The 15 Best Maternity Jeans That Are Actually Comfortable

Available in sizes 25–26 and 30–31.

Joe’s The Lara Ankle Cigarette Maternity Jeans

Jaime B., 44, found the most luck with designer jeans from brands she wore pre-pregnancy, including Joe’s. “They had the perfect amount of stretch to take me from the tiniest bump during the start of my second trimester to full-blown belly at month eight. They were comfortable enough to wear for long days in the city, when I was running (waddling?) around from meeting to meeting.” Most importantly, she says she felt like herself in them. “When you’re pregnant and feeling anything like yourself, you cling to those moments when you do.” After having four kids in five and a half years, she feels she got more than her money’s worth.

Available in sizes 23–24.

9. ASOS Design Maternity Slim Mom Jeans

Cassie S., 34, has ASOS on her shortlist of favorite maternity jeans. The brand has a variety of inexpensive styles, including an under-the-bump waistband—on this relaxed fit pair—for anyone who prefers a low-rise jean option but still wants the comfort of a soft, elastic waist that doesn’t dig into your skin.

Available in sizes 2–16. 

10. Signature by Levi Strauss & Co. Gold Label Maternity Skinny Jeans

Signature by Levi Strauss offers a huge variety of maternity jeans with all kinds of waistband styles and washes. With 4.2 stars and over 17,000 reviews on Amazon, these are a solid go-to for many people. The consensus is that for the price, they’re an excellent choice to have on hand throughout all stages of pregnancy (they run a little big, which you’ll be grateful for later on!).

Available in sizes XS–XL.

11. Spanx Mama Ankle Jean-Ish Leggings

Spanx Mama Ankle Jean-Ish Leggings

I love these maternity jeggings because they look a lot like skinny jeans and are thick and high quality, but they also have enough stretch to actually be comfortable when pregnant. The waistband lies at just the right spot and doesn’t sag or feel constricting. They also really accentuate my butt and make me feel sexy—which has been nice as I’m getting used to my newly visibly pregnant body!

Available in sizes XS–XL.

Cassie S. recommends A Pea in the Pod if you’re interested in splurging on designer maternity jeans. As Jaime B. says, investing in a high-quality pair of pregnancy jeans is a great move if you plan to have multiple kids or know that a pair of great denim will make you feel confident throughout this era of your life. There are a ton of stylish options at the retailer—like these light wash ankle jeans—and you can usually find markdowns to make the prices more palatable.

Available in sizes 25-31.

13. Ingrid & Isabel Denim Maternity Overalls

Ingrid & Isabel Denim Maternity Overalls

In my adult life, I have never been an overalls kind of gal, but wow, these maternity overalls from Ingrid & Isabel completely changed my outlook. Something about my cute bump poking its way out just makes me really love how they look on me (for the first time since I was a kid). They’re also so comfortable: The material is super stretchy, and there are even buttons on the sides that allow you to expand the overalls about two inches, so they can literally grow along with your growing belly.

Available in sizes XS–XL.

14. Motherhood Maternity Indigo Blue Super Stretch Secret Fit Belly Skinny Denim Jean

Multiple pregnant friends have recommended Motherhood Maternity to me for the retailer’s large selection of brands across all price points. These full-panel skinny jeans have 4.2 stars and almost 3,400 reviews on Amazon, with many reviewers pointing out these jeans have a ton of stretch—which comes in handy in the third trimester when your body tends to grow and let’s be honest, swell, faster than ever before.

Available in sizes XS–2X.

15. Jessica Simpson Skinny Leg Maternity Jeggings

Jessica Simpson Skinny Leg Maternity Jeggings

Jessica Simpson maternity jeans come highly recommended by a lot of people. Turns out, they fit well and are durable. “They’re super stretchy and comfortable and did not dig into my sides or cut weird under the belly,” says Dana S., 32. She got hers as a hand-me-down, and they’re still going strong. This skinny leg jegging style has a full over-the-belly panel and lots of stretch throughout.

Available in sizes S, M, L, and 1X–3X.
