What happened to the old maternity pants?

Maternity pants used to have the stretchy part come over the belly, and now it us hard to fine those. At the end of pregnancy it feels like my belly is pushing the pants down so I'm sagging all the time! What happened to the old ones with the huge stretchy band you could pull over your belly? Plus, if I have a loose shirt, I don't want some little kid getting a peak at my belly as they walk under me! Where can I find the old pants?

The Gap has some, I think. I had a few pairs of dress pants with that stretchy top from The Gap (called full panel, or something of the sort). I think Old Navy has some too.....?

Thats all my Motherhood maternity and kohla sells. They drove me nuts with DS and I have had a hard time finding the other style.

Thyme Maternity has (I think) 3 different styles of mat pants - the full belly panel, the "under the belly" band, and then ones that just have a little panel on each side, but have a real button and zipper.
I'm the same as you - I prefer the full panel otherwise my bottoms are always falling down!

Target/Liz Lange has them, too. That's what I bought. the panel is a lycra material now, when I was having my other kids it was cotton. I like the lycra a lot more.

Re: What happened to the old maternity pants?

the only brand ive had good luck with is motherhood. i tried to get some of the secret fit pants from jcpenny, they were very tight in the thigh and too loose on the belly i was constantly pulling my pants up i hate the nylon material, i very much prefer the cotton stretch full belly

I normally fold them down but I have some from Goodwill (Target ones) and Ross (found a TON here) -- shirts too.
