Rated 5 out of 5 by bisoubisou You don't have to be pregnant to wear these
Disclaimer: I am not pregnant, but I own two pairs of these. I'm a writer, a graduate student and a teacher's assistant. I spend long periods in class and meetings sitting in lectures, screenings, writing and doing research. I used to wear athletic leggings to class all the time, but now that I'm teaching skinny jeans and leggings are out. I want to look polished, chic and presentable but the waistband so many J Crew dress pants and jeans digs into my hips and waist after long periods of sitting. Solution? Maternity minnie in Tall (Tall = full length on me, a 5' 6" person). If you size down one or two sizes, they fit just as slim as the regular Minnie, except they are stretchy and comfortable in the waistband and since there's no hook and eye or zipper to fuss with, they are easy to slip on and off to use the restroom. They are my secret weapon-- as comfy as leggings but as chic as cigarette pants. I am stocking up.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Danielle Stylish Pants, But Far From Perfect
These pants make me look and feel almost like my pre-pregancy self. I bought them in "Tall" so they'd cover my ankles. The style is professional, contemporary, and flattering. I would buy these in every color and wear them every day, but - what - the - heck were they thinking when they chose this fabric? My black pants attract lint and dust like crazy. They must be dry cleaned after every single wear, steamed before I put them on in the morning, and lint-rolled three or four times a day when worn. I still own two pairs because they are beautiful, they make me feel good, and nobody else seems to make attractive maternity pants like this. Please, J Crew, please offer this flattering cut in a higher quality fabric.

Rated 5 out of 5 by 3rdTime They don't slide down
The Minnie is the best maternity pant.They are the only pants that don't slide down. All my other pants I have to pull up every 5 seconds. They are light and comfortable. I wish they came in khaki or army green!

Rated 5 out of 5 by rosegirle Same great pants!
These pants are great! I wear a 0 Tall normally, and I am wearing currently a 0 Tall Maternity, and they fit well. I thought I might want a tad bit more room at the end of the pregnancy and need to have something (more appropriate than leggings) to wear to work, so I ordered these in a size 2 Tall. I like that the Tall gives just a little more length, as my Minnies tend to shrink (and I get them dry cleaned). Because there is elastic in the waist, I can see that they wouldn't last as long as the regular pants, but I have really only needed these for a few months. They're comfortable and classy. Thanks JCrew! Now can you please make suiting options for pregnant career women?!

This is a beautiful pant that feels like a legging but looks polished enough for important meetings paired with a blazer and button down. I'm normally a size 2 or 4T with J Crew things and bought the 4T maternity size which gives me a bit of growing room. For reference I'm 5'10" and 140 pounds.
Gosh it is nice to let my second trimester belly breathe without a panel or waistband digging in. Unlike other maternity slacks these don't stretch out by the end of the day and don't fall off my butt. Wish the black ones were still available.
