We all have days when we look in the mirror and think we could pass for 6 months pregnant (right?). When the bloat comes hard and fast, putting on clothes can seem like the last thing you want to do. But when we can’t stay in our pyjamas, it’s good to have some supportive and stylish trousers on hand. So we’ve chosen 4 of our best trousers for bloating.
1. The Leggings – JML Hollywood Pants
Hailed as the ‘waist shaping leggings’, JML’s Hollywood Pants instantly pull in your stomach for a slimming and smoothing effect. The high waist gives you comfort and support without feeling tight on your tum making them the perfect trousers for bloating.
We absolutely love our Hollywood Pants! Perfect for work, an evening out and for chilling out at home in. (But ladies, please note they are a little on the see-through side, so choose your underwear wisely.)
We recommend going up a size as they can come up quite small, and to keep them in the best condition, wash inside out to help prevent the dreaded bobbling.

2. The Joggers – Kintsugi
Inclusive fashion brand, Kintsugi, launched in January. You will find a range of timeless pieces, designed to suit everyone: ‘regardless of age, size or disability’. Their Farley Joggers, as modelled by Caitlyn Fulton aka The Girl on Wheels, are just the right combination of comfort and style.
The elasticated waistband and adjustable drawcord is ‘great if you have fluctuations in size’ and means there’s always room for pudding!

3. The Jeans – I Am Denim
We recently came across this brand on Instagram and fell in love! I Am Denim is the first clothing brand in the WORLD that creates jeans designed for people to wear after having abdominal surgery. Their Skinny Fit Jeans are made in England and come in a classic dark navy.
The innovative ‘ultimate second skin waistband’ gently supports your stomach and it even comes with a pocket to store an ostomy bag!
Perfect for anyone who has any tummy troubles and didn’t think they could pull on a pair of jeans.

4. The Slim Fit Ones
You don’t only have to wear high-waisted trousers when you need an extra bit of support around your waist.
These Crop Slim-Fit trousers from Mango also fit the bill. Made from a soft cotton blend fabric and with a hook and zip fastening, they fit comfortably against the skin. Plus they come in 8 different designs, so there’s something for everyone!

For a comfy and budget friendly option, we think the Hollywood Pants are a spoonie must have. When they wear out, you can always get yourself a new pair.
For a treat day, we love the ethos and story behind I Am Denim. Their amazing jeans are worth every penny and everyone needs a pair of trusty skinnies in their wardrobe!
Do you have any trousers you love to wear on one of those bloat days? We’d love to hear your recommendations.
