maternity pants....

what brands do you guys like????

i used to love old navy, but im just not feeling it right now. I hate panels on my belly, its probably all in my head, but i feel like it makes my nausea worse. all the no panel ones i have tried (all old navy) the band is too tight and i get a serious muffin top.

i have a zillion pairs of old navy ones that im just going to put on ebay because i dont wear them. i have tried some from Kohl's and some of the department stores, like jcpenny or boscov's, but my butt and thighs are so skinny that they are just so baggy and i dont like them.

suggestions? what are you wearing?

I like the full panel ones when I am bigger and hate the small bands - they push on my stomach and make it look pointy. I like the jeans from Motherhood - that is where I get most of my maternity clothes.

I like the Old Navy no band, below the belly ones when I am smaller like now. But later on when I get huge (remember, I gained 80 with DD), I need something that would go up over the belly and hide the underside Wink . For that I LOVE the Motherhood ones with the stocking like top. A couple of other brands have started carrying them, too. Right now I have the same problem with the butt/ thighs being baggy, but that won't last for long. (I do find that Motherhood makes some capris and stuff that are 'slim fit, I'm wearing a pair right now!) Usually I buy whatever I can find in my size at the thrift store.

I hate the saggy phase. One thing I have to say about maternity jeans is that I always had to pull at them and adjust them. That drives me NUTS!

I liked the full pannel ones at first and then when I was huge at 8ish months I liked the kind that went under the belly. No matter what I hate the kind that are only 1/2 pannel....those just looked so weird on me because you could see an obvious line through my shirt.

I hate the line the most! I'd try to wear dark, loose fitting shirts just to avoid it.

I hate them all, but the tight low elastic band really hurts me. Sad I have mostly clothes friends have given me, so I have no idea where most have come from. I hate the big panel...ugh, I do not like maternity clothes Sad Sorry to be a downer...I don' t like them.

I looooove the Secret Fit Belly jeans/pants from Motherhood. So super comfy, that I found I couldn't wear anything else after I'd worn those. It's a full panel though (but very soft and stretchy and comfy IMO) so some of you may not like that.

With my other babies I always liked the full panel, even early in the pregnancy... but now I can't stand it! I've been rolling the panels down! I mostly wear stuff from Motherhood, although it's a hit or miss with their store. I always feel like all their stuff is ugly when I'm pregnant, and it's when I'm not that they have super cute stuff!

we are going to my IL's this weekend and they have a huge motherhood materinity outlet near them. I did get two pairs of dress pants there last time around. I just always feel like their clothes would make anyone look pregnant. i hate when shirts have that seaming in the front under the bust that makes it tent out. HELLO!!! i already HAVE a belly, thanks for making it look bigger!!!

i will have to see what they have for jeans Smile i have a 34" inseam. the motherhood stores around me so rarely have talls. i will keep my fingers crossed!

YES! Those are the ones. I scour the thrift stores looking just for them!

i dont like the low cut pants late in pregnancy. It gives me BH/contrx. I love the motherhood secret panel jeans.I have two pairs. they are stretchy too so they are comfy up until delivery day. I think they run a little long buti just roll up the cuff one tiem and you dont even notice. I normally dont have a problem with the length of my pants off the rack.

I also love the goucho pants i got from old navy and Target in past pregnancies.
