9 Workout Brands That Pregnant Women Love

Fun fact: You don’t have to stop working out just because you’re pregnant. (In fact, it can help make the birthing process easier.) And while you might be able to get away with wearing the workout clothes you already own through your first trimester and into your second, you might feel more comfortable in pieces specifically designed for you and your bump as your baby continues to grow. Here are nine maternity brands, all tested and approved by the moms of PureWow.

A Pea in the Pod

A Pea In The Pod

Easy to wear, high-quality pieces are key to A Pea in the Pod’s athleticwear collection. We particularly love the selection of loose, draped tops, which are a refreshing departure from the tight bump-displaying options we typically see.

gap maternity nursing sports bra


The most important item to invest in if you plan to work out while pregnant: a supportive sports bra. Gap has you covered. Oh, and it even has nursing sports bras, so you can continue to wear these comfy styles long after you’ve given birth—even if you’re not ready to hit the gym just yet.

motherhood maternity workout jacket
Motherhood Maternity

Motherhood Maternity

This is one of our fave spots to score cute athleisure options we can wear to the gym and on yet another run to Buy Buy Baby (seriously, how much more can a baby need?!). Another reason we love Motherhood Maternity? It has a selection of plus styles, as well, in sizes 1x to 3x.

beyond yoga maternity workout leggings
Beyond Yoga

Beyond Yoga

Just because you’re pregnant doesn’t mean you have to give up on wearing bright colors or funky patterns. Beyond Yoga has a ton of fun legging and top options that don’t feel boring or basic at all (we see you, heathered teal and lace-trim).

Beyond Yoga maternity empire waisted capri leggings ($99)

playing9 maternity tennis dress


Playing9 is pretty much the only brand we could find that offers tennis and golf apparel specifically for expecting mothers. Luckily, the designs are chic, sleek and just what we want when hitting the courts or the driving range.

ingrid and isabel maternity workout top
Ingrid & Isabel

Ingrid & Isabel

A definite PureWow mom favorite, Ingrid & Isabel offers styles that accommodate your changing body. For instance, the cross-front feature of this sweat-wicking workout top can stretch to drape over a growing belly, and once your baby has arrived, this functional style will make it super easy to breastfeed or pump.

old navy maternity workout leggings
Old Navy

Old Navy

Old Navy (yet another PureWow go-to) has a great range of maternity options, particularly when it comes to bottoms. Pick your preferred silhouette: loose cotton pants, tight capris or breezy shorts.

Old Navy maternity high-rise cropped leggings ($33)

asos 4505 maternity one piece swimsuit

Asos 4505

Did you know this uber-popular fast-fashion brand also carries a ton of adorable and chic pieces for expecting moms? That includes yoga-ready leggings, sweat-wicking tanks and even a sleek one-piece, so you don’t have to wear a bikini to get those morning laps in.

mia tango maternity workout clothes
Mia Tango

Mia Tango

Real talk: Maternity clothing is expensive. Especially when you’re really only going to wear those pieces for four or five months. This is doubly true for maternity workout wear, which is why Mia Tango’s pre-loved option is such a game changer. You can save between 40 and 60 percent if you buy a pre-owned piece rather than brand new. But don’t stress! Every item has been carefully inspected to ensure it’s in pristine condition and has been owned by only one prior mama.
