For those of you familiar with Old Navy Maternity - how does the sizing run? I read somewhere that if you are petite/slim, you will be swimming in a size 1 b/c they make thier maternity clothes HUGE.

So now I'm confused what size to buy. I'm definately not a size 1 in regular clothes - should I buy my normal size pre-pregnancy?

Thanks!

I've also heard that they tend to run big and I think a few ladies on here have found that too.

I've only had one pair of maternity jeans from them. It might have just been the pair I had but it actually ran smaller than my other maternity jeans that were the same size.

Sorry - that probably didn't help you much

Their sizes are really weird. I've gotten stuff that should have been my size that nearly fell off me because it was so big. Other times I've bought the same size and it was too small. I suggest trying on whatever you get. I won't order from them online because of their weird sizing.

Ive heard that Old Navy gets all of The Gaps reject clothes, so that might be why the sizing is so weird... just a thought.

When I bought clothes from there I had a large in shirts and they were huge, but you have to think if you like to shrink things to buy it a little bigger. I like to try things on because I never like the sizing.

old navy and gap are sister companies, but gap does not ship their poor selling products to old navy; old navy isn't a Ross or anything. I've never purchased any clothes (maternity) from Old Navy, but it sounds like trying on the clothes before you buy them is going to be best. gap, does however, run true to size

I bought mediums in shirts and pants and while they're big now (obviously), I think they'll work great once I get a big ol' bump. I'm usually a medium top and size 8 pants, if that helps any...

They do run huge. I'm a size 4 regularly and I was SWIMMING in a size 1 maternity from Old navy, even at 9 moths pregnant.
I wouldn't buy your normal pre-preggo size, not from then anyways. Try everything on and see what works for you
