If you are looking for High Street shops in Dorset selling maternity clothes then you'll need to be prepared to travel far and wide!
A few years ago many of the top High Street stores had a good selection of maternity clothes and nursing wear in store however most have now taken all their stock online so the luxury of wondering around the shops and finding a large choice no longer exists.
Online shopping is not for everyone, you have to wait for your clothes, pay for postage, stay in or risk missing the delivery person and then you have the palava of returning everything when nothing fits! Plus not everyone has the spare money to buy different sizes and then wait for up to 2 weeks for the refund if they are no good.
Please see below for a list of High Street retailers and some online suggestions.
