Maternity leggings are so comfy, I might just never go back.
Gray zip up hoodie with thumbholes (only $24 – normally an XS, sized up to S for the bump) / Black sports bra ($22 for a pack of 3 – normally an XS, sized up to M) / Black maternity workout leggings ($20 – S) / White leather sneakers (6.5 TTS) / Charlotte Tilbury lipstick in ‘Pillow Talk’
I haven’t purchased many maternity-specific clothes during my pregnancy, but a good pair of everyday leggings and workout leggings is a must. So far, these fleece-lined maternity leggings have been my favorite for NYC’s cold winter weather. Since I’m trying to stay active during the rest of my pregnancy (which didn’t happen during my first semester), I figured bump-friendly fitness gear is a must!
I snagged a couple of pairs from Amazon, and this affordable pair of maternity workout leggings happen to be my favorite – so much so that I now own them in black, gray and purple! They are SO comfortable and stretchy, and while there’s a bit of extra fabric around my joints, I like that it will continue to accommodate my rapidly growing belly.
Bonus points that it has side pockets – they kind of remind me of my favorite pre-pregnancy workout leggings, minus the compression. I’ve worn them for spinning at home on my stationary bike, yoga and muscle strengthening exercises – and while they’re probably not meant to endure high impact movements, chances are that I won’t be going that HAM during pregnancy anyway!
