Is your bulging belly getting in the way of rocking your favorite pair of jeans? Don’t worry: No matter how big the bump, your denim-wearing days are actually far from over. That’s because denim brands and the maternity world have collided to gift us with jeans that work wonders on our new growing figures. In fact, maternity jeans are likely to become the core of our maternity wardrobe. And though shopping for jeans is never an easy feat–least of all when you have a baby growing inside of you–you can and will find the perfect pair that will carry you all the way to birth in style.

Take one of our favorite obsession-worthy maternity brands, Hatch, for example. They just launched a brand new line of in-house maternity denim that’s so good, it might even make your non-pregnant friends jealous. The collection includes three basic-but-better styles (crop, slim, and boyfriend!) that all feature their brilliant “wedge” design, allowing the jeans to sit comfortably below your bump. (There’s also an impossibly adorable overall style that’s not to be missed!) And to make them extra special, each piece is finished off with a custom designed interior panel to record your due date.

To help you in your hunt, we’ve linked them here and scoured the internet for other top-rated favorites. From skinnies to overalls, here are 13 of the best maternity jeans for every body type and every budget. Spoiler alert: they are so comfy, you may actually consider wearing them after baby is born.

Hatch Denim Maternity Overall



The Denim Maternity Overall

Is there a more mama-friendly style than overalls? Hardly. They’ve got allllll the pockets, room to move (and grow!) and keep you from hiking up your pants every five minutes. The brand new Hatch’s Denim Maternity Overall offers all that and more. Thoughtful details like adjustable side buttons ensure they’ll fit through each trimester while the back waistband offers a bit of shape and structure. Available in indigo and true white, they can easily pair with sneakers and tees or even heels and cashmere. (TBH, everything pairs with cashmere, doesn’t it?)

Delightfully distressed and designed to wear throughout your entire pregnancy, Hatch’s Boyfriend jeans are nothing short of obsession-worthy. The wash makes them perfect for literally every season and if you keep wearing them long after baby, no one will be the wiser.

Hatch Slim Maternity Jean



The Slim Maternity Jean

A maternity staple if ever there was one! Between the classic fit, versatile dark wash and Hatch’s grow-with-you design that sits below the belly, you’ll reach for these day in and day out. They’re made from a recycled cotton blend that has just a bit of stretch and hit at or above the ankle depending on your height. The best part? They come in three additional washes to cover all your style needs.

Maternity Over-the-Belly Skinny Jeans in Black Sea

Pound for pound, one of my best clothing investments ever was a pair of distressed black jeans from Madewell. The style is super versatile allowing you to pair it with everything from drapey tops and heels to distressed tees and cute sneakers. And let’s be real: They’re the perfect wash for any mama who’s already got a grimy-handed toddler in tow. Reviewers rave about this pair for the comfy over-the-belly panel, stretchy construction that doesn’t get too stretched out and overall look that doesn’t feel like a maternity compromise. (Note they do tend to run a little big, so you may need to size down!)

The Icon Ankle Skinny Maternity Jeans

Like the look without the rips? We love this pair from premium denim brand Joe’s. It’s a staple in their non-maternity line up with its classic skinny fit and perfectly placed back pockets that do amazing things for your booty. The maternity version is also great for mamas who don’t love the over-the-belly panel. These sit below your belly and feature elastic insets at the side to give you room to grow instead. (Alternatively, check out a similar style from 1822 Denim that comes in at less than 1/3 the price!)

Butter Ankle Skinny Maternity Jeans

It’s a pretty bold claim for any kind of denim to call itself “butter,” but this pair truly delivers. Soft and flexible with plenty of stretch, these jeans understand exactly what you need during pregnancy with a fit that feels exactly like your favorite pair of leggings. The length is just a tad bit cropped which admittedly may be too short for those with longer legs, but for short and average mamas they’re ideal.

Nothing fancy, just a super comfy, super stretchy pair of skinny jeans from H&M to prove you wrong: You can sport a bowling ball AND keep on wearing your beloved skinnies. Bonus points for the fact that you don’t have to break the bank to stay true to your style all pregnancy long and that they come in four washes to stock up on.

Secret Fit

Since launching in 2000, the LA-based AG jeans have been a leader in the premium denim space with pieces that focus on fit and fabrication. While a pricey white jean might be risky if you’ve already got a sticky-handed toddler afoot, there’s no denying that a crisp pair of snow-white denim is a fashionista’s must-have. Take the risk, mama. It’s worth it.

The Ingrid Maternity line is always a budget-friendly win. This flattering bootcut style is a current stand out with high marks for comfort, in part because of the clever crossover panel. It sits high on the belly but low on the back for added support.
