We hope this maternity jeans style guide helps you to make an informed decision on which pregnancy denim to buy for your style/shape.
Some important tips from us when choosing jeans:
1 Stay with your regular AUS pre-pregnancy size unless indicated on the product description
(as a general guide - for Mavi, Seraphine + Maternal America they are a slightly generous fit so order a size down, James Jeans, JBrand and Esprit run true to size)
(as a rough guide my size is generally size SMALL 10 Australian - I fit Maternal America XS, Mavi 26, James Jean 27, JBrand 27, Esprit S, Seraphine XS)
2 If you choose the larger size you may find them too big in the bottom and thighs, and will be hitching them up all the time, as most maternity jeans sit underbelly
3 The jeans may feel a little snug at first but remember that the denim will give with each wear and wash
4 An important care factor - to retain the longevity of any maternity jeans with stretch panels please remember to pull them up by the denim only, not the fabric panel or band which is delicate
5 Compare belly buttons! All our jeans are photographed on real pregnant women. If you compare belly buttons then you can see where they will sit on your body and how low they sit at the back. If you are not used to low waisted hipster styles then choose the jeans with the all round belly bands.
Here at Queen Bee we have built up a strong reputation over 8 years for stocking the best selection of maternity jeans in Australia! If you ever need any assistance we are just a phone call away on 1300 PREGGY (773 449) or please send us a message and we'll be happy to help!

These jeans have an elastic waistband at the top of the jeans. The waistband sits underbelly as you get bigger.
It is usually not noticeable under tops.
These jeans have side stretch panels that expand with your tummy - from the back they look just like your regular jeans.
Great for ladies who can't take a lot of pressure on their belly
These jeans have an over belly soft fabric waistband. Ideal for those who are not used to wearing low-cut hipster jeans.
STRETCH SIDE PANELS
OVER BELLY WAISTBAND
- these styles provide firm underbelly support
TIP: if you don't like any pressure on your belly then choose jeans with side stretch panels
- some jeans have the elastic panel all around and this ensures a supportive fit at the rear and not needing to hitch the jeans up every time you get up and down (like some lowrise hipster styles)
- these styles are the closest thing to your regular maternity jeans as the side panels are quite discreet and blend in with the design
- these styles tend to sit much lower on the hips and rear
- the side panels stretch comfortably and make the jeans easy to take on and off
- these styles are preferred by those wanting a bit more belly support and like something snug over the belly
- ideal for those who prefer jeans to sit higher at the rear
- great to wear post pregnancy to hold your tummy in

Amazingly comfortable jeans and I love the dark wash. The band is comfortable on my belly at 6 months and they don't fall down - Tricia
Esprit Dark Wash Skinny Jeans
I can't sing the prasies of these jeans enough. I bought a pair during my first pregnancy and they have been my staple pair of jeans ever since. Post birth, I simple wore a belt or sash to disguise the elastic waist. I'm now 34 weeks into my second pregnancy and they are still going strong! They have retained their colour and shape beautifully. Definitely a long term investment piece. Jo
Maternal America Skinny Jeans
I absolutely love Maternal America jeans. I bought one pair while pregnant. My baby was born three months ago but I'm still wearing the jeans as the elastic waist band is so comfortable. Have always found 'normal' jeans tight around the waist so these jeans are a wonderful alternative. Have bought two more pairs since having the baby! Andrea
Maternal America Straight Leg Jeans
Very comfortable, I don't like anything tight on my stomach even when I was not pregnant and these Jeans a really stretchy in the front. They are so stylish, feels like a normal trendy pair of jeans but comfy in the belly. I am normally a size 10-11 in Jeans. I have previously bought a size 10 Mavi Jean which fit snug (pre-pregnancy). I bought the size 10 here and it fits perfectly. I have even put on a few extra kilos since being pregnant and the 10 still fits great. Excellent service, delivered the next day. Very happy. April
Mavi Jessica Rinse Rome Jeans
Pre pregnancy I lived in my Mavi jeans, and I was a little anxious about what I was going to end up having to wear once I could no longer squeeze into them. I was sooooo excited to find this website and maternity Mavi jeans!!!
Thanks Mavi for not neglecting those of us who still want to look good and thanks Queenbee for the fantastic range and service X mel
