Wedding Guest Wear at 7 Months Pregnant

Hey Leggy Lovelies,

Hope you’re all wonderfully well.

Last weekend I was hitting the lemonades at my friends’ wedding in Scunthorpe, but not before much deliberation over what to wear. While I’ve not struggled anywhere near as much as I expected in finding long-length maternity wear for day-to-day, I’ve been somewhat underwhelmed by the party and occasion-wear on offer for leggy lovelies sporting a bump.

Maternity occasion-wear in general is akin to specialist tall wear; it tends to err on the safe side of fashion, presumably to appeal to everyone, and therefore likely appealing to almost no one. Most dresses contain cheap fabrics or oddly placed lace, and are usually wildly over-priced in comparison with their bumpless counterparts.

A lot of the ASOS maternity dresses look like they’d be total bum-flashers on me, but I did find this sparkly chiffon number there, and at £60, it was even less expensive than a lot of non-maternity options. I’m sure I’ll wear it to another party before Baby Schof arrives too.

I wore it to the wedding of my lovely friends Jen and Mark, who I introduced 6 and half years ago. (I spent most of the day feeling like a very smug cupid). My hubby Tim conducted the ceremony in the beautiful grounds of Jen’s parents’ home and made a very dashing vicar indeed.

I colour-blocked with some teal shoes (oldies from Dorothy Perkins), a teal bag (found in the sale last week at John Lewis, £25), and a hat-inator from KCMode. You can find the ASOS dress here.

Have you found any wedding guest outfits recently that would work for leggy lovelies (with or without a bump?). Please share your sources below! And if you do know of any maternity lines that make pretty ocassion-wear for tall mamas, please pop those in too :)

Non-Maternity Maternity-Wear

Hey Leggy Lovelies,

After a long time chatting about maternity wear, I thought it was about time I popped something on the blog that was appropriate for all of us gorgeous leggy lot.

In any case, when I first announced my pregnancy, so many of you told me not to bother with maternity clothes because they’re a big old waste of money. And, especially since I’m pregnant during the summer months and dress reasonably casually for work, you were absolutely bang onThere are plenty of clothes on the highstreet that will accommodate a growing bump, but still look perfectly lovely after baby’s arrival.

While I’ve bought two pairs of skinny maternity jeans (one under-bump pair by ASOS, one over-the-bump pair from Mamalicious @ASOS, the latter of which I prefer), and a couple of nice maternity dresses for special occasions, I’ve tried to stick with my old wardrobe, and buy things that I’ll be able to wear post-pregnancy too.

I also wear the items I do buy and that do still fit in much heavier rotation, so I don’t feel like I’ve spent lots of money on things that I’ll hardly get any use out of.

My best buy was an ASOS bump band for £7, an absolute money-saver because it has allowed me to wear most of my old jeans and shorts open and adds extra length to t-shirts that creep up over my bump. It’s not a completely seamless solution (literally), but it’s a great little piece for layering. I’ve worn it with my non-maternity Topshop shorts below.

My absolute godsend this summer has been the kimono… light enough to wear during these balmy summer days and fits at every stage of my pregnancy. Unlike a dress, I can also mix it up much more easily with other pieces in my wardrobe too. I find the long-line ones super flattering on a tall figure, and this Topshop number (£46) with its pretty, art-deco style bird print, is one of my faves and has been well worth the splurge.

If I have indulged a little bit, it’s been more on accessories like jewellery and handbags. Luckily I seem to have avoided the curse of going up a shoe size, although with 2 and a half months still to go until my due date, I realise there’s still plenty of time for that to happen. I have my husband’s Converse and Havianas on standby.

I’ve also arranged my wardrobe at home with a section of my tried-and-tested maternity-friendly outfits, to avoid hours rummaging through before work every day and tearing my hair out when nothing fits.

You can hover over the images above for links to products. The giraffe print clutch is no longer available, but if you want to splash the cash, I love this blue giraffe print clutch from Ted Baker. And neither are the boots, though Topshop does have a strappy pair with the same metal-capped heel in a size 42 here. Prescription sunglasses are by Tommy Hilfiger at Specsavers.

P.S. How many of you went up a shoe size or even grew taller during pregnancy? Let me know if this has or hasn’t affected you.

P.P.S. I’m looking for more pretty logo and typography tees to wear under shirts and kimonos. Have you found any pretty ones lately (doesn’t necessarily need to be a maternity piece)?.

