My favourite maternity jeans (and I’m hard to please)

September 23, 2011

… have to be the Grace jeans from Queen Mum. I’ve tried cheapy high street brands (with aforementioned addiction to Doritos, I feel that I’m going to be zooming up the size range and don’t really want to invest), but they bag in strange places, don’t quite stay up, and aren’t particularly comfortable. Cue jeans from a proper maternity brand.

First of all the fit: slim leg, with a cool little zip detail on the calf (anything to draw attention away from the bum area), with enough elastane to smooth out those lumps and bumps. Well placed, flattering pockets.

Then, the functional bits: a deliciously soft, stretchy panel that goes over your bump, and stays up! Then, a clever adjustable elastic inside the waistband that can be tightened using little buttons, and which means again, the jeans stay up, without feeling constricting.

Grey denim, nicely styled with white maternity vest, chambray shirt, something spangly and sparkly, and some cute pumps. That’s one outfit sorted! They’re stocked by Pretty Pregnant, who have various branches in London, in Edinburgh and sell online too.
