They weren't as offensive to me as Mimi Maternity, another chain maternity store, but I still hate this chain. The clothes are okay, and the prices aren't too bad but the "return" policy leaves a lot to be desired. Apparently they are sure you are going to buy something, wear it for 9 mos., and then try to return it, so they don't let you return anything! You can exchange things for 7 days, but no returns. If that weren't bad enough, they make you initial your receipt saying you agree to their stupid policy! There are enough options for maternity clothes these days (Gap, Old Navy, etc.) that you have no reason to ever shop at Motherhood, so don't bother.
