I just entered my 3rd trimester this past weekend and I'm starting to feel rather frumpy and awkward. That belly just keeps expanding and I'm not feeling particularly glamorous or pretty as the days continue to plod along.
...when I wear my Mamasita maternity jeans from Chip & Pepper. They're stylish and flattering - and they have just the right amount of stretch. They are my only pair of maternity jeans that truly combat the "baggy bottom" look (which is definitely not the look that I'm going for, to say the least).
The wash that I have is nice and dark, yet it also has that modern "worn" look. The bootcut style really elongate the legs and the "magic" pouch helps my belly look a little smaller than it actually is. I appreciate that. I have under 90 days to go and these jeans are sure to continue to make an appearance up until the very end (and perhaps post-partum too...).
The regular price tag is $225, but you can get 50% off your entire C & P order by using checkout coupon code 50%OFF (now through 01-07-09). Please read my original review (see link below) for notes about sizing.
P.S. Does the above photo look familiar? It's in the exact same pose (well, almost the same pose...it was harder to get in that pose this time around...) and the exact same outfit as this one. I was 4 months pregnant in the first one and I'm 6 months pregnant in the second one.
WIN IT! One winner will receive a pair of Chip & Pepper mamasita maternity jeans in the size of her choice (valued at $225). To enter, leave a comment on this post prior to Wednesday, December 31 at midnight (don’t forget to follow the rules). * Winner must provide a U.S. mailing address.

*UPDATE* The winner is #115 Stacey. Congratulations!
Decent maternity jeans are hard to find.
I would love to have a great pair of maternity jeans. I can never find any that fit me and my belly well!
Wow! those are an amazing pair of jeans...I also like the Bump Watch Maternity Bootcut Jean IN Hundred Mile House but I honestly could never afford them...
I could use these! thanks.
These would come in handy!
Great jeans! Thanks for the chance to win!
no more mommy jeans! :)
These are really stylish and beautiful!
So hard to find maternity jeans and these are great! Of all my regular clothes, I miss my jeans the most and these ease the pain! Happy New Year!
Awesome jeans. It is important to have a few nice things when you are pregnant. Have to have something to make up for some of the rotten days. Anyway I'd love to win a pair for my high school friend who just found out today that she is pregnant!
You look great!! :)
my co-worker could really use those.
My daughter-in-law is due to have her first child June 30th so this would be an ideal gift.
those look so hip and comfy :)
I love these jeans! I am 5 1/2 months pregnant and would love to win them!
very nice jeans
Wow! I can't believe that you're six months pregnant in that picture! I'm seven months along and I feel HUGE!

I need jeans desperately!!!!!!!!!!!! I am in my second trimester and have to have some kind of fashionable gear.

