Pregnancy leggings for yoga/exercise

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 also ordered some Gap ones and hated them! I lived in my Lululemons so don't mind paying a bit more for quality but really struggling... Fingers crossed someone on here has some advice!!

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!

I was coming on to say gap ones, I love mine but obviously no one else does. grin

@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??

Fittamamma are great! I wore for a good 3 months after the birth too.

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.

@PeachesandPie do you by any chance remember the name of the Gap ones your ordered?? Think maybe the ones I tried are the rogue duds, so thinking of ordering more but there are 9 styles to choose from in the GapFit maternity range -

Thanks for the recommendation @starsinyourpies - I'll look into those too 👍🏼

OrangeandPink they are the gfast blackout ones in full length. Good luck!

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.

@PeachesandPie I ordered the gfast blackout ones (capri length as full length sold out) and love them! Thanks for the recommendation 👍🏼

@Swan8 you should give them a go if you’re still looking- just bear in mind the sizes come up pretty big (I’m normally a pre-pregnancy 10-12 but got the small which they say is an 8)

Boden were fantastic but don't seem to sell them anymore sad
