Does anyone have any ideas where to purchase longer length maternity jeans in a size 16

I'm 6ft and I found a pair of jeans long enough in H&Ms maternity dept. And they were only £19.99. And they were actually cut quite fashionably (apart from the Humpty Dumpty waist). Lived in them throughout both pregnancies and for a month after each birth.

my h&m jeans (black stretch denim) were massively long on me (I'm only 5'4" and a bargain at £22

Not sure how tall you are but i'm 5 8 1/2 which is quite tall and when i was pg a couple of years ago i got some great ones from blooming marvellous which did different lengths but i'm sure Next would do this too and possibly JoJo Maman Bebe but would definitely recommend the Blooming Marvellous ones as they were really comfortable.

Yes, h&m jeans are best for length, don't even bother with the various designs in Mothercare, they will end just above your ankles. Grrr. I found some good long maternity cords in GAP in the USA, don't know if they do maternity here but you could check. Long Tall Sally do some maternity trousers, or used to, not sure if they do jeans, try here and look under trousers.

H&M jeans were barely long enough for me and I'm only 5'7"!

mamajacqui, where abouts are you? How tall are you? I have just finished with my H&M maternity jeans, my best maternity buy ever. They're yours if you want them (free of charge - they'd be going to the local charity shop otherwise). Use the contact link if you're interested.

soupy I too have long legs - 31" altho my new gap long and leans are very long..

Gap do maternity in the us - you need tinyfeet to post you some

mamajacqui Tue 18-Nov-03 19:42:26

Hi all
I've checked out the H&M store. I realy need to have them delivered. With kids aged 1,2,3,4,6 and an unhelpful son at twelve, not to mention an overworked under appreciated husband, shopping is a nightmare. Thank you so much to all who responded

Long Tall Sally do mail order as do Next Directory (can't recommend the latter though as they have messed me about massively).

Mamajacqui,

I've just sent you an e-mail, looks like you're in luck.

Hi I am 6 foot tall, a size 10 and am really really struggling getting any trousers or jeans, am 20 weeks pregnant and can no longer fit into any of my old clothes all i have are leggings and cut off jeans to the knee (which I bought in bigger sizes for the summer) but I need Over the bump jeans 36" leg and bootleg trousers. Long Tall Sally are usually only ones that fit but they are struggling to get them in! Any ideas am really frustrated, uncomfortable and yes highly emotional!!

Does Long Tall Sally do Maternity?

KerryMum Fri 28-Sep-07 11:00:44

I'm 5'11 and only wore leggings and dresses.

Poledra Fri 28-Sep-07 11:23:23

I'm 5'10'', 31'' inside leg and got some great maternity jeans in Asda - and they were cheap too grin.

ImBarryScott Fri 28-Sep-07 11:26:53

I found topshop pretty good. Esp as most of their styles are under the bump, so are worn quite low. They also do tops sufficient long to cover, and fabulous bump bands. There's a who maternity store at Oxford Circus, and I think they sell online as well.

sideways Fri 28-Sep-07 11:27:44

I'm 34" inside leg and I'm struggling to find trousers as well. I found a couple of pairs in Pumpkin Patch by accident, but they are under the bump and I seem to spend my life pulling them up. I couldn't find any in LTS.

ImBarryScott Fri 28-Sep-07 11:28:07

whole

NotADragonOfSoup Fri 28-Sep-07 11:29:18

You appear to be stuffed if you need 36" leg. Gap are 34 but I think the range is limited in the UK and you can't order online. Next isn't long enough either.

You may get away with a short length worn with boots and pretend they're meant to look like that?

NotADragonOfSoup Fri 28-Sep-07 11:30:40

If the under the bump ones have belt runners, use a chiffon scarf as a belt. Or the belly band things work well (both over the waistband or under so the trousers have something to grip onto).
