What are Pregnancy Leggings?

Pregnancy leggings, also known as maternity leggings, are specially designed to accommodate the changing shape and size of an expectant mum during pregnancy. They are made from comfortable, stretchy fabrics that gently hug the body without constricting the movement of the wearer. 

SRC Pregnancy Leggings are specifically designed to provide support to the pelvis during pregnancy. Featuring Anatomical Support Panels (ASP), they help alleviate the strain and pressure in your body from carrying the baby. This design also allows you to remain active at work for a longer time and move around more easily and comfortably. 

SRC Maternity Leggings come in two designs, such as over-the-bump and under-the-bump styles, each of them offering unique benefits to accommodate different preferences and stages of pregnancy.

Over-the-Bump Maternity Leggings

With a high-rise waistband extending over the belly, these Over-the-Bump pregnancy tights provide full coverage and support to the growing abdomen. Unlike belly bands, SRC Over-the-Bump Pregnancy Leggings offer enhanced support and comfort with ultra-soft, stretchy materials that gently envelop the upper abdominal area. This design ensures unrestricted movement, allowing you to navigate your daily activities with ease and comfort.

Over-the-Bump Maternity Leggings are highly recommended if:

  • you want additional support without applying pressure to your bump,

  • you prefer a snug fit that covers the belly,

  • you seek relief from lower back discomfort

Under-the-Bump Maternity Leggings

Unlike over-the-bump maternity leggings, which have a higher waistband that extends over the belly, under-the-bump leggings offer a lower-rise design. This style accommodates the growing bump without putting pressure on it, making it suitable for various stages of pregnancy. With their anti-chafing fabric and adjustable waistbands, SRC Under-the-Bump Pregnancy Leggings are also suitable for mums with sensitive skin, which helps to avoid irritation caused by friction and heat during warmer weather.

Under-the-Bump Maternity Leggings are highly recommended if:

  • you prefer a lower-rise waistband,

  • you have sensitive skin, or

  • you easily feel hot or reside in warmer environments.

What's The Difference Between Maternity Leggings And Regular Leggings?

The main differences between the two lie in their design and features, including:

1. Fit

Compared to regular leggings with standard waistbands, pregnancy tights have extra stretch and flexibility to accommodate the changing body shape throughout pregnancy. 

2. Support

Maternity compression tights such as the SRC Pregnancy Leggings have specially designed features that support the belly and pelvic area. They also deliver targeted compression that helps alleviate lower back pain, pelvic girdle pain, and other conditions. Regular leggings typically do not have these supportive features.

3. Fabric

Maternity compression leggings often use soft, stretchy fabrics that provide comfort and flexibility while accommodating the growing belly. SRC maternity leggings have uniquely milled, high-quality fabric that maintains its elasticity and shape even after multiple wears and washes. Regular leggings, on the other hand, have varying levels of stretch and thickness, with fabrics made of different materials such as cotton, polyester, nylon, and spandex blends.

When Should You Switch To Maternity Leggings?

It’s recommended to switch to maternity tights once your regular leggings start to feel too tight or uncomfortable around the waist and hips, especially as your bump begins to grow. This can happen as early as the first trimester or later on in the second trimester. Listen to how your body feels and make the switch whenever you need extra support and flexibility. For more personalised advice on transitioning to maternity tights, talk to your healthcare provider.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Are pregnancy leggings worth it?

Yes. Comfort is paramount during pregnancy, and pregnancy leggings excel in providing just that. With their flexibility, durability, and comfort, you don’t have to worry about changing leggings multiple times throughout your pregnancy, no matter how your body changes. Additionally, their supportive features help alleviate muscle soreness, lower back pain, and other discomfort commonly associated with pregnancy.

Which leggings are best during pregnancy?

The best leggings for expectant mums are pregnancy compression tights designed specifically to provide support and comfort throughout pregnancy. Research shows that these maternity compression leggings are effective in alleviating pregnancy-related pain and discomforts, and improving balance, functionality, and mobility.[2]

Can you wear regular leggings while pregnant?

Yes, but remember that they may not offer the same level of comfort and support as maternity leggings. Regular leggings may feel tight or restrictive around the waist and hips as your belly grows, leading to discomfort or the need for constant readjustment. Pay attention to your body’s cues and consult with your doctor to ensure you’re making the right choice for your comfort and well-being.

Is it bad to wear tight leggings over a pregnant belly?

Studies show that wearing tight clothing during pregnancy can have adverse health effects. It can slow down digestion, reduce activity in the trunk muscles, and increase the risk of lumbar problems. Wearing tight leggings may also worsen constipation for mums who commonly experience it.[3]

Is it OK to wear yoga pants while pregnant?

Yoga pants are fine as long as they fit well and provide adequate support. However, as your baby bump continues to grow, yoga pants may feel tight or restrictive, especially in the waistband area. Consider switching to more comfortable leggings specifically designed to accommodate your changing body, especially at the later stages of pregnancy.
