For people who have had jeans with the elastic in the sides, did you still get a muffin top? I'm very self conscious of mine (but I also have some ovarian cysts which are causing me pain) so I wasn't sure if they would dig in at all? I also usually tend to look like I've put on weight, not pregnant till about 6 months, so I'm trying to minimise that as I have low self confidence and poor body image.
To answer this the just jeans ones also have an adjustable elastic inside at the hip (as well as the stretch panel at pocket) - kinda of like you get in kids jeans. So you can make them feel loose or firm. Even at 9 months mine never felt too tight so no chance of a muffin top :-)
