Top 5 Best Maternity Leggings | 2017 Reviews

Pregnancy may be the greatest thing to happen to any woman but it is also one of the most discomforting one too. We really feel you when your legs start to ache, your back feels like it's broken, you always need to go pee every 20 minutes, and sleeping is a major bust. It comes with the glory of being a mom-to-be, but it doesn't have to be all discomfort from there.

There are so many things now that help pregnant women alleviate the discomfort and go through our pregnancy in a breeze. But how about clothing? We often rely on our husband's shorts for the time being or just end up wearing baggy oversized shirts and dresses for the comfort of it. And there's practically nothing we can do about it. But hey, there are maternity leggings; the best fashion statement ever invented for pregnant women.

We are all for maternity leggings. They are super comfy and they grow with your baby bump. They can also go with anything you wear from tunics to tank tops, from sneakers to heels, from oversized shirts to cardigans, and much more! They are a real mom-to-be best friend.

Though maternity leggings are comfortable, you still have to choose the right one. So, we took the liberty of choosing great maternity leggings for you. We have considered comfort factors like the material, the fit, the color, and much more!

That way, you won't have to go through the mayhem of choosing the right pair of clothing for you. You need all the time to do other stuff than sitting around the whole day just shopping for one pair of leggings, right?

It takes about an extra minute or two or probably 30 for pregnant women to get off the bed. We get in this kind of rut that makes us feel lazy in doing practically anything. Still, we must! If you want to have an easy pregancy life, be active. If you want to give birth the natural, easy way, be active.

If you want shorter labor pains, be active. This is how many women get back into their pre-pregnancy size quickly, and we also suggest you do the same. Some moms-to-be are already active and in order to be active even in your third trimester, you need the proper gear and what best to have than the Ingrid & Isabel Active Leggings.

This is really one of the best leggings for pregnant women because this really does the trick in keeping you comfortable while running or jogging or doing yoga, Kegel exercises, other exercises for pregnant women or just simply relaxing at home.

These leggings are very comfortable and stretchy but other than that, they don't rub horribly against the legs which most leggings would. When this happens, we get really irritated and super itchy reddish skin in our inner thighs. This is a horrible feeling to add to the already uncomfortable stage of pregnancy; feeling itchy in a pair of leggings is unacceptable.

We love these performance pregnancy leggings so much because they are anti-microbial. That's neat since we are at our vulnerable stage especially in our final trimester of pregnancy. The Ingrid & Isabel Maternity Leggings are very breathable. It also features a moisture wicking material that prevents you from sweating which can add to irritation and also becomes a breeding ground for bacteria. We love how lightweight this is too. And that is why this makes a perfect leggings for a very active mom-to-be like you.

We love its tightness, by the way. This is very comfortable and we get what we need from this pair of leggings for pregnant women. It also acts like a pair of compression pants that help support our entire limbs. It promotes great blood circulation on the legs so that we don't end up having our feet swell up. The crossover panel at the back is also a great additive. It gives good support to your growing belly and it somehow adds to a greater and better comfort.

These reasons gave us the unanimous decision to put the Ingrid & Isabel Maternity Leggings on top of our list for the best maternity leggings!

One of the things Moms-to-be need to do on late pregnancy is to monitor their blood pressure. Not just for late pregnancies but all moms in general. Hypertension or Hypo-tension poses risks for expecting moms and their babies. If you are one who has the constant worry of knowing about your blood pressure, you might as well get this great compression maternity leggings and probably a good blood pressure monitor to check it regularly. This is by far the best leggings that do great compression on our legs.

Mild compression is helpful in promoting proper blood circulation throughout our legs. A lot of mommies out there suffer from swelling of the legs and feet due to poor blood circulation on the lower limbs. This often happens in the final trimester of pregnancy.

Whenever our leg swells, we get grumpy and it gets extremely frustrating to move around. It is also particularly tiring to get our stuff done with swelling feet. And that is one thing that we really love about this pair of leggings for pregnant women. It not only helps in reducing the swelling, it also prevents it from reoccurring.

