Maternity Jeggings

Last week saw the arrival of my first parcel from Pretty Pregnant – the latest addition to their site – Jeggings! I have to say I was pretty apprehensive at the thought of trying to squeeze my ever expanding bottom half in to something usually associated with the supermodels of this world.

Looking at them I have to say my first thought was that they were tiny and I wouldn’t even be able to get in them, never mind feel confident enough to wear them out of the house but not one to shy away from fashion I took a deep breath and gave them a go…

So the trial began! I decide I would wear them for work – that way I could get a full days wear and review them in a real life situation.

As I pulled them on I was still unconvinced that my bum would fit but I was surprised to find that the stretchy material more than accommodated. The cut of the jeggings at the waist allows your bump to fit comfortably over the top whilst the rise at the back still manages to cover your hips and allows you to sit happily without exposing yourself.

These are so comfortable – even more so than my trusty maternity jeans from last time around - which have unfortunately started to cut in to my tummy when I sit down. Bad times.

The great thing about these jeggings is that they can be dressed up or down and potentially worn for any occasion – whether it be to work, a day shopping or a night out with the girls.

This time round I wore my trusty gladiators with a long t-shirt and I got so many compliments. In fact my friend even asked if she could get away with wearing a pair even though she isn’t pregnant!
I’m planning a night out soon so I’ll do a special feature on ‘maternity jeggings - ways to wear’ so you can get an idea of how you can make these fab jeggings a part of your capsule maternity wardrobe.

So what’s the verdict then?

A definite pregnancy must have – the soft stretchy material is perfect for sensitive ‘pregnancy skin’ they fit in all the right places and they’ll last you right through to the end of your pregnancy and those few weeks after baby arrives. What are you waiting for? Go get yourself a pair!
