Any maternity pants suggestions?
Mostly I'm just wearing non-maternity skirts with elastic waists that I wear under my bump, and just pair them with a shirt that's long enough to still meet the skirt when I raise my arms.
In general, I've just had bad luck with jeans--I think the material is too heavy to be held up by a stretchy panel that is meant to accommodate changing sizes. I did find a pair of lightweight corduroy pants at Kohl's (Motherhood brand), but they do have the panel that stops mid stomach and so it can create a dent depending on where it hits.
I don't like narrower elastic bands; maybe because most of what i have is hand-me-downs, but they always wind up riding low (maybe too big I guess), and some of them have messed up elastic. The pants I like don't have elastic in a tube, instead it's just stretchy fabric.
They also make me look fat because of all that baggy extra cloth in the front thigh, hanging straight down from my belly.
I hate maternity pants because the panel ones, never have the stretchy part go low enough... my uterus swells right on down to my pubic bone, and when I sit, those things cut into me down there.
Same with the wide band types, because the regular, closer-fitting cloth always binds me just above the pubic bone. I need soft and stretchy all the way down to my crotch!
Anyone know of such? Otherwise it's these fat looking too-short fleece pants til mid-January! Very unflattering.
I do have a couple of pairs from JC Penney that I like and wear too, but they have a half-panel and I can see that they will start making the infamous belly dent as soon as my belly gets any bigger! I can't stand the dent either.
DDCC to share my experience with motherhood maternity.
My last pregnancy I purchased clothes there using my debit card. I'm not even sure how this is legal but they sold my card number to a magazine company. That magazine company charged me for a magazine subscription without my knowledge or consent. When I called them and inquired how they got my debit card number they told me they recieved it from a purchase I made at motherhood maternity!
