Maternity jeans - sorry probably done to death

Do good ones exist that don't sag horribly at the bum? I usually wear high waisted jeans so I don't get that falling down thing, also to avoid my bum/love handles spilling out. I'm pretty small size 8 but still have these. I just want something comfy but also flattering which seems an impossible ask!

I found them all uncomfortable regardless of make. I lived in skirts and dresses instead. Much more comfy. Not very helpful though, sorry!

H&M over bump skinnies.

I didn't try the H&M ones, but also found all the maternity trousers I did try, fell down on me, so I spent whole time in skirts and dresses. I have no bum or hips to speak of though (apple shape) and was a 12 when I was pregnant, so not the same shape as you.

Isabella Oliver amazing. Seem pricey but on cost per wear they were probably the best value maternity item in my wardrobe!

H and M all the way! They do amazing skinny ones, which are so Un-maternity-like I'm still wearing mine 4 months post partum!

There are some Isabella Olivers on eBay for £35 (possible knock offs I guess). Worth it? I'm not super pregnant looking yet but this is fourth so expecting to really pop any minute.

Mothercare has them with loops for a belt. They were great. H&M were awful. Kept falling down.

Gap and topshop were the best for me when I was pregnant. Like the rest of h and m stuff, maternity sizing was bizarre. I'm very slim and size 14 maternity jeans wouldn't go over my knees blush And my local store didn't get a bigger size in through my whole pregnancy hmm

I live in H&M. They're so comfy. I did get some second hand off Ebay but the bump band bit is a bit loose (which on some days is a bonus) from the woman who had them first, did get two pairs for £25 though.

My favourite ones were from Asos - the only ones that would stay up on me and sit properly. I also had ones from Next and Jojo and found them terrible for staying put.

George at Asda ones were OK too for the price.
