Jeans

I am wondering what you did after your pregnancy. When your maternity jeans were still your best option but didnt fit perfectly anymore? Mine fall down, a lot, and its really annoying when I am wearing the baby with the Moby and cant pull them up >.< Is there a trick that I havent heard yet? Some thing like the trick to wear your pre-pregnancy jeans longer in the first trimester, the rubber band around the button, KWIM? I have the bull belly stretch top, FYI. I am 4 months post partum and have a super saggy belly, and had a c-section. Buying new jeans isnt really an option for a few more months but its getting cold. Sorry, I'm babbling now...


So really, how do I keep my maternity jeans from falling down?

 Honestly, I would just buy a couple cheap pair of jeans for now.  I wouldn't know how to keep them up.  or you can try a shapewear cami and your regular jeans.

My regular jeans are now two sizes to small and don't go past my butt. I already said new jeans aren't an option and I can't nurse in my shapewear cami, thank you though.

I wore my maternity jeans until they were falling off because I didnt want to get new ones either. I didnt fit into my prepreg jeans yet, but I couldnt take it and had to buy new ones. I found inexpensive pairs for $9.99 at Old Navy. I really cant think of any tricks but hopefully someone else has suggestions.

I just got cheap ones like at Ross in a size that fit my current figure.

Nice :) that is a good price. I doubt ill find a good price right now, at the beginning of the cold season.

Try NYDJ (Not Your Daughter's Jeans).  They are higher rise and you can get them on Ebay for a reasonable price.

Give it a shot, you never know. Retailers are still trying to get rid of spring/summer 'washes' or colors..

What about buying a Bella Band...target sells them...or at least used to. I would think the elasticity of it would help keep your pants from falling down.

I didn't wear my maternity jeans. I bought a few pair of cheap yoga pants and wore those for mnths until I was able to wear other things.

Lol, I did that my first pregnancy. But it got rather annoying and so I asked DH for jeans this time. Motherhood Maternity happened to have a really good sale :)
