So, where can I find long length maternity jeans in straight or possibly slim leg? I can find tonnes of skinny ones, but frankly they don't suit me normally so when pregnant it's definitely a no no. Don't want boot it either. Help please!
My youngest is one but I had some while pregnant with her from H&M. Nice and dark blue, straight leg, over the bump. They are generally well recommended on here. I'm 5"10 and they were long enough for me.
I bought a few pairs from next on eBay and the fit was awful. Might have been unlucky. Although if you buy from the catalogue you can return them of course.
Find someone who does alterations and ask them to convert a pair of your non maternity jeans. It's very easy to do and reversible, so you can have them returned to normal once the baby is born. I did it with a couple of pairs.
It just involves taking the waist band off and replacing it with a bump band. Hang onto the waist band and when the pregnancy is over you can sew it back on. Anyone who does alterations should be able to do it, or if you have a jeans shop near you, ask them to recommend someone as chances are they will have someone who does alterations.
