My Top 5 Maternity Leggings

Finding comfortable and flattering maternity wear can be extremely difficult, but these leggings are worth the investment in my opinion. There are so many new things to adapt to and learn during pregnancy, including your constantly changing body, so I decided to round up my favorite leggings over two pregnancies for my fellow mamas-to-be!

Here are my top 5 favorite maternity leggings that (for the majority) you can wear both during maternity AND postpartum:

1. P’tula Bare Leggings and Shorts

This material is just….wow. SO COMFY! If you are going to purchase any non-maternity activewear, these are the ones! The material is incredibly soft and stretchy so they will fit post-pregnancy as well. I got the Bare leggings in my normal size small and sized up to a medium in the Bare shorts. They are worth every penny. Plus the deep blue color is beautiful! Shop it here.

  • Best for lounging or low impact exercise
  • True to size
  • Flattering on the booty

2. Lululemon Align Leggings

These leggings are highly recommended for pregnancy and I was curious if they really lived up to the hype! I put off trying them for a long time due to the price and now I can’t stop wearing them. They stretch really well over the bump in every trimester and will work great for after baby too! Shop it here.

  • High quality fabric
  • Multiple colors to choose from
  • Stretches easily
  • True to size or size up one

3. Ptula Peak Leggings

These leggings are like butter! They are so stretchy and comfortable- I also own them in the shorts version in multiple colors as well. I would definitely recommend sticking to your normal size since they do have so much stretch. Shop it here.

Why you’ll love it:

  • Really comfortable
  • Stretches easily for all trimesters
  • True to size

4. Colorfulkola Leggings

If you are looking for an affordable pair of maternity leggings on Amazon that will also work for postpartum, search no further! I’ve had these for YEARS and they are still holding up great. Shop it here.

Why you’ll love it:

  • Durable fabric
  • The price
  • True to size or size up one

5. Senita Lux Leggings

If I had to choose one pair of maternity leggings specifically for workouts, these are it. They have a sculpting fabric with POCKETS! I didn’t know how much I love having pockets in leggings but it fits my phone perfectly without it falling out. I got these at the beginning of my first trimester and the belly panel has grown with my bump wonderfully. These are the only leggings with an over the belly panel that I can tolerate wearing during this pregnancy. Shop it here.

Why you’ll love it:

  • Over the belly panel
  • Scooped back
  • True to size
  • Pockets

Honorable Mention Joggers:

  1. Senita Studio Skin Joggers- shop here
  2. Born Primitive Maternity Rest Day Joggers – shop here.

Whatever type of exercise you are able to do during pregnancy, I am proud of you for staying active and hope these pieces help you stay comfortable as you transition in your new journey of motherhood!
