Gym Fashion: The Maternity Active Wear Edit

Maternity Fitness Wear
Whether its a pre-natal yoga class or an Aquanatal session you're thinking of going to, you'll need comfortable maternity active kit to get you through the workout! 

It's surprisingly difficult to find brightly coloured, supportive and affordable maternity sportswear and because of this it can be tempting to just simply buy larger sizes in regular workout gear. I would advise against this personally, as the clothing will not offer the same level of support for your growing bump. Below I've put together a maternity edit of my favourite pieces, along with the details of where you can buy them from and how much they cost.  

A word on sports bras: I would highly recommend getting yourself professionally measured and fitted for maternity bras early-mid pregnancy (or as soon as your regular bras begin to feel tight!) and once again at the 36-38 week mark. It would be also worthwhile getting measured again shortly after birth, once your milk comes in as this can push your size up by at least two cups! Using the sizes your told in these fitting sessions, I would then look for regular sports bras, but make sure it's without the underwiring.
