Maternity jeans are kind of the worst, but I would go on Old Navy’s website. They aren’t super pricey and you can get them in a short inseam.

I got a pair of petite ones from Macy’s, I think they were on sale too. I’m 5’1 as well and no hemming required! Easily my favorite pair of jeans right now.

I’m 5’4″, and I have a pair of Jessica Simpson petite skinny jeans that I love. They are currently buy one get one at 50% online. They are maybe an inch short on me but I figure it’s almost boots weather so who cares. 


The website says the inseam is 26.5″, which surprised me (how short are my legs??), and I measured them and it’s true. So maybe they will be short on you, but worth a shot. I bought mine at Macy’s but it looks like they are having a good sale at Motherhood online. I had previously bought two pairs of Old Navy maternity jeans, which seemed great until I wore them for a day and discovered that they do not stay up for me. I think the belly panel on the Jessica Simpson jeans is a better quality elastic and it fits me much better. I love Old Navy for maternity tops though!

Cote1590 :  Ugh, I am struggling with this too! I’m 5’4″ 114 pounds and 21 weeks pregnant. I can still get my jeans on, but it’s not going to happen for long. I found one pair of cute ones at Target (http://www.target.com/p/maternity-inset-under-the-belly-black-wash-jegging-liz-lange-for-target/-/A-50794234) – the only ones that are sized 2, 4, 6, etc vs XS, S, M, etc (the XS is way too big on me still). Old Navy has the rockstar jeans in maternity sizes, but no small sizes in stock online and most of their stores don’t carry maternity in the store. My favorite jeans are Paige, but I refuse to spend $200 on maternity jeans! I also ordered maternity tops from Gap and Loft, and they were comically huge, so I doubt the jeans would fit me. So yeah, I’ve struck out so far!

I’m 4’11”.  Mine came from Motherhood Maternity.  I have a sewing machine, and had to hem all of them.

I had great luck shopping at gap online. I always shopped the clearance section when there was also a sale, so I would get them for like $15.

Gap sells “short” and petite ones. They worked perfect for me.

Cote1590 :  motherhood maternity was the only place I could find petite maternity pants. They also had awesome maternity yoga pants. I’m 5’1 too, and I’m not going to lie, finding pants was downright depressing. I ended up getting regular pajama pants in a larger size from old navy and all my other pants came from motherhood. Good luck in the hunt!

I got a pair through stitch fix. I can’t remember the brand name, but they are petite. It might be worth the 20$ styling fee to try a few pairs
