Leggings. Very much in fashion this season … they’re everywhere. I’m not normally one to endorse fashion – as fashion fades, style is eternal. That’s from Yves Saint Laurent not me and forms one of The Golden Rules.
I’ve always been in to my skinny jeans. Leggings weren’t on my agenda until I found myself pregnant. To be quite honest, I’ve always been put off leggings due to ‘Camel Toe’. Grim. if you’re not sure what Camel Toe is, read this Wiki article. Yes there is a Wiki article on Camel Toe!
Anyway, with the expanding bump I decided that it was time to get over my issue with Camel Toe and get myself some leggings – after all I wouldn’t be wearing with a crop top and they are comfortable!
I shopped around in all the normal places, but could not find any good maternity ones, until I popped in to New Look. It’s often in the place you would least expect you find what you’re looking for isn’t it!
New Look maternity leggings are superb for a number of reasons:
- They’re long – I’m 5’8″ and wear a 34″ jean
- They go over the bump and I have found this much more comfortable
- They are 95% cotton
- They don’t get baggy
- They’re cheap!
I brought mine when I was about 15 weeks pregnant … they’re still doing well now I’m 31 weeks pregnant and I wear them a couple of times a week – so they’ve been washed and tumble dried a lot. I dress them up, dress them down and I wear them as a base layer regularly. They’re very versatile.
I’d give these a 5/5 – They are a must have in any maternity wardrobe.
You can buy the leggings at any New Look store which has a maternity section or online. They cost £10, plus £3.50 delivery if you don’t buy in store.
