“ Brand: Next / Type: Maternity Jeans „
This is a review of the Black Boot Cut Narrow Bump Band Jeans I bought from the maternity range at Next. I find the style with a big bump elastic panel uncomfortable to wear as I don't have a big bump but my normal jeans don't fit. I didn't want to buy a lot of maternity clothes as you don't wear them for a long time but being comfortable is essential when you're lugging a baby around inside you!
The jeans are black and fairly slim cut on the leg with the top three inches on the waist band ending in a thick elastic which is flexible and comfortable. I have had these from around 12 weeks and now in my last five weeks of pregnancy they are starting to dig in a bit and feel uncomfortable. The best bit for me is that you can buy these in a long leg too which I need as the regular length is too short for me.
The jeans are £28 which is about average for Next prices and I really wouldn't want to pay any more than this for a pair of jeans I will only wear for a few months. It is unusual to find these much cheaper as the maternity range of jeans and staple items does sell itself so they don't need to clear the stock very often I've found. I have picked up a few maternity bargains from the local Next outlet but they only have a few pieces in at a time these days and they never seem to be in the size I want.
These jeans have washed and worn really well and stayed a true black. I have tugged on the waist band a lot and it has held solid! It is handy being able to buy these in a long leg, a rare find in a maternity trouser. I have found all the Next maternity clothing to be of decent quality and it really holds its value even when sold second hand.
I would recommend these jeans for the early to mid stages of pregnancy as being the most comfortable with the flexibility of the waist band but those with a beach ball bump may struggle later on in pregnancy as these sit under the bump. I have a similar pair in indigo blue from next that I have also worn to death but it is handy to have them in black for a smarter look and evenings out. For the price paid I am happy with these jeans and will pass them on to a friend probably once the pregnancy and after pregnancy stomach has snapped back into my normal size!
