New Look Maternity Jeans – Review

March 23, 2015 2

As your bump is ever-expanding, you’ll probably find that you can no longer get away with your regular jeans, particularly skinny jeans! I felt uncomfortable in mine around 12 weeks, but for some it’s sooner than that and for some it’s later.

At that stage, you’ll definitely want to start the fun that is shopping for maternity jeans. I have to say that my best maternity wear buy so far, are my New Look Skinny Maternity Jeans. I started wearing these around 12 weeks and am still wearing them now at 20 weeks and can see there’s still plenty of room for growth.

These jeans are under the bump and the thick, soft, elasticated waistband is all the way round the jean, rather than just at the front. I find this gives me a more flattering fit and doesn’t push in against my love-handles, so I have a smooth silhouette (important when you’re curvy with hips like me!).

They are super soft and super comfy and just pull-on – so you couldn’t get any easier than that! They’re not really denim, they’re more cotton but definitely look like nice black jeans…they just are more comfortable and have more give.

I am a size 12-14 pre-pregnancy, but I’m curvy with hips, so always struggle finding jeans any way. With New Look, I tend to be a size 14 on the bottom half, so that’s the size I went for with these maternity skinny jeans…and I was bang on. They fit great.

At only £19.99 they’re an absolute bargain too! I think they’ll see me right through pregnancy too, from what I can tell.

These aren’t the best photos, but might give you an idea.

I’m still on my quest to find great maternity jeans, but so far I’m happy with these.

    Loving my Topshop soft black skinny jeans (‘Leigh’) – as I have short legs, I always struggle with jeans being too long but these are ankle grazers so fit my little legs perfectly. They are super soft and comfy and sit underneath my bump nicely. Would highly recommend them although they are a bit on the pricey side at £38… xx

      Thanks Kirsty – that’s really useful. Hadn’t looked at TopShop myself, so will be sure to check them out! You’ll have to tweet me a pic of you wearing them to @DribbleBlog or tag me in on Instagram. x
