Tall and plus size maternity pants? Arghhh!!


I was wondering if any of you are struggling with the same issue. I am tall (almost 5ft 11in) and plus size -only xxl on my bottom half but I cannot!!! find maternity pants anywhere !!!!
I can find shirts even if they're not maternity - the nowadays fashionable tunics and wide boho skirts work awesome! - but what about pants?? Regular plus size pants that are bigger in size just don't work, they'd fall off of my bottom and they won't grow with me..I can't wear leggings and sweatpants for long because I live up North, near the arctic circle!!
And while I love experimenting, I won't be able to learn to sew well enough in a matter of few weeks to make a maternity pants or two for myself before the cold weather comes I lived down south last time I was succesfully pregnant and never really needed "regular" length pants, it was always so freakin' hot. Never realized I'll run into this issue (don't even get me started on plus size maternity wintercoat..or snow pants!!)

Is there anyone else struggling with this along with me??? Have you found a hidden treasure online store that carries what we so desperately need? If not, what do you do?
Short of wearing regular plus size maternity pants with much shorter inseams than what I need (and adding some REALLY long boots to cover my calves ROFLMAO) I just don't know what to do!!!!!!

ugh yeah me. I am the same height as you and other than going up a few sizes in shop tall ranges and sucking in the extra material with a bella band... I have no idea. Luckily I am a dress and boho girl, but colder weather is 'a' coming.

Old Navy has plus sized maternity pants in short, regular, and tall on their website. They have both full-panel and below the belly styles so you can pick what is comfortable. And their stuff is not expensive at all. I'm not sure how much it would cost to ship to you,though!

im 5ft 11 and shop in Marks and Spencers. The have these trousers that are not in the maternity rage but they have an elasticated waist band and are sooo comfy they are 25. Think New look do a range as well, but its true there is not enough for tall pregnant woman!

next regular is to fit 31in inside leg and the X length is for 33in inside leg. i find their clothes to be good sizing if anything maybe slightly generous.

I've got the same problem, 5'10 and size 20/22. I got some lovely South maternity jeans which is a make you can get from Very and Littlewoods catalogues. Also, Next say they do a 22L but I haven't seen any in stock yet! Dorothy Perkins usually do a longer leg size too.

It's difficult though, I've mainly just been wearing leggings.
