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 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.

Fantastic communication when asking about stock and sizes.
Leggings themselves are brilliant quality and I'm so happy that I've found maternity leggings relevant to sport. Xx
So happy with these leggings, they are really comfortable (I pretty much live in them)!
Best I've tried and I've tried a few brands now with this being baby no5. Gives me fantastic support, really helps to hold tummy in nice and secure and helps my back ache by giving such strong support. Also helps my achy legs by being a compressed fit. Really love them. Lovely sheen to the leggings too so can be worn as sports type or with a dressy top. Would recommend a million times over.
Thought these leggings were very supportive when out walking the dog. I have suffered from pelvic gurdle pain throughout pregnancy and the compression in these leggings compared to my usual gym leggings is second to none. If you are after leggings that provide support during pregnancy I would recommended. Reason for three star review is I found the leggings not very flattering around the front area- quite baggy (I bought a small) and I didn’t like wearing them without a long top as a result.
I would highly recommend it, it's soft and comfortable, makes your body looks perfect, I've tried it after giving birth (even I had C section) it was so gentle, made me feel great, thank you soooo much, will bay more ♥️
