    Default Maternity Jeans

    I'm after a decent pair of maternity jeans. I'd rather skinny leg, but am open to suggestions. My issue is that all the ones I've found are cheap nasty fabric, and I'm only 10 weeks along, so it's not like I have a belly to fill it out yet. I can't wear my regular jeans, they are soooo uncomfortable already and even a size up doesn't feel right or sit right. Does anyone have any suggestions? I just wanna look nice (and I'd rather not advertise the fact that I'm pregnant just yet so don't wanna buy the soft roll down type pants). Currently feeling frumpy with a spare tyre thing happening over my regular jeans

    I've only dashed through target (2 feral boys unwilling to shop), and I couldn't find their maternity section (I know they do a line, just don't know where they'd placed it). I didn't know pumpkin patch did maternity wear so ill have to check that out!
    I tried jeans west (I think?!), and they were pretty average and I left feeling blergh (I hate shopping at the best of times for myself).
    Thanks for the suggestions

    I got a cheap pair at Kmart just to roll down ones. I figured they'll do until I get bigger. They were only $15 and look nice.
    You could always try the belly belts? I've seen them at big w

    Soon maternity make beautiful maternity jeans. I have 2 pairs. I have also bought some really nice ones from Asos.com. I just but my regular size and they fit perfectly. They're about $25 and not the roll down ones (which I don't really like).

    I won't buy maternity jeans online, its too difficult to get the sizing right. One pair I bought were too small, the other pair were like clown pants!

    I have shopped around & the best skinny leg maternity jeans are from Jeans West or Ripe maternity. They are more expensive, but much better quality in my opinion!

    The ASOS website has some awesome skinny leg maternity jeans...I got three pairs, all for about $30 each. They look great, are super comfy and have an adjustable waistband, with ribbing in the pocket section, instead of the great big wide elastic band around the top.

    I've found themn to be good quality too, made from normal stretch denim, rather than that weird light demin-y type stuff.
