Maternity shopping nightmare!!!

I am so so so frustrated! I am in my third trimester and all I want is ONE pair of nice looking maternity jeans that fit nicely! I am a plus size woman----wear a size 20 long. It has been such a struggle finding jeans. I took an hour long drive to the nearest maternity store and came home empty handed. Explain to me why they had LONG pants in the normal section BUT didn't offer LONG in the plus size section. So when I found pants that fit nicely in the waist, they were high waters, several inches too short. Do they think all plus size women are short!?!? I need pants with a 35 inseam. Makes no sense....and I'm very discouraged :-(

Sorry for the rant...just a very frustrated mama. If ANYONE has ANY suggestions on where I can find plus size maternity jeans in TALL/LONG sizes then I'll take all the help I can get. I've checked old navy and they only go up to size 18 in long sizes (unless I'm not looking in the right place). I've also checked numerous other websites. I'm up for any help :-) Thanks for listening!

No advice but i wish you good luck. I wear a 35 in inseam too and finding jeans that are long enough and fit in the waist and butt is a big "B"

Thanks :-) I'll look into it now! Do they have maternity clothes as well as just plus size?

You may need to get crafty. Get a pair of pants that you can pull over your bum. Buy a belly band. Cut the pants off right below the zipper and sew the belly band on.

I can't help you but am also tall and feel your pain. I never even got tall maternity clothes- ended up in lots of skirts. It's absurd enough trying to shop for clothes normally. Wish you the very best luck!

check out thrift stores!!! some are really good and it will probably be pretty cheap too!!! they are good for off sizes since most people have someone to give stuff like maternity stuff to but if you don't have a common size then you donate it!!!
