    I just ordered the Old Navy full “smooth panel” jeggings.  Did the opposite of what you’re supposed to do and didn’t try them on first.  Figured I would return if they seem uncomfortable.  They were only $30 on sale.

    I also ordered a pair of Citizens full panel maternity jeans.  My sister recommended.  Again, will return if they don’t work.

    I’m not expecting but whenever I’m on asos.com i’m always amazed with the cute maternity clothes they have, plus the price. And they have free shipping and returns, just a little FYI =)

    I’m not really wearing maternity yet, at 13 weeks 2days I’m not really showing but none of my old pants fit me except one low rise pair of pants that used to be too big for me. I think I’ll prefer the low rise just because I cant stand the feel of anything stretchy over my belly

    I like full panel because the low rise jeans I found feel like they are slipping off.

    @nickels:

    oh wow thanks! They have super cute stuff and it’s so cheap! Do they ship free int’l?

    OT:

    But I am keeping an eye on these two to see if they go on sale! I’ve been worrying about what I will wear to my office holiday party this year.

    I had this same question looking at the Old Navy site, but I just decided to order the low-rise bootcut jeans (the ones with the elastic band, no panel). I LOVE them to death. Now that I’m getting bigger by the day, the full panels tend to feel like they’re constricting me by mid-day (esp. after a meal). The low-rise aren’t so low that they fall off, but they don’t hit high enough to cause discomfort. I was super pleased.

    and I will also add … I ordered the low rise because I figured I could wear them postpartum as well. I think they’ll work really well when I’m not able to fit into my old jeans yet, but I’m too small to deal with a full panel, either.

    I found this blog post a couple of weeks ago that I found helpful. 

    http://www.aintnomomjeans.com/2011/09/maternity-jean-rundown-which-styles-are-best-for-you.html

     

    I just ordered a demi panel pair from gap, a side elastic pair from Piperlime (J brand), and a strange adjustable band pair from Zappos (Paige). I’ll let you know how it goes. There are very very few places that sell maternity items in my smaller town, so its easier to just order and try some on and send back the one’s that don’t work.

    I like the low-rise jeans because I found the full panel jeans too big for most of my pregnancy, and I also couldn’t stand anything covering my itchy belly after about 20-ish weeks.  I also like the side adjusting pants since they didn’t slip down much.  Although some of my maternity pants did slip a bit, I found that maternity shirts are so long, they covered anything that might have shown before I got a chance to adjust.

    I had to pull up my pants all the time regardless of if they were full panel or if they were an underbelly waist.  (I swear someone needs to invent maternity suspenders that go under blouses but keep the pants up!)  In the beginning I preferred the full panel and would pair that with the Bella Band but as I got bigger, the top elastic part of the full panel dug into my belly and became uncomfortable because the full panel didn’t go over the whole belly.  I preferred the underbelly waist later in my pregnancy because they didn’t dig in and I had to pull up my pants either way.

    I prefer full panel. I have a pair of low rise that are just a tiny bit too big and after trying to keep them up with binder clips I finally gave up on them. Full panels are just more comfy for me…even though I hate the contrasting colors on my jeans…lol
