My Favorite Pair of Maternity Jeans

For the most part, I completely despise maternity jeans. I don’t know what it is about the way I’m built, or maybe it’s the construction of the jeans, but they never (ever) fit properly.

My primary complaint is that they never stay up. Not joking, I have a perpetual plumber butt hanging out of backside when I wear jeans. If it was up to me, I would live in either leggings or sweatpants. Or better yet, no pants at all. Maternity jeans just make me angry.

When I was pregnant with my son (about two and a half years ago), I went to a kids consignment sale that had a small rack of maternity clothes. Of course I took a look through, to see if there was anything good stashed between the ugly and dated 1995 jean overalls. I know you know what I’m talking about…

Anyway, on that beautiful fall morning, in a crowded convention hall, I struck maternity gold.

Friends, I found a pair of Citizens for Humanity maternity jeans (typically upwards of $200) for only $30! And as my luck would have it, they had already been professionally tailored and hemmed up to fit me perfect!

I’ll admit, I’ll never advocate spending $210 for a pair of jeans, especially jeans that you will only wear for six months at best, but whoa baby, these jeans pretty much rock!

Do they stay up perfectly? Well, not exactly, but they fit the best out of anything I’ve tried. Would I pay $250 for a pair? Um, knowing what I know now, still probably not (because I’m super frugal and don’t have that kind of cash laying around for maternity jeans). But I would easily pay more than $30, that’s for sure.

But you guys, these jeans are awesome.

Have you ever scored a maternity deal almost too good to be true? How about something awesome for new baby?

Do share, I love a good thrifting story…
