I’m not sure if you’d consider them chic, but i got some fantastic skinny maternity jeans (dark wash and white) from Old Navy that I love and looked very flattering. I even considered continuing to wear them even though I had my son in September, but I finally put them away because they became too big in the waist when I lost the belly.

 

They’re 25% off right now! I did have to go up 1 size from my regular size because of the expanding thighs 🙁

polarbee:  I like the ones I got at the Gap- they look like normal jeans below the belly part. I way prefer the low band to the over-belly band, but that seems to vary based on the person and where you are in your pregnancy. I definitely recommend waiting to buy them until you really have a bump, and to just use a hair tie or belly band for now. I bought a few pairs at 14 weeks (I was also pretty bloated…so I didn’t really need them yet but I was going to be traveling and wanted to be comfy on the plane- I should’ve just done the band, though!) but now, at 28 weeks, they’re getting too tight but I don’t really want to buy more. 

PS Like excitedscaredbee, my butt and thighs have gotten a bigger, too. I’m sure it’s just muscle, though 😉

I got some from the Gap which I loved.  My normal size fit fine, they did get pretty fitted in the thighs by the end but I think that was water weight, as they were a lot looser in the thighs after I gave birth and peed out a bunch of extra fluids.  They looked better on me than my normal jeans I thought!  I liked the over the belly panel.

polarbee:  Insider trick: Maternity sections at regular stores usually have horrible selection and sizes available. I would wait until a store I liked had a sale online, and I would order pretty much anything that I thought looked cute that they had in my size. Then I would get to try it all on in the comfort of my own home and return anything I didn’t like. Most websites have free shipping if you spend more than $50 and free return shipping.

It’s SO much better than hauling your ass to the store only to find that they have 1 XXL size of something you like!

I really like the jeans sold at Motherhood Maternity, particularly the Indigo Blue Secret Belly Ankle Skinny ($39.98) that I’m wearing right now and Jessica Simpson 5 pocket Skinny ($59). I did the ghetto rig up until the bitter end but maternity jeans are sooo comfy! Prices are super reasonable and there always seems to be a sale there.

Aother Gap recommendation. My parents have a huge gap maternity store by them so I was able to buy almost everything I needed in one trip. Their jeans were by far the best and I bought them during their 40% sale so paid about $35 each. I bought a pair from pea and pod and ended up hating them and they were twice the price of gap.

 Ps: I used to work for specialty denim retailer so that’s how I know about them, we carried them and women swore by them!
