Good only when wearing a belt and after cutting off the top panel
These are flattering jeans from the hips down - but I wish they d stay up. I m forever pulling them up. If they had the elastic straps & buttons like your black bootleg trousers that would make a huge difference.
Also to be properly under bump the denim part at the front needs to be an inch shorter. Yes I know I m tall but this needs to fit bumps!
The top fabric panel is so long I end up tucking the back of it under my bra!
The elastic band at the top is so thick and unflattering that I can t wear many tops over it - it shows and as it s so high is inches wider than my under-bra measurement so pokes out at the front. Also the main wide band isn t helpful - it could be stretchy/clingy but isn t it just sits there.
I have had to constantly pull up first the demin jeans then rearrange the band and then finally get the top I m wearing looking good again.
I have to wear them with an elastic belt just to hold them up even though they re the right size.

The belly band on this pant is too heavy! It s a vey thick and long cotton material. The legs are tiny (so don t buy if you have thick thighs). I bought this pants early in my pregnancy waiting for my prego bump only to be sadly disappointed...Not only did I pay 79bucks for a pair of pants I would never wear but I was told I can not refund them because it s pass 30 days! I will CAREFULLY shop from this site from now on.

Nice style, poor execution
I bought these early in my pregnancy because they were more flattering than the other pair of jeans. The band was made of a heavy cotton, which did not form to the skin. After getting them home and trying them on again, the band began to rip away from the jeans. Upon closer inspection, I noticed the band was poorly sewn to the jeans and would continue to rip. Given that when I sat down, they rode down my butt (due to the low rise), not having the band to give coverage was not an option. As a result, I returned them with my complaints and had to buy the only other jeans LTS carried for maternity, which I did not feel good in and which I dreaded wearing. These jeans needed a more spandexy band and the band needs to be better sewn to the jeans.

The jeans are really nice in terms of colour and look but they are a poor fit...there is no stretch in the denim so the waistband cuts into the bottom of my bump and there is no elastic in the huge over the bump panel so they continuously fall down. The material over the bump is also quite think so has torn all along the stitching as I pull the snug jeans up. Not a great buy

I ve found these really flattering and comfortable. When will you start doing maternity tops as tired of having cold wrists whilst pregnant!!

Awful jeans. Very disappointing
As the previous two reviews have said these jeans look great and are of a great quality. Unfortunately, they are an awful fit.
I have compared these jeans to my pre-pregnancy jeans and the difference between the height from the crotch to the waist band is only an inch different.
The material for these jeans is a beautiful colour but not stretchy, so there is no give in them. This means that the tightest part of the jeans is right across your middle where you expand the most making them extremely uncomfortable.
I am only 19 weeks pregnant (second pregnancy so showing earlier) and i actually can t wear these and i only bought them this week. I will have to return them. It is so hard to find jeans that fit longer legged girls and i had such high hopes for them, but i was sorely disappointed.
Please LTS, take note of the comments and make jeans that are more suitable for a growing bump (and stretchy!).

Lovely fabric but poor fit
Jean section fabric is nice, seems very soft to th touch. Unfortunately it is cut straight across below the hip line at the back and the front, and the panel at the top is really baggy, meaning there is nothing to hold them up and they keep falling down even though they fit snugly around bottom and thighs. If you ve got hips, don t bother.

Only useful for very short part of pregnancy.
Great colour and they look smart when they fit. However, this isn t for long. I bought these early on and the stretchy part to cover bump was a bit of a pain. In fact, at 36 weeks it still doesn t fit properly around the ribs (too baggy). Having the belt hooks is great as the jeans tended to drop down without a belt early on. Since about 25 weeks they became uncomfortably tight on my lower bump and bending down became impossible. Great length though. They should have some stretch to them but there isn t any.

I ordered these pants after reading the poor reviews for the bootcut maternity pants LTS also offers. I like how the pants have a modern, non-maternity look (they look like regular slim jeans from the waist down.) I ordered my regular pre-pregancy size and through the hips and legs the fit is what I expected. However, I wish the band was made out of a more elastic/spandex type material. The band is cotton and not very tight fitting (although in a smaller size the hips of the jeans would be too tight). The band tends to stretch a bit and it actually ripped away from the jeans in a small spot in the back on the first day I wore them. I probably did pull the jeans up by the band, but I was not pulling roughly or doing anything I don t do wearing my other pants. On a positive note, these jeans do have belt loops all the way around so maybe I ll wear a belt next time to prevent futher troubles.

uncomfortable and ugly colour
Didn t fit properly and denim has no stretch in it. Really tight to get into but baggy around knees and butt. Awful colour - like a dirty rusty blue.

Whilst I want to be fashionable in my pregnancy like every other mum, these were so skinny it was uncomfortable. Nobody wants to be heavily pregnant in a pair of skin tight jeans! I order my usual size and have not put on any weight other than my bump, so I think it is safe to say these come up on the very small side. They also had a hole in on arrival so I will definitely be sending them back when I go into town tomorrow!
