Finding jeans that fit right off the shelf is tough enough when you're 5'3" on a good day, but add a baby bump into the equation, and you're looking at a serious feat. Fortunately, the internet does offer some options when it comes to petite maternity jeans, from styles that are tailor-made for shorter frames to cropped pairs that you don't need to be as tall as a model to pull off.
With so many labels getting into the maternity category, you don't have to kick your designer-denim habit during pregnancy if you don't want to—Current/Elliott has a killer collab with Hatch, Paige has plenty of styles with shorter inseams, and Citizens of Humanity makes trend-forward jeans with both over-the-bump and side-panel waistbands. If you're on a budget (and with a baby on the way, who isn't?), affordable retailers like ASOS, Gap, and Topshop carry cute, comfy pairs as low as $35—which leaves you some extra change to pick up a new pair of sneakers because, let's face it, you're probably going to want to ditch those heels.
