View Full Version : Plus size maternity

11-11-2002, 05:13 PM
When buying for someone else who is plus size do you get the same size they are in now or a size up?
Also has anyone been on any sights that they really love for 2XL.
One more question. Any ideas were to find a plus size coat.
My sister-in-law has been looking everywhere with no luck.
Thanks for all you help.

Most manufacturers suggest buying your pre-pregnancy size. But every company runs differently (far worse than in misses' sizes), so you really need to try everything on in 2 or 3 sizes. My strategy was to order whatever I liked at JCPenny (from the catalog; they don't carry plus size maternity in stores) in various sizes. Once I knew what size I wore in a particular style, I returned the unneeded items, and reordered the stuff I liked in other colors or just more of the same.

Here's a link to a site that lists several sources for plus size maternity:
