I love good deals, and I love working out on the reg especially when I’m pregnant. I am convinced that I’m genuinely addicted to the endorphin release — which is a good thing to crave when you can’t reach for a glass of wine and simultaneously feel like a whale (womp). Owning it — my complaining is at a lifetime high these days. I feel/sound/am so bratty and ungrateful even typing that, but I can’t pretend it’s not the truth. I’ve apologized in advance to my husband and sister for making their ears bleed everyday for the next 9ish weeks.
Anyway! Back to the good stuff. I’ve searched high and low and gathered your suggestions on the best affordable maternity workout leggings. I don’t want to drop $80+ on a pair of leggings that I’m only going to wear during a short season of life. My two main must haves were affordability and thickness. Ain’t no mama got time for the cheap sheer stuff.
Today I’ve got you covered with my three current favorites that I’m wearing on repeat. I’ve rated them good, better, and best (and explained why) for each pair…
While you can’t beat the price and the fact that they come in SIX different color/pattern options, I rated these the “good” pair because the full panel has a thin elastic band at the top. None of my other full panel maternity pants have another little band at the top, so I quickly noticed it because it’s less comfortable than a full panel sans little band. I still wear these though because of their compression fit and thick fabric (which is always a must in my book)! Even though they’re “go-dry” the sheen is matted.
I LOVE THESE and so glad I scored them on the cheap a few weeks ago before they sell out. (Eep! They’re almost gone!) These are an under belly fit. They definitely fit the bill for most bang for your buck, I just rated them “better” instead of best because I prefer full panel on a third trimester belly — I find myself pulling these up every so often. But for that price…whatever!!! I LOVE the feel of these. They are so soft, expensive feeling, and shinier than the previous pair. In love.
These are easily the best and the only ones I plan to order another pair of. Their full panel fit is the comfiest, stays put, and the fabric is as soft as velvet. Like, I want to take these in my hospital bag and wear ’em post party too. They’re SO SO SO SO GOOD. I literally made my mom feel them when they arrived because I was so impressed! I love their shiny sheen and could not rave about them more. A lot of you mamas told me to check these out when I picked your brains on InstaStory, and I’m so glad y’all knew your stuff! THANK YOU! Okay, bye, heading to put another pair in my cart right now.
