We believe maternity activewear should still be cute — and these 10 brands agree

Thankfully maternity wear has come a long way and once your bump starts showing, you don’t have to ditch the cute looks. Whether you plan on staying active throughout your pregnancy or just love athleisure, maternity workout clothes are designed to give you the total support and comfort you’ve been looking for, while still looking great. We have rounded up 10 of our favorite maternity activewear brands so you can look and feel your best.

BLANQI

BLANQI is a clothing brand specifically designed for expecting mothers, so all of their products will properly fit you. They offer clothing for four different stages: maternity, nursing, postpartum, and motherhood. 

We absolutely love their Maternity Belly Support Crop Leggings. These leggings are high waisted to cover your baby bump, while also completely supporting it. Fortunately the fabric is moisture wicking, soft, and designed with flat seams.

Old Navy 

Old Navy is known for their high quality, but lower cost selection of activewear. While they have clothing for the whole family, Old Navy has a complete maternity department, with a whole section dedicated to maternity. 

Stay on trend with their 8 inch Maternity Full Panel Elevate Powersoft Biker Shorts. With light compression, your bump will be supported and its four way stretch design ensures your full range of mobility. Luckily the shorts are made with quick drying and moisture wicking material to get you through the sweatier moments.

Bao Bei Maternity 

Bao Bei is another brand geared towards expecting mothers. You can choose items from their four different stages, like their nursing bralettes or postpartum underwear.

One of the bestsellers and our personal favorites is their ProBump Pregnancy Belly Support Band. This comfortable band supports your abdominals (great for diastasis recti) and bump, while alleviating any back pain. Wear the band through your next workout or whenever you need some extra support. Thankfully you can wear it through all three trimesters.

LuLuLemon

LuluLemon is a popular favorite when it comes to activewear. They provide men and women a wide range of athletic clothing, from trendy jackets to swim suits to their cult favorite leggings. 

While these leggings aren’t specifically designed for maternity activewear, they are a favorite among expecting women. The Align Legging is crafted from a super soft nylon and elastane blend, and has a high waist design. The pair of leggings come in three lengths and 20 designs, so every mama-to-be will find just what they’re looking for.

Kindred Bravely

“Designed by moms for moms” means you can’t go wrong with any of the pieces from Kindred Bravely. All of their clothes are designed to be functional, comfortable, and totally chic.

One of our favorites is the Sublime Nursing Sports Bra because you can easily wear this piece through pregnancy into the nursing stages. While it provides moderate support, this sports bra is double layered with removable padding, and has pull down clips so you can effortlessly feed your newborn.

This brand is geared towards designing comfortable clothing for women of all sizes and stages of life to make women everywhere feel their best. We love that their clothes are crafted in California, while they do their best to achieve clean production.
