Rated 5 out of 5 by Annehyphenmarie All Maternity Jeans Are Not Created Equal
I'm 19 weeks along and have been in denial over the past couple weeks about needing maternity clothes. I've done the hair-tie trick since Christmas, and lately, that just isn't holding up. I bought some belly bands, which are fine, but I finally caved and ordered these J.Crew stretch maternity matchstick jeans. This is my love song to them.
They fit wonderfully. They don't include a huge piece of fabric to cover the belly. The bands on the sides have plenty of give to stick with me later in pregnancy. The back pockets are real. They are flattering. They make me feel like a human being. So long, leggings and a tunic. See ya later, hair ties. Don't need you anymore. I've got real jeans that look mighty fine on.
Thank you, J.Crew. I could kiss you.

Rated 2 out of 5 by RD10 Inconsistent with Matchstick jean bought in store
I purchased my first pair of Matchstick jeans (original wash) in-store back in the fall. Loved everything about that jean, so much so that I recently ordered two pairs of the Matchstick jean in black online (one regular pair, and one maternity, as I am now a bit more than halfway through my pregnancy). Was very excited when my order came in and I tried them on, only to find out that they both had a different fabric make-up than the previous Matchstick jean I owned, and these pairs were made in China (vs Mexico like the original pair). Not sure if the location of the manufacturing is as important as the fabric content. They just don't look quite the same on, or feel the same...

Rated 3 out of 5 by megp Ok, runs large
I normally prefer to wear the matchstick fit pre-pregnancy, but the maternity style runs large/seems to have a wider leg opening, or at least gives the appearance of it. I much prefer the toothpick style in the maternity line.

These are great. They don't feel like maternity jeans. I would like to buy them in different colors. I'm 20 weeks now so hopefully they will continue to fit well

Rated 5 out of 5 by megan Great Maternity Pants
These pants are so, so comfortable. I love that they don't have the huge belly band, but rather the two panels that expand with my belly. I would definitely order a size down from what you wear in regular matchstick pants. They stretch some and are my new favorite pants. Seriously, want to wear them everyday!
