I'm looking for recommendations for some really nice pregnancy leggings. Pre-bump I invested in a pair of Lululemons which were not cheap but which I wore all the time as they were so comfy and flattering - nice thick stretchy material.
Can anyone recommend something similar with space for bump?
I’ve also been struggling to find any - tried the gap ones which looked good but found them far too thick and would get hot doing any exercise in them. Also tried Jojo mama Bebe (name?) from ASOS which were also too thick - they turned out to have fleece on the inside which wasn’t apparent from the pics and were also really unflattering. I really want some for running / gym work and so many of the pregnancy ones seemed designed for keeping you warm (rather than sweat wicking and keeping you cool).
I don't know how far along you are OP but I'm 16 weeks and have just been buying bigger sizes of normal gym stuff in primark so far. Size 14 leggings (I'm normally a 10) and the xL tshirts have lots of room still. Once I get a big bump might have to rethink the strategy though!
@fishfingerSarnies do you remember the name of the ones you ordered? I tried ones called "Maternity GapFit Sculpt gFast" and they were a really strange almost wet suit material! Maybe other ones are better??
I was also coming on to say gap! The best ones i found by far and the closest thing to non maternity fitness leggings. I love that they are thick, wore them on a walking holiday in Dorset in July at 26 weeks and wasn't too hot. Only problem with them is there isn't masses of room for bump and they only fit until around 34 weeks.
I had a pair of USA Pro yoga pants that were quite high waisted and saw me through pregnancy very well even though they weren't maternity wear. Might be worth going a size up but they were so comfy I would end up wearing them even after I couldn't exercise any more.