Underwear. It’s a Tall Issue.

photo-17

Ahem. I think we’re good enough friends to have a chat about this now.

Bums

It’s not something I’ve really talked about on the blog before, but having opened up the discussion on the ATTT Facebook page previously, and through my own experiences of buying undies, I’ve come to the conclusion that there is definitely such a thing as a Tall Bum. It’s not just in underwear that this becomes apparent; jeans are often cut with far too short a rise, even when they are placed in “specialist” tall ranges. When it came to buying maternity jeans, my biggest problem wasn’t actually the length of the leg, but trying to finding a pair that didn’t expose my rear end every time I sat down.

I’ve bought nice lingerie sets in the past from Boux Avenue (above), Marks & Spencer, Bravissimo, and even managed to get cheap knickers with a higher rise in Primark too. But a lot of the time I find I’m left with an unsightly builder’s bum, and even knickers that did fit originally can end up shrinking in the wash and ultimately fail to cover my modesty.

Does anyone else have this same problem? Where do you buy your knickers from?

Boobs

I quite like my boobs. At the moment they’re still rather pert, so I’ll try and appreciate that for the next few months before everything heads south. But even so, most straps on dresses aren’t long enough. And if there is an under-bust line, it often cuts right through the middle of my boobs. I even see this happen in Tall ranges that make dresses a little bit longer, but pay absolutely no consideration to the resulting proportions that come with being tall.

I’ve not had too many issues with bras, though I’ve heard from some of you who have, and since my straps are usually extended to capacity, I imagine this probably does affect a lot of you, particularly the very tall.

How do you find straps on bras and dresses, and accommodating a “lower-down” bust (but not necessarily a saggy one?).

Bumps

Since becoming pregnant, I’ve had to do a lot of underwear shopping, not least because my boobs will.not.stop.growing. In addition, I’ve had to buy non-wired bras for a change, because according to one midwife I’ve spoken to and a number of online sources, underwired bras can damage breast tissue in pregnancy and affect your ability to breastfeed. Though there doesn’t seem to be any actual evidence to substantiate this claim, non-wired bras do feel a bit more comfy when you’re dealing with sore boobs and your bump starts to grow up towards your bust-line. So I’ve bought a few new maternity bras from Mothercare; some pretty lacey ones and a couple of t-shirt ones for work (you’ll be glad of the latter when your nipples start resembling bullets).

I’m not yet up-to-speed on bras I’ll be needing for breastfeeding, (which I’ll hopefully do for a few months but I won’t be beating myself up if I can’t) but my friend Jo — who recently became a mum to the beautiful Emilia — did advise me that when purchasing maternity vest-tops during my pregnancy, I should look to get ones with feeding-friendly removable straps as well.

I’d like to think that I’ll be one of those ballsy breastfeeding mums who’s happy to whip her nipples out on public transport, and while I fully support any woman who does, the honest reality is that I’ll probably want to do things a tiny bit more discreetly. Particularly when I notice random men in coffee shops gawping or conversations with friends suddenly getting a bit “awkward” as I go to feed.

This super longline cami top (£39) from maternity lingerie company Amoralia is great for a tall torso, and unlike most feeding vests, actually has a concealed panel underneath the top layer, with little cut-out holes that mean it’s only the area immediately around your nipple that is exposed. Great if you’re feeding while mid-conversation with your Dad’s mate and baby decides to throw her head about.

photo-16

A little bit pricier than your average vest, but I’ve washed it numerous times now and the lovely, thick, soft fabric keeps its shape perfectly, and feels so much more luxurious than a lot of the flimsy, synthetic fabrics on offer for expectant mums. Plus, I’m following Jo’s advice and buying my feeding tops early so they’ll see my through pregnancy as well.

It also goes very well with the pretty cupcake briefs (£18), which have a high enough rise to accommodate a tall bottom.

photo-15

So… a few questions to finish with. Pregnant or not pregnant, do you agree that it’s tricky to find underwear for a tall figure? Where do you buy your pants, bras, corsets and camis?

And for mums who chose to breastfeed, what did you wear for public feeding?

Does pregnancy make it EASIER for Tall women to buy dresses?

I was supposed to do sooo many posts this week. But for some (satanic?) reason my broadband has decided to become excruciatingly slow, and this (rather miniature) post has taken me THREE WHOLE DAYS. Rubbish internet + hottest week of the year + pregnancy hormones = seriously crazed leggy lovely. Excuse me while I go and sit in a bathtub of ice now that this is finally done.

