Comfy long length maternity trousers?

I'm 31 weeks and starting to realise that I won't be able to wear my 3/4 length leggings once the weather gets colder.

Where can I get decent comfy long length trousers, preferably in an over-the-bump style?

I have a pair of Next long jeans which are the right length (thgough I can't wear them as they fall down as soon as I put them on), but I also have a pair of Next long smart black trousers which aren't long enough. confused

The trousers will need to go with trainers as they're pretty much the only non-summer shoes I have - and preferably cheap. smile

Have you had a look at New Look? I believe they do some longer lengths and I have a few pairs of jeans and trousers from there that I've been living in the last couple of weeks.

New Look do quite decent longer length maternity jeans. I am wearing them now - look great but do fall down a lot. Only £17 though!

What size are you?
If you don't mind me asking!?

Angel - I am 6ft and looking at Isabella Oliver, H&M and Mama's & Papa's have a longer length in some of their trousers too.

I swear by Sweaty Betty's long length Warrior yoga pants. They unfold to go over your bump and were big enough and long enough to cope with over 13 stone of me at full tilt last pregnancy!

I have two pairs of nice trousers I could post you, long and size 12-14 I would guess as thy didn't fit me and I am a 16.

Thanks, everyone - some good ideas for me to follow up.

I'm 5'7.5" which isn't enormous, but I do have long legs. I'm a 12-14 (well, was 14, lost some weight so down to 12 but then put some on again as I got pg so I don't really know now!)

Para, that is really kind - I'll PM you. smile

theTramp, Long Tall Sally do a few pairs of trousers, but mainly smart work ones (though they're too long for me really, I think).

A tall colleague of mine recommended Debenham's who do long leg trousers up to 34". I got one pair new from them and found three more pairs on ebay for £15 total by searching for 12L. They're all comfy and long enough. HTH

I'm the same height as you, with a January born DD. my trousers came from next and top shop while pg... Also HM do some good skirts. Try eBay if you've only got 9 wks ish to go?

Angel I'm 5'8 and a 10 I've found asda do a pair which are brill!! Just the right length. Really struggled with the right length trousers (am usually a long) but these are so comfy and really not expensive!! I've found next maternity don't fit me like the usual ones do? Odd!

Angel - thank you for tip. LTS trousers are apparently cut for a woman with an arse and hips quite different to mine, so their trousers are never any good at all, although their skirts and dresses can be. On the whole though, I tend not to get excited by their clothes. When not preggers Oasis and H&M are great for jeans, because they have the longer lengths which are actually long enough for me and Levi curve is the best thing to happen to jeans ever. Again, not much use when preggers though.

IO trousers are only 30" inside leg, so no use to me but would probably fit you if you are 5ft7.

I have one pair of mat trousers already - from Mamas and Papas. I can definitely find better but they will do for now. I'm looking forward to getting a few more bits and bobs over the next few weeks.

I'm 5'8" and a size 14 and my Gap maternity trousers in long length have been excellent - they are under bump though, so might not be right for you.
