Where to find maternity slacks for work

Sheesh, I've looked everywhere for decent maternity slacks for my daughter (almost 12 weeks) to wear to work. I wanted to get her a couple of pairs of slacks for Christmas but can't find any. I've tried JCPenney's, Kohl's, Target, and several places on line. I'm looking for size medium black slacks (she's 5'6) and you'd think they would be easy to find but they aren't! Any ideas?

I remember some shop at the mall that was pretty reasonably priced,  but I can't remember the name of it.  Also, I maxed out my "regular" wardrobe by using rubberbands on the buttonhole and stretched to the button with longer shirts.  :O  I am wondering if you might find them on ebay, too.  I see alot of women wearing "regular" dresses, too, especially the ones with stretchy fabrics.  Letting your "bump" show seems to be very "in", very different than when I was pregnant.

I also wonder if you could find some at second hand shops, when you consider that some women wear them for a few months, and then never wear them again.  Just a thought.  Good luck.

I am going to drive to the city later this week to see if I can find any specialty shops. I would think that maternity clothes for working women would be easy to find these days but really am surprised at how little I can find. I really don't want to pay $65 for a pair of slacks she's only going to wear a few months but I may have to! Maybe she'll still be able to wear them with her next pregnancy.

I agree with FSN.... Thrift stores can be gold mines.