Since becoming pregnant I’ve realised that I’m not a fan of tent-like clothes. I thought it would be my pre-pregnancy baggy shirts and dresses that I’d be glad of when I got a lot bigger, but I actually feel more confident in body-con styles. Six months ago, I would have had to be having a seriously “thin” day to even think about squeezing myself into anything containing a hint of elastene, but pregnancy, with its ‘I’m actually supposed to be this fat and I quite like it’ mentality, means that I’d rather be seen in fitted things.

I’ve also discovered that the whole waistline-being-too-high issue ordinarily encountered by tall women is pretty much non-existent with maternity styles, because so many have an under-bust line instead (and normally quite a generous area for growing pregnancy boobs). So I’ve surprisingly fallen in love with the empire-line shape too, and found that pregnancy has has made it- dare I say it– easier to buy dresses, and me more confident in the ones I have got.

I’ve been doing a lot of shopping on the ASOS  maternity website (it just seems to have the widest and most affordable selection of trendy bits) and searching out ‘midi’ and ‘maternity’ so that the lengths are a bit longer. While a lot of the midis in the regular section are waisted, and irritatingly so, the maternity ones obviously aren’t, so they’re pretty much all wearable for a leggy lovely.

I wore this hawaiian print number (£38) to my work summer party (and to a Backstreet Boys concert in Hyde Park — don’t judge me), last week, and it’s possibly even wedding-guest worthy.

Have any of you tall mummies or expectant tall mummies found that dress buying is a little bit easier during pregnancy? Or have you been hugely underwhelmed by the choice available? Let me know in the comments below.

Tried It On: Summer Basics

When finding on-trend clothing is tricky, it’s always handy to have a few basics in your wardrobe that you can accessorise. It’s even better when those basics are a bargain to start with. ATTT reader and blogger Leonie has found two sundresses on the Very website that NEED to be in your suitcase this summer.

Leonie writes; “I recently bought two dresses (as part of a 2 pack) from South (ordered form very.co.uk) and wanted to let you and others know about them! 

The deal is 2 100% cotton, lightweight dresses that reach a little bit higher than my knee (I’m 6ft 1) for only £25! They have pockets and are SUPER comfy  -  my summer staples!

There is an elasticated band just below the bust so maybe not suitable for well-endowed leggy ladies BUT it removes the worry of finding a dress that has a lower waistband! I wear mine with my LTS denim jacket and sandals most of the time so super fast to put an outfit together.”

Gorgeous holiday essentials, and perfect for jazzing up with a bit of statement jewellery. I reckon I might even be able to squeeze a bump under there too.

Enough Length for Swimming Lengths

I am really clumsy. I’ve often blamed it on being tall, but then I meet these wonderfully lithe, 6ft1 dancer types and think it might just be me. Today I have already sneezed while holding a bowl of cereal, prompting it to splash all over my sofa, broken the china light pull in the bathroom by flicking it wildly against the wall while doing my hair, and spilt tomato out of a sandwich onto my friend’s newborn baby. My iPhone (smashed the other week when dropped on a garage forecourt and still awaiting repair) tells me that it’s only 4pm and therefore I should expect more mishaps to come.

Pregnancy has forced my clumsiness into overdrive, and unfortunately, this means that I’ve had to give up running and gymming. And anything else that could see me face-planting on a very hard floor. This isn’t necessary for every pregnant woman. In fact all healthcare professionals will encourage you to keep up with your usual fitness regime. But a fall at 6 weeks whilst out on my usual jog has freaked me out enough to seek alternative forms of exercise.

So I’ve given up my gym membership and now spend three hours a week at my local council swimming baths, and go for (semi) regular power walks with the hubby.

When I started swimming regularly (at about 6 weeks), I hadn’t bought a swimming costume in 6 years. And soon, my old faithful black swimsuit, which wasn’t the best fit to start with, started gaping at the seams. I then wore bikinis for a couple of weeks, until I decided that they weren’t great for serious length swimming and were probably a tad inappropriate for aquafit classes.

So I decided I needed a new one.  But as you all know, long-length swimming costumes are an elusive and expensive treasure in themselves. Throw in a bump and suddenly becoming a couch potato seems like a far less stressful option.

