So I'm going thro leggings every month either because they fade or get tight. I've been buying their normal ones and just gone up in sizes but they're getting a bit uncomfortable. Looked online and they seem cheap but no reviews on them
Other places easy for click and collect without going right into the city would be tesco or new look

If you have an Asda near you or can order online the Asda ones are fab! I lived in the mothercare 2 for £15 last time but they fell apart really quickly and were a little thin my friend pointed me in the direction of the George maternity range this time round and has been a life changer! Pick of two leggings are fab and really cheap also bought some long sleeved tops and a swimsuit at same time as all so cheap but all holding up really well and fit great!

Fab thanks. Will do click and collect for there then. X

I had most of my maternity stuff from H&M and I loved it all smile

I’ve been wearing new look ones, I can’t remember how much they were but they weren’t expensive. Very comfy and hardwearing!

Just got done nice ones from h&m

Have a look on eBay too, I got 6 x George maternity leggings for £12. I wear them nearly everyday day and are really comfy x

Another vote for the asda ones. I have 2 pairs and have lived in them for 10 weeks so far. Got the maternity work trousers from George too and they are great. Went for h&m over the bump jeans though because everyone raves about them. For good reason.

How does the Asda sizing come up??

Howsthings1234 Thu 07-Dec-17 20:46:27

I go for mothercare as for me they are the most comfy and don't dig in or feel too tight but agree with another poster they do wear and they are quite thin but super comfy. I also have a pair of new look which are dreadfully uncomfortable as although they are thicker they dig in on the waistband.

I found Asda pretty true to size, possibly a little big, so would stick to usual size then should have plenty of room to grow and will last the whole time! Definitely better bigger rather than smaller! I did have a pair of the jo jo ones last time they were lovey and thick but £20 for one pair, so really expensive so lived in mothercare ones daily then had those as my special occasion leggings 🙈 (who would have thought special occasion leggings haha!) but have found the Asda ones do both pretty well.

Thanks mummyG2C! I was going to order some maternity dresses from Asda so will be adding these to the order as well!

MrsL2016 Thu 07-Dec-17 21:21:49

I would say asda are true to size too. I bought 12's (my usual size) and they fit great with room for growth.

I’ve found the Topshop ones to be most comfy. They have a soft and wide waistband rather than the gathered elastic style, and the material is a good thickness.

@mummyG2C Special occasion leggings 😂😂😂

mummyG2C Thu 07-Dec-17 21:52:12

I know!! I feel when that sentence comes out of your mouth it is a true sign of motherhood! better get my special occasion leggings out for dinner out tonight dear 😂

Thanks ladies. I was a 12 before but have already put two stone on! So going to order a 14.. Can't believe they're only £12 for a two pack.. Bargain

I'm still wearing my h&m maternity leggings. My dd turned 1 this month blush

cakesandphotos Fri 08-Dec-17 12:50:47

another vote for Asda. I love mine! And they’re pretty thick. I’m 30 weeks now and they don’t cover as much of bump but they stay up really well

The new look seamless maternity (has to be seamless) ones are the best I found.
Binned all my other leggings as soon as I realised how superior they were

CinnamonAndSpice Fri 08-Dec-17 16:05:55

Thanks. Want to avoid h and m. Simply because I don't need to go Into the city before Xmas.
Will order click and collect from Asda as hopefully they will be ready Tues when I grocery shop

I've been wearing non-maternity Primark leggings that are a couple of sizes bigger than normal. They're dirt cheap and have fitted all the way into the 3rd trimester.

MulderitsmeX Fri 08-Dec-17 19:46:04

Asos ones ok- 7/10
H and m ones lovely and thick 10/10! They also come in grey too.

I got some from New Look I think it was £14 for two and I LIVE in them! They are over bump and I found them well comfy xx
