Best Maternity Jeans EVER

over 2 years ago

It seems more important than ever for mums-to-be to maintain their own style and be as stylish, yet comfortable as possible during pregnancy. Maternity jeans have always been a bit off, but now, there are some awesome options for ladies who still want to rock a pair of skinnies, and why shouldn't there be!
So, here's a little award ceremony for the brands that are doing it right for all the mama's out there!

Best Budget Pick

H&M has created a whole wardrobe worth of maternity jeans and ladies worldwide are really loving the styles and REALLY appreciating the prices.

Starting at around $35 (but often with pieces dipping into sale), you can really stay on track with trends with these jeans. Lots of mums online are also citing H&M as a great choice for that 8th and 9th month, where they offer some fantastic choices in comfortable overbump styles.

I love this style because looser-fit, boyfriend-style jeans are actually harder to find in maternity fit than skinny jeans, which is a bit of a surprise. These have cool distressed elements and a faux zipper, which gives the look of a cool underbump style but the fit and comfort of a stretchy overbump jean.

Best Designer Pick

If you're looking to splash out a little on some chic AF maternity jeans, these Paige Denim coated jeans in black pretty much nail it.

They're pricey BUT they look it and they will also keep you feeling super slick and chic, giving you that edgy, polished look.

Dipping subtly under the bump, this pair have super-discreet elasticated side panels instead of front pockets, which you'd never realise if you weren't looking, giving you a great option to stay in your skinnies for the first few months at least!


Best Skinny Pick

Lots of maternity skinny jeans suddenly transform to more of a semi-straight leg fit. So, if you're looking for a true skinny-fit on the leg but need some extra space up top, these DL 1961 jeans do just the trick.

Similarly to the Paige Denim jeans, these have elastic panel inserts at the pockets so that the jean adjusts to your bump as it grows through your pregnancy. However, aside from the bump details, the fit remains true spray-on, keeping you feeling like yourself, at least from the hips downwards!

Due to the elasticated fabric, many have found that the extra stretch on these make them feel as comfortable as leggings but some have warned not to size up too much as the stretch means you'll pretty much fit your normal jean size.


Best Black Pick

There are a few black picks (GAP and H&M both do good plain black skinnies) but these Madewell jeans got my pick because they have a little bit more of a stylistic finish to them.

I like maternity jeans keep a little distressed detail, making sure that all the expectant ladies have as much choice as possible. These are super skinny on the leg and ankle, yet have a really discreet and incredibly comfortable over the bump elasticated waistband. They're built to not slip down and keep you comfortable and stylish and the reviews all over seem to agree with them!

Best Range of Choices From A Brand

When it comes to the range of choices in styles, shapes, colours, and fits, GAP takes it home as the winner. These jeans sit at a really reasonable price point, which means you can stock up for your maternity needs without having to dip into your baby savings, which is really what most expectant mothers want, right?

I'm a particular fan of their blue, slightly distressed styles and these styles have popped up on pretty much every single online list of best maternity jeans, so it's got to be for a good reason.

With many pregnant fashionistas citing comfort as a key reason they love GAP maternity jeans, these are potentially your go-to everyday pair for a slice of style and a whole heap of comfort.
