Maternity Staples: Cute Activewear Styles To Wear While Pregnant

Every mother-to-be has a different body type, but we all want to feel good and comfortable in what we're wearing - especially when it comes to maternity activewear for your growing bump. 


If it's supportive, breathable and stylish - count me in. 


Whether you need something to wear to the gym or something cosy for lounging at home, these are comfortable must-have styles to add to your pregnancy wardrobe. The good news, not everything on this list is maternity, so you can feel good about investing in high-quality pieces that you can stay active in well beyond your pregnancy. 


Wondering what to wear while pregnant? Here's a look at some of the staples we're loving right now. 


Maternity Must-Haves 

When you find something that works, there's nothing wrong with wearing it on repeat. The Lunar Maternity Full Length Tight is my go-to workout pant and I wish I would have bought these for my first pregnancy. These tights are soft, supportive and have a good stretch, which is ideal for the third trimester. They also have side pockets - perfect for carrying keys, cards or a small toy for my toddler. 


When it comes to what to wear while pregnant, you can't compromise on comfort. The Chloe Maternity Crop is comfy for everyday wear during pregnancy and nursing. It doesn't have padding but feels really supportive. It also has front clips for breastfeeding.


The Charlie Pant and Daydream Crop is the most comfortable set you can wear for all three trimesters and beyond. I'm packing it in my hospital bag. It's made from Recycled Ribbed fabric and feels super soft. The Crop offers low-impact support, and the straps won't dig into your body. The pants have a drawstring so they won't slide down. They're great for lounging, going on walks or running errands. You'll want to wear these pieces all day, every day. 


If you feel like throwing something on that's ultra-soft and comfy, the Millie Cotton Short is a great option. It's made from 100% Organic Cotton, and you can customize the fit as your belly grows. For a relaxed fit, pair it with the Side Swipe tee. This is a versatile combo that you can wear postpartum too. 


For the ultimate workout wardrobe essential for winter pregnancies, you can't go wrong with a dk active jumper. They're ethically made in Brisbane, super soft and ultra cosy. The Orion Top is a great layering piece for those cool mornings and is made from 100% GOTS Organic Cotton Fleece.
