Not too long ago I was griping about maternity jeans (surprise, surprise) when a reader, Melissa, told me to check out Lilac Clothing, specifically that something was special about their jeans. Before I could even get to it, Melissa had contacted Lilac and they got in touch with me so that I could try some pieces from their store. (THANK YOU, Melissa!)
What's intriguing to me about Lilac Clothing is that they design their line to accommodate all stages and body changes, whether you've never had a baby, whether you're pregnant, or whether you've just had a baby. (Read more on their About Us page.)
I got to try 3 pieces, one of which is a pair of Lilac Clothing's jeans, which I'll get to below!
I dressed this up for an upcoming summer wedding, but it can also be a little more casual with black booties and a faux leather jacket for a night out. You could also probably pair it with a denim jacket, sandals, and a colorful statement necklace or scarf for casual wear.

And finally, Lilac's famous denim. I've had one hell of a time finding a pair of normal maternity skinny jeans, which is why you haven't really seen me in any lately. I've tried a billion stores already, and it's drama. When I heard about Lilac Denim I was so curious to know what the big deal was! How is it different from other maternity jeans? How is it good for people who aren't pregnant too?
WELL, in addition to having a maternity panel, these jeans have an internal adjustable waistband that you can make tighter or looser depending on what stage your body is in. It grows and shrinks with you!
There's an elastic waistband that you can secure with a button on each side, and you can pull the waistband tighter or expand it depending on your needs. That way the waist fits you perfectly every time!
Plus, the panel is really comfy. I've been picky about maternity panels, but this material is super soft, doesn't irritate my dry skin, and does not uncomfortably squeeze you like many panels I've tried. This panel is a winner! Even if you're not pregnant, the panel can be folded down to make a very comfy waistband, or you can utilize it as shape wear to help give structure and support to your midsection.
Honestly, they seem to get comfier the longer I wear them too. Gotta love a pair of jeans that does that!
I love this bright coral pair, but it also comes in cobalt, polka dots (!!), teal (!!), white, burgundy, and several different cuts of regular blue denim.
I know they are way more expensive than I'm used to paying for and featuring on this blog, BUT Lilac Clothing is offering us a whopping 30% off their Spring 2014 line and all denim with code PMTLOVE!
If you are looking for quality pieces that accommodate your body at various stages--whether it's from pregnancy or other reasons for weight fluctuation--I highly recommend Lilac Clothing! Remember to use the discount code PMTLOVE!
