Anita Maternity Rongui Swimsuit
High Support Pregnancy Exercise TopThis is a great maternity top from FittaMama. The stylish top provides maximum support during high impact activities - the snug fit holds you securely, like a bra for your baby bump so you can enjoy your pregnancy workout or continue to run during pregnancy.
The unique support panel spreads the weight of your developing bump to your back and shoulders, making exercise more comfortable and improving posture whilst the built-in bra support gives extra comfort and confidence. Super-supportive, this top helps alleviate pregnancy backache, SPD and other pelvic pain too!
We did find that this top probably wouldn't be suitable for those with really large bust sizes as it is cut quite low and the bust area is not as generous as some women would need, but for those smaller than a D cup, it's perfect!
Available in Jet Black, Deep Raspberry and Dove Grey
Maternity Exercise LeggingsWe really love these high-stretch maternity leggings from FittaMama, with a supportive roll-up, roll-under waistband, you can wear them so that the waist panel holds your bump and lower back where it feels best for you. They are ideal for any pregnancy exercise, yoga, running, cycling or just for every day comfort.
These flattering maternity leggings fit well throughout your pregnancy, stretch when you stretch (without falling down!) and look good after you’ve had your baby too. It's just worth mentioning that they do come up quite tight so you may want to choose a size up from your usual size, they are also quite long, so would fit women even up to 6 foot.
They are also perfect after a C-Section, offering comfortable support with nothing to irritate your tender tummy!
Cadenshae Ultimate Bra - StripeIt has been almost impossible for us to find a sports bra specifically for pregnancy or nursing, that is until we came across this fantastic brand from New Zealand.
This bra is an absolute game-changer for active breastfeeding mums. This incredible high impact nursing sports bra will be your one go-to bra for any type of workout or activity. Built specifically for mums with bigger busts who want to keep exercising, the Ultimate Nursing Sports Bra offers ultimate support and comfort, combined with easy access for breastfeeding.
The bra can be used throughout your pregnancy and then for nursing, thanks to the extra hook and eye panel which allows you to extend the back size as your grow. It has extra wide straps for comfort, moulded cups, it can even convert to a racerback style.
Cadenshae also do nursing sports bras for smaller bust sizes, so no matter what size you are you will find a perfect nursing sports bra from this brand.
Cadenshae Loose Fit Tank - Lush BerryWe really liked this breastfeeding workout top from Cadenshae, it really does make breastfeeding easier than ever.
Perfect for mums who want to stay active after pregnancy, this gorgeous loose-fit nursing tank top is so easy to wear, and easy to breastfeed in. The dual layer design features a built-in crop top which provides extra support while you work out. And the loose, breathable mesh outer layer helps keep you cool during exercise.
It's worth mentioning the tank top is designed to be worn with an undergarment such as their nursing sports bras as the top has an opening in the front so you will need a bra on underneath to stop the girls from poking through. Teamed with a breastfeeding sports bras you can simply push the mesh layer aside for quick and easy feeding access.
The Active Kit - Pregnancy Yoga & SportswearWe absolutely love this Pregnancy Yoga & Sportswear Active Kit from Seraphine!
The stylish kit comes with 4 essentials; a maternity tank top, maternity workout pants, maternity & nursing sports bra, a matching headband and even comes in a cute drawstring gym bag. Everything you need for keeping fit and looking fabulous through pregnancy & beyond. It's a must-have for jogging, gym trips, pregnancy yoga & more!
The Tank Top is super soft, secure and stylish. It is ruched at the sides, so has plenty of room to accommodate a growing bump whilst offering great coverage and a flexible fit throughout pregnancy and beyond.
The ¾ length maternity leggings are perfect for wearing at the gym or as pregnancy yoga pants. They have a high waisted seamless waistband which can be worn over or under the bump and they are nice and stretchy so they remain super comfortable however large your bump gets. You will find you want to live in these pants both in and out of the gym!
The Sports Bra offers a comfy seamless fit and easy access for nursing, it has adjustable straps to provide a flexible fit and can be clipped into a racerback style for added support.
Our only complaint about this kit is the fact that it comes in 3 standard sizes, small, medium and large. It would be nice to be able to pick and choose the sizes for each piece as not all women are the same size on their top as they are on their bottom, but for those who are this kit certainly offers good value for money and will provide everything you need!
Anita Maternity Rongui SwimsuitFinding a good fitting swimsuit when pregnant sounds easy right? Well after trying countless swimsuits through various stages of pregnancy we realised nobody seemed to have got it right, all maternity swimsuits seem to come in standard sizes, small, medium or large, or 10, 12, 14, 16 etc, but this doesn't work at the best of times, let alone when your stomach and boobs might be growing at entirely different rates.
That's why we fell in love with this classic black swimsuit from Anita. The stylish swimsuit is perfect for doing laps in the pool or lounging on a beach and the best part is you can choose the bust size, so whether you are a 30G or a 38C you can choose a size that will fit you perfectly.
