    True to size, smart and comfortable. Very happy with these trousers. Thank you.
  • review score 5 Gemma Stafford on 04 March 2016
    I really love these cords. They are extremely comfy to wear and look great.
  • review score 3 Rebecca on 03 March 2016
    I'm a 14/16 and bought large. I'm now 33 weeks but they are baggy on me and very long (I'm 5'5'') - not flattering on me.
  • review score 5 Jane on 01 February 2016
    These trousers are great I went for a size 8 which was pre bump size and they are perfect. Lovely colour and so comfortable.
  • review score 4 Wendy on 01 February 2016
    Very comfortable. Ordered size 8 in the sale (normally a pre-pregnancy size 10) due to ither reviews and they fit perfectly. Straight, not skinny leg so no tapering in at the bottom but very comfortable for casual wear. Feel robust but I haven't washed them yet!
  • review score 5 Sonia on 30 January 2016
    Really nice pair of trousers, quite comfy and warm for these days of Winter. I am size extra small and I am finding it hard to find pregnancy clothes, but these Jojo size 6 where perfect for me.
  • review score 5 Jessica on 19 January 2016
    The cords are great. Straight leg is perfect. I'm size 10 but ordered the 8 as per other reviewers' recommendations, and they fit perfectly, will even allow for weight gain to be accomodated in comfort. Lovely dark blue and almost velvety. Very pleased.
  • review score 5 Karen on 18 January 2016
    At only 14 weeks, these are a too big at the moment, particularly around the waistband where the cords start, but looking forward to wearing them once the bump is bigger!
  • review score 4 Charl on 24 November 2015
    Love these cords. I tried on the 14 and 16 but went for the 16 in the end. Lovely fit and very flattering. Had to get them hemmed an inch but that's nothing new for me! I bought them in the charcoal colour as navy had sold out - pleased with the colour and I know these will last me the next 4 months too. Will keep me warm over the winter months.
  • review score 5 Charl on 12 November 2015
    Lovely! Bought in charcoal. Great fit - I'm 5 months, tiny bit long for me, but wonder web will deal with that! Stylish and will see me through the winter! Just wish you had the navy in my size too!
  • review score 5 Michelle Williams on 30 October 2015
    Really comfortable and practical trousers for work. Would recommend but I did order one size larger to allow for bump growth.
  • review score 5 Katie on 08 October 2015
    Lovely quality and good leg length (i usually get 31"). Will be buying more maternity clothes from jojomamanbebe.co.uk :-)
  • review score 5 Helen B on 05 October 2015
    Having really struggled to find maternity trousers that fit, I am delighted with these easy wear cords. I read the previous reviews before ordering as I would have ideally liked to try them on in store before purchase. They are a good fit - I went for size 14 and am pre-pregnancy size 12-14 with short legs and big thighs! They are approx. 1 inch too long but with boots are fine and easy to turn up. I bought two pairs and will live in these through the winter. Would recommend.
  • review score 5 Louise ralph on 22 September 2015
    Lovely comfortable trousers. Good fit and soft stretchy fabric. Good quality. Would definitely buy again.
  • review score 5 Steff on 11 September 2015
    Really soft and comfy! I'm normallya size 8 but ordered a size 6 as many other reviews suggested to order a size smaller and they fit perfectly.
  • review score 4 Lydia Verity on 08 September 2015
    I really like these trousers. I only wish they were still available in the grey colour as the navy is very dark.
    I ordered a 10, which is my usual size, but they did come up quite big. They were fine on the legs and bum as I don't like trousers very tight, but the waist band was too large. I considered returning them for an 8, but when I remembered how big I got towards the end of my first pregnancy I decided that I'd probably need the extra room (I'm only 15 weeks at present, though I do have a bump as its pregnancy number 2). I therefore added some button hole elastic to each side of the waist band to enable me to tighten them now and loosen as I get bigger. This is a feature many maternity brands include as standard and I do think it's a shame that Jojo don't add these as they're such good quality clothes otherwise.
    I'm 5ft 4.5in and they were a touch too log, so I turned them up one turn, but they could easily have done a little longer -I'm just picky.
    Overall very pleased with the purchase.
  • review score 5 Louise B on 15 August 2015
    I bought size 14 and am normally petite. I thought these pants were really comfortable and didn't hug my tummy at all.

