Expecting a baby? Congratulations! In addition to the fun of decorating the nursery and stocking up on tiny onesies, moms-to-be also get to do some shopping for themselves. Your pre-pregnancy clothes can accommodate your growing belly for a few months, of course, but most of us ultimately need to hit the maternity department. One pregnancy wardrobe staple that should be on your must-buy list? A great pair of skinny maternity jeans. Actually, make that a few pairs!
Maternity clothing has come a long way over the years, and maternity jeans especially so. Today’s maternity jeans are available in the same stylish skinny cut, colors and washes — and frequently from the same beloved brands — as your regular jeans. Find the perfect pair — or pairs — and you’ll reach for them with the same frequency as you did before you needed a stretchy waistband, because skinny maternity jeans offer the same chic, fitted style that your regular skinny jeans do — just with room for your changing body.
What makes maternity jeans different, of course, is that most styles are pull-on and pull-off and feature a belly band that molds to and supports your burgeoning mid-section.
We’ve rounded up the best skinny maternity jeans to add to your pregnancy (and if we’re being honest, postpartum)wardrobe. Check out the options below, and find the perfect pair to match your style. Best of all: You don’t even need to get off the couch!