I am pregnant with my first child and want to remain fashionable.
These look great! Thanks for the giveaway. ;)
These look like very comfortable jeans
This is an item I need, but would not be able to afford. It would be nice to win it and flaunt my bump!
I would love to have these for my first pregnancy...I'll be looking for a pair of jeans in the coming weeks, so this would be perfect timing!
It would be so nice to have a wonderful pair of designer jeans to wear when you are pregnant that not only fit nicely and comfortably, but make you look and feel sexy and confident too! They look fantastic! Thank you for the opportunity to enter.
While pregnant with my daughter, I really couldn't see myself spending more than $40 on a pair of jeans since I knew they would be worn so little! That said, I drooled over those sexy designer jeans made for pregnant ladies! I wanted to be sexy too :) Anyhow, my hubby and I are TTC and these would be such a luxury to my otherwise boring maternity wardrobe!
I need a good pair of maternity jeans, haven't found a great one yet.
What a great way to feel pretty while you are pregnant.
my sister is expecting - she would love these
My best friend is due with her first! Would love to win for her.
These jeans would be so Perfect for my oldest daughter who is expecting her first baby.
It would definitely let her know that she can be pregnant and stylish at the same time.
Thank you so much for always offering such a wonderful contest.
Happy Holidays !
I am six months pregnant with baby #3 and I would love to have these jeans! Thanks so much for the chance!
One can never have enough jeans for comfort during maternity!
great jeans.... my sister has a friend who could really use them
i hope i win
I am definitely in the market for a great pair of maternity jeans, and I would love a pair (finally!) that is long enough so that I am not flashing my ankles. These sound awesome-- and thanks for the tip on sizing. Very helpful.
I'm in the last stage of pregnancy, and somehow, even my maternity clothes are getting too tight. I think I need a quick refresh of my wardrobe, including a pair of pants, to get me to the end! Who knew you'd need 2 sets of clothes during pregnancy. Aye carumba.
Finding maternity jeans like this isn't easy!
I need these. I am six weeks pregnant.
The jeans look great and would be just perfect for a friend that I have who is afraid to wear jeans while pregnant! She would find these flattering!
Thanks for the awesome contest! One can never have enough jeans!
Oooh, for baby #3 I would so love to have a nice pair of maternity jeans. I borrowed a pair with #1 and missed them when pregnant with #2 but couldn't quite justify the expense...thanks for the chance and for sharing a good pair.
These jeans look so nice and comfy. I would definitely love them!
Who doesn't want to TRY to look and feel glamorous when pregnant?!?! That was one of the challenging things for me because I put on 40+ pounds. Oh well...it is soooo worth it! :)
Wife could really use 1 nice pair
They look nice and are comfortable too. A great combo
great prize Thank you.
I would never be able to "buy" a pair this expensive, but I'd love to "win" a pair for my best friend!
These would be great to win!!
Love jeans; can't have too many!
Wow, those are the best looking maternity jeans I have ever seen

A pair of stylish maternity jeans sounds really nice! And since all I can afford are the cheaper, less stylish maternity jeans, this would be great!!
I'd love the win these! I can't bring myself to buy maternity pants yet and I'm not sure how long my bella band will last!!!
O, how I would love to win these! Each day of this pregnancy it's a chore to decide which of the uncomfortable, unflattering pants I'm going to wear that day.
they look so comfy
This seems like a great product i would love to win one.
can't wait for you to ship my prize
Please pick ME!!!
I struck out with jeans my first time around. They were either too big and made me look frumpier than I felt, or they were too tight with a waist that sat too low, so they were always shimmying off my hips. I am still searching for THE perfect maternity jeans so I can say adios to my maternity yoga pants that are comfortable but incredibly threadbare and will not last another go around.
You look great- and congrats! These look amazing
I could so use a pair of pick-me-up jeans. Last night I was laying uncomfortably in bed and I told my husband that I can't believe I'm only a little over halfway through this pregnancy and I already feel as if my belly is too big. In a month I'm going to look back on these days and WISH my belly was the size it is now. Whew. All for a great cause though, right?
I would love to win this for my daughter -in-law who is expecting grandbaby #1.
I'm due May 5 and already outgrew the size I bought. This would be perfect!
My ncice would love these!
I'd love to win!
oh....I would love to have a pair of these for my 3rd time around. Finding the right maternity jeans makes me curl up in the fetal positions. Hard to find...
Jeans that fit "right" make a person feel good any time, but during pregnancy it's an especially fine feeling.
in my choice of size!? ima big girl-before pregnancy!
I really need a nice pair of jeans that fit and are comfortable.
I would love to win these for my sister.
Would love to win these jeans.
These are great jeans, hope I win.
Wow those are very cute maternity jeans...they look like regular jeans!
I really need a nice pair of jeans that fit and are comfortable. Thanks for hosting this contest!!
Nice maternity clothes make you fell a little bit better about yourself.
If they look half as flattering on me as they do you I will want a dozen pairs.
Great jeans. Look really comfortable
I can't say you look a whole lot more pregnant, maybe you should try again in another two months... ha! Cute jeans, cuter mama!
These look great! I'm definitely adding them to my growing list of clothes I must have for my next pregnancy (which is hopefully soon!).
I live in jeans & its so hard to find flattering maternity styles. These jeans look great!
