When you're exercising for two people, finding the right activewear is critical because it provides superior comfort. After all, you don't want to be stuck with ill-fitting attire when you're battling your mom-to-be's less glamorous side. That being said, your body is constantly evolving during these nine months, so keeping up with your changes can be a challenge.

To cope with the ups and downs of pregnancy, it's best to buy clothes that will grow with you so you can focus on staying stress-free and comfortable. At YOYOUNG, we are proud to offer a range of maternity activewear that allows women to enjoy the freedom of movement. YOYOUNG's cute, affordable maternity workout clothes will help you glow from the inside out.

Maternity clothing buying tips

Starting a new life can take a toll on your physical health, so your maternity workout clothes should have comfort-enhancing features. Maternity workout clothes should be supportive, flexible, and absorbent.

Plus, the breathability, compression, and extra stretch will go a long way to keep you and your tummy happy throughout your pregnancy.

Maternity sportswear often also has functional features, such as bra flaps that facilitate breastfeeding.

Maternity activewear size tips

It can be difficult (sometimes even impossible) to figure out how your baby bump will grow, making it difficult to determine maternal size.

If you are ordering online, please order in several different sizes to ensure the best fit. If you're shopping in-store, try on clothes as much as possible. In some cases, you can also invest in non-maternity workout clothes, but just go up in size. Of course, this won't be for everyone, but you might be surprised to learn that your favorite sportswear style can accommodate your bump.

Below, we've rounded up some of our top picks for your maternity workout clothes.

High waist leggings

As your belly gets bigger, your favorite jeans may stop fitting at some point. When that happens, ditch those jeans for a while and embrace the comfort, stretch, and freedom of leggings.

Leggings are a great option not only for working out but also for everyday wear. Plus, the leggings' elastic material flexes easily to fit your midsection and keep you secure as you grow.

When you're browsing leggings, choose materials that allow airflow and perspiration so you can stay cool if you tend to generate extra heat.

Our favorite styles of maternity leggings, especially high-waisted leggings. These versatile pants rank first in style, function, and support.

That being said, it's important to understand that the support and lift provided by high-waisted leggings shouldn't replace your core work during pregnancy. Abdominal exercises can reduce any back pain that occurs during pregnancy -- a common problem due to the extra weight that comes with a baby's bump. Excellent core strength also helps prepare for labor.

Compression shorts

When leggings get too hot, it's time to switch to gym shorts. Shorts will help keep you extra cool and comfortable during more intense workouts or higher temperatures.

Cycling shorts with compression can also help relieve any pregnancy discomfort and improve blood flow when you exercise, sit or stand.

Sports bra

Your breasts grow as your body prepares to bring new life into the world. Choosing the right maternity sports bra can give you the coverage and support you need as the process happens.

While you may prefer a tight, extra-fitting fit over your regular sports bra, it's best to opt for a slightly looser bra when you're pregnant. You don't want your movement to be overly restricted, and you definitely don't want to feel any pain from a bra that's too tight. It's a good rule of thumb to buy a sports bra a size or two larger than your normal size.

Sportswear top

While we love maternity clothes with crop tops, you may not always want to show your belly. To get the coverage you want, look for longer tops that are stretchy so they can accommodate your bumps.

A fitted active top can also provide some extra support for your midsection.

Stay active during pregnancy

Pregnant women benefit from continuing to exercise during pregnancy. Although intensity and frequency may have to vary based on the individual and pregnancy schedule. At YOYOUNG, we are proud to offer maternity workout clothes for expectant mothers who want to stay strong and active. If you want custom maternity sportswear, please contact us.
