why mums love our maternity denim

When it comes to fashion essentials, denim is definitely up there. I certainly can’t get through the week without throwing on my favourite pair of jeans with a cosy jumper or casual tee! But what about when your bump starts to grow and your old faithful pieces no longer fit? Well, that’s where maternity denim comes in.

From sofa days to mocktails with the girls, our denim range has everything you need to look great and feel amazing. Made from super soft fabric in a variety of styles with over and under bump bands, you’re sure to find the perfect fit. Don’t just take my word for it though…here’s why mums love Mothercare's maternity denim.

first, the fabric


Whether you gave much thought to the fabrics in your pre-pregnancy wardrobe, comfort should definitely be a priority when you’re expecting. That’s why the jeans in our maternity denim range are made from only the softest fabrics with added stretch. After all, your little bump isn’t the only one who should have room to wriggle!

Mother of two and lover of all things beauty, Fi (known as Beauty Baby and Me to her followers) tried three pairs and praised all of them for their soft and stretchy fabric. She was understandably thrilled to try them, saying they made her “feel super comfortable at a time when I usually feel about as co-ordinated as a beached whale!!!”

“The skinny cut jean is modern and stylish, and is made in stretch denim for the perfect fit.”

So you see, you simply can’t go wrong when the fabric is right! Whether you’re chasing after a toddling tot or grabbing a moment of peace on the sofa, our maternity jeans will feel fantastic. That’s what all mums deserve.

maternity denim for every style


There’s no doubt that when it comes to fashion, one design certainly doesn’t fit all! That’s why our range of maternity denim comes in different washes, shapes and styles so there’s something for everyone. Just ask mama of three Emily (and writer of family lifestyle blog Emily and Indiana) who once believed our jeans weren’t for her.

“I've always thought Mothercare's maternity range was aimed at the older mum. With very basic and rather 'unstylish' items, that really weren't my style at all. But honestly, I've been really impressed! The denim collection has soo many different styles, that I think would impress even the most style-conscious mama.”

From ripped knees to turn-ups and ankle zips to stitched details, you’re sure to find a pair of jeans for every occasion. What’s more, you can keep wearing them after you give birth and no one would know that they’re maternity denim. Unless of course, you’re pushing a buggy. That might give the game away...

“These would be perfect for so many different occasions, either dressed down...or dressed up for a special occasion!”

keeping comfy with bump bands


For all you expectant mums who are holding out with your favourite pair of pre-pregnancy jeans, Laura (mum of one and author of Laura Knows Lifestyle) knows what you’re going through. “My trusty jeans lasted as long as a hair bobble would stretch to keep them done up and then it suddenly became time to actually buy some maternity jeans.”

It’s for just that reason that bump bands will soon be your best friend. Fitted into all of our maternity denim, they’ll keep you comfortable from the first months through to the last few days and even beyond. That’s why so many mums love our jeans; they’re designed with your growing curves in mind so they’ll always fit just right.

“I would definitely recommend the Mothercare Denim range as all three pairs I’ve tried have been comfortable and practical. They are excellent value for money [and] it’s worth investing in a good pair of maternity jeans.”

Made from only the softest jersey cotton, our seam-free over the bump bands are superbly comfortable. So comfy in fact that Fi forgot she was wearing one! Supportive and gentle on your skin, they prevent unwanted bump-flashing but can also be folded over on hot days. If the rolled-down style is more your thing, our under bump bands provide snug support as you grow. The elasticated waist also makes them perfect for post-pregnancy as your body recovers.

“I am still wearing all of my stretchy maternity jeans now Freya has arrived as none of my pre-pregnancy jeans fit my mum-tum yet.”

finding the perfect fit


As if finding the jeans of your dreams wasn’t hard enough anyway, your changing body can certainly make things trickier. While the stretchy fabrics and range of styles make our maternity denim a perfect fit, there’s something else that helps too. Not only can you find our jeans in the sizes you’d expect, you can also choose a length too!

One mum that certainly benefitted from this feature was Emily. “Mothercare jeans are fab as you can order a size as well as a length - an essential for me as I'm so short! I found that these jeans are definitely true to size, and the length is perfect for me.” So, whether you’re long-limbed or a little on the short side, you’re sure to find your perfect size.

So there you have it, just a few reasons why mums love our maternity denim. As Fi puts it, “There isn’t much more you could ask for really, especially from a reliable brand like Mothercare.” All three mums loved the jeans they tried for their comfort and varying styles, plus their ability to grow with you throughout pregnancy and into parenthood. If that’s not reason enough to go shopping for your new favourite pair of maternity jeans, I don’t know what is!
