Jo Fold Waist Active Pants - Simply Wonderful

I love these pants, so lovely and comfortable, and can be dressed up or down, depending on what top you are wearing. I wish they came in another colour as well, I would definitely buy if in a winter white or cream. Can truly recommend, run true to size.

Quick Q...

  • How do maternity sizes work?

    At Pea in a Pod our sizes correspond to your pre-pregnancy size.

    It is normal to increase 1-2 cup sizes in the bust and ribs and to put on weight across the hip and thigh areas. However all our garments are specially designed to accommodate for this growth, so in most cases, you will remain your same pre-pregnancy size.

    We have listed on each product page the measurements for a size AU 10, plus, the measurements of the fabric stretched around specific areas (tummy, bust) so you can be sure that the garment will fit right up until go-time!

    Usually, grading is marked 2.5cm up or down a size, so use the size 10 measurements as a guide.

    If garments have only a little stretch, we will list our recommendation of sizing for you.

    If you don't like size charts (who does!), email us the style you are thinking about, and we can personally recommend a size for you. Find out more HERE
