    I bought some maternity leggings off asos. I'm a tall and slim size 8-10 usually. bought the leggings in a size 12. they were too big for me for a while but once I got some belly happening and basically after all my normal jeans became too small, I wore the leggings constantly, they took me right through to birth. I put on about 10kg in total in pregnancy.

    they're pretty inexpensive so you could just get a couple of pairs in your next size up and see how you go. the over the bump waistband was pretty generous and leggings are pretty forgiving.

    I bought mine in a maternity starter pack and got the leggings, a long line over the bump singlet and a belly band (all in black). it was great, not sure if that's still available on their site though.

    I never wore jeans during pregnancy. wore my normal ones as long as they would fit (I didn't get far past 12-14 weeks I think) then just switched to leggings.

    This is great info, thanks everyone. I'm only 4 and a half weeks but my lower tummy is so bloated and firm that I find it uncomfortable to sit in jeans all day at work - I have to undo the button! Great idea to get cheaper leggings in different sizes!

    I found asos to be generously sized but pretty thin ( not gr8 if u live somewhere cold). I wore a.lot of supre ones that sat under my bump but i tossed them once.i had.my bub. I'm thinking about getting some.skirted ones from yesstyle this time. Maybe even some fleece lined ones (in canberra it is cold!)

    anyone tried the Target maternity leggings? they have free shipping over a certain spend so was going to try order one in my size and one up in a few different varieties that they stock, then get DH to return the rest. (Dr's orders on bed rest so online shopping here I come :P)

    Jeanswest have a 40% of sale at the moment. I bought 2 pairs of maternity jeans there on Tuesday. You can order online.

    I found their sizes funny though. I'm usually a size 8 in jeans and assumed I might be an 8 or 10 but they were way too big on me. I needed the 6.

    I nearly bought some target tops online until i went into the store and saw how cheap and thin the fabric was. Not sure about the leggings.

    I didn't really like the target stuff although I didn't try the leggings. Jeanswest had some nice clothes.
