On third pregnancy and rediscovering why I hate maternity tights, 2 different brands so far tried and with both I have ended up with the gusset falling down to my knees by the end of the day! I have tried sizing up but they are even worse. So anyone found any that stay up?

Haven't washed them yet but quite pleased with a pair I got from Jo-Jo Maman Bebe. I'm a small and they only had medium and its actually been just fine.

My pair from Jojo haven't stayed up yet! An old mothercare pair were much better, but I've lost them!

I got some from Debenhams and they are pretty good. I got size small and I'm a 10, they stayed up over bump all day too

Hmm one of the fall down pairs was from JoJo sadly. Will give mother care a go. Thanks both.

Only if I tuck a vest or t shirt in. Then they'll stay up all day. Super foxy look...

Have you tried the Mama Spanx ones yet. I found they helped with beginning of pgp too.

Camel - may end up having to give that a go - bloody things!

Right - debenhams and mama spanx being added to the to try list...

Try hold-ups instead?

H&M mama were the best I had and not too pricey either.

MissingDietCoke Wed 27-Feb-13 21:11:17

H&M Mama ones have been my pregnancy staple! Now 38 weeks and still staying up fine!

dinkystinky Wed 27-Feb-13 21:12:46

Ooh 2 votes for H and M Mama tights sounds promising!

H&M Mama and Eastern European ones off eBay

All others were saggy rubbish.

Until you get a big bump the M&S medium support ones are good.

Yup, I did hold ups. You can even get opaque ones if you dig about.

I have some knitted Noppies ones from Pretty Pregnant which are only just starting to fall down occasionally at 34 weeks (I've had them since about 14 weeks).

LadyMetroland Wed 27-Feb-13 22:18:41

Jojo ones fall down and waistband/bumpband doesn't come high enough

M&s similar but marginally better. Always out of stock though (like everything decent in Marks and Spencer)

I wear pg leggings from boden which are like really thick tights but without feet, obviously. Only thing is I only have one pair and can't justify expense of buying more for such a short time.

I found h and m to be brilliant all the way through to term. About £8 a pair I think.

Mothercare ones are holding up well at 26 weeks here.

helebear Wed 27-Feb-13 22:30:26

I have taken to wearing a pair of knickers on top of my(h&m and m&s) maternity tights to keep them up as I'm so sick of ending up with the crotch of my tights by my knees!

CityDweller Wed 27-Feb-13 22:41:14

I have two pairs and both stay up - mothercare and M&S. The mothercare ones are more comfy though, and they also withstood me taking a flying fall in them and grazing my knee (but somehow they didn't rip or ladder).

Another vote for Mothercare. Also Blooming Marvellous.

MisselthwaiteManor Thu 28-Feb-13 05:42:37

Another fan of H&M ones here. I've been wearing them since the first hint of a bump and they haven't fallen down.

jaffajiffy Thu 28-Feb-13 06:35:16

Another vote for hold ups here - and you can wear them post pg as well.

TeaOperated Thu 28-Feb-13 06:41:27

H&M mama and mothercare both brilliant for me - and I'm both tall and curvy, which is something tights manufacturers don't normally allow for. Both still staying up - and providing light bump support - at 36 weeks.
