Best black skinny maternity trousers...?

I need some! Busting out of my much loved black skinny work trousers. We'll gloss over the fact I'm only six weeks (second pregnancy so I'm cutting myself a bit of slack grin )

What can you wise ladies recommend? Under or over bump, I don't mind long as they fit well.

When pregnant with DS I had some great ones from H&M but not had much luck there this time around. Have been looking at the Isabella Oliver Easy Leggings - anyone bought these before?

Thanks muchly.

I've been very impressed with seraphine overbump leggings.

New look. I've got two pair of black skinny under the bump maternity trousers, and they are great. Really comfty.

I've just bought some black 'Leigh' skinny jeans from Topshop's maternity section, they have an elasticated panel at the front that goes across the bump rather than under/over. They don't look like jeans at all and are a very light material, I wore them for work today because they just look like normal trousers.

I lived in Leigh maternity jeans in my first pregnancy, they are very comfy and did me all the way through.

FWIW I had to go up a clothes size from 6 weeks with this pregnancy, I've just bought maternity stuff now at 18 weeks but I've been desperate for them for a few weeks now. Once I'd put them on I wished I'd bought them sooner, definitely no need to be uncomfortable smile.

Thanks both.

Knotty I've just had a peek at seraphine and their range looks really nice.

Thanks blink - I'm a fan of 'normal' Leigh jeans so may give the bump ones a try!

You're so right about not needing to be uncomfy. Mat clothes rock. I just have to be a bit careful as I'm still hiding my pregnancy from work...

I have been spending on maternity clothes today and have seen lots of black trousers!

Seraphine and Vertbaudet both have some in the sales at the moment. I definitely spent too long squeezing into ordinary clothes with the last pg - I want to be comfortable this time! I wore Topshop jeans last time but wished I'd sized up as they got too small.

Found some Seraphine black treggings (didn't even know they were a thing) on EBay for £14! Have ordered a pair...will report back!

Gap do midi panel black jeans which look like trousers and are amazing. Not cheap though but have seen me from 10 weeks to 30 so far!

Thanks little. I've heard some good things about Gap so will check them out. Does the black colour last well?

These are only £9 at Jojo Maman Bebe, and I think their stuff is usually good quality? I've ordered some but they haven't arrived yet so I can't tell you anything about them.

I have ordered and received the jojo maman bebe black leggings/trouser for £9

I think they are definitely more suited for late pregnancy, I am 16 weeks, and they are baggy around the stomach

Catsofa that is brilliant, thank you so much. Have just ordered a pair. Even if they're shit, you can't complain for £9!

Should have said, they also have his dress in the sale - it's £35 in blue but only £9 in grape colour, no idea why!
