Maternity Pants

Does anyone else just hate how they feel when you put them on?

I can't stand to wear them, in fact I out right refuse to wear them!! They come up way to high on my tummy and are way to stretchy for my liking.

Anyone else?

  • I don't like the ones that go up halfway my belly or "over" my belly. The ones that just ride under the belly aren't too bad.

  • I like the pants that just stretch around the bottom of my belly- I can't stand the buttons on pants anymore being 40 weeks. LOL

  • I actually simply love maternity pants.

    Perhaps you should look into the ones that just have a couple of little stretchy things on the sides. There are several different types.

    Another option could be wearing sweat pants one size to large, or even yoga pants. Same thing. I wore those until it got to hot out.

  • I am 20 weeks and just had to give in a buy them a couple weeks ago. my regular pants still fit, but hurt when I sit maternity pants it is. I bought the secret fit belly ones from motherhood and they are comfy and all. for now when I am not all that big, I fold down the belly panel so they fit like the underbelly ones but I don't have to buy more later, just wear them with the stretchy part all the way up.

    I still think they are ugly though lol