Aside from providing great compression, it also adds great back and belly support. It has a built-in support band that helps your lower back in adding extra power to carry your growing belly. Furthermore, the belly fit adds a gentle lift to lessen the burden of carrying your belly. The back support is great because it has an extra lining of comfort and it is really effective in preventing this really horrible lower back aches.

This is surely one of the best over belly maternity leggings and our second pick for the best maternity leggings overall.

Pregnancy leggings are great when it comes to both home wear and outdoor wear. Whether you are out on a trip, a dinner, days out or just stay indoors, you'll love wearing leggings. They add comfort and style as well. That way, you don't have to sacrifice looking good just because you are pregnant. One of the things we love about these leggings is that they are cheap and they look great especially if you match it with the perfect Maternity coat.

You'll never find another maternity leggings that is as comfortable as this. With 95% cotton, you are guaranteed that it is very comfortable and absolutely breathable. This legging is a great everyday wear. It is very soft and also very easy to move around in. We love that it is lightweight and breezy and it doesn't feel too hot for leggings either. Although leggings are made for a colder weather, the sheer comfort and breathability of it make it an okay pair of leggings for summer.

Anyway, it is still an over the belly maternity leggings but it is kept in place with a non-constricting waistband. The stretch around the belly is comfortable and it doesn't feel too constricting either. One of the best reasons why we think that this is an awesome over the belly pregnancy leggings is that it is really cheap!

As compared to our top contender which is about 4 times more expensive, the Evfalia maternity leggings are at most just a cent under $15. We love that you can buy so many of these and have it as a daily wear. It also comes in different colors and designs making it a great companion for dresses and long tops.

There are issues that we noticed with this maternity leggings. Because the material has very low Spandex content, the material stretches. Over time when your belly grows, the leggings do grow with it but it doesn't go back to its original state. It may be great for comfort but it is pretty much a bust when using it after you give birth.

We do love that it is cheap and easily replaceable than other leggings so we already kind of expected the downside of a much cheaper pair of maternity leggings. However, we reap much more than comfort with this leggings for pregnant women and that is why we chose this as our third best maternity leggings.

Motherhood Secret Fit Belly Maternity Leggings

When you're pregnant, you have a lot of concerns to deal with like health and over-all wellness of your growing child. It's a reality that some moms happen to gain a lot of weight during pregnancy. And it's definitely a normal thing, so don't blame your prenatal vitamins for all that weight gain. It's just natural for you to weigh in a lot of extra pounds but you still need to be careful.

Anyway, with weight gain, you also level up on your clothes' sizes. You get a few extra inches on your thighs and legs. Most maternity leggings concern themselves about accommodating a growing belly but somehow forget that legs also grow along with a developing baby bump. And for that reason, we think that Motherhood Secret Fit Belly Maternity Leggings is the best pregnancy leggings for all sizes.

Some moms-to-be complain about the loose ankles but for us, it is quite a benefit. Our legs do expand during pregnancy and the loose ankles accommodates the times when our legs swell up and it also accommodates the fact that our legs do get bigger—not applicable to all pregnant women though—as we go through our pregnancy. Other than being great for plus size women or women with relatively wider legs, this is also a great stylish fit for slim women.

So whether you have thin legs or you're relatively plus size, you won't have a problem at all. You'll feel the same softness and comfort other mothers feel with this pregnancy leggings. In fact, the reason why we love it so much is its softness. It feels so light on the legs that it's great to snug and lounge around with it.

It is also a great wear for active moms-to-be too. So if you do go for your daily exercise, this will be a great pair of leggings to use. Although it is kind of thin and wearing bright underwear underneath can somehow show, it's still a pretty decent maternity leggings. Besides, there's no long topper that can't solve this problem. Just slip on a cardigan or simply wear a matching color underwear underneath and you'll never even think that it can be a bit see through. And that's why this is our fourth pick for the best maternity leggings.
