The Lower Waist– Just as it describes the maternity pant sit hipster style and can be one of the best pants to buy at the early stage of your pregnancy. This style can also carry you through your whole pregnancy and beyond. One of the best pants you can buy.

Mid Waist The maternity style pant sits a little bit higher and should fall just underneath your belly button. This style pregnancy pant gives you more coverage and support around your stomach. Although you may find depending on how you carry this pant is not the best option for you.


High Waisted This style pant does sit high up on the waist. They come up and over your pregnancy belly and will cover it completely normally finishing at just a little underneath your bra line. Now fashion wise it does look a bit old-fashioned. I mean who wear high waisted pants like that BUT depending on how you carry these pants might suit you better and it might feel more comfortable as well as giving you some cover. These maternity pants are the best to wear at the later stage of your pregnancy.
