Maternity clothing


5'11, size 16 and hate skinny jeans...

Everywhere I look for 'normal' trousers or jeans, is completely sold out between sizes 12 and 20.

I've managed to get a couple of black from next that are comfy and I'm able to wear to work, but they're slightly top short in the leg and are definitely 'ankle swingers' haha!!

Anyone had similar troubles, or can suggest places to shop? I'm coming up to 23 weeks, and my waist extenders won't last much longer lol xx

H and m do some nice bits think they do a tall and small maternity range ( im on the vertically challenged side!!! ) they sometimes have them in the sale otherwise they are on the slightly more pricey side (but the quality is usually very good ) bit then could always sell them when you're done? Xxx

Was looking at h&m, but website is totally sold out of all trousers that aren't skinny jeans lol.

I'll have to pop into a store when I get the chance lol, thanks xx

I’m not as tall as you but I found that JoJo Maman Bébé maternity clothes come up long in the leg. I found I had to buy a size down though as they are generous in the waist. Unfortunately they’re expensive. The other things that were long enough were leggings from h and m and seraphine.

Finally I got some really long yoga pants but I cut the label out so can’t remember the make! Pretty sure they came from ASOS though.

It’s so annoying that so many places just do one length of maternity trousers when they do different lengths in Normal clothes.

Never heard of jojo maman bebe, but will check out! Thank you!!xx

I got my work maternity trousers from asda. Failing that, leggings and a floaty dress are comfy

Try Asos! !! They have loads. They are online and will do a next day and free returns. If you pay 9.99 you can have free next day for a year. They do loads of lovely stuff, and also do new look maternity too. I lived in tights and jumper dresses x x

I’m planning on just leggings I don’t usually get big didn’t buy maternity with my last 2 pregnancies. Hope you can find somewhere xx

I’ve got all this too come, I’m 5”11 too, but only 8 weeks pregnant, I’m in maternity leggings already as I’m so bloated. I wear a 16/18 normally so finding tall plus sized clothing has always been a bit of a pain, thankfully Matalan do 2 leg lengths in their jeans, but I’m not sure the same applies to their maternity range. Hopefully you find something suitable x
