Anyone have any advice on where I can find a nice pair of maternity jeans .. Will pay any money at this stage I'm in Dublin this weekend and first time I'm able to face shops .. Looking for something bootcut - with nice ass ( some maternity jeans have a terrible ass) Also what is your favorite maternity shop .. Find some of the boutiques over priced and very dowdy ( but maybe its cause I feel like a beached whale no matter what I put on me) Any advice greatly appreciated ..

Michelle I got a nice pair of Mammalicious ones in Neelo the maternity boutique. They've shops in Limerick and Dublin - mine were only €45 but you could pay up to €245 for mat jeans in there if you want! They were a lovely boot cut AND a nice ass - I was in them at 13wks (with twins) but I've already grown out of them :o( My next purchase will def be another larger pair to accommodate my 2 expanding babies :baby3: :baby3: Good luck!

I got a nice pair in Dorothy Perkins (I have tried the ones with the elastic bits at the side, but find the ones with the stretchy jersey panel all the way round more comfy), they were €40 I think, and they have a good ass and are bootcut too. *)

I have two pairs one from Dorothy Perkins and one from New Look The New look ones sit under the bump with a belt, I find the belt digs into me a bit and don't find them mega comfy The other pair are a sit on the bump and are extremely comfy and very nice jeans too, nice bum and legs, I think anyhow. I got a size smaller than normal but they're still a bit big as I have a small bump so I just put a safety pin :-8

Yeah Tigs, I found the DP ones are a size too big - its been a while since I wore size 10 I can tell you, esp during pg! I still have to keep pulling them up too, but they defo look the best I reckon.

H&M do some very reasonably priced clothes. I got some nice clothes in there for the summer and their bottoms are very comfy too. I went to their Liffey Valley branch.

The mamalicious jeans have the little elastic and button inside the waistband so you can tighten them to suit you - I bought 2 pairs - one full length and the other are just below the knee and just the job in this lovely weather! They are generally about €40-45 which is reasonable too!! Generally shops that sell EXIT clothes sell mamalicious clothing too!

I find the Dorothy Perkins jeans brilliant - have 2 pairs and am rarely out of them. Trousers there are not so good though. Found Dunnes Stores maternity trousers surprisingly comfy and well-made.
