    I am having a nightmare finding comfy and flattering jeans! I am a pre-pregnancy size 18 with a big waist and not very big hips.

    I bought a pair of full-basque mothercare ones at the weekend which are great when standing up but cut in to my belly when sitting down!

    Has anyone found any really comfy jeans available in a 18 or 20?
    Getting fed up with being uncomfortable!
    :wacko:

    Check out next on line, I got a pair from there size 20 & they are too big so I suggest buying 1 size smaller.....it also doen't hurt the ego or the purse :)

    Have you looked at Peacocks? they do larger sized maternity clothes and are really cheap too, i went from a size 10 to 18 whilst i was pregnant and was buying new clothes every month nearly so couldn't afford to pay 20 -30 for a pair at a time! Good Luck!

    I got mine from New Look and I loved them so much I brought another three pairs! They are only £16 each and come in under and over the bump styles.

    I got mine from red herring in debenhams they are under the bump and should fit the whole way through as they are adjustable..... Im in them already cos I was finding that my normal jeans where hurting when I sat down for a long time...

    ive ended up buying 3 pairs from peacocks, all size 18 (i think... could be a 20 though!) they are very comfy and i think they were only £20 each, (but clothes are more expensive here due to shipping charges etc! oh the joys of living abroad!)
