The Maternity Legging
The product: Girlfriend Collective Maternity Leggings ($88)
The fit: Billed as the most comfortable maternity legging ever, expectations for these were high. They felt lightweight and smooth as they glided right on. These are definitely the kind of leggings you can wear all day. At 34 weeks pregnant, that's nothing to scoff at!
The function: I have worn these leggings for two workouts so far: prenatal yoga and (at-home) spin. These are two wildly different workouts, and the leggings were perfect for both. I was thrilled to notice that the belly band never budged, no matter how I moved. I usually result to folding down most maternity leggings because the belly band either starts to dig into my skin or fall down, but these stayed comfortably in place throughout both workouts.
The verdict: I love these leggings and wish I had bought them earlier in my pregnancy to salvage my now-loose regular activewear. They're at the upper end of what I would spend for maternity leggings, but are incredibly functional for daily wear and a variety of workouts. I'll be living in them both now and for months after delivery, so from a cost-per-wear standpoint, these definitely hold up.
