I agree that Macy's a Herald Square's maternity department is good.
I haven't started shopping yet so I can't vouch for quality or selection, but I know there is a Pea in the Pod at Macy's in Herald Square. You can try Asos.
They have a free delivery and return policy and very good value. They have a good selection of maternity dresses. Jcrew also has some maternity jeans but I found when I got really pregnant last trimester I needed the over the belly jeans and Jcrew just had the extra elastic in the waistband.
I have also had a hard time finding stores that carry maternity clothes, but have has some luck with Nordstrom, Shopbop, Gilt, Amazon and Jcrew.
Rosie Pope has good work pencil skirts and carries DL maternity jeans, which you can try on in the store. I agree that Macy's a Herald Square's maternity department is good. Small but good quality and enough of a selection that you can try on and if you find a brand and fit that you like, you can then order other things online.
Century 21 at the downtown location opened a 6th floor "destination maternity" type store when DM closed. I have heard good things about selection but haven't gone yet - trying to make due with what I have from last 2 pregnancies. Gap had decent things for workwear and LOFT online only. You can use try. I would AVOID zullily and other sites like this because by the time you get the item it is weeks later or more and often doesn't fit.
The return policies are terrible too. One thing that helped me is getting belly bands in a few colors to extend the wear of bottoms and tops I already owned. If you get the right size, they help hold up your pants with the button undone. It also will appear like a camisole layered under your tops so you can get away with your current tops even if they are getting short.
This will work for maybe a month or 2 depending on how your body is. I also got bra extenders for my regular bras and only switched at 8 months into nursing bras.
If you can get a good sale, it would be a good investment since after baby you will need to wear these too for a few months. Of course it depends on how long your maternity leave will be and what season you are going back to work dresses are much more forgiving.
