If you are rocking a baby bump, chances are you are in need of some jeans that fit! We’ve rounded up some of the best designer maternity jeans to sport as your belly grows, as well as given you some advice on how to choose the right pair of maternity jeans.
Shopping for maternity jeans can be overwhelming. You might have questions about what size to buy. Usually denim designers recommend you purchase maternity jeans in your pre-pregnancy size, as they are sized up to accommodate for a pregnant belly. But always check that specific designer’s size chart.
It is also important to get a pair that has a comfortable band – after all, this is a time when comfort is key. Gap has a really helpful breakdown of different belly panel types – low, medium or high. You might be more comfortable with your jeans hitting below the belly completely (low), or sometimes you want some belly coverage (medium). Others might want full belly coverage (high). Most maternity brands have jeans that fall into each of these categories. This is helpful to consider when shopping.
Choosing a Style
When choosing a style of maternity jeans, think about where you will be wearing them. For casual days, bell-bottom or boyfriend jeans work well. For the office or to be a little dressier, we recommend a pair of skinny, straight leg or bootcut jeans. And of course, when the weather heats up a bit, a cropped denim is the way to go.
From skinny to bell bottoms, here’s hoping you find a pair (or two) that you love.
