Trust the reviews that say these pants won't stay up. I read those reviews and thought I wouldn't have the same problem because I have a big butt and have never had a problem holding pants up. But you can't move a muscle without these pants falling down. A lot. When I bend down to pick up my toddler half of my butt is exposed. The pants are plenty tight so a smaller size wouldn't fare any better - the problem is with the type or quality of the elastic band. I can't even wear them around the house because it's so uncomfortable to have pants hanging halfway off your butt all the time. I thought maybe the problem would get better after drying them but it actually got worse (maybe the dryer loosened the elastic?) Now I can't return them because I've washed and dried them. They are unwearable - I consider them a total waste of money.
Like other reviewers, these jeans are terrible and do not stay up. I wish I had known and could return. My last pregnancy I lived in my Target jeans but I can’t even wear these just hanging at home. $30 down the drain.
Awful fit. I bought when I wasn't yet too far along so I figured the jeans would fit better as my belly grew. Nope, save yourself the trouble, these jeans will not stay up no matter what size, shape, or bump you have. Wish I could return them but now that I waited to see if they would work while my bump and hips where biggers now I'm beyond the return timeframe. Seriously worse maternity jeans ever.
I hate these jeans so much. At 22 weeks they were uncomfortable and at 36 weeks they are still uncomfortable. The elastic inset doesn’t have any soft fabric on the inside, so the elastic rubs against the skin around my hips and after a couple hours of it all I can think about is taking these stupid pants off. I did find they fit as I expected, I chose my pre pregnancy size and they fit just fine. Problem is there’s nothing holding them up (and I have a pretty good size bum that can pick up where some pants slack off) and I find myself having to stop every few minutes to hike them back up. I just wore them out for 30 minutes and was constantly stopping to pull them up. I am probably going to burn these stupid pants. Don’t bother.
