It’s a double edged sword staying fit while you’re pregnant; I’ve had no morning sickness or pregnancy related ailments to slow me down so continuing with exercising was pretty seamless, but as the kids grow I am finding it hard to find workout gear that fits me and the bump!
The team at 2XU, who I’ve worked with before, reached out to have me try their Active Maternity Wear while I travelled to the Maldives and kept fit during my baby moon at the Four Seasons at Kuda Huraa (more on that next week!). 2XU compression tights have always been a staple in my gym bag for training, recovery and travel so to transition into their prenatal tights was an absolute dream, especially since they’re made to support the bump and have you feeling confident wherever you’re working out.
There is a huge gap in the market for reliable, comfortable and efficient compression garments for pregnant and postnatal women looking for some support to help alleviate the various musculoskeletal issues that occur during this period.

These tights are recommended for use beginning in the middle of the 2nd trimester, and as the sizing is different for everyone, and the team at Sport In Life had me measured up and ready to go in no time. They do aid in supporting your midline as they go over the bump, without putting any added pressure on your stomach and don’t slip down, either! They allow for ease of movement and blood flow and are a godsend at reducing tiredness and swelling in your legs feet, something that has come in with a vengeance these last few weeks!
“I wear them every day! Once my belly finally popped, I bought a few maternity things and workout clothes, but nothing is as comfortable as these Prenatal Active 2XU tights!
