Has anyone seen any overbump smartish linen trousers in navy and/or white ?
I got some white under bump ones from Next but I am so not an underbump girl, feels like I am either flashing my tummy or they are about to fall down ... or both. I then ordered the overbump ones from Jojo but they aren't proper overbump which I could probably have put up with except for the fact that they don't fit, it's like my bump is lower than where they expect it to be so they just don't work.
I have seen some in Mothercare but it say they are casual and tbh I'm not sure they are really me.
I'm gutted, we go on holiday in less than 2 weeks, I have loads of maternity tops and was just waiting to get some linen trousers and I was good to go for holiday and if we were to get any summer in the UK but now I'm stuck.

I got some in Mamas and Papas over here last year, may be worth looking?

I did see some on eBay a while ago. Worth a go?

Will have a look at M&P, although i think I have already looked. I'm loathe to order from ebay given my lack of success so far as then i won't be able to return them IYSWIM.

I think that I saw some in H&M, maybe worth a look?

M&P are underbump this year, can't see anything in H&M online and we don't have a store (not that I've been out of bed for a week now so unlikely to be able to make it to a shop anyway). Argh ... surely this isn't difficult.

I got some in Debenhams before (but 18months ago now!)...they were definitely overbump x

No linen trousers at all in Debenhams. It could be that I am a bit early for the summer stuff, given the weather, but i need them. I've just found some one a random internet search from a company called Mummy & Little Me so have ordered them. they had white and purple, which looked quite navy, and if not I reckon i can probably dye them. Fingers crossed they work especially because they were a bargain.

Try Jojomamenbebe. I got some from there last year (I ended up not wearing them in the end due to the rubbish summer). They were beige, but I've a feeling they may have done other colours.

Jojo was my original plan but I bought two pairs and they just don't fit. One size it too tight around my bum but then the bigger size they just fall down. They are also really long and flappy. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for these bargain ones if not then I might have to put up with the jojo too big ones but I begrudge that when they aren't exactly cheap.

Mine were far too long. I intended to get the altered, as I had to all my mat trousers due to being a short ***, but never got around to it. They'll go on the bay of e at some point as they still have the tags etc. Shame. They were nice trousers. Is there anyway you could get the bigger size adjusted? You never know, as your pregnancy progresses you may grow into them, but it's a shame for your hols.
