Attention all long-legged preggers…

February 12, 2009

picture1You know who you are! You’re regularly asked how tall you are. You’ve been peppered a million times with questions about which high school sports you played (volleyball or basketball are the likely answers). You can rarely, if ever, buy pants off the rack. You know every single retail chain that carries a “tall” or “long” line of clothes, and you thank God for them every day.

But now you’re preggers, and you have the doubly difficult task of finding pants that are long enough and that will fit a pregnant body. I won’t sugar coat it—it’s going to be tough. If you’re like me, you’ll invest in a Bella Band to extend the life of your pre-pregnancy pants as long as possible. But that will only go so far.

Here’s a round-up of retailers that carry pants for us Amazons. If you know of some I’ve missed, please, please leave the name of the outlet in the comments so we can all reap the benefits of one more option when it comes to maternity leg-wear! Check out its maternity section. I keep reading on other sites that carries tall maternity pants with a 36” inseam, but I have yet to see them on the site. They do offer several 34” inseam options though. JCPenney’s online maternity options are easy on the wallet and include lengths that run into the 34-34.5” inseam range. The maternity section of the site carries James Jeans 34” inseam, Paige Premium Jeans 34.5” inseam, Rock & Republic Jeans 35.5” inseam, Citizens of Humanity Jeans 34.5” inseam and Maternal America pants with a 34” inseam. While I don’t have personal experience with this site, I’ve seen it mentioned on blogs and Web sites as another option for us long-legged ladies.

I’ve also been thinking about buying one or two jogging suits/yoga pant sets for after the baby is born to bum around in the first few weeks. I know I’ll want only comfortable clothes to touch my body. I recently noticed that Eddie Bauer has a ton of clothing options for us tallies, including some loungewear that may just fit the bill for those first few weeks post-delivery. They run a bit on the pricey side, but heck our battle-weary crotches deserve it!
