Any recs for comfy decent-looking yoga pants ...

I've been looking for some yoga pants (either maternity or suitable for pregnancy) for what seems like ages. I bought a pair early on but they are hideous, shapeless numbers (DH has to actually stop himself giggling when I put them on!!!)

Does anyone have any recs? I'm looking for something looseish but not shapeless. Full length or 3/4 leg is fine. I'm not really a fan on fold down waists though...

These aren't actually maternity but I wore them alot during my last pregnancy and I was MASSIVE blush

I have a couple of pairs of cheapy non-mat ones from [checks] Champion and Pineapple - I think they are normally just obscenely low-rise as seen on teenage girls in shopping centres with muffin tops and padded gilets, but in pg with a long top they work perfectly as under-bump trous.
Not too baggy on thighs and bum is the key.

Mothercare do a few types of yoga pants and only about £16-£18. Only thing i would say is that they do come up quite big so if you order on line go for your pre-maternity size - i know they say that anyway but i've put on quite a bit around my legs and bum and a 10 is still quite big - thought i should of had a 12 as everything else needs to be about that size!!! Pre maternity size would of been an 8.

they're fitted around the bum and gradually get looser around the thighs and legs - full length.

they are really soft and comfey!!!

White Stuff do the most amazing ones that can also pass as tailored casual black trousers if matched properly! They aren't maternity but they were the only things I could get in to during my pregnancy and laboured in them too. Drawstring with darts on the bum to give a 'fitted' fit and then little coloured tag on the bottom. They do different colours. Highly recommended.

H&M have good maternity ones for £18ish. Friend lent me hers which are really comfy and waist can be up or down but I also tried on the current ones they have in store and also comfy but can't remember what waist was like. I'm a 12/14 and medium is fine for me.

Sweaty Betty. Fabulous. Wore them from 4 months (9 stone) to 9 months (erm, almost 16 stone. I gained weight like it was a mission) and they are still in use now, believe it or not. I wore them for work as they held shape so well they looked like palazzo pants. They're such good quality they keep on going. My mum (who is a very stylish woman - LK Bennett is her shop of choice) even got herself some.

There is also something infinitely cheering about buying non-maternity wear. On that note, Kew sold some empire line dresses that were perfect for the middle trimester.

Try TK Maxx if you're near one - they often have Manuka and other brands in, much cheaper than the RRP. Better to buy ones that are normally expensive as they don't go as baggy around the knees! Sizing can be a bit funny (suspect that's why they're in TKM) so I've started getting a size bigger than normal as they don't stretch out as much as cheaper ones.

Hope this link works, quite good ASOS maternity ones although not full length
