I love these pants! They are extremely comfortable and perfect for my changing belly! Some notes to prospective buyers - if you’re in between sizes, size up. I’m sometimes between a medium and a large, I chose a large which is great because these pants shrunk a bit after the first couple washes. Also, when I first tried them on, the linen fabric was extremely itchy. I washed them as instructed and ironed them, and they’ve been great ever since, glad I stuck with them!!
Amazing new life I purchased my first pair of these in olive and had some issues with them after a few wears. I struggled with the seams ripping, the waist not staying up and eventually a busted pair that I could no longer wear. I was devastated because I wore these pants weekly. I reached out and shared my concerns along with my sadness. I was overwhelmed by the generosity of Emme and found out the pants had an upgrade. These pants are better than ever! The fabric is thicker, the waist stays up and the fit is AMAZING! This was the best shopping experience of my life and I cannot wait to buy more of these pants in other colors. I’m proud to be sporting around these beautiful pants and hope anyone reading reviews will buy a pair too.
Super cozy! I love these pants! I'm just entering my second trimester and it feels like they will fit through all the different stages of pregnancy. They're well made and I'm hoping they breathe well with the linen being so nice. The green color is really pretty and they feel really really well made. I am so happy to have a nice pair of linen pants to wear that are also comfortable with my growing belly!
So comfy and cool I just love these pants so much. Could live in them! Great for early pregnancy and supporting a growing bump. Even looking forward to wearing in postpartum. Love that these are made in small batches in the USA. I feel cloaked in love. :-)
Loving these pants, cute and practical! I LOVE these pants. I got them when I was first pregnant when couldn’t stand anything tight being on my stomach due to nausea. I am currently 24 weeks and still loving these pants! They grow so nicely with my bump and are just so comfortable especially since the linen keeps getting softer. I can tell they will last my entire pregnancy + I will definitely be able to wear them after as well.
Great pants! I love these pants. They're not perfect, but they're close. The waistband is adequately stretchy and can easily fit around my 21 week, 5th child belly with stretch to spare. I haven't found it to be terribly itchy by the end of the day, but maybe just slightly so. Granted, everything feels good to get off the belly by bed time! My (minor) qualms - they slide down. I did not size up and they fit me well everywhere else. If I had gone down a size I think they might be itchy in the waistband (even if they stayed up better), but too snug elsewhere. For pants in a fabric with no stretch, that wouldn't be good! Granted, I know they'll fit until delivery, but I do have to pull them back up with some regularity. My fear is that once I hit postpartum they'll be too loose and not stay up. For a spendy piece, I hope that's not the case. Second, the waistband is sort of....thick. Squishy and stretchy and comfy, yes. But you either have to have a shirt tucked in or wear a loose/flowy top over them. A snug, modern maternity shirt hugs the thick waistband and just doesn't look nice. All in all, I'd buy them again and am crossing all fingers and toes they'll still work for me postpartum!
My favorite maternity pants Love at first wear! These are cute, comfortable, and help me feel quite put-together (not easy to achieve during pregnancy, and a welcome self-image booster!). The cut and type of elastic waist is quite clever- I'm optimistic that they will indeed be excellent non-maternity pants for years to come. It pairs really well with the white button-down shirt from Emme as well! I've tried quite a few other styles of more maternity-specific pants (from other companies) that are purely functional, leave me feeling frumpy, and are designed to be worn only during pregnancy. This pair truly stands out as unique. Thank you for making this! The one thing, as others noted, is that the elastic band does get... noticeable (I wouldn't go quite so far as to say itchy, but almost) by the end of the day. This is not an issue if you have something tucked in (I've started wearing a base layer tank top that I can keep tucked in). Also, I find that I can't put much in the pockets (definitely not my phone) without the weight pulling the pants down. Neither of these issues are dealbreakers for me, though- I still find myself wearing these pants all the time.
Great maternity pants I bought these around 20 wks after I ripped my previous pair of linen non-maternity pants when sitting down. They are comfortable, a beautiful color, and I can tell they will last me all the way through my pregnancy as I continue to grow, and still be wearable afterwards as well! The waist design is really genius. I love having a pair of pants I can wear everyday and know will be comfortable and look good with many different tops.
Breezy and Beautiful! I love these pants! The color is beautiful, the fabric is breezy, they are versatile and most importantly - these pants are SO comfortable. I've been living in these, as most of my regular pants don't fit anymore at 16 weeks. If you made these pants in a rust or black color, I would tempted to get another pair! My only note is that it might be nice to make the waistband a bit softer if possible? However, these pants are so comfy it isn't a deal breaker for me.
Comfy and stylish I love these pants! I'm not pregnant (had my last baby 3.5 years ago) but these are way more comfy than leggings or other stretchy pants. The high waist makes it stylish especially if you like tucking things in such as a blousy top. I do think if you're not pregnant, you need to pull up the smocked part to be high-waist or else it looks a little unflattering, but when it hits higher, the look is intentional. Olive is not normally a color I would choose, but it is deep and rich and a nice neutral. I definitely do not need more pants but am seriously tempted by the idea of black ones (I saw on IG that Emme is maybe making black ones of this style). I was a little worried about maintaining linen, but I just pulled them out of the cold water wash cycle when done -- ahem, without letting it sit overnight in the washer like often happens -- shook it out, and hung it over the back of a chair to dry. It was certainly smooth enough to wear afterwards without any additional sprucing up in the dryer. Or an iron (what's that?).
Amazing! Got these pants at 38 weeks and have been living in them. Still haven’t delivered so will need to update on them for PP but I bet I’m going to love them!!
Wonderful pant! Love these pants! I purchased them when I was around 12 weeks, as most of the pants I own are a tighter fit and were already starting to be uncomfortable for full-day wear. At 15 weeks now, they're the perfect pant for throwing on with anything and knowing I'll be comfortable. It might be nice to somehow line the waist with a softer fabric (though I'm sure that's a nightmare from a sewing perspective,) as the waist gets a bit itchy after a full day of wear, but this isn't a dealbreaker. I'd buy another pair in black, if available!
Truly the EVERYDAY pant Now THIS is the pant that every pregnant and postpartum mom needs. The waistband is so comfortable and the color is gorgeous. I've been living in these pants lately.
Pure Comfort I love these pants! I love the color, the linen and how perfectly comfortable they are. I’m not even pregnant and I wear them all the time. I love to wear dresses since I hate tight things around my waist but these are as comfortable as a dress. I’d love to see them in a natural colored linen as well.
Best pants I own! I absolutely adore these pants, I’ve already worn them twice! They’re so breathable and versatile! Can’t wait to wear this piece through all walks of my life!
