According to a 2017 study on maternity clothing, women gain an average of 25 to 35 pounds throughout pregnancy, which requires garments to expand and stretch for the expectant mother. In order to improve flexibility and comfort during these prime months, leggings are your most reliable bet.

Whether you're in your first or last trimester, maternity leggings can support your belly and make you feel put together when your usual pants are no longer fitting. Plus, just like maternity shoes, pregnancy-designed bottoms are made with breathable, stretchy materials like cotton, polyester and lightweight knit.

From compression leggings to faux leather bottoms, moms-to-be can prioritize comfort without compromising style. Here are some shopper-approved leggings that will make you feel feminine and fit as you get closer to motherhood.
