I'm normally size 10 (12 in some places for trousers) but I'm currently size 14 (DD Is 9 weeks old) and in that horrible 'maternity jeans don't fit but neither do my normal jeans' stage.
I bought a cheap pair from asda,in a 14,they fit over my thighs but are baggy around my waist and keep slipping down blush I tried size 12,and they don't fit over my thighs <sob>

So,I need help....please?

Topshop Kristen. I'm a size 10 with jelly belly & like something to hold me in & these are fab!Also have rugby player thighs & these are forgiving in this region too. As I say I'm a size 10, 5"7 and a 28w - 32 leg fits me great

Oh you're my height too! I'm normally a 10 (28) but 12-14 post baby...what size should I go for do you think?

Someone on here recommended the Next Relaxed Skinny.

I bought some and they are really nice and v flattering. So far so slippage.

I bought a pair of River Island jeggings the other day. Was a bit shocked at the price (£40??? For JEGGINGS? From RI???) but they're a fab fit and soooo comfortable, and on their third day of wearing have kept their shape really well. Come in a range of lengths and washes too, come up true to size and longish.

I would go for 30w or 32w, but they are forgiving. I can squeeze into a 26 on 'thin' days ;-) I can get away with 30l for boots etc as the leg length is quite long. Have on look on ebay if you don't mind buying 2nd hand to see if they suit you (& save £ if you are planning on loosing any weight) look up both spellings Kirsten and Kristen and you do get some good deals.

Ps congrats on baby
