A good pair of jeans is an essential maternity investment as you are likely to wear them 5 days out of 7, so it is important to buy the right pair for you. So, first you need to get to grips with the different ‘bump-band’ options available for maternity. It is really down to the individuals shape and size as to which is more comfortable, and this diagram (below) shows the difference between them, and which brands feature which band.
- Stretchy Bandeau waistband = Paige Premium Denim & Citizens of Humanity
- Under bump waistband = James Jeans
- Elastic Side Panels = J Brand
We normally advise to buy one size up from your pre-pregnancy size for a pair to see you through your pregnancy, however it totally depends on how much you have expanded around the middle, the thighs, and which style of bump band you are looking at. n.b All our jeans are 34 ” long on the inside leg.
Next, choose which leg you’re looking for; straight leg, boot-cut, skinny, flare, and cropped are the classic legs that we carry all year round, and they all come in various different washes, to enable you to choose smart, casual or evening denim looks.
