The 15 Best Postpartum Leggings, According to 6 Stylish Moms
When I was pregnant, my maternity leggings were on heavy rotation in my daily wardrobe. They were comfy, stretchy, supportive, and a good alternative (that I could actually wear out) to my husband’s cotton briefs (which is all I wanted to live in after work and on the weekends at home). But what I didn’t realize is that after I had my baby, I’d also benefit greatly from a supportive pair of control-top, compression leggings to see me through a time when my body was still changing immensely; when I didn’t want anything to irritate sensitive areas; and when I wanted a pant option—while in between sizes—that were flattering and comfortable (because there was no way I was attempting to put on a pair of jeans).
Most postpartum leggings have high control-top waists and compression features that help smooth bulges and provide support for post-baby bellies. They also tend to be extremely soft and comfortable—perfect for everything from lounging to strolling to napping to healing.
