Rated 3 out of 5 by Bonnie Tight in the knees
I have been rocking the toothpick jeans in classic rinse for the past 3 months and am now 6 months pregnant. The jeans have held up and still fit great. With that being said, I thought that these jeans would be identical only black. NOPE! While they may work for some ladies, they were not for me. I've gained my baby weight all in the belly, but for some reason these jeans were super tight in the knees. Needless to say they went back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KellyKellyKellyKellyKelly Cute but tight in the legs
This is my first pair of maternity jeans. I'm 16 weeks pregnant and have only gained about 3 lb., but my regular jeans have stopped fitting, so my weight must be shifting. I bought these in my regular size 27 (5'5", 124 lb now), and they fit, but are tight.
-- Fit like regular jeans and are super cute
-- Low in the front to stay off my growing belly, but not too low in the back, which is great.
-- So tight in the legs, especially at the knee and below, and that area does not appear to be stretching out.
-- So itchy! Maybe washing them will help, but I'm afraid to shrink them!
-- Black dye gets all over my hands when I wear them. Hopefully, a wash will help with this, too.
Overall, these are really good for the first and second trimesters, but if you tend to gain in the legs, I think you'd need to size up for later months. I don't think I'll be able to make these work for all 9 (10) months.

A few days away from delivering my baby girl I finally need to write this review. When I found out I was pregnant I was very excited but also cringed thinking I would have to wear those awful mommy pants with the big jersey waistband.
Thank you J. Crew for saving me from a fashion Armageddon. I bought the Toothpick in three colors - black, dark blue and white - and they have been the best purchase possible. I ordered the black and blue true to my usual 28' and listened to other reviewers, ordering the white ones a size up. These pants have been amazing to wear and took me from 24-39 weeks with ease. Highly recommended to everyone who agrees that becoming a mom doesn't mean you have to look like one.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Helen Great cut but unfortunately...
These were one of the only true skinny leg jeans that I could find on the market that were really skinny but flattering. However I couldn't actually wear them in the end as, although they seemed to fit perfectly everywhere else they would not stay up at the waist and every few metres I continuously pulled them up. This was at 5 months pregnant so at this stage I hoped they would fit perfectly.

I was already a fan of the toothpicks pre pregnancy and was thrilled they now offered in maternity. I ordered the classic rinse toothpicks first and as soon as I got them in the mail and tried them on I was at my computer ordering the black pair. They are so comfortable - I love the dip in the waist. I have tried some of the over-the-belly panel jeans and I just find them itchy and uncomfortable. I ordered my pre pregnancy size 26 and they fit perfectly. I started wearing them around 15 weeks and at close to 20 they still fit wonderfully. And I love the versatility - the skinny slightly cropped leg works well with flats or flip flops now but will work just as nicely tucked into boots when the cold hits.
