Since the belly officially “popped”, I have been on the search for workout pants that don’t cut into my middle causing unflattering and uncomfortable lines around my belly. I purchased a pair of maternity capri’s from Target a few weeks back, and they were okay. Something that would last me throughout my pregnancy.
For Two Fitness sent me the Ultimate Maternity Micro Plush Fitness Pant to try out. Since I am in LOVE with their tank tops, I had high hopes that these pants would be just as amazing.
What I love most about these pants is that they can be worn 1 of 3 ways: Above the belly, below the belly , and mid-rise.
I’ve worn the pants now to various barre classes and out for walks with Madelyn. I love the way these pants fit and they’re perfect for barre. One because the studio is air conditioned so I never felt too warm in these pants. And secondly, the flare leg on the pants is flattering but yet they don’t get in the way too much during seat and thigh work. I have a few other flare-leg workout pants that get caught in the way of each other during certain workout moves.
As far as outdoor activities go, I will probably be living in these pants come fall. So far, we’re having a decent summer and with being pregnant I prefer shorts and tank tops for all outside workouts. Even though the pants breath pretty well, they are still fairly thick.
What I also like about these pants is that they can be worn even after pregnancy. The active capris I purchased from Target are cut to fit a pregnant body so they will fit differently after the baby is born. These can (and will) be worn after baby #2 arrives. That’s always I plus I look for when purchasing maternity clothes.
Overall I think these pants are great for air conditioned studios and cooler weather temps and I would definitely recommend them to any mama to be looking for good, quality workout gear to last her through pregnancy and beyond.
Pregnant mamas out there, what is your favorite, go-to piece of work out gear? Besides having properly fitted pants, I’ve been carrying around my hand held water bottle!
