When you're rocking a large baby bump the last thing you also want to be doing is pulling up your saggy pants every couple of minutes. And yet far too many pairs of maternity leggings slip and slide off, causing that all-too-familiar mom tug. (You know the one, where you grab the front of your pants by two hands and yank up in a move similar to a cowgirl throwing a saddle on a horse? Not a good look.) Luckily, there are some clothing designers who get pregnancy pants right. There really are maternity leggings that won't fall down out there, and we found them.
The key to finding the very best leggings, of course, is not relying on shopping algorithms but rather look to other moms’ opinions, so we combed through product reviews to find maternity leggings that got four stars and resounding votes of confidence from actual shoppers. Leggings that real women said they bought multiples of because they were just so great. (Because let’s be real, you’re going to be living in these for the next several months.) Seems like it wouldn’t be a difficult thing to make stretchy, comfortable pants that can grow with a women’s swelling belly, but, come to find out, it’s harder than we thought. As the reviews suggest, the only people who can really tell you the very best leggings on the market are the ones wearing them. Makes sense. Mama knows best, right?
