Maternity Waist Styles

Maternity Jean Waist Style

There are a variety of waist styles for maternity jeans to suit every growing belly.  

Under the Bump - Adjustable
An under the bump fit sits just below your bump and is usually accompanied by a 
draw string mechanism in the waist band, that allows the trousers to be drawn in or let out according to your bump size.
Under the Bump - Elasticated Sides
An under the bump fit sits just below your bump and is usually accompanied by a draw string mechanism in the waist band, that allows the trousers to be drawn in or let our according to your bump size. In this variety extra comfort is added in the form of 
stretchy side panels, fabric that will grow and stretch along with you.

On the Bump - Front Only Belly Band
An on the bump fit offering a low to mid waist band around the 
front of your trousers for medium bump support. 
On the Bump - Full Waist Band
An the bump fit offering a low to mid waist band around the 
entire waist for medium bump support. It is a great comfort choice for keeping your jeans in position on your hips, particularly for Mums who do a lot of bending down!
Over the Bump - Mid Rise Belly Band
A variation on the full over the bump fit, this slightly slimmer version offers a 
medium sized elasticated bump band that rises to just above your belly button. As with the full bump band, this can be folded down in the first months of pregnancy, although is usually comfortable as is.


Over the Bump - High Rise Band
A full over the bump fit offers a 
full sized elastic bump band that rises to just below the breast. In your first trimester you may find it hard to believe that the bump band could be filled to full capacity! Most bands are designed to be folded in half during the early weeks and extended as your bump reaches epic proportions!

Maternity Jean 'Leg Style'

Shopping for your pregnancy shape is extremely difficult. If you are lucky enough to be ‘all baby’, congratulations! If your body is in flux, here are some hints and tips to help you make that decision:

Style Description
Boot Cut Tailored or wider leg trousers are perfectly suited to the apple / pear shape. They lengthen your legs giving good balance with your top half. Conversely, if you naturally lack curves, jeans with back pockets and styles with flare or boot cut legs create the illusion of curves and a rounder bottom. Unfortunately boot cut can make a shorter leg appear shorter.
Skinny A super fashion statement and suitable for both the straight up and down and the curvy shape. A great option for the petite figure, skinny fits will lengthen the leg.
Straight Leg For the hour glass, curvy figure, fitted jeans will beautifully accentuate your curves. Ultra-tapered styles work by bringing hips and thighs into proportion. Again straight leg styles will lengthen the leg.
Jegging During pregnancy you may want to marry up your need for comfort as well as style. Jeggings offer you the best of both worlds. Think of your favourite skinny jeans, but with softer stretchier fabric that will fit like a glove – in your last trimester this will be important to you.
Boyfriend and Dungarees Wider leg trousers are perfectly suited to the apple / pear shape / plus size. Quite a casual look, these styles are great for skimming lumps and bumps, enhancing your butt! Note, they should appear baggy and may cling to bigger thighs!
Denim Patterns Vertical lines down the length of your pants help to slim the thighs and can create the illusion of length on the shorter leg.
