Mine were very, very comfortable. They had a stretchy waist band, and were from good will. I had been wearing my husband's khaki pants to work for a while, by then, which weren't comfortable and didn't fit right but I couldn't even get into my own jeans by then, so my mom took me out to find maternity jeans. I didn't like the kind with the belly-stretchy-cover thing, just the ones with the stretchy waist band. Nothin beats a nice pair of comfy, roomy sweat/gym pants though.
