Advantages: Well fitted, comfortable, versatile
Disadvantages: Only available in black
As my baby bump started to grow, I found I could still fit in to many of my dresses, just not my leggings. I didn't want to spend a lot of money on maternity clothes, so I went to H&M and brought myself some MAMA leggings, costing £7.99. The leggings only come in long length (ankle length) and black. They are 5% elastane and 95% organic cotton and are machine washable at 40 degrees. They come in small, medium and large. I am a size 12, and have gone for the medium.
The leggings themselves feel nice and soft. The main body of the leggings fits up to my hips in the normal way, with the extra 'baby band' that stretches right over the top of my baby bump. I am now six and a half months pregnant and have been wearing the leggings since I was about four months pregnant and there is still room for them to stretch as I continue to grow. One thing I was concerned about was the length - at 5' 8 I often struggle to but leggings that are long enough, but these probably have a couple of inches to spare so likely to be too long for shorter people.
I now have two pairs of the leggings which I wear all the time. They have stretched out of shape in that time and always come out of the wash looking and feeling like new. They are great to wear with shoes or boots, are incredibly comfortable and keep my bump nice and snug. The only down side to these, is that they only come in one colour - I hope that H&M extends its range one day.
I would definitely recommend them - they have become my maternity wardrobe essential and I will recommend to all my pregnant friends when they are sorting out their maternity wardrobe.
5 stars from me - I was tempted to deduct one for the lack of choice of colour, but I do love them, and they are such a bargain at that price.
Thanks for reading
Ps - I have also continued to wear these since having my daughter as they are so comfortable!
Summary: My pregnancy must have - I couldnt have coped without them!
