Hi Lesley,
There are a couple of good sites that the researcher missed out on.

Precious Cargo have a large range of maternity clothing in up to size
28. However, they advise that there is a 15% surcharge for theseitems,
and that as they are custom made they are purchased at your own risk.

For supportive pregnancy bras and nursing bras after the birth, try

One informative website I looked at ( pointed
out that it may not be necessary to have an entire wardrobe of
maternity clothes; plus-sized fashions tend to have elastic waists and
other features that may allow them to be worn for most of the
pregnancy (perhaps purchasing a larger size than normal). This is a
link with lots of information for plus size pregnancies. Be sure to
check out their "Resources for the UK"

(If you decide to go the non-maternity route, a good list of
plus-sized clothing retailers in the uk is listed below.)

An American website with information on plus size pregnancy:

I would avoid Mothercare as a pair of their maternity trousers quickly
wore out, and they refused to give a refund.

Have just seen this message and although it was typed a couple of
years ago(!) I thought I'd mention to anyone that's reading ....
another site to try out (I think they're new) is - they're clothes are different to the
usual you find .... definitely worth a try if you want something a bit
more formal - say for a party or wedding.
