Buying Guide For Maternity Leggings
Choose elastic bands over drawstrings because they are self-adjusting and do not put too much pressure on your belly. Drawstrings also need to be adjusted constantly.
Look for soft-knit cotton/lycra leggings with a little bit of spandex.
Figure out what style of leggings are the most comfortable for you – under the belly band, over the top mesh panel, or something that sits just on the belly button.
Buy tops or dresses that go well with your leggings.
Select brands that can be used throughout your pregnancy (and even after it!).
