There have been some big predictions of a baby boom post the COVID-19 lockdown, due to… there not being much else to do. And, let’s face it, being pregnant can be A Time.
From your hormones upheaving your rationality to the nausea, it’s a lot before you even touch on how uncomfy it is. Then there’s the ordeal of just getting dressed. Active Truth’s maternity tights are answering pregnant women everywhere’s prayers. Activewear for pregnancy.
Championed by literal angel Zoë Foster Blake on Instagram —alongside loads of other preggers influencers and celebs— she said, “… here’s some other preggo clothing I thrash: Active Truth maternity tights – over the bump, with thick, flattering fabric. Bought in first tri and they’re growing happily with me. Nice maternity active wear is impossible to find: why? Come on Lulu/Nike et al – preggos exercise too.”

I didn’t wear overalls last pregnancy and I feel like such a friggen dunce. They’re the best! I live in them! Waistbands can suck a doz! Because A) I always want recommendations and therefore assume everyone else does, and B) maternity attire, generally speaking, sucks, here’s some other preggo clothing I thrash: Active Truth tights – over the bump, with thick, flattering fabric. Bought in first tri and they’re growing happily with me. Nice maternity active wear is impossible to find: why? Come on Lulu/Nike et al – preggos exercise too Bendon crop top – the classic not-super-flattering-but-very-comfy-crop top (I tried the CK one to be cool but it cut in and pissed off me off) and Bonds maternity bras Bras N Things Lucile Bralette because the last thing these tatas need is padding. And all wire-free bras are padded. Why? Bought one in each colour Seed denim (the elastic waist ones but in a size up, they’re a good ankle-skimming length and skinny shape, and also the drop crotch soft denim ones) and also Ripe Maternity denim, the black skinny leg ones Overalls – mine are Hatch x Current Elliot, which I bought online with some other Hatch stuff that I’m yet to wear, in honesty ASOS maternity and ZARA for basic tees and little cheapie fun smock dresses Bassike tees and soft cotton pants Kookai for stretchy tight dresses – cotton for summersies; wool for wintersies – great as a skirt over tights, or with heels HA HA AS IF, on toast etc etc Horrible dressing gown from the fiery depths of hell Bah! That’ll do. Worth noting only a couple of these are dedicated maternity items. Hey, maternity fashion, be better! (You too, wedding shoes. You were AWFUL.)
