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!
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 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.

I'm so pleased to have a pair of these leggings, they are so comfortable over my bump, supportive but they don't dig in, they also stay up all day with no sagging. I am very confident these will help me in my postpartum journey especially having c sections its difficult to find leggings that are comfortable. Definitely recommend these leggings 100%
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!
