Top 10 Maternity Jeans and Pants
1. Target Maternity Straight Leg Jeans
These jeans have been my go to pants for three pregnancies now and I highly recommend them. The sizing is generous and they do stretch out. The over belly band is incredibly comfortable even with a full term belly.
Available from Target in sizes 6-20 for $39
2. Angel Maternity High Waist Tummy Support Jeggings
Now before you rule out “jeggings”, you have to try these. They have the most comfortable thick fabric and fit beautifully. I found the fit fairly slim around the thighs but they do offer a wide range of sizes. They are one of the most comfortable pairs of maternity jeans I have every worn.
Available from Angel Maternity in sizes XS-XXXL for $44.95
3. H&M MAMA Chinos
These chino pants from H&M are the perfect neutral colour to add to your wardrobe. They have a slight stretch and a super comfortable over belly waist band.
Available from H&M in sizs 6-18 for $39.95
4. Target Foldover Waist Wide Leg Pants
These fabulous black pants from target aren’t technically “maternity” wear but lasted me through two pregnancies right up to 40 weeks, and I know many other women who’ve found the same. The stretchy waist band folds up over a growing bump and sits nicely below a larger belly.
The fabric is thick enough to not show lumps and bumps and they are super comfortable. I still wore them regularly after pregnancy, in fact I don’t know if I’ll every go back to buttoned up work pants.
Available from Target in sizes 6-20 for $35.
5. Crossroads Roll Waist Maternity Bootleg Jeans
The bootleg style of these jeans is really flattering on larger thighs and the comfortable over belly band gives a nice smooth look. The sizing is generous so you may find you need to size down to get a good fit. Available in store and online with easy returns.
Available from Crossroads in sizes 8-18 for $25.
6. Angel Maternity Foldable Waist Band Luxury Legging
A nice pair of thick stretchy leggings is an essential wardrobe piece for all pregnant mummies. They are perfect for pairing with a long top or even a dress for cooler days. These beautifully thick and luxurious feeling leggings are perfect for every mum to be.
