My biggest mistake with my first pregnancy is that I did not invest in some good, comfortable, and yet stylish black maternity leggings.
By my second pregnancy, however, I learned my lesson and was determined to find the right fit. You realize quickly how fast your body can change, so having some leggings ready to go will give you a little boost of confidence—and you can dress them up or down, depending on your mood. There’s no law that says you can’t do leggings every day. I sure did.
I always found that when going through pregnancy, it makes sense to dress in what makes you comfortable. You know how uncomfortable you are about to get, so why make it worse by not choosing the best maternity wear? Just because you choose comfort doesn’t mean you can’t look put-together.
I’ll give you my picks for the best maternity leggings, so you too can experience some comfort while you adjust to the future demands of motherhood.
