What places sell maternity clothing that my wife would like?

My wife is pregnant. I'd like to get her a gift certificate to a store that sells maternity clothing that is akin to the clothing she normally buys.

She normally shops at places like J. Crew and Anthropology. Are there stores of similar style and quality that specialize in maternity clothing?

I would suggest Isabella Oliver for a start, maybe with some Shabby Apple maternity. Is that the right style for her?

Try Seraphine Maternity (online store) or Pea in a Pod. It's hard finding decent, stylish maternity clothes - good luck!

She might like Hatch, as recommended by Cup of Jo.

I don't normally wear much from Gap, but their maternity pants and jeans were by far my favorites, and they have some nice maternity dresses as well. LOFT maternity is another good option. Also seconding Boden -- it's probably the closest you're going to get to Anthropologie when it comes to maternity wear.

I am a fan of the Liz Lange line at Target. Decent quality that she can stylishly wear way after the baby's born and doesn't look like maternity clothes.

Another vote for Boden, if she likes that style. Isabella Oliver is either very drapey or form-fitting, lots of solid colors, and good quality. There are also maternity clothes on Etsy, which surprised me. Some are really cute.

Keep in mind that a lot of Anthro clothes will also work as maternity wear, especially for the earlier trimesters. That depends somewhat on what subsection of J.Crew and Anthropologie she shops... the billowy peasant-style blouses that Anthro has every season, for example, would work better than a corset top.
