Maternity & Postnatal Active Support Leggings | Illuminate Reflective
These leggings are designed with your safety in mind. Whether you are out running alone, with the buggy or just in the park as the nights draw in these leggings have an incredible reflection pattern so you stay safe if a car or bike heads in your direction.
Our high waisted leggings are designed for mums by a mum.
They can be worn during pregnancy to keep you on the move and also help you post labour. They come up high to support your tummy after labour and also keep you supported when running around the soft play or walking around the shops.
I always left something in the other room when Harper was small so we've added pockets on either side large enough to hold your phone, keys, we’ve even managed to fit a bottle in them!
They are designed in such a way that they can be worn postnatally too meaning these leggings are such a great investment.
Why mamas love them
Our stretchy fabric will grow with your body from the first trimester to the third, without ever compromising on support. It also provides light compression, which can help ease lower back pain, reduce leg swelling and prevent varicose veins.
Perfect for post-partum life
You can wear these super-versatile gym leggings for as long as you like after your baby is born – in fact, they'll probably become your best friend for everything from a high-impact workout to a stroll to the shops! The high-rise waistband will continue to adapt with and gently control your postnatal tummy, giving you a flattering silhouette and boosting your confidence to simply enjoy moving your body.
Squat to your heart’s content without worrying that your leggings are letting you down! Our fabric is completely opaque and will stay that way through wash and wear. It's also the ideal thickness for preventing VPL and concealing maternity pads or knickers.
High waistband with dropped seams
These maternity gym leggings sit extra high at the waist to support your tummy throughout your pregnancy and after you've been through labour. The waistband won’t roll down or need to be pulled up constantly, and the seams are dropped to sit comfortably low on your bump (they're also strategically positioned so they won't aggravate a C-section scar).
Two large pockets
It’s a fact: pockets make life easier. Especially mum life! That’s why we’ve added one at either side of our maternity and postnatal leggings. And the best part is, they’re deep enough to easily hold your phone, keys, a muslin or even a baby bottle!
What stage are they for?
These full-length maternity leggings will see you through the Show, Glow and Grow stages of your pregnancy (check out our Bump Guide below for more guidance on the different stages). Most women find they can wear them to 40+ weeks. You can count on them for comfort and support once your baby is earthside, too, because they're designed to adapt to your changing body both during and after pregnancy.
Generally the first trimester: you're newly pregnant and your regular clothes are becoming a little tight.
Generally the second trimester: your bump has 'popped' and there's no more squeezing into your jeans with the hairband hack!
Generally the third trimester: you're in the thick of it now! You can't really see your toes anymore and baby is very much at home!
Mamas of multiples or those with truly magnificent bumps – especially towards the end of pregnancy. If you're in the 'Whoa' camp, it's likely you'll find our Classic Comfort Maternity Leggings give you a more comfortable fit around your bump.
The fourth trimester and beyond: you've got through labour, your baby is here and you're keen to get moving. You need sports leggings you can count on to boost your confidence and support your post-partum tummy through every movement in comfort.

Bought these after loving the black pregnancy leggings I bought when pregnant. I bought a size smaller so they are a little tight at the moment. Love the material and the pockets can fit soooo much which has been useful when out and about or even moving from upstairs to down. Haven't worn for a workout yet so can't comment re that.
Really comfy. I've practically lived in them since they arrived. The big side pockets are super handy!
