Recommend me your (short leg) maternity jeans / jeggings

It’s my second pregnancy and whilst I wore loads of dresses in my first pregnancy, I’m finding it easier in trousers with a 1 year old to run after. I’m only 5 foot 1 so any fellow short- legged people have any recommendations for jeans or jeggings that aren’t cut for 6foot models?

I also don’t want to spend loads as this is planned to be my last pregnancy (but never say never) so I only intend to be in them for a few months.

I love the seraphine over the bump jeans. I can't remember if they do different leg lengths but I am 5 foot and didn't need to alter them.

They are very comfortable and hard-wearing.

Topshop jeans you can also get in a shorter leg, but the bum goes saggy and I also found in my first pregnancy they absolutely did not fit (over or under bump) beyond 26 weeks.

I did well with New Look for petite maternity clothes, including jeans/leggings. I'm 5ft.

I'm 5'1" and had DC1 in January. I lived in Next petite denim jeggings - a few different colours to choose from (I had 3) and are smart but really comfy.

I'm 4'11" Next maternity has been a God send. Their clothes are a little on the pricier side but, IMO, worth it.

I second new look for petite maternity jeans. I got two pairs last time and wore them constantly.

I’ve got River island maternity jeans. The do them in short, long and reg. they are literally the same jean I wear not pregnant but just the maternity version. They are brilliant. smile

New look and love leggings!

I'm having the same issues! I'm 5"2/3. I got petite jeans on H and M and they are fab. Honestly every other pair I ordered were horrible!

Thanks all! I’ll take a look now.

Super useful thread! I normally buy 28" leg jeans, got some 2nd hand H&M maternity jeans and have been putting up with all the extra fabric wrinkles but for any future pregnancies (when I'm not working at home unexpectedly for half of my pregnancy) I'll definitely be looking for ones with petite leg lengths.

Definitely recommend Topshop! You can choose leg length so really good!
