In the most recent episode of our new how-to and DIY series on Youtube, Easy(ish), we gathered six popular brands of maternity jeans and tested them for fit, comfort, style and value. Watch our mammas—Trisha, Rayna and Anna—try on each pair, then squat, dance and dish their honest opinions. We tallied up all of the scores (rated out of five) and found a clear winner—you definitely want to pick up this pair!
All of the maternity jeans we tested can be found below. All the moms are wearing the Maternity Pure Body crew tee from The Gap in black. Please keep in mind that inventory changes quickly. If the retailer is out of a certain size or style, you can usually find something very similar on their site.
Forever Fit Skinny Maternity + Post Pregnancy Jeans
Rating: 4/5 stars
These distressed, black skinnies have the full belly band, and are designed so you can remove it post-pregnancy (just take out the stitches). You will end up with a low rise jean when you take out the panel, and it has a real functioning fly. (Bonus: All the pockets are actual pockets!) They also have an extension tab on the side so you can adjust their fit as your belly grows (just like those button tabs you find in toddler jeans). They’re made of cotton and spandex and are machine washable. They’re available in a smaller range of sizes (from 2 to 12), but they also carry plus sizes. Helpful tip: Keep an eye out for Petite and Tall sizes!
