Clothing with bump support

Hiya, I'm looking for jeans, leggings and tights where the 'over the bump' bit gives you a bit of bump support.

The maternity jeans I have are second hand the the bump panel is all baggy stretched out. I thought this was how it was meant to be until I tried on a pair of blooming marvellous jeans and the the bump support was a lot more snug (but not tight), hugged me in and felt AMAZING! Unfortunately the only pair they had in my size were far too long!

So I'm looking for any other brands of jeans, leggings or tights that are good for doing the same. Any suggestions?

Haha I was amazed when I tried on my first pair, after I finally conceded that my usual 12s just weren't fitting anymore. I turned to hubby and said 'look they're skinny jeans! And they fit! And they're comfy!!'

Unfortunately hardly any shops seems to do maternity clothes in store which I find astonishing, but it's another issue. All of my maternity clothes have come from Mothercare, Debenhams and New Look. And Sports Direct - the only place I could find in the whole of London which did a maternity swimsuit.

The Mothercare tights are the most comfy tights I've ever bought. In fact I'm going to continue wearing them after I'm pregnant!

New look and h&m both do very good over the bump jeans/trousers. I just had to get new work trousers and I got mine from new look (h&m didn't have my size) I also got bump bands, they look like the bottom half of a t-shirt and add extra support too.

Thanks for the replies! I've ended up buying 2 pairs from H&M. They're pretty long so will need taking up but I'm happy as they fit really well smile
