Grab one of our favorites obsession-worthy maternity brands, Hatch, for example. They just launched a brand new line of in-house maternity denim that’s so good it might even make your non-pregnant friends jealous. The collection includes three basic but better styles (cropped, slim and boyfriend!) which all feature their brilliant ‘wedge’ design, allowing the jeans to sit snugly under your belly. (There’s also an incredibly adorable overall style that you can’t miss!) And to make them even more special, each piece is completed with a custom-designed interior panel to record your due date.

Pound for pound, one of my best clothing investments has been a pair of distressed black jeans from Madewell. The style is super versatile, allowing you to pair it with everything from draped tops and heels to distressed tees and cute sneakers. And let’s be real: this is the perfect wash for any mom who already has a toddler with grimy hands. Reviewers love this pair for the comfortable stomach panel, stretchy construction that doesn’t too much elongated and overall look that does not look like a maternity compromise. (Note that they tend to run a little big so you may need to size down!)

Love the look without the rips? We love this pair from premium denim brand Joe’s. It’s a staple in their non-maternity range with its classic skinny fit and perfectly placed back pockets that do amazing things for your booty. The maternity version is also ideal for mums who don’t like the belly panel. These sit under your belly and feature elasticated side panels to give you room to grow instead. (Alternatively, check out a similar style from 1822 Denim that’s less than 1/3 the price!)

It’s a pretty bold claim for any type of denim to be called “butter,” but this pair definitely delivers. Soft and flexible with lots of stretch, these jeans have exactly what you need during pregnancy with a fit that looks just like your favorite pair of leggings. The length is just a bit short, which admittedly might be too short for those with longer legs, but for petite and medium mums they are ideal.



Nothing fancy, just super comfy, super stretchy skinny jeans from H&M to prove you wrong: you can sport a bowling ball AND keep wearing your beloved skinnies. Bonus points for the fact that you don’t have to break the bank to stay true to your style throughout pregnancy and let them come in four washes to stock up.
