Staying active while pregnant is considered as safe. But anyone who has been pregnant knows that maternity shopping can be a real letdown. Besides not being able to find the perfect fit, the offerings in the maternity world are less than appealing, especially when it comes to workout clothes. We’ve highlighted some of the favorite must-have pieces, and offered tips on what to look for when you’re shopping for maternity activewear.

Comfort is king when you’re pregnant, and a pair of capris like these can be adjusted to suit what’s comfortable for you. Plus, these are also great post-partum because they can be folded down do adapt to your changing figure.
As your belly gets bigger, you’ll need some room on top to fit your burgeoning bump. Tops with ruching on the side are a good option if you want to flatter your belly plus they will last throughout your whole pregnancy because they can stretch out.
