“ Brand: New Look / Type: Maternity Bottoms „
This is a review of the Maternity Navy Blue Love Joggers I recently bought from New Look. I have ten weeks to go before the baby arrives and my clothes are limited (the ones that fit) and starting to wear out after two pregnancies. After scouring ebay I decided to buy a couple of new items from New Look, having had their maternity clothes before and finding them a good price, quality and fit.
I bought these joggers as they will be good for before and after the pregnancy, providing comfort too. It was a bit of a gamble as I usually need a long leg in trousers but knew I could wear these low with a bump band if necessary so could make them fit. Luckily they were fine as a regular leg at New Look is 32 inches so this was good for me as I didn't want them long to go with a heel or anything. I went for blue although they come in black and pale grey too but blue suits me fine and I find it washes a bit better than black generally.
The joggers are described as off duty comfort clothes with a waistband that sits under your bump but doesn't dig in. The hip sports a printed logo that says Love 1964 (random date I think!) and they are made from 65% polyester and 35% cotton. The joggers are available in sizes 8 - 18 and in theory, you just buy the size that you were pre pregnancy.
These are really comfy trousers which I can see will get a lot of wear over the next ten weeks and then you'll find me wearing them afterwards too when the new baby is here! Whilst they are not smart, they look OK with trainers and a tshirt and will do especially round the house or if nipping to the shops. I have black trousers and smarter jeans for when the occasion requires but for me right now the biggest priority is for comfort.
I thought these were well priced at £12.99. I still have a NUS card from when I did my Masters degree so can also get 10% off which can be done online or in store. I found the items I wanted online and went in store to buy them as I prefer to check the quality this way.
I am pleased with the joggers and will find a new home for them when I am finished with them as I have several friends currently trying for a baby. Whilst I do make an effort when required it is nice to be comfy and waistbands can be the worst thing about clothing when pregnant!
