R.I.P my skinny jeans...

(9 Posts)
manchesteruntied Fri 27-Oct-17 16:01:39 and my skinnies are breaking up, after many happy years together :-(

I am only 10 weeks and in reasonable (if somewhat squidgy shape) but still they have been uncomfortable to the point of no return, I am bereft.

Please help me find a decent maternity replacement! I have been looking at New Look and Asos (I don't have a fortune to spend) but I haven't a clue where to start confused

H&M do some great skinny maternity jeans.
Seraphine are lovely too, but pricey. But if you’re only 10 weeks yiy’ll Get a lot of use out of them.

Yes H&M!
I too had been living in leggings from about 9 weeks as my jeans were far too uncomfortable. Bought some black skinnies from H&M and very impressed

thank you smile I will try H+M!

I was feeling a bit of a failure because while googling for mat jeans I stumbled across some blogs along the lines of " size 8 clothes until went into labour, then was back in size 0 jeans minutes after delivery of twins" etc etc...which is lovely for them, but not really all that helpful for mere mortal mummies like me lol smile

At only 10 weeks with your first child maternity jeans will probably drown you, you are going to get a lot bigger! Wearing long tops and having the top button undone and using a hairband to hold things together will help for a bit then there are various extenders to do the job for a bit longer. Or you could buy a pair of jeans in a bigger size since you might need them post baby as well (although if you don't put on any underlying weight you'll be back to normal size pretty quickly, I was back in my normal clothes after all 3 of mine in a matter of days and then shrank while BFing).

it's only cuz I'm really uncomfortable, I haven't put masses of weight on (due to not being able to keep anything down... TMI....) but on the advice of the previous posters I just got a pair of skinnies from H+M in the sale (£10, free delivery!) but if they are big and I have to wait to use them it's not the end of the world.

Just so bored of leggings!!

H&M for sure!

Size up in jeggings? You’ll have the elasticated waisted but jean style legs and pockets. M and S £15 are decent and you could use them again in the post birth chunky weeks when you’d rather burn maternity gear than wear it but pre pregnancy wardrobe still a while away.
