How to Choose Maternity Jeans in the UK - Buying Guide

Shopping for maternity jeans doesn't have to be complicated if you know what you're looking for. In this section we will cover the most important things to consider to help you look resplendent throughout your pregnancy. 

Whether Low, Mid or High, Pick Your Favourite Rise

Whether Low, Mid or High, Pick Your Favourite Rise

You've probably come across jeans being referred to as low, mid, or high rise, but do you know what it actually means? 


The rise refers to the distance from the seam in between your legs to the top of the waistband. Low rise jeans are perfect for those with shorter torsos as there is literally less fabric, whereas mid-rise pairs have slightly more to them with their cut hitting right at the hips.


High-rise jeans are often the most flattering option, sitting right at your belly button or just below which defines your waist and makes your legs look longer. Your height and size is a good thing to consider when deciding which rise will be the best for you during pregnancy.

Choose a Style of Maternity Waistband to Suit Your Bump

You'll have a few options when it comes to the waistband and bump support of your maternity jeans, the intricacies of which are worth getting clued up on. Hopefully the jeans you buy will be with you throughout pregnancy and into the future, too, so it's crucial to choose the right ones.

Across-Bump and Over-the-Bump Bands Keep You Feeling Supported and Secure

Across-Bump and Over-the-Bump Bands Keep You Feeling Supported and Secure

Bump bands can vary from small ones covering just across the bump, to over-the-bump bands covering the whole tummy. Which one you choose will depend on what stage of pregnancy you are at, what else you might be wearing with the jeans, and generally what you find the most comfortable. 


Made from stretch jersey, cotton, or a cotton blend, bump bands start from the waistband and keep you feeling secure and comfy. In the first months you may want a thinner, smaller or more discreet band, especially if your tummy is more on show. 


When you're further along in your pregnancy, however, your jeans might fit better wearing an over-bump band, and you may welcome the added tummy support, too!

Elasticated Waists Are an Easy and Convenient Feature in the Early Stages of Pregnancy

An alternative to a bump band is an elasticated waist, which looks and feels more like the waistband of "normal" jeans. Because of their minimalism, they can be a little easier to get on and off and will feel slightly cooler in the height of summer. 


If you're looking for more minimal support, jeans with elasticated inserts above the front pockets are even more discreet than an elasticated waist. They're also a good pick if you like to tuck in your t-shirts and tops.


However, they are probably better for the earlier stages of pregnancy as they don't provide quite as much stretch and give as bump bands, which you might miss when you're further along.

Consider the Cut and Its Material for Maximum Comfort

With so many different styles and cuts of maternity jeans available nowadays, it's pretty much a case of swapping your favourite pair for their bump-friendly equivalent. However, depending on which one you go for, we have a couple of pointers to ensure maximum comfort as well as good looks. 

For Skinny Jeans, Look for Soft and Stretchy Materials to Stay Comfortable Day to Day

For Skinny Jeans, Look for Soft and Stretchy Materials to Stay Comfortable Day to Day

Stretchiness is one of the most important factors when buying maternity jeans, especially if you're hoping to wear them all the way through your pregnancy and possibly afterwards, too. 


Skinnier jeans can seem intimidating during pregnancy but high-performance stretch denim does exactly what it says on the tin. Alternatively, lots of maternity jeans are advertised as "soft and stretchy" which is another good claim to look for in slimmer jeans.

Choose a Relaxed Fit for Jeans Made With Firmer Denim

Choose a Relaxed Fit for Jeans Made With Firmer Denim

On the other hand, some styles of maternity jeans are made with a firmer, less stretchy and more structured cotton in order to achieve a certain look. Straight or wide leg jeans and jeans with a relaxed fit are often made with firmer cotton, which is a good thing to be aware of when you are shopping online.


If hardier or thicker material is what you're into, go for a very relaxed or slouchy fit or even buy the next size up. Comfort is key!

Comfort Is Everything: Get the Right Size and Check the Range Available

Comfort Is Everything: Get the Right Size and Check the Range Available

At the end of the day, no matter how much of a fashionista you usually are, in pregnancy you'll probably want to go for maximum comfort at all times! 


However, it's actually a common misconception that you have to go a size (or a few sizes) up when buying maternity jeans, as features such as a bump band or a stretchier material should totally allow for your growing tummy. 


That said, we realise it's normal for our own body size and weight to change during pregnancy, so be sure to check the size range of the brands you love.


Some brands have pregnancy ranges that go up to size 16, whereas others like ASOS not only go up to size 20+ but have plenty of options in tall and petite, too. Whatever wild and wonderful things your body decides to do during this time, you can still find your perfect pair by following this guide.
