Since I’ve had a tie in to our first wedding anniversary, May 15th, most of this week, I was hoping to find a maternity or baby related product to review. Upon reflection I realized I hadn’t reviewed any of the pants I’ve been wearing and with having danced with Matt to Neil Diamond’s “Forever in Blue Jeans” as a tribute song to my late dad, this was a great time to review Indigo’s Maternity Blue Jeans. These are so many my only pair of jeans that are blue in maternity (my other two being a faded stonewashed white/very light blue and black accordingly). They are therefore, my go to pair.
These were the first pair of maternity jeans I bought, and right off the bat I liked the color. They are a deep blue best shown in the third through last photos on this post. Appearance in color is one of my most important features for jeans, I have in my closet regular jeans of which I wore before my pregnancy some pairs a lot more than others, and it’s all due to their color.
Another thing I like about the jeans is that in addition to looking just like regular jeans (at least from the waist band down) they are very low key on self promotion. While there is the standard label inside, there are no external markings of a brand name on the front or back.
As a teenager I would have been puzzled, maybe even put off a bit by this, but as a pregnant adult, I love the crisp and clean look they have as a result. The commitment to looking sleek has a trade off though, the front only has false pockets, something I am reminded of every time I want to put things in the front and can’t and as my stonewashed maternity jeans do have pockets, I know this is not a trend for all maternity jeans.
The jeans are a mixture of 80% cotton and 20% spandex. The bump covering is probably all or mostly spandex and does a great job in covering up and over my bump.
It’s flesh colored and as I am a Caucasian female, looks like it’s bare skin which is great for times when I move my arms overhead or twist in such a way that it’s visible.
The jeans do have some drawbacks. One is that at times parts of the denim rub at my legs and they feel a little weird. This may be where the jeans themselves have spandex out of necessity. Another is that the belly cover is already starting to fray. While I wear these often, sometimes 2-3 times a week, as I’ve only had them for a little over a month, this seems way too soon for them to be falling apart even in a minor way.
I do overall like these pants a lot. I will continue to wear them often in my pregnancy and as Company C allows us to wear whatever we like they will be getting a lot more use over the next five months.
