These relaxed linen maternity pants top the popularity polls for our mums in need of a pair that is stylishly casual yet extremely wearable.
Crafted for the busy mum who is always on-the-go and requires smart casual ensembles, these trousers check all the boxes.
1) Full length, with a straight leg. Functional front side slant and back patch pockets.
2) Lower front rise so that the stretchy jersey-knit waistband sits at the hips and may be worn over the belly or folded down to sit at the hips as desired. While the fully flexible waistband may be worn either way, we recommend that the best optimal use is to wear the waistband folded beneath the belly for support.
3) Higher back rise to provide ample posterior coverage. When folded-over, the waistband sits snug at the hips, giving subtle support around the lower back. The under-belly application will allow usage till full-term and beyond. Perfectly wearable postpartum.
4) Pure linen that drapes very well. Softens further with each wash, giving the pants a "lived-in" comfort.
Linen – is a natural textile made from the fibres of the flax plant. It is known to be the world's strongest plant fibre. Linen may be stiff initially but becomes soft and supple through handling (i.e. wear). While there are manufacturing processes to chemically "soften" linen fabric before they are put on the shelves, MEV would rather not. They want to minimise further processing that unnecessarily adds to the burden on the environment. Over some wear, mums and mums-to-be will enjoy the softness and coolness that linen offers. MEV use linen and linen blends in designs that complement the rumpled look ... afterall that is part of linen's charm.

Determine your fit for this brands maternity bottoms by measuring your hip size (fullest around your hips, beneath the belly) note: this is not your waist measurement.
For any bottom style, be it shorts, skirts, pants, jeans or leggings, measure your current hip size at the fullest and then refer to the size above for the corresponding size. Your hip size is measured at the widest part of the hips. Ensure measuring tape is horizontal as it wraps around your hip bones and buttocks. Each bottom size – determined by your hip measurement - is designed with a tolerance for expansion in belly circumference which should accommodate you to full term.
Through the course of your pregnancy, your hip measurement may increase to the next size range, in which case, a re-fit is recommended to assess the need for a new sizing.
MEV bottoms are constructed with waistbands that stretch for anticipated growth per hip size. Care and attention is paid to subtle but critical details such as technical proportions and specifications that must be uniquely considered for the pregnant shape.
