Anyone found some good maternity jeans for tall ladies?
I am looking for a pair of good maternity jeans, probably over bump as I tried on a pair of under bumps and found they refused to stay up over my bottom - not a good look. I would need a 34" leg and not too hippy - I usually wear men's jeans as I can get the length and fit I like but obviously they don't allow for my baby belly. Although the shape of some chaps out there it probably wouldn't be a bad idea!
OK, I am properly miserable now. After ordering recommended DP long jeans last week, I called them today to find out where they are, and apparently there was a problem with the payment and order was cancelled. I have to re-order through the website and there are no size 16L over bump jeans left!!
In my hormonal state this nearly set me off in floods of tears but decided to rant here instead.
I am down to 2 pairs of trews that fit at the moment one of which is a pair of white linen trousers that are fine for holidays but far too much like high maintenance for everyday and the weather is foul and I'm too cold in the only skirt that still fits!
Please can someone recommend an online retailler who can help me!
Have you tried Topshop?
Annoyingly, they sell the same jeans as DP but at a bit more price wise however they do leg lengths and over the bump stylee.
Shame about DP, I always rave about their jeans too.
If you can make it to one (not on-line I know) but I would deffo recommend H&M. They're trousers were only made for taller people IMO. It would be worth a look if you can.
Also check out ebay. Lots of sellers on there who stock DP's jeans. I got some combat type jeans from there which had just come in store, couldn't get them on-line or instore because they sold out but got them buy it now for £10 when they were £35 in store!!!
Thanks for your support, I am only 20 weeks but feel that as my currently wardrobe is letting me down on the stretch waistband front its time to invest and move into maternity. (Have religiously avoided elasitcated waistbands before pregnancy for fear of turning into my mother.)I was under the impression that these jeans were on their way and am going away at the weekend and had these jeans on my packing list. Might have to pull a sickie at work to get to my nearest H&M although last time I browsed my nearset (Slough) store for maternity stuff I felt quite disappointed.
Apart from the sickie option I am relying completely on the internet to solve this crisis.
Am going to try all powerful ebay now tho, but ANY other hints, tips, tricks so I stop feeling like a whale. (still feeling a bit tearful - bloody hormones and DP.)
I'm 6ft 1 and got my mat jeans from next that were under the bump. They were long enough but i had a bit of a builders bum when i sat down so i "borrowed" a belt of dh which helped i had a prob with tops being long enough so again borrowed off dh! George at asda do mat and a longer length leg.
Got some jeans from ebay - they were sent from the states and an absolute bargain so got 2 pairs. (£15 each and Brand New!) My favorites are GAP Maternity (I don't think they do that over here) and are dark blue denim with a good ole stretchy over bump band and 34" leg. Pretty damn flattering too I might add.
Thanks for all your help ladies, good to know your are all out there in case of further clothes crisis!
I'm 6 foot and am desperately trying to find casual "over the bump" trousers/jeans that are long enough - most of the shops do "long length" - up to about 32 inch, 33 inch if lucky - I need minimum 34 inch. Long Tall Sally only does smart trousers, at £45, and Beanpole Bumps trousers are either too expensive or they don't have the right size (am a 14-16). Dorothy Perkins don't have any "over the bump" in my size. I can't work out how to order H&M clothes online if they do indeed do long length (they don't instore), and Gap search just directs me to their US website.
I don't really want to spend more than about £25...any tips...any trousers going second hand? Help please!
