Best maternity jeans?

Hi, I'm pregnant for the third time but it wasn't planned so I gave away all of my old maternity clothes after number 2!

I now need a full maternity wardrobe so thought I'd start with jeans. I'm considering the Isabella Oliver ones - anyone have them or can you recommend any others? I don't mind if they're expensive as I'll probably wear them 5 times a week until March!!

I had some nice ones from Topshop, they were just like normal jeans but with a small stretchy bit at the side, fitted under the bump. £40. V comfy.

Oooops just read full post blush

My sil had the Isabella Oliver ones, they were gorgeous and she lived in them right up to the end.

All their stuff is pretty nice, she treated me to a tunic jumper dress when I was pg and I loved it.

Thanks all - I had under bump ones from Topshop before but I always felt like I was pulling them up! I used to love my over bump ones for comfort even though they are not very trendy!

Next are good but their lengths are funny on me - too short or too long. Will have a look at JoJo.

I got some really nice over bump ones from Gap, in the sale. Their maternitywear is very nice.

I have the narrow waistband Next ones, they are very nice but go baggy at the knee and bum after 48hrs.

I also have the Seraphine ones, they are fantastic. Do not go out of shape and feel great on, nice small waistband too. No belt loops though, not that i wear a belt at the end but could prbably wear one now (am 18wks)

The Isabella Oliver ones look great too, i want them also < greedy >

I am 5'4 and the regular were waaaay too long in the Seraphine. I had to send them back for a short. I was dyubious as if wearing boots in the winter i wanted them a bit longer. Then i remembered that my calfs will be mucho swollen by then and probably wont fit in boots angry

The Next ones are fine in a regular.

Thanks Aimsmum - H&M is on my list for fab vests and t-shirts so I will look at jeans.
Pinky - do all GAP stores do maternity? Will try and find out.

They don't. The one in Southampton does but i went to Reading a week ago and thought they would do but noooo. Huge store like that i would ahve thought it was a given.

squiffy, the one here in Manchester town centre does, but the Trafford centre doesn't, so you will need to check out your local stores.

H&M very nice stuff. Got some very nice plain vest tops and leggings in topshop- look very nice with the dress I got in GAP.

i vote for the Topshop ones with the stretchy bits concealed in the pockets. Genius and only forty smackers

I invested in a pair of JBrand Love Story mat jeans and they are magic - make my arse and thighs look smaller and fit like a dream. I wear them every day!

H&M are great for maternity jeans I love mine from there.

SquiffyHock Tue 12-Aug-08 09:28:46

Have ordered the Isabella Oliver pair so will see what they're like - have also ordered a pair of black trousers from there. Am hoping that I can make up the rest from H&M and Topshop. (No maternity at my local Gap)

Thanks everyone smile
