I just thought I'd share with you mumsnetters that, after 1 and 3/4 pregnancies, I (a 5' 5" size 10 lady who is 33 weeks preggers) have FINALLY found maternity leggings that: - don't bag at the knee - aren't too short - aren't too long - aren't too see-through - are comfy - don't slide down my stomach/legs so I have to hoick them up in the middle of the supermarket/street/ball pool - don't require the tucking-in of a vest top in order to halt the above - will still look good post-pregnancy (bump band bit is fold-downable) - look slightly stylish - work with trainers, boots or ballet pumps (prob would be fine with heels too but I value my and my unborn's life so aren't about to test this)
Believe me, I've done the rounds. I've tried (among others): Boden: (nice thick fabric but they slide down without a tucked-in vest) Asos: (look cheap, too short, but at least they stay up) Dorothy Perkins: (not too bad but a bit baggy and a bit short) H&M: (well cheap but sag at the knee instantly) Pretty Pregnant: (too tight round bump) River Island: (slippery and cheap looking) Citizens of Humanity: (OK, these are black skinny jeans with a bump band but similar to leggings - v v expensive - £200, gulp! - and looked fab and were pretty comfy through most of my second trimester, but now the top of the bump band cuts into my stomach and I can't wear them - pretty gutted considering how much I spent.)
Anyway...who wants to know where I found my leggings holy grail?
