The best postpartum leggings should be soft, supportive, and comfortable. Most important of all they should make you feel confident in your body. In this article we want to break down the importance of a good pair of postpartum leggings, and where you can find some!
What are Postpartum Leggings?
So, you’ve given birth, you have a new child to look after, and you are still exhausted and recovering from labor. Many women find the postpartum transition to be very difficult. Not only are you now taking care of an infant, but you also may be struggling with your own body image. It can be incredibly difficult to feel happy and confident in your postpartum body, when nothing fits anymore. You aren’t quite as small as you were before the baby, and your maternity clothes may be too big now.
Postpartum leggings are a great solution to this problem. They are soft, comfortable, and supportive – all things you need right after giving birth. Perfect for working around the house, and taking care of your newborn, plus most of them are even nice enough to wear in public! And they come in so many styles, colors, and lengths that they can be worn for practically any event.
Benefits of Wearing Postpartum Leggings
While maternity clothing tends to get all the hype, postpartum clothing is just as important. Particularly when it comes to your confidence. Many women find it difficult to maintain a positive body image after they have given birth. It can be incredibly frustrating to not be able to fit into anything you own, and your changing hormones just make it worse.
For most postpartum women, the stomach area is a major source of discomfort and insecurity. Postpartum leggings tend to be high-waisted so they are able to slim down the stomach area. In addition to this, they can be compression garments that support your postpartum stomach which can aid your recovery.
The best postpartum leggings will offer an overall slimming effect in the butt, legs, and stomach area. This can help you feel more confident and happy in your postpartum body. They are the perfect combination of style, comfort, and functionality.
What Type Should You Get?
When looking for your perfect pair of postpartum leggings, it is important that you take a few things into consideration.
- The fabric that you want the leggings to be made of. Some women choose a more stretchy fabric, while others prefer more breathable fabrics. The best postpartum leggings will be a combination of stretchy and breathable fabric.
- The length of the leggings. Perhaps you gave birth in the summer and don’t want a pair of long leggings that make you sweat – there are multiple different options available. Postpartum biker shorts are becoming more and more popular, as well as postpartum capris. No matter what length you want, there will be something available for you.
- Style. The typical postpartum legging design is a simple black color with stitching along the sides; but there are lots of options available in terms of style. Some women choose to use jeggings (jeans/leggings combination) for a more out-on-the-town look, while still maintaining comfort. Other women may choose to go for a bright color, or a bold print. You can make pretty much any outfit you want with postpartum leggings.
When purchasing a pair of postpartum leggings it may be a good idea to think of what you want from the leggings. Are these going to be your lounge pants? Are they going to be your exercise pants? Maybe they are going to be your going out pants. Make sure you choose the best style, length, and fabric for the season and for the activity you want them for.
One other factor to consider when purchasing a pair of postpartum leggings is how much money you want to spend on them. Some women are not wanting to spend a lot of money on an expensive pair of “transition” clothes. The best postpartum leggings will be designed to be worn by both postpartum and the average woman. Allowing them to be worn even after you have left the “transition” period.
