So my friend (who has a 4 months old) swears by the Gap maternity jeans. I saw they are currently 40% off so I wanted to take advantage and get a pair or two (if my bloat keeps up like this, I'm going to be forced out of my normal pants soon).

But I go to look at them and there are 5 different panel options and I don't even know what to go for. Elastic inserts, full panel, demi panel, front demi panel, or ultimate panel (who's description sounds like front demi panel - what's the difference?)

What type of panel did you find to work best / be most comfortable with Gap maternity jeans? Did you have different panel types for different trimesters?