The one-piece is super on-trend at the moment and there are so many gorgeous, boho, fluro and 80s inspired styles that are just perfect for shorties. But I couldn’t find anything that worked for me.

So to combat the problem, I got a Long Tall Sally tankini. The vest is longer in the body than most (and the pants have a super high, 50s style cut), so I should still be covered even when I’m full-term.

I actually got one of the last in stock (thank you to LTS’s Alice for tracking it down!), but there are others on the website, and LTS does have a sale on swimwear at the moment. This new arrival (left — £35) looks great if you’re after a sporty but girly number.

 

 

 

 

I’m interested to know though where you’ve bought your swimming costumes in the past, especially if you’ve bought one recently that works well on a tall frame. Pregnant or not pregnant, it’s a hard task for a tall woman, particularly if you want something trendy and don’t want to pay through the nose.

A few weeks ago I asked (actually on behalf of a reader) for your long-length swimsuit suggestions. Here are a few gems you came up with:

Expensive

Sharron and Di both recommend this twist front swimsuit (£59) from Boden. It’s on the pricier side, but comes with the usual high quality fabric you can expect with Boden, and Sharron writes, “I’ve bought it in the long-length and it’s a great fit. I’m 6’2 and it’s the first swimsuit I’ve ever owned.”

Middle Ground

 

Di sings the praises of M&S Longer Length. This blue striped swimsuit (£32.50) is available, and if you see this long-length ruched swimsuit in store anywhere, make sure you snap it up. My 5’9 sister has it and it’s gorgeous with lots of room to spare (but it’s only currently available online in a size 8).

Budget

For pregnant women or those in search of a long-line tankini at very reasonable prices, Rachael suggests this tankini top (£14) and matching briefs (£7.50) from Cotton Traders.

 

 

 

Also highly recommended by you for tallies are Lands End, Sea Folly at John Lewis, Laura Ashley, Freya, Simply BeTallgirls.co.uk and even Tesco.

Let me know what works for you. I know bikinis are generally a failsafe bet, and — unexpectedly — I actually feel more confident in a bikini at the moment than I ever have before. But there are always circumstances when only a one-piece will do.

23 Weeks Pregnant: Kaftans and Kimonos

Maybe I’ve been watching a bit too much of The Only Way Is Marbs, but since my bump’s been getting bigger I’ve become a bit Kimono/ Kaftan crazy.

I’m also fairly reluctant to buy too many “maternity” specific pieces, and a kimono is super flattering now but still wearable after Baby Schof arrives. This ASOS Tall premium kimono (£65) is a bit more pricey than your average highstreet cover-up, but the embroidery looks very designer-esque and will look just as fab with a bikini and cocktail (mocktail for me).

Try Primark, H+M and Misguided for more bargainous styles. Luckily length is more or less irrelevant, with everything from waist-length to floor-length (and everything in between) considered chic this season. I also took this Ben Di Lisi number (£36) for pool lounging in Santorini.

I have however found a decent pair of maternity jeans (£35 – thanks Ali for the recommendation) by Mamalicious (available at ASOS). I’m edging towards a preference for over-the-bump styles now, mainly because no maternity jeans seem to have a high enough denim rise (these included unfortunately, though they are the best I’ve tried), and the extra bit of stretchy jersey fabric saves my blushes. The 34 inch leg is actually quite generous for a 36-incher like me.

The khaki top (£32) is from Topshop (one of the few maternity tops I’ve bought, but it’s  in a fairly neutral, go-with-everything colour). The chunky, block-heel sandals (I’m refusing to part with heels during my pregnancy, though I do favour an on-trend block heel for safety!) are by New Look and go up to a generous UK size 9, but pssst… you can get them from ASOS for free delivery.

Size Matters at ASOS

Hey Leggy Lovelies,

Last week I attended a “Size ASOS” event at their HQ in London (not the ASOS building in Yorkshire that was badly damaged by fire last week — I hear that’s on the road to recovery now though). It wasn’t tall specific, though it was an opportunity to showcase ASOS’s Tall, Maternity and Curve collections to the press and chat about what’s in store for the slightly irregular sized amongst us (my word not theirs).

asos size 5

Not only are they expanding on the success of their current out-size collections with a host of new pieces, but they’re looking at ways to improve fit across the board, beginning with last week’s scanning event. In a joint venture with Manchester Metropolitan University’s “Department of Apparel”, ASOS are on a mission to really get to know their customers, and find out what’s going on underneath everyone’s clothes. 2400 men and women of all shapes and sizes were invited to stand (in their smalls) in an electronic body scanning unit which employed state-of-the-art light technology to take around 150 measurements. The level of detail was immense; measurements you wouldn’t really think about like “ankle girth”, plus ones that us Tall women are only too aware need attention and rarely receive it, like “crotch length front” (and back) and “ankle to floor inside” (and outside).

