    milkandcookies :  I loved wearing over the bump pants because they were the most comfortable especially once I really started showing. The loft has great maternity pants and jeans and were by far the most comfortable.

    I much prefer over the bump jeans. They are more comfy but also they give more coverage if your tops start getting a bit short.

    Another vote for full panel over the bump.  I tried the side panel ones cause I wanted to feel more “normal” wearing as close to regular jeans as possible, but they just never stayed up right and I always felt like my butt was showing when I sat in them.  I gave into the full panel ones and loved them!  I liked the jessica simpson or motherhood maternity ones I got from Macys.

    I wanted to love side panel but I ended up spending half my day pulling them up. Definitely full panel!

    Jessica Simpson brand materiality jeans were the best ones I found! Every other pair sagged but hers don’t have a panel, just elastic waist band.

    I liked the full panel, but folded down around my waist. I HATED having anything right like that across my belly and it makes a stupid line under your shirt. But the ones with a small panel never seemed to stretch and felt too tight across the bottom of my stomach. So I say get full panel ones and fold it down if you don’t like t across your belly because then you’ve got the option of wearing it both ways

    I’m 14 weeks and just made to switch to maternity jeans. I bought one of each style at Target and definitely prefer the full panel version. I”ll probably buy another pair of those because the side panel jeans just don’t stay up on me. So far I’ve been wearing them with the panel folded down and it’s super comfortable.

    Agreed, I hated having the panel up. I wore it folded down the whole time, and then also after for a month or so before I was willing to try normal pants again. Equine_Breeder :  

    I got mine from H&M. Didn’t really look around much but they weren’t expensive and were basically maternity jeggings so super comfortable.
