If you're mourning the fact that you can't fit into your favourite pair of skinny jeans, try one of these pairs of stylish dungarees on for size. Versatile, practical and comfortable: maternity dungarees make the perfect pregnancy outfit.
Some of the most fashionable women in the world wear them during pregnancy, and dungarees are really in right now (according to our friends at Grazia), even if you're not pregnant - and even better, you can even rock them after your pregnancy and beyond.
This summer staple should be part of every maternity wardrobe. With so much choice, from black to denim, shorts to jumpsuits, we've done some research and found some of the best pairs you can buy online today from the comfort of your sofa.
For maximum comfort, choose a pair that has at least two per cent elastane for a hint of stretch.
What's the best way to style dungarees?
The options are endless when you decide what to pair your maternity dungarees with, but here at Mother&Baby, we like to keep things casual and classic. Think plain white t-shirt with a pair of white trainers. If you have a pair of black or denim dungarees, you can add a chic twist by pairing them with a Breton striped top underneath or try adding a scarf to tie your hair back for an effortless look.
The most important thing, however, is that mum-to-be is as comfortable as possibly can be. Layers will help keep you cool if you need to shed them during a hot flush or throw on a chunky knit if it's closer to winter. Dungarees are a staple item for your maternity wardrobe all year round, so you can stretch the imagination when it comes to styling and add your flourishes.

Review: "I bought these in an XL at 28 weeks pregnant, usually a size 12 but nearer to a 14 now plus tummy!
I love them! They're so comfy, plenty of room for me and bump. They're made out of a crepe fabric which is reasonably thick, because they have some elastic in them they get baggier the more you wear so loose shape but tighten up after a warm wash. They're not full length on me so I've rolled them up (I'm 5.7) & as some reviews have mentioned the button holes are just a thin slit but I just thread the straps threw twice."

Review: "Really like these harem dungarees. I'm a 14 and ordered the large which is a UK medium. I think there is plenty of room, not tight. Material is a decent denim. Not too thick and certainly not thin. I'm 5.5 and the length is just right and looks nice turned up. Very comfortable."

It's super cute and comfortable, I'm going to try tailoring it after I give birth to wear it regularly. The belly area is currently too big for me (15 weeks pregnant so far) but I'm excited for how it will look later on."

Review: "Very nice. I wanted a midi length and looked everywhere, then I came across this. I am almost 5 feet 8 and it is mid shin length I would say. I bought a bigger size, so nice and roomy and very comfy, but looks smart too."

When you find a maternity outfit that works for your daily routine that is comfy and fashionable - don't hesitate; just buy it! This stretch-jersey jumpsuit will not only ensure you're bang on trend, it will fit you through all nine months of your pregnancy.
ASOS reviews said the fit runs large and the quality is good: "The material is quite thick (not a light denim) so perfect for winter and summer evenings. I started wearing this at 13 weeks and it felt a little big, but at 16 weeks or fit perfectly on the smallest setting. There's three buttons to expand the waist as your bump grows. I've had so many compliments wearing this! Fire true to size, if you want it super baggy then go a size up. I'm 5'5.5" and the length is perfect and can be rolled up to be cropped!"

Review: "Absolutely fab! I bought a size 10 which was my pre-pregnancy size. I am currently 7 months pregnant and there is still room to grow and adjustable buttons. The best bit is I’m 6 feet tall and the dungarees are a perfect length. Money very well spent. Very comfortable."

These maternity dungarees are a little more expensive but offer great comfort and stretch. The leg is stylish, casual, and straight which makes them flattering and not to baggy or constricting. They have side buttons, adjustable straps, and a handy front pocket.
Review: "I’d spent ages trying to find some reasonably-priced, good quality dungarees (they seem to sell out quickly) and then discovered these. They’re a little long on me (I’m 5’’4’) but I just turn them up. Also, as my bump’s quite low, I leave the top side buttons open to make them that little bit more comfortable for me. There’s elastic in them that can be adjusted, which may help tailor them to your particular body shape. A great buy."
