I was wondering whether anyone can point me in the right direction for plus size (18/20) jeans? I had my dd 2 weeks ago and have literally nothing to wear on my bottom half! (Apart from leggings and roll top yoga pants) I've got a few nice nursing tops but can't wear them with leggings as they don't cover my bum and big thighs! I was wearing tunics and maxi dresses towards the end of my pregnancy but these are all non feeding friendly - Argh!
Also I've had complications with my c section scar so I can't go far and don't have the energy for a shopping trip yet, so want to order a few pairs online just to ride me over in the immediate post baby phrase! I've got one pair of harem pants from last year that look smart, are comfy and hide a multitude of sins but a few pairs of stretchy high rise jeans would be useful too! Thanks in advance!
I've got a pair of Evans wide legged jeans that are nicely high waisted - I'm the same size as you - they are a good dark denim with a nice bit of stretch -they also feel quite 'smart'. I think if you get a size 20 they could be perfect. I've got a post c section tum that I like my jeans to come well 'past' - though mine is 2 years not 2 weeks!
I ordered a couple of pairs of Evans ones and I notices those NYDJ ones - £146 wow! Maybe if I got back to my standard pre baby size 14/16 I might invest... I'm going to start slimming world/running again once I feel able... If I spend that on a pair now and lose the weight that would be a bit of a waste! I am intreagued however - what makes them so special? And worth the price? I thought a few cheapie pairs to start with...
Would just like to report that I received the Evans boot cut jeans today, size 20 in pear shape and standard fit and the standard are perfect :-) so many thanks for the tips. Only £18 too! Nice high waist - mum tum is well and truly contained!
