Over-the-bump dark blue skinny jeans

Any suggestions on where I can find some? Most of the ones I've seen online are under-bump, which I know from last time around will probably not last me through to the end. (Or they cost £100 - thank you Mamas & Papas!)

I tried on some nice ones in H&M yesterday, but didn't buy them as I was in a hurry and wasn't sure whether the button was digging in a bit... probably should have just gone for it!

I'm a size 12ish in real life and, er, not tall.

My sister bought some last year in Dorothy Perkins. Looking online they only have "slim" fit (whatever they are) with the overbump coverage but you might do well in the sales.

I recently got some from H&M, they are so comfy! Think they were about £30.

What about trying Topshop's maternity range?

let me know if you find some! I may try those h&m ones, though i've found skinny for them is too skinny for me. I had better luck with under the bump last time, even at the end.

Word of warning about the H&M skinnies, I'm always a size 14 but had to get a size 18 in them!!! Not good for the self esteem at all!

But they are lovely jeans!

Hmm. I had an excellent pair from Zara - exactly as you describe but they appear to have stopped doing maternity. Rubbish!!

these are actually really good, i wouldn't usually buy adult clothes from Boden but am still wearing The johnny b skinnies despite being 7 months pregnant and i'm huge but they're starting to fall down so thought it was time.

Thanks for the help, everyone! I reckon I might give the H&M ones another try - but at least now I have other options to fall back on (and thanks @RickGhastley, at least I won't feel bad going up a size!).

H&M are ridiculously small, I always buy the biggest size they have.

H&M do the best ones for much cheapness, just buy a size up from what you usually wear. So get a 12 if you are a 10.

I had great maternity jeans from GAP (skinnies, and erm, boot cut).
