    Comfortable Jeans!

    On a similar note:

    I don't normally shop in Walmart, for a lot of reasons, but I got a tip from a friend about this, so I broke my own rule and went over there. And I discovered that they have a good selection of jeans, khakis, and capris, all in stretchy fabric and with elastic waists. As long as you wear your top tucked out, they don't look any different from what everyone else is wearing. If you buy them in a larger size than you would normally wear, they still fit nicely on the legs but are loose in the waist and crotch. They are also very cheap.

    I just had to tip off all my IC buddies!

    I know I have said this on other threads, but look for pants made out of traveler's material. It is a rayon/spandex material with little ribs running down it. Chicos makes great ones. There are Chico outlets in a lot of places (Foley, Alabama-near gulf shores), Other stores carry them, but I have found the Chico ones to be the softest and they wash and dry like a dream. They have elastic in the back but are so stretchy and comfortable. You can find these online and on EBay, too. Their sizing is unique (a 3 is equal to a 14/16). For once I can be a size 2 or 3. Anyway, they are great for days when I am really hurting. Most all of the Chicos pants have spandex in them and that really helps with the IC Belly. Thanks for the tip about the maternity pants. I have Chicos jeans which stretch but sometimes the seam can irritate me because of my VV.

    Yep, I have some really "sexy" ones ( I am still 25 after all and trying to feel like it!) My hubby loves them and had no idea they were maternity until I told him. They have a zipper, belt loops, everything like normal pants, but are lower in the waist (under my belly button ) and higher in the back and elastic in the back. They have an adjustable waist with a string and the other cute pair has an adjustable waist on the side with buttons. Have you tried the gaucho pants? I love them. Mine are a jersey material and are cool in the summer yet look almost like a skirt. Not as dressy and I can move around, but SO comfy and cool! I love used stores too (we have two kids and a low income) but I found my maternity pants on Ebay, which I also love for clothes. They were both by Old Navy and used and much cheaper than buying pants brand new. And like I said, no one can tell. I wear longer shirts with them (the whole tunic look is back so it has been easy!) and no one is the wiser!

    HI!
    I found a great pair of sweat pants at the Goodwill also! They have the elastic around the legs (men's sweats) and I just love them! I wish I could find another pair!
    I have trouble wearing some jeans, if they are tight in the crotch section......they make my uretha hurt. So I try to find ones that aren't made like that. I haven't tried maternity.....but maybe I should! Thanks for the tip! Roxie

    found pain free jeans!

    I went to the Salvation Army today. Bought a bag full of cloths for only $21. :woohoo: I foudn some nice shorts, sweat pants with the elastic in the ankle. Can't find those at the stores anymore and these at the Salvation Army were in the mens department but who cares. Who can tell men from women sweat pants? Then I was looking at the pants. I was thinking these have funny looking tops to them. Each price tag had "MA" written on it. Then it dawned on me. I was in the maternity section. But I did find a pair of jeans that fit me well. Plus the extra stretching stomach part works great. Why I didn't think of this before I don't know. Next time I go I will see if I can find anymore jean maternity pants again. I am all set for summer and winter now. Anyone else wear maternity cloths?
