i just got a great pair from new look. they are 'boyfriend' jeans so quite baggy, a good strong elastic bit to hold them up. i think they go aboiut mid-bump. oh and they come with a belt. unless they've improved them in the last 4 years don't bother with dorothy perkins. they fall down. A. LOT.
I dont have any over bump, all under. I did buy some half bump jeans but hated them they dug in (i did however go for an 8 as was early preg but normal jeans were abit uncomfy) Topshop and new look are a good fit for me, The right size (ie: a 10 is still a 10 with stretch in pockets) Next were sized far too big and have 'room' around tops of legs, bum and waist where i havent put weight on-i have just tried them on again this am and at 25wk still way too big (i do have a bump) Good look...
MIL bought me a great pair of over the bump Jeans from Next for Christmas. I have practically lived in them since christmas. They are as comfy as jogging bottoms! I have several pairs of under bump or mid bump ones and they are all so uncomfortable, and they are from various shops. Honestly, go for over bump. And it keeps belly warm and doesn't matter if your top creaps up, or if you bend over, you don't have your underwear showing!
has anyone tried the maternity versions of paige/ juicy/ citizens of humanity? do you recommend? i know i'll still be i'm only 6 weeks and showing and will be still wearing for months after birth i'm sure so i'd prefer some 'proper' jeans
