carlybartle asked: Hi Jaclyn! I'm 5 months pregnant and on the hunt for the perfect maternity leggings.... I would love to find a pair that fit/feel just like the Zella live-in leggings (recommended by you which I absolutely love). I'm still wearing my Zella leggings but starting to get the "double stomach" look so I need a maternity pair with a full panel to take care of that. I ordered a pair from loft but they weren't as tight fitting as Zella, loose around knees and ankles (which I hate). :) Thank you!!!!!
My favorite maternity leggings were actually from the now-defunct Forever 21 maternity line. They were like $9 or something. Amazing.
But, my second and third favorite pairs—from Liz Lange for Target and Old Navy—are still available! Target’s are $16.99. I preferred a demi-panel instead of a full panel. Old Navy’s low-rise leggings worked great for me too (only $7 right now!). If you prefer a full panel pair, they are just $9. I also had a pair I liked fit-wise from H&M (similar to these from H&M, $12.95) but didn’t wear them often because the full panel drove me nuts.
If you want a more activewear-style pair, Athleta has their Maternity Metro Legging for $79.