    It felt like it was my ample bum that was keeping them up though as I didn't fill the bump band which I think is where they'd otherwise hang from.

    The leg length was obviously a bit long, but I managed fine in 1 inch heels.

    Great alternative to leggings and skinny jeans!
  • review score 5 Sara Diggle on 15 July 2015
    I love these cords! I'm 18 weeks and had just been defeated by my usual jeans. I prefer cords to jeans anyway as they look a bit smarter. The blue is the perfect shade. I'm usually a 10-12 for skirts and trousers; the 10 fits perfectly. Leg width is fab in my view, straight but not too skinny. A little long for me (5'4), but easy to tack up. Only downside is no grey version left in a 10...!
  • review score 5 Emma on 13 May 2015
    Love these trousers, they are very comfortable and fit well, not too tight around the hips/bum which can expand during pregnancy. They are quite casual looking due to the loose cut but that suits me perfectly. Also can be machine washed and tumble dried which is very practical (ideal if you already have a little one making mess!)
  • review score 4 Khastie on 05 May 2015
    Very comfy trousers but sizing comes up a little big. I am usually a size 12 pre-pregnancy and bought this size but think a 10 may have been better. However despite being quite roomy they are comfortable and as I have bought them for work, which involved lots of bending, kneeling etc I have kept the size 12.
  • review score 5 Kate on 08 April 2015
    I'm wearing these cords now and they are very comfy indeed. I love that they have real pockets (big enough to hold phone, keys and tissues). They stay up pretty well - the stretchy bump band is tight enough - and the cut is comfy enough for me to crawl around on the floor playing with my toddler. I am usually a size 12 but seem to be needing size 14 during this pregnancy (in various different brands of maternity clothes) so I went for the 14 and they fit me well. Quick delivery too. If there was a range of colours available I'd order another pair!
  • review score 4 Karen on 07 November 2014
    The are comfortable but the sizing was completely wrong they were at least 1 size bigger. I needed to go to the shop to try the right size and exchange it
  • review score 3 Claire on 19 October 2014
    Lovely cords but the over the bump band was in the middle of the bump and I was am 19 weeks. Had to cut the band off and buy an elastic belt.
  • review score 1 Tracey on 16 October 2014
    I am quite tall and found these trousers too short for me so sent them back.
  • review score 2 Samantha Jevons on 30 August 2014
    Very loose and baggy on my petite frame. Sadly not the right style for me
  • review score 4 SH on 23 July 2014
    I am 5ft and was 110 pounds pre preg - 135 at 20 weeks mostly on my tummy. These were too long for me (but given my height I expected this). These were v comfortable when I first got them but now that the weather is so hot and I am even fatter they can be tightish on the tum at times (eg long car journeys). Overall glad I bought them and good alternative to jeans as more give in them and can just about get away with them at work! Note I do find the legs quite baggy so not the smartest but I'm all about comfort at the moment!
  • review score 3 I Davies on 13 June 2014
    Excellent quality cord fabric, gorgeous colour, but the bump fabric was too loose on the trouser size that fit me. Also, trousers were too long. Would be good if the style was offered in a range of trouser lengths e.g. short/standard/long
  • review score 0 Helen on 12 February 2014
    Really nice, well cut on the legs, and comfortable round the middle - but as with most over-bump trousers, they do slip down and you need to do a bit of hitching. I still really like them, though.
  • review score 0 Eileen Rose on 07 February 2014
    Have to return as too big. Ordered small, I'm 5'3 and 118llbs (20 weeks pregnant, was 112 llbs prior to pregnancy).Gorgeous colour and nice cut on the legs but the waist is just colossal. Stood really far out from from my back so created a really untidy look when underneath a top or jumper (unless baggy). Shame, nice material and lovely colour. Disappointed.
  • review score 0 Zoe Browning on 20 January 2014
    Love these trousers, have them in both navy and charcoal. They do come up big so have had to drop down a size, but apart from that they are a great fit. Very comfy, can see myself living in these throughout my pregnancy.
  • review score 0 Hannah on 14 December 2013
    I too had the problem of these trousers being too big around the waist. I bought my usual size and am 6 months pregnant, but the baggy waist meant I had to return them. Other than the waist the fit was good I.e. around thighs, and they were lovely fabric.
  • review score 0 Sonja on 04 December 2013
    Nice and warm, they come in quite generous sizes so order the smaller one.
  • review score 0 Josephine on 13 November 2013
    Fanatastic warm and very comfortable trousers - bought both in grey and blue. A staple item for the wardrobe. Now wearing them post-maternity with a belt during the coming winter months. Long in the leg so needed some tailoring to size for my 5 ft 3 height.
  • review score 0 Victoria Schofield on 06 November 2013
    The comfiest and most flattering maternity trousers I have ever bought. This is my third pregnancy and I bought these as I'm starting to show a little earlier than I have before. They fit beautifully with plenty of room for when bump gets bigger. The fabric washes well and looks smart for casual trousers. A definite winner for me. I wish they came in more than two colours!
  • review score 0 Vicki on 20 September 2013
    I brought these cords whilst on a weekend away in York and they are amazing, beautifully cut, soft and strong, the waistband is very comfy and they can be dressed up or down. Just about to order a second pair!!
  • review score 0 Sally on 04 September 2013
    Lovely trousers but unfortunately too big for me. I ordered size 8 which is my normal size but had to return.
  • review score 0 Nora on 26 August 2013
    Nice trousers, good cut. I bought these in the third trimester for my rather large bump and they stay up nicely. I bought my usual size and they fit well.
  • review score 0 Jessica land on 18 January 2013
    Brilliant pair of trousers , so comfortable
  • review score 0 Julie on 01 January 2013
    Lovely rich dark navy colour and good quality soft, stretchy cord. Slim fitting but still very comfortable. The waistband is lose at the moment (26 weeks), but hopefully that means they'll see me through the rest of my pregnancy.
  • review score 0 Alison on 08 October 2012
    Fantastic trousers. I had terrible trouble finding a pair that were affordable, but fitted nicely, had the correct length and from somewhere easy to order from.

