, but go up a size or two and try things on before you leave the store.

I got most if mine from the Goodwill. They had plenty from stores with tags still on them. Meijer has some cute ones too.

I'm only 8 weeks right now, so I haven't had to shop for maternity clothes yet. But I know several other women in my area that are farther along and they have suggested that I check Target and thrift stores once I get to that point.
