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!
ditto on the next items. i just bought a pair of maternity jeans and smart work trousers from there in the xl section which is for 33in inside leg but i swear they are longer or sit lower on my hips as they drag along the floor and i am 5ft 10. over the bump to so its like i'm getting a hug all day
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!
how does next sizing work been looking on ebay and theres loads of next maternity trousers i normally get my clohes from dorothy perkins never had any from nxt so dont want to order them then they not fit so will order a bigger size if they come smaller etc xxx
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.