    The quality is fantastic especially considering they are only 29. I would definitely recommend them.

    It prompted me to visit the JoJo Maman store in Windsor where I also managed to find more affordable, excellent quality, comfortable clothes. I'll be going back before Christmas!
  • review score 0 Jane on 21 September 2012
    These are fab!...really comfy and smart enough for work, but like all JoJo maternity wear...big!...I am normally a 12/14 pre-pregnancy, and am comfortably in a size 10 in these at 7 months and think they will last the duration..unless I have a growth explosion!
  • review score 0 Elizabeth on 20 September 2012
    Fantastic cut and fabric. These cords are super comfortable and stylish. The perfect pair of trousers. So good I brought a second pair.
  • review score 0 Karen on 13 September 2012
    I have just lived in these for the past three weeks - I debated buying them so near to the end of my pregnancy (was then 34 weeks) but so glad I did because they have been great and so comfortable to wear. Nice quality cord that washes well and rich colour. I'm normally a 10/12 and found the size 12 ideal. I'm quite short (5'4) and the leg length was perfect for me. Wish these came in other colours as I'd definitely have bought another pair.
  • review score 0 Julie on 02 September 2012
    Good quality cotton fabric, soft and fairly thick. I had to shorten them so I had the right leg length, but this hasn't altered the look of them adversely. Lovely deep navy colour which has washed well so far. Feel and look much smarter than jeans. The stretchy top is comfy and you can roll it under your bump if you prefer. Quite a generous fit, so if you're between two sizes, you could try the smaller size. I'm an older mum so I prefer to be well covered up and fairly conservatively dressed, so these are just the job - I wish they did them in other colours (and different leg lengths!).