ASOS size 1

Unfortunately I wasn’t able to raise the average height findings for the nation by stepping in there myself, because pregnant women aren’t allowed to be exposed to the technology, but I got to watch the analysts in action and find out a bit more about how it will inform their clothes.

Interestingly, I’m told that when ASOS first launched their Tall range, it borrowed measurements from other retailers who were already making clothes for tall women, and through its own independent and thorough research it hopes to improve those measurements and tailor clothes to fit a more genuine representation of a tall body-shape. While this won’t replace the age-old method of “fit modelling”, where clothes are tested out on a real-life human bean, it will help to set the marker for what makes a tall woman “tall” and therefore draw up the parameters for measurements required within the Tall range.

And speaking of the Tall range, there is a whole lot of pretty landing there over the next couple of months, including a beautiful floor-length (below front — and actually floor-length) embellished black dress and tight-fit black biker jacket.

Tall PR Georgie explained that ASOS had noticed a real lack of nice going-out and occassion-wear for Tall women and that it hopes to address that over the coming months with some slightly more glamorous pieces.

Best of all, absolute top-end prices should be around £90, even for the uber-glam gowns, so hopefully we’ll have a bit more cash to play around with next time we’re at a friend’s wedding/ prom/ ball.

I’m also going to be showcasing some pretty ASOS maternity clothes on the blog (some of the forthcoming collection seen below) over the coming weeks, so keep your eyes peeled. I have weddings to dress for and a couple of fancy-pants parties and bump isn’t getting any smaller!

So I’m interested to know from you ladies… when it comes to fit, what is it that even the specialist Tall retailers are getting so wrong? Is it arm length, crotch-length, too many cropped tops? Let me know what really gets your goat…

Tried It On: Wedding Guest Midi Dress

Wedding season is in full swing, and 6’2 ATTT reader Sarah is here to help you out with your long-length wedding guest fashion dilemmas.

Sheer is a key trend for this season, and Sarah’s managed to nail the look with a dress that’s still demure and ladylike enough for a wedding. She found this amazing electric blue stripy number in Warehouse at a not-too-ridiculous-for-a-special-ocassion price of £50. Love the length and the fact that it nips in exactly where Sarah’s waist is supposed to be.

Extra bonus points for wearing chunky high heels (New Look, £19.99) and colour-blocking to perfection. Sarah, ordinarily a size 43, writes, “The shoes are wide-fit and an 8/42 was plenty big enough, but they do a 9/43 which was massive”.

I think those shoes would look just fabulous with skinny jeans for a girly night out too. New Look actually do this shoe style in 3 other colours up to a size 43, if you’re looking to co-ordinate/ colour-clash with your own outfit.

Let me know if you find any pretty wedding-worthy dresses or shoes that will fit a tall figure. You can email laura@allthetallthings.com or tweet @tallthings

21 Weeks Pregnant: The Search for Long-Length Maternity Jeans

Hey Leggy Lovelies,

Thank you so much for all your lovely comments on the blog, Facebook and Twitter following my pregnancy news. I’ve read them all and been so very touched by your kind words and helpful advice. I’m also still in the process of getting back to emails as well, so apologies if you haven’t had a reply just yet.

Fashion-wise, I feel somewhat fortunate that the majority of my pregnancy will be during the summer months (Baby Schof is due in October). I realise I may look back on this statement as rather naive when I’m sitting in a beer garden, drenched in sweat and eyeing up my friend’s glass of Rosé as the condensation trickles down the glass, but it does make dressing rather more easy and a damn sight less expensive. I doubt, for instance, that I’ll be buying too many coats and jackets, preferring instead to wear my current jackets open (perhaps with a light scarf). I’ve been living in elasticated maxi skirts (some nice ones available at New Look Tall and a surprisingly long jersey skirt at H+M) that sit under the bump, and I’ve been stretching any pre-maternity purchased lycra-infused dresses as far as they can bear.

