Please help me find maternity jeans that don't fall down!

I'm pg with dc3. My beloved old pg jeans from previous PGshave disintegrated. I bought them in the us and can't get them now. Have tried so many types this time round, but none are comfortable. None stays up, or fits properly round my bum. Am a slim build, but not scrawny. I'd just like something that sits snugly on my bum, but where the crotch doesn't end up mid thigh after 5 mins. Not too fussed about style. I'd also prefer not to pay mega bucks as this is definitely my last pg! Please help!

I found all maternity jeans fell down! Ended up getting some under bump jeans from new look that have got belt loops and wearing a belt to hold them up! They were only about £20 so don't really mind doin this, also got a pair from next to do the same with but they really stretched out and look baggy an horrible around my bum! Xxx

Peacocks! Their jeans have been great. The band comes about half way up my bump and have had no issues with them slipping! I'm fairly slim (12 -14) and have a sticky out the front bump. I think they cost me £16. I brought a pair from Mothercare, which go under the bump and I must say I prefer the cut of these jeans - slimfit, but the band gets on my wick and it gets a bit draughty in the cold weather!

I must admit at 17wks I am just in mat jeans, and though they look groovy when I put them on they are soon hanging at half mast. These are an ebay special Isabella Oliver, I am very pleased I did not spend £100 for this level of comfort. I think my other jeans (on my old body, sob!) would gain some purchase on the top of my hips, but these sit that much lower there is nothing to hold them up! It's not a good look, tugging your trousers every 5 mins.

new look jeans are fab, mine were £15.99 i think, elasticated waist. so under your bump. They are fine as im not tha big yet. i have bee given some over the bump ones but i tried to wear them and your right, half hour in and they were round my arse!!

I've got some FAB over-the-bump jeans from Next. I live in them.

go to white stuff and get a couple of pairs of their lounge pants i think they're called. they're amazing as work right up to labour but aren't maternity - they're fitted round the bum and hips but so low down that bump doesn't seem to have any effect on them. I'd describe them as tailored yoga trousers. drawstring waist but not elasticated. they sound totally unsuitable but actually they're perfect. I THINK they're about 15-20 quid each.they have a little coloured tag on the bottom hem and i think that hem is described as unfinished BUT you really can't see it. I live in mine as I just can't find any jeans that work - I have a narrow pelvis / hips...

Have you looked at Belly Belts? The larger of my pre-pg jeans still fit everywhere except the bump area, and the belt extends it enough to wear. You have to wear a longish top to cover the zip area though

I have given up. Slim hips and no bum = jeans on floor for me. Have tried Next/Seraphina/Blooming marvellous.

Now in leggings and skirts and the aforementioned white stuff lounge pants, which strangely stay up despite being elasticated.
