  • Loose fitting, suitable for growing into, pull-on so no fiddling with buttons


  • Style won't suit all people, waistband can dig in during third trimester, only one leg length, can't tumble dry

Being pregnant means that lounging around and taking it easy is mandatory, and JoJo Maman Bebe's Boyfriend Cut jeans are ideal for just that purpose.


The Boyfriend Cut jeans are baggy enough to be able to grow into as your bump expands, and as you put more weight on around your legs and bum. They’re currently available in one colour - indigo. Sizes range from 8 to 18.

What we love

Comfort is everything when you're pregnant especially as you creep towards the final weeks of your third trimester, when you’re permanently uncomfortable! Towards week 33 of my pregnancy, I found that the maternity wear I had bought towards the end of my first trimester stopped fitting as my legs and bum started to retain more water and my bump got bigger at a faster rate. Slimline bootcut or flared jeans were no longer an option. Fortunately, JoJo Maman Bebe's Boyfriend Cut jeans came to the rescue. Their bagginess meant that they were the ideal cut for me at that stage.

Maternity jeans with an over the bump band aren't to everyone's liking. However, the Boyfriend Cut jeans come in a below the bump cut. JoJo Maman has disguised the soft inset jersey band with a classic jersey waistband so that they still look like a 'normal' pair of jeans.

What to watch out for

As with non-maternity jeans, certain styles suit certain body shapes. The same goes for maternity jeans, too. JoJo Maman Bebe's Boyfriend Cut jeans will not flatter all figures and might make certain women feel a little dumpy. However, as you get midway through your third trimester, this will truly be the last thing on your mind!

At the moment, these jeans unfortunately only come in one leg length - 30" – so they might not be suitable for petite or tall women.

Another criticism would be that the Boyfriend Cut jeans can't be tumble dried. This is fine in summer when you can hang your washing out on the line, but becomes a little more problematic during winter months.

Who are JoJo Maman Bebe Boyfriend Cut jeans best for?

Heavily pregnant women after a comfy, casual style.


MadeForMums verdict

JoJo Maman Bebe Boyfriend Cut jeans are a great choice for your third trimester or fans of loose baggy jeans in general. They are comfy and give a relaxed look, so are ideal for weekends, lounging about, and for those who find their bum and thighs are growing along with their bump. Unfortunately, just one leg length is available.
