Best Straight-Leg Maternity Jeans | Mavi Serena Secret Fit Belly™ 5 Pocket Slim Leg Maternity Jeans
I bought my very first pair of Mavi jeans when I was in eighth grade … Okay, my mom bought them for me. But all the girls in my grade were wearing them, and I just had to have a pair for myself. Fast-forward many years later (not disclosing how many years later): Imagine my surprise when a very trendy girlfriend of mine had the cutest pair of maternity jeans on – and they were Mavi! Just like in middle school, I had to have a pair for myself. What makes these slim-legged jeans so special? Besides the supremely comfortable full belly panel, they are extremely well made, blended with spandex for a comfortable stretch, and have a dark wash with the perfect amount of distressing for a day-to-night look.
