Petite maternity jeans recommendations?

(13 Posts)

Can anyone recommend any decent petite maternity jeans - length and size?! Pre-pregnancy size 6 standing at a mammoth height of 5'2".

GAP seemed to drown me... as did New Look size 8. I like the feel of the Topshop Joni jeans material and they come in petite (yay) but the smallest size they go down to is an 8. However, if they run small this may not be a problem.

There's a rubbish selection in stores and I'm trying to not order 27256282 pairs online to try on!

Any advice would be brilliant!

Worth keeping an eye on the TopShop website as they do have some maternity jeans in a petite length, but it seems to vary. They weren't hugely clear about it, but if you clicked on the jeans, some of them came up in a shorter length. I'd also try H&M - their skinny jeans are good and actually come up quite small.

I got some from Not sure if they go that small. Length wise they are ok. I am smaller than you. Unfortunately most places seem to be online only for maternity wear now.

I'm bigger than you but also short. Only 4'11" and like New Look maternity jeans and jeggings. I found the under the bump ran big but over the bump work well. Can you get a size smaller than 8 from them?

I'm a similar height and I got mine from topshop. They do come up fairly small and I got fatter (not just bump but around thighs and hips too) towards the end anyway. In fact they got too small.

I just bought a pair of size 8 petit maternity Jamie jeans from topshop and they fit me fine - bit of room to grow into them and I'm normally a petite size 24-25 in jeans which I think is about a 6 but I never know dress sizes with jeans, I'm 5'1.

H&M jeans run small but are long in the leg. Probably an easy alteration to DIY or get a tailor to do though.

Asos have a petite maternity section smile I am 5'5 but long torso and short legs so I shop petite trousers. They are so comfy and last time I looked had a choice of under and over bump. I ordered in my regular size and the fit is great.

I'm 4 foot ten and a small size six. Asos petite size 6 skinny maternity jeans are a good length and only a little loose on the legs, although the over bump band is a bit rubbish in that it is only elasticated in a strip around the top and is too loose there for me right now so I have to fold it down. Seraphine do lovely over bump skinny jeans with a very soft comfy over bump area. They are too long for me but I just roll them up at the bottom and it looks fine.

H&M skinnies turned over at the bottom! Love mine x

I had topshop petite ones and they were good because they had belt loops round the back so in the earlier days you could have a belt on to keep them up!!

I am 4ft 10 and a half (the half counts lol) and a size 8. I have h&m skinnies turned under at the bottom and they are really comfy. I couldn't find any others in store anywhere else that fitted.
