Hi Nadia,

Welcome to Turkey and congratulations. "Mothercare" stores are one of the better chains for maternity clothing. They have about 10 or so stores mostly in major malls: "demsagroup.com/english/…magazalar.aspx". I suggest you visit the one at Cevahir Mall at Sisli. Simply take the metro from Taksim and exit at Sisli (second) stop. The mall is right there. You will like both the mall and the store.

good luck,

Trust me (from someone who has been pregnant twice) if you are stylish and you are pregnant, mothercare would be the last place to buy maternity clothes, plus mothercare in Turkey is so overpriced compared to London, where it is a very average store. Good luck in your search, hope someone who has personal experience will reply.

I would hope it is possible that some of us average people who must shop at average stores can also be stylish.

Mothercare appears to be at least a good start and if they maintain 10 stores in some of the fabulous malls in Istanbul, they must be doing something right,

It has nothing with 'average people' buying maternity wear or such populist argument I am referring to. Mothercare clothes are much cheaper in UK where they have hundreds of shops, in Turkey they position themselves as a luxury brand where their goods don't justify this. Their prices, accordingly, are in the luxury bracket.Their maternity clothes are notoriously Unstylish and when you are pregnant and trying to look your best in a difficult time it is not worth to pay such extortionate prices that would otherwise be very low end clothes. There must be hundreds of well designed local maternity clothes shops in Istanbul and someone who has shopped from these should hopefully reply.

Thx for your replies.. Actually we do have Mothercare in our country and I don't find what I want there. What I am really asking about is turkish (local) brands especially that turkish clothes are very famous in that. HELP!!! ;)

When I was pregnant and living in Turkey I couldn't find any decent clothes so I came back to the UK to get mine. Of course Istanbul will have a good selection.

I actually found some quite nice things in Mothercare ;-)

Nadia, Both GEBE and Mothercare have stores in the Cevahir Mall. So when you go there, you can compare the quality and prices.
