Maternity wear has definitely come a long way in the last few years, especially in the jeans department. There is a great variety of jeans available for maternity wear – you’ll just have to decide how many pairs you want, and what style is best for you.
- There is the “No Panel” jean that sits just below your belly. This is a great option in the beginning of your pregnancy or if you have a small belly. If you’re like I was with a big ole’ basketball belly, this style will only see you mid 2nd trimester.
- The “Demi Panel” has a nice stretchy band that sits low on your belly stretching with you as you grow. This is probably the most popular style for jeans and pants.
- The “Full Panel” has a stretchy band that you can roll down like the demi for a little support or roll over your belly for more support. This was my favourite type of pant and jean at the end when my belly was really big.
Our favourite stylish maternity jeans:
The Gap’s “City Fit” jean. This is a great casual jean that looks great with t’s, tanks, sweatshirts and sneakers. The demi panel lets you wear the panel up when you start to show and roll the panel down when you belly starts to grow.
Joe’s Jeans: We love these sexy, soft numbers!
Old Navy’s “Embroidered” jean gives a modern twist on the original 5 pocket style. The roll panel is great for the full nine months and the embroidery on the back pockets makes these jeans a little funky.
7ForAllMankind: Amazing fit and grow with you beautifully.
Citizens of Humanity: Make a fabulous fitting jean.
Maternity boutique A Pea in the Pod offers mommies-to-be the utmost in style.
Habitual: The king of the skinny.
Paper Denim and Cloth: These are slightly pricier jeans, but well worth the spend since you can end up living in your jeans for the next 6 months.