But there is always a need for jeans, and while the weather has been mostly glorious of late, grey skies are looming. Herein lies the problem; most Tall ranges don’t have a maternity section, and those that do carry a very small number of bump-friendly pieces. Particularly for women like me who are fussy about the wash and cut of their denim. At 21 weeks, I’ve hit the point where I can’t wear my favourite jeans anymore. As most pregnant women seem to find, my bump is smaller in the morning and gets progressively larger as the day goes on. While I can still comfortably do up my stretchy Topshop Leigh Jeans when I wake up, I’ve unbuttoned them by lunchtime. And I have no hope of fastening my favourite ASOS Ridley jeans. So I’m on the hunt for a dream pair of maternity jeans or two, to last me until the end of my pregnancy. And given that last week I spent just shy of a thousand pounds on a buggy/ pram/ carseat travel system, a purse-friendly pair would be lovely.

The Bump Band

I’ve bought the ASOS Jersey Bump Band (£7) to wear over the top of my non-maternity jeans so that I can continue to wear them with the zipper down. It’s not ideal, but it saves a heck of a lot of money and means I don’t need to discard all my favourite pre-maternity purchases. It’ll also be useful later on, to layer under tops as they rise up over the bump. Depending on the stiffness of your jeans and shape of the hardware, you might be able to still see some lumps and bumps through the band, but I’ve only been wearing it to add a little extra coverage under longline tops so no one would notice. I’m also considering getting two (perhaps one in a different colour — they do them in nude and black) so that I can thicken them up or wear with other colour jeans.  They’re also useful when you’re not pregnant to add a bit of length under your tops.

I’ve worn them here with my ASOS Ridley jeans (you can hover over the pictures for links to products).

I’ve also worn a burnout Topshop t-shirt (neither Tall nor maternity), one of the many I bought to wear on holiday with my maxi skirts and elasticated H+M shorts.

ASOS Maternity Jeans

I do want a couple of pairs of maternity jeans though that will see me through to 40 weeks, and I think it’s worth buying sooner rather than later to get as much wear as possible out of them. I’m a 36″ inseam, but thought I’d give ASOS Ridley Maternity Jeans (£30) a go in  the Long (34″) length. They’re actually a very generous length (think Topshop Leigh jeans), and the waistband fits under your bump, which is a bit cooler for summer than the over-bump styles. I’ve bought them in my usual size 10.

However, they are majorly, majorly hipster, and while the length is great in the legs, these aren’t made with a tall bottom in mind (anyone else have one of those? I definitely do) so sitting down can be very revealing. I am actually meeting ASOS tomorrow, and plan to beg them to make a few Tall maternity pieces. I’ve worn them with a long-length Mamalicious T-Shirt (£25) (ideal if you’re pregnant or not, as the ruching at the side isn’t obvious, so I’ll continue wearing it as a baggy-style tee after pregnancy).

So while I will carry on wearing my hipster-rise ASOS jeans for now, the search continues for the perfect, comfort-fit maternity denim. I’ll definitely be pursuing a few of your ideas over the next few weeks…

Advice from Other Tall Mums about Maternity Jeans

H+M: Michelle recommends them for maternity jeggings in long lengths and Jane for their 34″ maternity jeans.

Noppies: 6ft 2 Louise founds maternity jeans by this Dutch brand. They deliver worldwide (and by Royal Mail within UK so you won’t get stung with huge postage).

Tall Maternity Store: Kimberley found her jeans in Mummy Long Legz (now Tall Maternity Store).

Mamas and Papas: Struggling to find a fashionable fit? Helen praises M+P skinny jeans as “the only ones skinny enough”. I love the look of their Boyfriend jeans.

Mamalicious: Ali says Jeans-wise, Mamalicious is our friend, with skinnies in a 34 inch, that are more like a 35-36 in some styles. I’ve just ordered the slim-leg jean so I’ll keep you posted on that. It’s available at ASOS so you can try different sizes and styles with free delivery.

Gap: Danish ATTT reader Katherine loved her Gap Maternity jeans when expecting.

Vero Moda: Another Katherine tip, Vero Moda makes long-length maternity wear in Denmark. But they’re not available in the UK. Hmph.

Topshop: Becca found Topshop’s 34 inch Maternity jeans long enough. Worth a try.

Thanks girlies. If you have any advice to add, please pop it below. And let me know if there are any other maternity fashion dilemmas you’d like me to investigate.
