Review: Allison Izu Maternity Denim

When you are pregnant, your regular jeans may be the first thing you have to give up. Even though I am not a jean person, a good pair of maternity jeans is an essential. Every pregnant woman should own at least one pair of maternity jeans as they can be worn throughout your entire pregnancy. I have worked with Allison Izu in the past and am super excited to have the chance to test out her new maternity denim. I am ecstatic to know Allison is also expecting her second child and we’re due around the same time.

What I am wearing:
Denim: Hotel Straight Skinny Maternity Denim c/o Allison Izu - size 00
Top: Gap Maternity Eyelet Top - size XS
Wedges: Target Tawny Wedges (small sizes are available and on sale)
Necklace: Amrita Singh Montauk Necklace

I am wearing the Hotel Straight Skinny in this post and loving them. They’re lightweight and so perfect for the summer. These jeans can be worn full length, or rolled up to a shorter length for a capri-style look. For the 1st and 2nd trimester, the knit panel can be folded like an elastic waist under the baby bump. For the 3rd trimester, I know I will appreciate the full panel once my baby bump is bigger and it also helps to keep your jeans up.

You can customize your very own maternity denim for an additional $10. This option can be added to any jeans you order. Maternity jeans will be customize for each customer. I recommend the Hotel Straight Skinny, the Honolulu Wide Leg Trouser and the Chinatown Trouser because these styles all have a lot of stretch. Although, maternity sizes work the same as regular clothing sizes, Allison suggests you go up a size or 2 depending on how much you’ve grown from your previous sizes. Please note, the Hotel St and the Chinatown run small.

The jeans are now only $98 so maternity jeans will be $108. If you are interested in these jeans, enter code “PetiteLG” at check out to get an additional 20% off (minimum purchase of $90 and this code doesn’t apply to the jeans on sale for $49)

Happy Friday!
