Maternity & Postnatal Active Support Leggings | Illuminate Reflective
Maternity & Postnatal Active Support Leggings | Illuminate Reflective
Exercising outdoors or after dark? Stay seen and safe with these reflective maternity running leggings.
Cut super high to sit over your bump, these versatile leggings feature a funky pattern that reflects lights from cars and bikes to increase your visibility. The sweat-wicking fabric provides light compression – which can help prevent pregnancy varicose veins and back pain – and stays dependably opaque, no matter how much you squat and stretch! Dropped waistband seams mean there are no pesky stitches digging into your bump, and they won't rub a C-section scar either. We’ve also added a deep pocket on each leg that’s perfect for stashing all kinds of essentials.
The best thing about these leggings is they will adapt to your changing body, both pre- and post-natally. You can count on them to support your bump from early pregnancy right up to 40+ weeks, but they'll continue to fit, flatter and support you for as long as you like after your baby is born. If you’re looking to invest in maternity leggings you carry on wearing well into postnatal life, call off the search!
Our Latched active support leggings have been awarded Silver in the Made for Mums 2023 awards.
We're proud to be a GOLD winner in the Best Maternity Fashion Brand category of the Loved By Parents awards 2022.
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.
The distinctive pattern on these maternity leggings is printed with reflective ink, which increases your visibility when you're running or walking outside in low light and after dark.
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 park run to a park picnic! 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.

Love these cycling shorts. They are so comfy. I’d wear them all the time if the weather was warmer! I’ll be buying another pair for sure.
Bought as a gift as they had tried a different brand and not got on well with them. Recipient is 28 weeks pregnant and loves these so much she’s buying another pair. Excellent fit and well priced for a gift.
The bra is not the correct size. I tried on the pink one in small size at the baby and toddle show in Manchester and it fitted fine. As per advise I ordered same size in black but it doesn’t fit.
It flattens my chest furthermore I need to use the spare hooks and use it on last set which wasn’t the case when I tried pink one on.
Please issue a refund for it
These shorts are brilliant, so comfortable and love the style and colour. 100% recommend
Lovely quality, really comfortable and supportive, and easy to feed my little one.
Comfortable, supportive and practical
I really like the design. It covers much of my torso so I don’t feel like I need an extra top over it. The clips at the back mean the racer back position is easy to get and this is tight. Sizing might need adjusting as I did my measurements following the online guide and ordered a small. However, whilst this fitted well around my torso, I had spaces under the arms with the cup. As the bra comes with back extenders, I should have ordered XS to get the right fit for my cup and then I could use the extenders to fit around my torso. I would love to see a navy one of these products available .
Lovely sportsbra suitable for feeding. I like the removable insert. The only thing I would say is the size of the back strap is on the larger side. I measured as recommended and it's fits on the tighter strap not allowing chance to make tighter as elastic stretches. Love it though, thank you
Feels much more secure and supportive than other nursing sports bras I’ve tried, would definitely recommend!
Great fit, true to size, super comfortable, pockets are a godsend. Best shorts I’ve had in ages. I quite often wear them into work under dresses as well as they are supportive without being restrictive. A few more colours eventually would be good.
(FYI they aren’t padded cycling shorts in case it wasn’t obvious but if I’m on the bike I just wear padded cycling knickers!)
Hands down the best pregnancy and post partum leggings.
I have ordered again and again as you can never have enough. My 1st pair only just died and they were over 3 years old. I wear them pretty much 24/7
I ordered these after Latched was recommended to me by a friend. Unfortunately, these leggings were way too long for me. I’m 5’7 and the leggings I bought would have fit the leg length of someone 6ft+. When I tried them on, I had to roll them over about 4 times! Before I was pregnant I was a size 20-22 but with my bump growing I bought the largest size Latched sell (3XL), thinking that I’d need bigger. The leggings fit brilliantly on my tummy and thighs, were very comfortable and great quality. All I can think of is that due to the bigger size, Latched are catering for very tall women too. It’s disappointing because I’ve heard nothing but good things about the brand, but these leggings just aren’t for me and that’s fine.
I bought this for my daughter and was concerned about buying online. The sweatshirt arrived promptly and was really well made. She is very happy with it. Highly recommended.
I was so keen to get back into training after having my daughter but was worried about having the correct bra for both feeding and exercise. I definitely needed support as I wanted to pursue running again but really wasn’t sure how it would work out with logistics of feeding. I was recommended latched by a fellow breastfeeding friend.. what a fabulous recommendation that was! I can honestly say the support the bra offers is incredible. My boobs don’t ache, bounce up or down but at the same time they don’t feel restricted. The bra is true to size and the feeding straps are easy to use: when you have sweaty hands from training! Just don’t forget to do up the catch on the back, luckily my husband spotted it!! Have already recommended to others at my running group.
These are so comfy for my growing bump. Definitely need to buy more pairs!
