Usually maternity clothing is all lumped together, no matter what the size.  Oddly, in most department stores it seems to live next to the lingere.

That's been my experience looking through stores, although it's terribly dispiriting to be looking at what you think is plus - size clothing, and look at the tag of a lovely blouse to see Maternity. Thanks, Target.

Cause and consequence?

Explains why the department store I used to work at put the lingerie across from the baby clothes.

They just got into trouble for that recently

I'm plus size, and I've bought Target's maternity clothes. I'm apple shaped, so the shape works pretty well, and their maternity clothes are way cuter than their plus sizes.

Yeah, Target's plus size department is terrible.  They might as well put up a sign on the door that says 'No Fat Chicks' and be done with it.

Apple shaped myself. I've recently found that maternity clothing fits my shape better than plus sized shirts and blouses. Plus sized tops are too loose around the collar and arm area.

Being an Apple and 50+ years old I'm almost embarrassed to say that the most comfortable jeans that I buy these days are the maternity jeans with an elastic-fit panel around the belly but the legs are thinner rather than buying my waist size and having extra material baggage around my thighs, etc.

A plus size dress was advertised as a maternity dress, complete with a pregnant model, on Target.com  http://jezebel.com/funny-thing-i-just-decided-to-take-a-look-at-target-co-1495341306

Apple shaped and totally going to start looking at the maternity clothes the next time I go shopping...having something that doesn't slide off one or both shoulders to get enough fabric to go around me would be a nice change.

Just because I can sew doesn't mean that I want to sew every stitch of clothing that I ever plan to wear....

I have often thought of trying maternity jeans, as I have a terrible time getting jeans that don't give me clown pants

If I was apple shaped (which I'm not, pear all the way ;)), I think I'd buy maternity clothes, although I can see why it would feel weird. Maternity clothes are generally much nicer than regular plus sizes, and I suspect they'd fit better.

They will definitely make you look pregnant, though, because of the cut.  So not something I'd do if I were sensitive to "when are you due?!" types of remarks.  :)

Seriously. I went in there looking for plain tees to wear under sweaters and cardis and learned Target thinks I'm an XXXL, even though in every other brand I'm an XL or maybe a 1X if I want it to be roomy. Ouch.
