Good maternity leggings?

(32 Posts)

Has any of you found maternity leggings that you're happy with? I have bought a few pairs from very cheap New Look ones to a ridiculously expensive Seraphine pair and they all seem to ride down as I walk hmm

I'm only 16 weeks so my bump is still pretty small - perhaps it will get better when I actually have a bigger bump to keep them up?! Also I have straight/slim hips which I guess doesn't help.

I prefer over the bump but open to suggestions.

Thanks very much!

My Dorothy Perkins ones are very comfy but a bit tights like in appearance. I was in a size up normal leggings until about 23 weeks this time. At 28 weeks even maternity trousers are a bit uncomfortable!

I really like the h&m over the bump ones (I have 3 pairs!) I have slim hips but my bump is decent now at 30 weeks - but u have worn them comfortably with a much smaller bump (pulled up to near enough the bottom of my bra!)

I'm 34 weeks and the Seraphine small ones are still ruching and slipping! They must make them for giants.

I've gone cheaper since and bought Blooming Marvellous multipacks from Mothercare. They're not amazing but less slippage.

The h and m ones were best for me but I think you will find they all fall down until your bumps bigger. For the in between bit you are in now I went to marks and Spencer and got some normal leggings a size bigger than normal...they have some really unfashionable ones that are really high waisted!

I really like the George at Assa black over bump ones that came in a 2 pack. I wore them throughout my pregnancy (and a few weeks postpartum) and actually finding it hard to get normal ones that fit as well and look as nice. The standard non maternity George at Asda ones aren't as good quality or fit.

Loved my Boden ones last time round. Not sure if they make them any more though. They did slip down a bit at first but we're great once I had a bit more a of a bump.

The problem I have is that they fall apart - I've had JoJo ones (which have an odd seam on them) which wore through within weeks, and now I'm wearing Dorothy Perkins ones which are much better but I've noticed this evening that the seam has gone on them.

George maternity ones are good for me. They're over the bump and not too thin. About £7 I think

I really liked my ASOS maternity leggings. Soft, comfy and stretchy but not restrictive.

I found jojos to be the best. If I'd worn something through quickly on there I'd have sent it back . Found all their clothes to be good quality. Good customer service.

LBOCS2 Mon 22-Feb-16 20:33:56

Zen, I'm currently in debates with them about a number of items I'm not terribly happy about - their customer service hasn't been great but it might be the shop I'm dealing with!

I loved my Boden leggings. They were so comfortable and great quality.

Jojo support leggings. The normal ones are crap and split at the seams!

I've never found decent ones either, over the course of two pregnancies.
H&M ok at first but wash v badly and go into holes after a few wears, IME.
Blooming Marvellous ones slightly better. I ended up going for Sainsburys jeggings a size up instead (for under long tops), or maternity tights under dresses.

I liked the top shop ones to start off with, the thicker ones with the thicker waistband and seams down the side of the legs. Although now my bump is getting a bit big for them so they slide down it. Have to now wear them underneath my bump.

My h and m ones fit the bump better now

ladymildred Mon 22-Feb-16 21:35:21

I had the same problem with maternity ones falling down. I bought a pair from sainsburys in the next size up and they fit wonderfully! I am 33 weeks now and they still are v comfy although my bump isn't massive yet.

GoingLoopyQuickly Mon 22-Feb-16 21:38:49

Ebay. They may not last forever but I love them and they are cheap and I have never had a problem with them falling down, even when I wasn't pregnant (super comfy so my preferred choice always)

I'm loving my top shop ones

Pinkheart5915 Mon 22-Feb-16 23:26:37

H and m ones are good

Asda. I found H&M too short in the leg.

My favourite were from Peacocks, still wearing them now

Wasn't impressed with M&S - thin at the knees / arse from outset, and cheap looking, though to be fair they weren't expensive. Trying to still get away with just rolling normal ones down so they sit right on my bum and under bump. Ditto with larger sized tights though with a wool dress say, you do get an attractive verrrry visible waistband line in the midde of your bottom!

Red herring ones from debenhams £12 but amazing and don't loose shape :-)
