2. Séraphine Holi leggings

“The best maternity leggings I found were Séraphine. I lived in them when I was pregnant. They were over-the-bump and so comfy. They washed well and I could wear them more than once before they needed washing. They were comfy after I had my c-section too. They don't sag at the knees either, like other ones I've tried!”
