Am I missing something or is it just because I have an insanely short torso...
All my mat pants fit fine when standing, but sitting they are all putting pressure on my abdomen and it hurts.
I have 1 pair of the thick elastic band kind and two "secret 3 in 1" belly panel ones. I can't go buy new ones again!
They fit fine in all places so they aren't too small. Next size up is way too big.
I sit all day at work, and on my commute, so I can't really stand at my desk...
have you tried adjusting them so they "sag" a little before you sit down? thats my only thought. but i have short legs not torso and i don't really have that problem with maternity pants. look for some that are stretchy all over? ebay to see i there are some you can't find styles of already?
I tended to prefer wearing them under my belly because the belly panel or the really thick waist felt too hot. Between what I'd bought and what I'd been given, I only really liked wearing 2 of the 15 pairs. It is difficult because you don't really know what you want when you start buying clothes.

Even if I pull them down so they are below my underwear line (literally, below my pubic hair line) they are still uncomfortable....Ug.....
