A good pair of maternity jeans will take you right through pregnancy and beyond in style and comfort. Everyone has a special pair of jeans that they always look great in – whether it’s the cut, the colour or both, you can rely on them not to let you down. If you’re anything like us though, you probably just love jeans in general – they can be dressed up to the nines, dressed down for casual days around the house and will go with just about everything, making it an absolute breeze to put an outfit together. And no matter what you might have heard, denim is your perfect partner during pregnancy. As long as you buy maternity jeans specially designed for a body with a bump, you will find yourself going back to them time and time again for all kinds of occasions.
This is where lots of women fall down – they simply buy bigger versions of their ordinary jeans, find they won’t fit in any of the right places and then assume jeans aren’t quite right as maternity clothes. Actually, you should wear your normal size but with a few adaptations, such as an expandable tummy section so your denims grow with you but don’t swamp you. Seraphine’s jeans have won rave reviews and have also been worn by a host of famous faces, so we know a thing or two about designing them with pregnancy in mind – read our brief round-up below and we’ll share the inside info with you.
Maternity jeans – what you need to know
When it comes to maternity denim, you have a choice about where on your body you want them to sit. There are those that cover your bump and stretch as it grows, or those that sit under your abdomen if you don’t want too much of a departure from your usual style. It’s personal preference really, so try both and see which you like – you may find under-bump jeans are best in the early stages when you haven’t got much of a tummy yet. Do be prepared to spend a little more on your new jeans than you would on ordinary fashion styles, as you will wear them so frequently they’ll be worth every penny.
We love our skinny maternity jeans, as they look bang on-trend but are also unbelievably comfortable. Jessica Alba went for our grey ones when she was pregnant, but there is also black and classic blue to choose from.
If you only want to buy one pair of maternity jeans, we’d recommend one of our bootcut styles no matter what your body shape is like. They’re so flattering that they look as good as designer jeans, plus they will go with everything.
We fell in love with colourful jeans a couple of seasons ago and the trend has proved so popular that it just keeps coming back. New for this season, we have coloured maternity denim in cobalt blue, coral and sea mist on top of classics like black, so you have plenty of choice. Wear them with a black top for a really dramatic pop of brightness this summer.
Don a pair of cropped jeans and you’ll instantly feel like summer’s back, even if it’s grey outside. Our white style looks fantastic with navy, but you can also pair them with a flowery tunic for a relaxed holiday look. Did we mention we have some great shorts too?
