As an avid wearer of jeans and a hoody, getting pregnant at the start of the year rung alarm bells when it came to my maternity style. I struggled with the change in my body shape and trying to dress for work everyday became a real challenge. My trusty jeans lasted as long as a hair bobble would stretch to keep them done up and then it suddenly became time to actually buy some maternity jeans.
I visited several changing rooms in my attempt to find the right pairs of jeans to see me through to the end of my pregnancy before I finally settled on a pair of skinny jeans and a pair of boyfriend jeans. These were fab and now that Freya is here; are packed away in storage for any future pregnancies. During my search I came across Mothercare’s Denim range which has a huge selection of denim options. When looking through the website, I chose 3 of my favourite pairs to test at home and see how well they worked for the pregnant lady.
These jeans are super comfortable and very giving with the stretchy band that allows you to where them over the bump and under. I am still wearing all of my stretchy maternity jeans now Freya has arrived as none of my pre-pregnancy jeans fit my mum tum yet.
Again these jeans have a stretchy band allowing for over the bump and under usage. These jeans look like all the other non maternity jeans in the shops right now with rips in them and due to their stretchy nature, are comfortable to wear when running around after a baby or when you have a big bump.
These are my absolute favourites of the three pairs I chose as they are comfy and more like a jegging in style. The frayed ankles with zips are bang on trend and you wouldn’t know they were maternity jeans especially now that I’m still wearing them postpartum.
I would definitely recommend the Mothercare Denim range as all three pairs I’ve tried have been comfortable and practical. They are excellent value for money and I would hold my hands up and confirm that it’s worth investing in a good pair of maternity jeans especially when you can wear them after the baby is born until you fit your old jeans again.
