There are two things I think are the most dreadful things to shop for—swimsuits and jeans. Try adding a pregnant belly into the mix, and then you really have a challenge! I have been on the eternal search for the perfect pair of skinny leg maternity jeans. I have borrowed from friends and tried on just about every pair you can imagine. Everything ranging from the $200 pairs at A Pea in the Pod to the less expensive jeans at Old Navy. After a five-month long search, I think I finally found what I was looking for!
A friend loaned me these J Brand Mama J Skinny Jeans, which have worked out just fine, but I don’t love them. The elastic on the sides ended up stretching out for me—they were great when I first put them on, but I found myself having to tug them up often.
I tried on the Loved By Heidi Klum Under Belly Jeans at A Pea in The Pod, and I was pleasantly surprised. They have a great dark wash and fit really nice. My only concern was if they would stay up as my belly grew. I think what’s nice about having a panel on maternity jeans is that they hold up around the waist a little better. You can’t beat the price though at $39.98.
Do you have a favorite maternity jean? If so, please share!
