Maternity & Postnatal Active Support Leggings | Black
Designed to adapt and flex with your changing body, these high-waisted gym leggings will take you from the earliest stages of your pregnancy right through to postnatal life – you’ll get years of wear out of them!
When you’re pregnant, it can be tempting to try and ‘size up’ in basic leggings and hope they’ll see you through. There are many reasons why this is unlikely to be comfortable or cost-effective for anyone (check out our founder Natalie’s blog for the low-down), but if you’re an active mum-to-be, it’s even less likely to be the answer. The last thing you want during a workout or class is annoying seams, a saggy crotch or the dreaded see-through fabric!
Our specially designed pregnancy sports leggings are cut from squat-proof, sweat-wicking fabric that hugs your bump without ever feeling restrictive – even at 40+ weeks! Light compression gives extra support, helping to ease back pain and combat varicose veins, while the super-high waistband has dropped seams with no pesky stitches to dig into your belly.
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 pregnancy back and hip pain, reduce leg swelling and prevent varicose veins.
Perfect for postpartum life
You can wear these maternity gym leggings for as long as you like after your baby is born – in fact, they'll probably become your go-to 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.

Retuned this item as they felt quite tight generally but especially tight around the bump even though I chose a size up. They weren’t the comfortable everyday item I was hoping for. Returns not the easiest as you need to pay for postage yourself and there’s no process for letting the company know you are returning the product, two weeks later I have still not have acknowledgement that the package has been received.
The active support leggings are so soft and comfortable; the best maternity leggings I’ve ever worn. The sizing was just right, and I’m really impressed with the quality and support. The pockets are great too.
Used these after birth, they were comfortable on my scar and tidy to go about in. Wouldn’t be without them.
Such a great, comfortable and reliable product. So practical for post natal life too with the amazing pockets
Unbelievably comfy best support I’ve found in leggins for my bump
