- Wedding: February 2009 - Small church ceremony with mountain-view log cabin reception
so I’ve been trying to find a pair of maternity jeans that are both comfortable and will last me through the rest of my pregnancy. So far I’ve tried motherhood maternity, gap, and old navy and nothing seems to fit me right. I’ve had friends buy designer maternity jeans and they swear they’re worth it, but for 200 bucks I’m not sure I can pull that trigger. Any thoughts or recommendations?

I got some at Kohls the other day and actually like them. I’m REALLY picky about jeans so that’s kinda a big deal for me.
I MAY have to get a bigger pair by the end but I may not…
After $10 Kohls cash I had and a $5 giftcard they were only 25bucks
They ALWAYS have sales going on so even if they end up not being your favorite atleast they didn’t cost an arm and a leg.
As for my thoughts on 200 maternity jeans… I just don’t think I could ever do that. What if they end up not fitting the whole time?… and even if they do I just couldn’t be content with the limited time of use I’d get out of them. lol

If you can afford it and you wear jeans a lot, then go for it. But really, if they are only for weekends and such, you are going to wear them maybe for 3-4 months total.
Did you look online and see if there are any other options? I would check ebay and amazon first.

I’m way too early to make a decision about this, but I’ll probably spring for a pair at some point. I might feel a little guilty doing it, but we are hoping for multiple children so hopefully will get good use out of them. My sister didn’t with her first pregnancy but did with her second and said it’s worth it.

I’m not pregnant, but just speaking as someone who loves jeans and practically lives in them, I think it depends how much use you’ll get out of them. If you wear jeans multiple times a week, then I think it’s worth it to get a pair that you really like and feel good in. From what I”ve heard, toward the end of pregnancy, you’re uncomfortable and generally feel kind of blah, so if there’s an article of clothing you can wear that fits well and looks good, I would go for it. Plus, if you’re planning on having other kids in the future, you can reuse them!

Lol, I wouldn’t buy $200 jeans normally, so there’s no way I’d buy them for pregnancy. 🙂 But I’m cheap and don’t care much about finding a good fit. I’d say, if you can afford it, and you’d use them a lot, splurge!

NO way would I purchase a pair of jeans for that much/ maternity or not. That is stupid to pay that much for just a pair of jeans. You can find maternity jeans pretty much anywhere.

I would check out a maternity consignment shop. There is one out here that carries used designer jeans for less.

If that’s the only pair you buy and wear them with your next 3 kids. 🙂 That being said, if they were awesome, I’d probably really want to buy them lol.

I vote ebay! If they are really worth it (I have no idea) I’m sure there are some on ebay and you don’t have to pay retail price.
Or craigslist, or maternity consignment, good will, etc.

It was worth it to me to find a good fit and be comfortable so I bought one pair of Paige maternity jeans. I’m willing to spend $ to feel good about how I look. I figured if I was going to be uncomfortable because of the changes in my body, I might as well feel good about how I look. I bought mine a bit earlier in my pregnancy though than I needed and used a Bella Band so I got more use out of them than some people might.

i found some jeans at macys (some off brand) that happened to fit me perectly — and i’m super picky with my jeans. it took a lot of searching though…i just couldnt justify spending that much money on jeans i’d only wear a few months, even though i work in a casual office and wear them a lot out of the office too.
i second the ebay idea, though. you could try them on in the store and then save a few bucks ordering them on ebay. i hear 7 for all mankind maternity jeans are awesome.

I am not pregnant, but I already told my husband that the maternity Citizens were not negotiable. For me, it is completely worth it (and I do hope to have multiple children). Plus, I can always pass them on to a good friend or sell them when I am done.

I love designer jeans, so I say go for it! Plus, you can always sell them on eBay later.

$200 for jeans seems just ridiculous to me. But, if that’s something you can do then go for it.
