Best maternity leggings for third trimester?

I've been wearing Jojo Maman Bebe maternity leggings, but all of them have developed holes so I need to pick a few new pairs for the last 8-10 weeks of pregnancy. Not best pleased with the quality. Also, I'm not that happy with the length (at 5'5" I am not ridiculously short but they are much too long) and the fabric could be softer.

A friend recommended Boden maternity leggings, but they've been sold out online in every size except for size 6 for ages now.

I would really like something black and soft.

Any recommendations?

Omg, I've spent a fortune on maternity leggings this pregnancy and they've all bobbled and went holey too quickly.. Apart from next black full leggings... Bloody marvellous. I have three pairs.

I wore normal m&s ones both times. Just pushed the waist band under my bump. They were fine in my normal size. Admittedly I had quite small bumps.

I've been living in sainsburys normal leggings in a size bigger, I think they were £8 for 2 pairs

I had quite a big bump and I'm 5 3". I got some over the bump ones from topshop and they did the whole pregnancy and about 3 months after.
And they didn't go all see through like most leggings! They were £15.

Blooming marvellous do a great pair of black over bump leggings. Feel like really thick tights but look like leggings. I've lived in mine since about 20weeks (am 37 weeks now) and they've not bobbled or gone out of shape. Think they were about £12-14 per pair. I'm a normal size 12 and bought the s-m size.

I've got H&M ones which have been great.

I'm wearing next ones. They're over the bump ones and seem to have lasted pretty well - I'm 38+5 so have been wearing them since about 16wks.

Im wearing isabella oliver ones, over the bump, really like them - currently almost 27 weeks and hoping they see me through the last trimester. Also got gap maternity ones but have found they have lost their shape quite easily and gone a bit baggy hmm

These aren't maternity leggings but they're super cheap, nice and thick and last comparatively forever - I just rolled the band down on a larger pair than I'd usually buy.

I'm living in the asda normal leggings. A size up from my normal size. I wear the back around my hips and the front goes just under the bump. I can wear them over the bump but if I'm wearing a tight tshirt my bump looks a bit odd. They're only a tenner for 2 as well do don't mind if they get ruined.

I've got some ASOS ones which I've used since the 2nd trimester and they're still wonderful and comfy [ leggings]

wow, big link fail! leggings

Thank you so much everyone! Great suggestions!

I don't know why but I really prefer the over-bump leggings. I have loads of really lovely normal ones from M&S (their thermal leggings are the business - super soft and last for ages) but the maternity ones keep me feeling more supported.

I have gone for the ASOS leggings that you suggested, badgerwife - thanks. I'm such a sucker and they are described as soft smile and I can get a Hot Milk bra from ASOS at the same time, so... smile

H&M - fricking brilliant. Soft, comfy, stretchy, do not bobble at all. they are over the bump ones. cheap as chips.

I've worn nothing but leggings throughout pregnancy and now also following. H&M ones are good for cheapo pair, but they fade and get holes in pretty quickly. By far the best are the Serafine ones. More expensive sure but they've lasted really, really well.

My favourite ones are my h&m ones. Soft and big enough for a third trimester bump. Mine haven't faded or gotten holes in them at all. Much nicer than my cheapy New Look ones.

American Appare high waist leggings... They go right over the bump and stay up. Gosh they are amazing, so soft, light and comfy...
