    Any recommendations as to where to buy black maternity trousers suitable for work? I got some from dorothy perkins and despite buying a size smaller than I usually would they don't stay up very well. Anyone found any good fitting ones? x

    I was just on their website. I have a few pairs of next maternity jeans from my last pregnancy but they never stayed up very well either. Think it must be my body shape! Do you get the ones with the large band that comes right over the bump or the narrow band?

    My work trousers are from dorothy perkins and i absolutely love them, so much so i want to wear them after babys born! The ones i've got have an adjustable waist so you can expand them as you grow. Although they're very stretchy so mine have pretty much been on the same size all along and they're v comfy. Maybe yours are a different dorothy perkins style? xxx

    i got mine from peacocks, band over the bump. (same with my jeans i prefer it over the bump) ive sewn a seam down the back of them in a v shape if u get what i mean, so as bump gets bigger i can let it out (i had to get a size bigger than i was because of my legs have got fat!

    I got over the bump ones from Next and find them really comfy. At min maybe band wee bit loose but not too bad. Like the shape of them also.

    I got mine from JoJo Maman Bebe, they were £29 but they are really comfy and smart too. I also bought some Lisa B Crave ones, but I don't think that they were worth the money as they are under the bump ones and not very comfy for sitting at a desk although they are nice material.

    Mine were £25 from
    Red Herring, they are over the bump ones, I'm just about to finish work and they are just getting too tight for me, so thrilled they lasted and are really really comfortable :)

    I have a couple of Next pairs which are over the bump big band ones, and a great pair from Asda which are adjustable and v v comfy (and v cheap!! I hate spending on work clothes, especially ones I'm not going to wear for long!!).

    I got black maternity trousers from next for work and they were really comfortable. They are now packed away waiting for next time. Think they were £25 so not too bad really. I didn't get them until 32weeks though lol I just wore a hairband through my button hole on my old ones :D

    I bought a pair from New Look fully elasticated waist wide leg looked perfect .......except my tree trunk thighs were too big for them so good job I inadvertently mistakenly bought maternity trousers a couple years ago in a new look sale so they saved the day when I went back to work Monday but I think the way forward for work especially is gonna be leggings for me but will need some longer tops to cover them a bit more
