Finding a great fitting pair of jeans is a challenge for most women, regardless of size. Now imagine being plus size and pregnant… Looking for great plus size maternity denim might feel like looking for a needle in a haystack.

Most maternity companies only go up to a size 3X so plus pregnant moms have to get crafty when shopping. That means looking outside of the normal maternity stores and seeing what fits on all fronts. Finding loose-fitting clothing is key and that can be done via regular plus size clothing.

Here’s 7 brands worthy of checking out for plus size denim, some are maternity and some not:

#1: Catherines

Catherines offers up to a size 5X — 34W and their new denim collection for Fall just launched on their website. Most of their jeans offer an elastic waist and stretch throughout the leg. And they offer jeans in petite sizing, too!

Some of their denim styles have a comfort waist and look stylish when paired with a great top and shoes.
