Maternity jeans are really only of interest when your baby bump starts to make an appearance, up until then your quite happy in your everyday skinny jeans. Some women refuse to buy any maternity clothing and opt for looser clothing they know they can use at a later date. That’s all fine, but if like me you’re in your jeans most days buying a pair of maternity jeans can throw you out of your comfort zone.

This post was written to help you navigate through the sea of maternity jeans. Pregnancy can be a funny thing in the way it can strip you of your normal identity, which can make you doubt everything you believed post-baby bump. This is why when shopping for maternity jeans keep to what you know in the way of style. If you usually only wear a boyfriend style then stick to the same style. There are lots of skinny maternity jeans to choose from so let comfort be your guide when buying.

WHICH WAISTBAND?

Which waistband is really the decision you need to make when trying on maternity jeans as the selection wide and the decision is really up to how your feeling when your bump starts to show.


 

UNDER THE BUMP

An under the bump waistband is a good option if you’re used to wearing a low to mid-rise jean. The waistband stretches while your bump grows. If your pregnancy is during the warmer months and you tend to get hot easily then go for an ‘under the bump’ style.

OVER THE BUMP

If you’re used to wearing a high rise jean then definitely try the ‘over the bump‘ style as this will cover your bump with a soft jersey waistband giving you and your bump support. Try a few ‘over the bump’ styles to see which work for you. Check the fabric content of the waistband as synthetic fibres can make you sweat more.
