Dear Stylemma, I’m pregnant and just starting to show. I need to find some maternity trousers — comfy ones for around the house and smart ones for the office. What do you suggest?

Nelo Maternity, 39 Clarendon St, D2, tel: (01) 679-1336, has a fantastic range of maternity wear, including trousers suitable for the working week and for a lazy weekend. The Arabella B black, wide-leg trouser, €129, a best-seller, is flattering and office-appropriate. The Cocoon Bootleg jean, €79, has a generous elastic waistband and no uncomfortable zips. If you prefer a slimmer leg, Citizens of Humanity Kelly Bootcut maternity jean, €235, is a great choice and more funky then frumpy.

But our favourite: Mamas and Papas Jersey Trousers, in charcoal, €40 — they’re so comfortable you’ll never want to take them off.
