Mid-rise maternity joggers

These tapered mid-rise maternity joggers from Boob Design are the best for staying comfortable during pregnancy. They feature a nice relaxed fit, are super soft, stretchy, and easy to care for with machine washing.

Very nice maternity pants, which you can also wear afterwards. Recommend going up a size. I am 178 cm tall and usually wear size M, but took L in these pants. Mostly for the sake of leg length.
Stylish to have at home as a soft ice cream but also at work with a cardigan/jacket. Truly the best pants in the world!

Best maternity sweatpants for working out

dk Active is an Australian brand that offers amazing organic cotton rib fabric that is so luxuriously soft, stretchy, and fabulous to wear you’d expect a hefty price tag. You’d be wrong. The Levels pants may be crafted with 98% GOTS organic cotton rib and 2% elastane, and are ethically made in Australia but they’re some of the best priced activewear we’ve ever seen for the quality. Now, these run a little large so grab yours in a size down. Grab two, while you’re at it.

FAQs

What are the benefits of maternity sweatpants?

Maternity sweatpants offer several benefits to pregnant women, including increased comfort, flexibility, and support for their growing bellies. They are also versatile and can be worn during different stages of pregnancy, making them a practical and affordable choice.

What is the best material for maternity sweatpants?

When it comes to maternity sweatpants, you want a material that’s soft, stretchy, and comfortable. Most moms-to-be prefer cotton or spandex because they’re breathable and won’t make you feel like you’re being squeezed in all the wrong places. Plus, they’ll keep you cozy whether you’re lounging on the couch or styling them up for a day out. 

Can you wear regular sweatpants when pregnant?

Absolutely you can wear regular sweatpants when pregnant, but they might not be the most comfortable option towards the third trimester. Your belly will be growing, so the waistband might start to feel tight and uncomfortable after a while. You can still wear the band below the belly but your top will need to be a bit longer unless you’re baring it all RiRi style. Maternity sweatpants have stretchy waistbands and roomy leg openings, so they’ll give you more flexibility and support as your bump gets bigger. 

How can you style maternity sweatpants?

Styling maternity sweatpants is all about being comfortable and practical, whether you’re doing work at home or heading to the grocery store. You can pair them with a cozy sweatshirt and sneakers for a casual work-from-home look, or dress them up with a cute top and some boots for running errands.
