Not sure which style is best for you? Our guide should make it easier to choose.
over your bump
Comfy and cosy, over the bump jeans have a wide, soft fabric panel to cover and hug your tummy. As your little one grows, your bump can start to feel a little heavy. Thankfully, these jeans give you great support. They’re ideal if you don’t want to flash your skin when your T-shirt rides up and often feature the low-rise look you love. The panel can also be rolled down, which is particularly handy for early pregnancy or on hot summer days. Super-soft jersey and seam-free bands make these jeans as comfortable as they are stylish. They’ll be your go-to pair from barely there bump right through to those last weeks before your newborn arrives.
under your bump
These versatile jeans sit snugly under your bump, with a wide, elasticated waistband that'll give you extra support as your little one grows. This style is popular with first-time mums and in the early stages of pregnancy. They're a little more revealing than over bump jeans, so it's worth investing in some longer maternity tops. The adaptable waistline means you get a snug fit, whether you're only just showing or on the home stretch. They’re also the perfect post-pregnancy jeans for those first couple of weeks of getting to know your baby.
mothercare's maternity jeans: the perfect fit
Our maternity jeans are designed for your changing shape to give you the perfect fit throughout your pregnancy.
Skinny jeans, popular with first-time mums and in the early stages of pregnancy. They're a little more revealing than over bump jeans, so it's worth investing in some longer maternity tops. They’re also the perfect post-pregnancy jeans for those first couple of weeks of getting to know your baby.
Slightly wider in the leg than skinny jeans and not as fitted at the ankles, straight jeans suit most body shapes. As with skinnies, they’ll see you through from Sunday brunch to mocktails with the girls. Team with a loose shirt, statement jewellery and a spring in your step.
Bootcut jeans flare out slightly at the ankle. They’re very flattering, particularly if you go for a darker wash. Pair them with ankle boots and a lace top for a boho look that'll see you through all three trimesters.
With their relaxed fit, girlfriend jeans are the ultimate in stylish comfort, whether you’re walking the dog or pottering round the shops. Roll up the hems, pair with ballet flats and a Breton and you’re good to go.
