Hi, just that, really, I'm a size 18 on bottom and there doesn't seem to be many bootcut or straight leg maternity jeans, which is what I'm looking for. I'm 15+5 and I've got to the point that my normal jeans are too tight now! I know most maternity clothes are online, was just wondering if anyone can let me know if there are some good jeans out there which I can order that are true to size. Generally like to try things on before I buy, but most shops have such a small selection of maternity wear and tell me there is more online! Any suggestions? Thank you! smile

I got mine from Next. I found the over bump ones didn't stay up so well, the under bump ones were really comfy.

Not sure i can give you a proper answer but I'm normally a size 12-14 and im fitting into small or size 8 or 10 jojo jeans. You might find their jeans in a 14 work?! Their stores tend to stock a few different style jeans.

Ah, brilliant, thank you, didn't think of Next! And I've never heard of JoJo Jeans, but will have a look now. Thank you, guys! X

Definitely Next over bump if you're carrying high. I ordered online for delivery to store, tried on there and returned what didn't fit as my local store didn't do maternity wink

Aoif, Good idea, thank you smile

Gap also. I'm a simile size by the sound of it and have lived in their shirt dresses and straight leg jeans this pregnancy. 39 weeks now, and there's not much space to grow but they've been really comfy til now!

Bon Prix are also quite good

New look and asos do good maternity jeans. I struggled tho as was between 16 and 18. Got away with some new look skinnies in a 16 tho.

Gap. They only do maternity online now, but they do go up into larger sizes than in store too. I think I had a pair of cheap jegging type maternity jeans from New Look that lasted me a while.

I'm a size 18 and found that Next and George have nice maternity wear.

Next over bump skinny jeans are great. I ordered about ten pairs as I wanted to try a few and I'm fussy but only planned to keep one or two. Returned all but two pairs.

Wow, thank you everyone for your replies, I really appreciate it! smile Time to shop!!

I got most of my maternity clothes from Bon Prix.

ThinkPinkStink Wed 22-Jun-16 16:21:27

I got a pair of size 18 overbump jeans from M&S - they only do maternity wear online, they are a lovely comfortable fit.

ElspethFlashman Wed 22-Jun-16 16:24:03

I found I had to size down in maternity jeans. God knows why. I think cos they've nothing to cling to so need to be tighter on the hips to stay up. Anything in my own size from any shop just fell down. So definately order the smaller size too.

By the way my straight leg ones from Seraphine were AMAZING. Pricier but worth every penny as they felt lovely and were comfy on the leg. I sized down there too but they go up to an 18 anyway.

Check the length though as mine are on the longer side.

Mothercare ended up being my favourite (which was odd as I bought them cheap in the sale just so I had a extra pair!) Next were also comfy, both over bump.

Gap here too - I'm a size 18 and I liked my overbump jeans. Get them on offer smile

Alichelseagirl Wed 22-Jun-16 17:41:48

Hi, I so far have an over the bump pair from H & M which are a perfect fit and a pair from Top Shop, I ordered those in the same size as my normal jeans and they are too big, I am hoping when my bump is a lot bigger it will fill it out as the material of the jeans is lovely and soft! From that experience I would say to order a smaller size in Top Shop. Good luck in your search smile

I had the new look ones. They were given to me but was going to buy them anyway because they had such rave reviews on here. They were third hand by the time they got to me. I lived in them, wore them up until a couple of months after ds was born and they still have wear in them!
