Maternity Jeans that Fit Before, During and After Pregnancy. (Win a Pair!)

maternity clothes

I had two huge complaints about maternity jeans: 1) They didn’t fit right, and 2) I refused to wear maternity clothes that I would only wear for mere months of my life — and expensive ones, at that. Oh how I would have loved to rock a pair of these brilliant Hope maternity jeans. In fact, I’d probably still be wearing them.

Find out why we love these jeans and how to WIN a pair of your own…

After searching through all of the major department stores, I came to the conclusion that the only well-fitting maternity jeans must be designer. But I absolutely refused to spend hundreds on a pair of maternity jeans to wear for a few months of pregnancy style. Nope. So what did I do? I took an elastic hair tie, fastened it to my pre-pregnancy jeans and wore an extra long shirt to cover my rigged waistband.

Well Salsa Fits My Life now makes the Hope Maternity Jean, which my Family Style colleague, Elina, brilliantly discovered. The skinny jeans come with a detachable waistband that extends through pregnancy, and can then be removed once you’re back to your pre-pregnancy self. And the fact that these designer jeans are going for $114 is actually a deal considering you won’t have to buy an extra pair of maternity jeans to wear and toss.

Still reluctant to spend cash on maternity clothes? (I was!) Leave a comment on our Family Style post and enter to win a pair!

    OK, I may be the only one here with this problem, and more power to the rest of you, but – when I was pregnant, my legs weren’t the same size as they were when I was non-pregnant. I gained weight everywhere, not just in the belly. I mean, I definitely think it’s awesome that these exist for people who look like the model above, but for me they would have been useless, because detachable waistband or not, I would still have been in baggy Sears maternity jeans by month 4.

    I LOATHE maternity clothes, especially pants for the same reason the author mentions – they’re cut horribly! For my first pregnancy with my son and now with my second with my daughter, I’ve mainly gained a belly and (more) boobs so most maternity clothes doesn’t fit me. I refuse to drop $50+ per shirt or $100+ per pair of jeans for clothes that doesn’t look good to get me thru these last few months. recently i’ve taken to going to Kohl’s or other inexpensive shops and buying larger sizes instead or spendy maternity stuff. I’d rather just flaunt my bump than hide it.

    14 weeks also and going to be needing jeans!! We are on #4 and I didn’t really need jeans at the end of my first two because they were both summer babies. My last baby was a winter baby but I started that pregnancy 20 lbs overweight and was in XL (or larger) maternity clothes due to various reasons. Well….before getting pregnant w/ #4 I lost 46 lbs and am due in April so will be needing new smaller maternity jeans. Hope I win a pair of these, that would be so great!! Thanks for having this opportunity!
