PSA: Really comfy maternity jeans
I’ve had some inquiries about the jeans I’m wearing in this pregnancy update photo. I got them at the Gap early this year but I’m pretty sure they don’t carry them anymore. I did a quick check on their website and found that they now have eight pairs of jeans and at least 3 pairs of pants with this waist-style, which they call a "Roll Panel." (They also come in corduroy!)
The Roll Panel is a strip of soft stretchy fabric that you can fold down or pull over your belly, depending on the kind of coverage you need. Lately, I need to pull it up high but I have to admit that they fall down a little because my belly’s gotten so big. I’ve worn these jeans since the very early days of my pregnancy when I had no belly to speak of but when my other jeans were too tight in the waist. They will also be really great to wear once the baby is born. A caveat- they’re not exactly cheap (~$64) but you will get a lot of wear out of them.
I have to say that I’ve been really spoiled by maternity pants. They are so much more comfortable than styles with a waistband that can dig in, even at your normal weight.
