Someone asked me recently about where I found my maternity jeans. Finding a good pair has been the biggest wardrobe challenge so far (I have put Aron through more try-on sessions than I’d like to admit); but after first deciding that there is too much lycra in the Gap Always Skinny jeans, I’ve come around to thinking they’re the best–and most reasonably priced–option. Runner up? A pair of great, if slightly long, skinny jeans by Maternity America, spotted at The Bump, in Brooklyn.
For some reason, because expectant women need a stretchy waistband, skinny jeans seem to all fall practically into the “jeggings” category (bootcut or flared options are far more vast). I even ordered a pair of AG jeans on ebay at a steep discount (usually my favorite brand), thinking the high price might be an indication of superior denim, but found them to be the same stretchy fabric as all the rest. I haven’t found a way around this, but I have found that I’ve gotten used to (and even started to like) the Gap Always Skinny.
What brands have you liked best?
