Seeing how we much we love J Brand jeans, we just had to check out their maternity jeans.  A Pea in a Pod has these listed as J Brand’s Twill Zipper Pocket Slim Leg in Black with the Secret Fit Belly(tm).  These jeans are actually J Brand’s Agnes Jeans in Worn Onyx.  The Agnes jeans were showcased in our Fall Trends article under the zipper trend.

What do I love about these jeans?  I love that these are originally regular J Brand jeans that has been slightly altered with a belly panel to accommodate a growing belly.  It makes me feel less like I am wearing maternity.  And let’s not forget that I am a big fan of J Brand already.   I love the color which is not a true black but a slightly washed black.   As with J Brand’s Houlihans and J Brand Scout jeans, these are the 7.5 ounce luxe Japanese twill.  It’s a very durable.   True to the Agnes style, they have 4.5”faux zipper front pockets and 11”zippers on the legs.  I like the rear flap pockets with hidden button enclosures on these jeans because it is during this time that I need flap pockets more than ever!  My favorite part about these jeans is the Secret Fit Belly(tm).  This is my first full belly panel and I find the fit very comfortable for my growing belly.  It is a very soft and stretchy material.   It feels like thick pantyhose.  Since it is a full belly panel, it helps to create a smoother look when I wear lighter material tops.

Is there anything I don’t like about the jeans?  The one thing that I noticed about these jeans is that because the twill is a thicker material, it felt like after sitting and getting up I had to sometimes pull the pants up.  I dread this about maternity pants.  I think if it was a thinner material that offered more movement it would be less of an issue with regard to this.  But honestly, I can overlook this because I love the style so much.

Overall, I love these pants.  I love how it looks and the secret fit belly is incredibly soft and comfortable.  You really can’t go wrong with J Brand.  I love what they have done for maternity.

These can be purchased at A Pea in a Pod!
