At some point during pregnancy, the best maternity leggings aren’t just okay to wear—they become somewhat of a necessity. (Bless, spandex.) Whether that happens in your first, second, or third trimester, the extra room or built-in support for your growing bump can be a game changer for your overall comfort. And let’s face it, when you’re pregnant, maternity clothes that make you feel good—be it nursing bras or maternity jeans—are a must.
The best maternity leggings, of course, vary from trusty black leggings that you can wear with just about anything to performance-ready workout clothes. The biggest difference between your regular pairs and maternity styles? Extra-supportive waistbands, most of which extend high enough to fit over your growing belly with special panels for an ultra-secure fit.
If that doesn’t sound appealing to you, there’s also the option of sizing up in your regular go-to styles. Case in point? Lululemon’s famous Align Pants, which have tons of glowing reviews from pregnant women who swear by the workout leggings through all three trimesters, plus appreciate the fact that they have life well beyond the pregnancy and postpartum periods, too. If you’re ready to shop for the best maternity leggings, scroll on for the highly-reviewed pairs that the new moms and pregnant women we polled say are worth the investment.
