High waisted Jeggings

Does anyone know where I can find high waisted jeggings? I have jeggings from Uniqlo but they are too low waisted. It has to have an elastic waistband because I'm really uncomfortable in my tummy these days (I've seen a Dr and waiting for results smile). I'm prepared to spend extra if they are a lovely thick material and I would want to wear them 'out' so if you know any smart looking jeggings (oxymoron?) please let me know! TIA

Maternity leggings? Not that I am still wearing mine occasionally six months down the line.

I used to happily wear the white stuff jade jeggings which are high waisted and comfy around the tummy.

M&S do nice high-waisted jeggings with an extra elesticated waistband. No one would ever know they're fro M&S!

I've got 2 pairs of Tesco jeggings on the go atm, both v high waisted nearly up to ribs with elastic waistband. I think they look reasonably smart as once you've got a top over them, they look like normal jeans (imo).

M&S £19 ones.

Although I've just checked online for a link (Tesco). and they're described as 'mid rise' not high, maybe because I'm short (5'3'') they're more high waisted on me.

On the subject of jeggings, do all of them come with front pockets sewn up/non-existent?
I've got nice, high-waist ones from Next, but like all the ones I've had, there's no useable front pocket.
Sorry to slightly derail, OP!

I've got some lovely ones from next with a sort of double thickness waistband that keeps tummy tucked in. Nice thick material too, think they market them as 'treggins'! Smart enough to wear out too.
I have seen the ones in m&s that pp mentions, they look really nice! They had different patterns too -keep meaning to go back without kiddos in tow to try some on!

Thanks for all the suggestions everyone!

That's ok DelphiniumBlue smile my guess is that it would add too much bulk to have real pockets and because the pocket detail is just there to trick people into thinking they are real jeans. I've not seen any jeggings with real front pockets sorry.
