So you’ve got back a positive pregnancy test? Soon enough the wardrobe you’ve been curating for years is not going to cut it anymore! But no fear – we’ve made our maternity wear Brisbane guide so you know all the options you have to find the perfect clothes for you!
Maternity Wear Brisbane Guide
There are many chain stores who have maternity wear lines. In some cases, these will be cheaper than stores that solely sell maternity wear. This option may also be great for you if you don’t have time to travel between several different boutique stores but would prefer to travel to a Westfield and have lots of options in one place. Some of the stores which have maternity lines are Target, Myer, David Jones, Kmart, Big W, H&M, Esprit, Jeanswest, Peter Alexander, Cotton On Body , Crossroads, Bonds and Sussan.

Online shopping is great if the last thing you have time to do is leave the house. However, it’s important to make sure you’re not getting scammed and that the company has a good returns policy if something doesn’t fit or isn’t what you expected. One of the best ways to make sure of this is to buy within the country, check their policies thoroughly, look at reviews (non-biased ones, not the ones on their own website). All of the stores above have online shopping options, but if you’re still looking for more options some of our favourite online stores are
Op-Shops, Second Hand Stores, and Facebook Market Places
Since, by definition, maternity wear should only be used for a short period of time there are heaps of people who sell second hand maternity wear. You can often find cheap maternity wear for sale in op-shops, second hand stores, or Facebook market places. Many suburbs have ‘mums and bubs’ groups or ‘buy, swap, sell’ groups on Facebook which can make the pickup process easier. However, with Facebook groups or any online stores remember to be cautious to make sure you’re not being scammed.
