I have been on the hunt for a good pair of distressed denim since I found out I was pregnant. I love this trend and I didn't want to have to sacrifice this great trend once I made the jump into maternity jeans. Maternity jeans can be...a little difficult. Some are uncomfortable, some slip down, and some are just plain unflattering. But I'm happy to report that I found the perfect pair! My favorite distressed denim maternity jeans are these AG jeans from A Pea In The Pod. I tried them on when I hosted the Rachel Zoe event last weekend and fell in love. I was talking to a rep from A Pea In The Pod at the event and she told me they buy normal designer jeans and just cut out the zipper/button to insert their amazing belly panel. It is a stretchy nude nylon that pulls up and over the tummy. I was a little hesitant about a band going all the way over my stomach. That make me claustrophobic just to think about, but this one is so thin, I honestly don't even notice it throughout the day. Plus, I think it's the secret to keeping those jeans in place. I have other maternity jeans that have a stretchy band that is only a few inches, but they slide down and I am constantly pulling them up all day.
Needless to say these babies will get some good use out of the next few months (let's be honest, they will still be making appearances after the baby is here too!) And don't forget to check out two more distressed denim styling options with Anna and Jessica!
