Cute leggings = a better workout. It’s common core mathematics. Being pregnant is an exciting time, but it also comes with its fair share of challenges. One of those challenges is finding comfortable, stylish clothes that fit your ever-growing bump. Especially when you’re looking for activewear. That’s where maternity leggings come in. Even if you’re a leggings connoisseur when you’re not pregnant, rocking that beautiful belly changes everything—even your favorite, feel-like-they-were-made-for-you pair might feel, dare we say it?, uncomfortable.

While some may argue that leggings aren’t pants, we beg to differ—especially when you’re sporting a baby bump. We’ve rounded up the best maternity leggings on the market, so you can stay comfortable and stylish throughout your pregnancy. From buttery soft fabrics to supportive waistbands, these leggings will make you forget you’re even wearing pants (in the best way possible). Leggings that fit your growing bump (and post-baby bod) while making you look and and feel awesome are always an excellent motivator. Read on for our top picks for supportive and super comfortable maternity leggings.
