One of the things I find useful on the Debenham's website is that they give you information about the model in the picture so that you can decide whether the item will work for you. With this in mind I expected these trousers to be long enough as I am 5'8" and the model was 5'9" and they went down to the floor on her. Sadly this is not the case and I am yet again in possession of a pair of trousers that look ridiculous if I wear them outside of the house. Why is it still so impossible to find maternity trousers long enough for anyone above 5'5"?
The material that they are made of is really nice and feels good quality and the bump band is really secure and keeps the trousers in place, but if you are at all long legged (anything over 31") then I wouldn't bother with these.
It's a shame because aside from that I think they are really nice.
Waist far too small!!
I've bought all my maternity clothes in my normal size with no problem but these were extremely small on the waist/bump band. It's a shame as they were nice trousers.
brilliant trousers great lenght
I am 5'10 and a size 16 and have found it really really hard to get a good lenght maternity trouser! Most are skimming my ankles and very unflattering, these are fabulous, so good in fact that ive ordered another black pair and a pair in navy! I wear them mostly for work and relaxing around the house but the material is lovely and would be grand for a trip to the shops or a casual lunch also
Nice item but not for me
Great quality but just not a fit to flatter my figure, I will be returning these. If you have long slim legs these will look fantastic, material is more trouser like and not a loose fitting yoga style like I had imagined.
Fantastic - can't recommend highly enough!!
These maternity bottoms are made from very good quality material and are a highly flattering shape. I got them at approx 25 wks and they have been perfect and so comfy from then right through the latter stages of pregnancy. I'm 36 weeks now and still wearing them v regularly - I wish they were done in an alternative colour as I would have bought another pair. They will come in very handy for comfort in the few weeks after the birth too.
Must-have maternity wear!
I really love these and can't recommend them enough. I've got three pairs of them because they are loose fitting, extremely comfortable and fit very well over my expansive bump and still look smart enough to wear as black trousers as they are not very sport or leisure like in appearance. As the weather becomes warm as well they are still suitable as the material is breathable. They also wash very well and have maintained their colour and shape. 5 stars all round!
my daughter loves these. They are so comfy and have plenty of room for the last 3 months when she will grow most. she wishes we had found them sooner, but this is the problem when brands ONLY put mat wear online and NOT in stores!!! Great quality, they even look ok for work. slightly pricey, but at least my daughter has found trousers that she loves.
I've had to re-order a bigger size as the part that is supposed to cover my bump was minuscule and would not stretch over my 34 week pregnant belly. They are also really long, so if the bigger size do fit (unlikely as the hip part fit ok) then I will have to turn them up, which is no mean feat with pregnancy related carpel tunnel syndrome in both hands. It's a pity alternative leg lengths aren't available. They are also not particularly good value for joggers and only one colour option.
I'd prefer to buy in store, where I can try clothes on and not waste so much time and effort ordering, collecting, returning and reordering, but you don't offer this option for maternity wear.
I'd shop elsewhere but maternity wear is hard to come by everywhere, so I suppose you can be reassured that other stores are just as awful when it comes to clothes for pregnant women.
