Skinny or straight cut maternity jeans that don't fall down or have a stretchy bit that passes your boobs?!

I'm currently 6 mths pregnant and have resorted to wearing the boot cut (I know!!!) mat jeans from Peacocks when pregnant with my 1st four years ago.

So far, I've bought new skinny mat jeans from both new look and mothercare in my usual size 12 but the constantly fall down over the day, get stretchier after just one day of wear and wrinkle behind the knees. The stretch panels on them come up crazy high too but if I roll them over the jeans fall down even sooner.
I've bought a couple of pairs of second hand under bump mat jeans too and they're also not a great fit.
I can't spend the next 3 months only in leggings... Help? I need stretch but not overly stretchy, not boot cut or flare (the hems just get soaked in the endless puddles round here) and not expensive if at all possible! Desperate! Thanks

I've got a few pairs of skinny jeans from H&M they are a bit stretchy and over the bump but not too high. Think they cost €25. Love them!

I loved my Topshop maternity jeans. They were under the bump as I didn't like anything over it. They were £40ish I think but I got every penny out if them. They were really comfortable and washed really well. I wore them from about 18 weeks all the way through to when DS finally arrived at 40+14. I had the indigo blue but they do different colours. Think they are called Leigh.

Don't buy jojomaman - worst maternity jeans I've ever owned. They're lovely but the jersey bump-band is worse than useless and they just slide down the entire time, even now at 8 months! I end up with getting really huffy with trouser-rage!

Yep, the Topshop Leigh ones are super snug. I found the bump panel didn't fit right though as I'm quite short.

I had two pairs from Mamas and Papas that were alright - not as skinny as I was used to - but they fit well once I had a good sized bump. One pair were over bump, the other under - the over ones definitely fit me better.

I loved my h and m mat jeans.

H&M super skinny or Topshop Leigh.

Yep, H&M super skinny for me too. I'm 34 weeks and living in them. BUT...I found they varied between colours. I have the washed black/grey ones which are perfect, but the exact same ones in blue denim were awful.

Next relaxed skinny narrow band

Another one for H&M. I loved them. But agree with PP about sizing. Skinnies were different to boot cut.

The £30 ones from H&M, made from thicker denim. Now I'm nearly 8 months they are pretty snug but no falling down and have kept their shape.

Have abandoned my Topshop Joni skinnies though as they constantly fall down!

H&M or Gap maternity I found the best.

Gap maternity jeans were my favourite. In fact I'm still wearing my under bump true skinnies 5 month postpartum because they're so comfy and look good!

Gap over bump resolution true skinny - I have 2 pairs and I've been absolutely living in them.

I found the only way to do this was to go to a big shopping centre (I went to Bluewater) and order in to store various maternity jeans in different sizes and colours. I then tried them all on on one day, and ruthlessly took back any that didn't fit. I found Next fitted me well - but there were a bewildering variety in shapes, even in the same sizes between brands. Good luck.

Thanks for all the replies!!

Motherhood Maternity jeans are amazing. American though so try eBay (they may ship internationally too)

Another vote for Top shop Leigh. I've had two pairs in both my pregnancies and IMO no others come close.
I find that Mothercare ones wash terribly and fall down, while Asos ones fit weirdly - huge on the bum and tight on the legs.

ASOS maternity skinny jeans but size down
Also Dorothy Perkins , size down by one size too.
In my experience of maternity jeans they seemed made bigger all over so sizing down meant they were nice and trim and stayed fitted.

I've found topshop ones to be the best, along with some maternity 'denim leggings' not jeggings.

I tried some from h & m and found them to be an awful cut for my figure. I also found new look ones to be enormous on my legs.
