The Best Maternity Jeans

Now that I have a growing bump, my jeans no longer fit. I was pretty sad about it at first, until I discovered maternity jeans. Man, did that discovery change my life! If you’ve never worn a pair, let me just tell you, it’s like wearing sweatpants… that look like jeans. My mom bought me these for Christmas, and I’m hooked. If you scroll down, you can see just how high the waist comes up, great for covering the bump.

When you have a shirt or sweater over them, you can’t even tell that they’re not regular jeans! I’ve been pairing mine with loose sweaters and flowy blouses like this cute floral one.

I’ve tried on some other pairs of maternity jeans since getting these, but so far these are far and away my favorite. The wash, the amount of stretch, and the fit makes them perfect for my body type. If you like these jeans but aren’t pregnant, you can findย the same pair in the non-maternity version here.

If you have any recommendations for others, definitely let me know!

    So is it acceptable for me to buy these and wear them when I have a major food baby? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Love this casual look on you, Julia! That top is great!

    • Hahah right? I feel like I would have done that on Thanksgivings past had I known this little secret!

  • Elizabeth Rogers

    Love this look – such a fun floral blouse!

  • Cute! I loved GAP’s maternity jeans too, but then again Gap’s jeans have always fit me well ๐Ÿ™‚ Good price point too!

    Those are the same jeans I bought! They’re great. Also, this product got me through the in-between when my normal pants were a bit tight but the maternity pants were still too big:

    I loved the PAIGE denim full panel skinny jean. I had several pairs in different washes and I wore them through my final month of pregnancy. I was so sad to let my jeans go as well, but that stretchy panel made me so happy!

    • So many people are saying that. I think I’m going to have to invest in a pair!

    I love the PAIGE side panel skinny jeans… I also am a huge fan of the ASOS maternity jeans and GAP full panel have done a good job too except they get baggy really easily! But I mostly stick to yoga pants ๐Ÿ™‚

    • This is so helpful, thank you! Looking them all up now… yay!

  • Ashley

    HAHA Great minds think alike! I am literally shooting these jeans later this week – I LOVE them so much! The stretchy top makes them so easy to wear.

    I’m just so excited for you both! That moment when you hear your baby’s cry for the first time and your eyes lock with your husbands is such an amazing, life-changing experience that you’ll never forget. A bond between you two that is just so amazing. Congrats!!!

    • Awww I’m so excited for that, you have no idea!

    I am OB-SESSED with these distressed black jeans from Seraphine Maternity: I went to the Seraphine store on the UES and wasn’t a fan of most of their clothing (kind of too formal/stuffy for me) but these jeans are amazing, very flattering, and the price is so great. Congrats!

    • Wow, I LOVE those!! Thank you so much for the rec. I’m going to buy them today ๐Ÿ™‚

    Old navy and Jcrew both have great side panel skinny jeans which make you feel a little less giant! They worked like a charm through most of my twin pregnancy.
