The best part of no longer being pregnant (other than having an unbelievably adorable baby boy to show for it) is the drastic expansion of my wardrobe. I went from wearing just about the same thing each and every week to having so many more items that felt brand new, since it had been such a long time that I’d been able to wear them.
Workout clothes were no exception. I had 4 pair of workout shorts/skirts and a few pair of capris that I rotated each and every week. I most definitely got my use out of them! I ended up finding a great pair of capris that I bought in two different patterns – at Sam’s Club when we were there on a random Saturday. They had a nice big waist band and I just went a size up from my normal size. They fit perfectly!
My other favorite pair of shorts happened to be from For Two Fitness. I love their tanks – they were a complete staple in my preggo wardrobe. Luckily, the Inspiration Maternity Running Shorts were no exception. The amazing folks over at the company were nice enough to send me a pair of the shorts to try out and I am so, so glad they did!
I was able to wear them all the way up until my due date, and postpartum too. The built in briefs were great and I never got a wedgie (woo hoo!!) I really like the panel, because you can either wear it all the way up, half way, or even roll it down. Since I was pregnant in late April and May in Florida, I found the shorts more comfy to roll down. The full panel was a little toasty for me, as it is a little bit on the thicker side. I do think it would be perfect for a cooler time of year, as the panel itself felt pretty supportive.
The length was also something I really enjoyed. I’m not a fan of longer length shorts usually, but I definitely held a bit of girth in my legs and butt when I was pregnant and really liked the extra length. They didn’t ride up and I didn’t chafe at all in these shorts. Other shorts I was wearing through my pregnancy would consistently ride up, unless they were long spandex or capri length bottoms.
There also is a little pocket to make it easy to carry keys or something of the like. I do wish the shorts had a zipper instead of a little pocket. I’m always nervous to put keys or credit cards in a pocket, but I’ll always utilize a zipper if its available!
I do wish the shorts came in more colors! Black is great since it goes with just about everything, but I do love some more fun colors and prints. Maybe they will expand the selections in the future! I used to be a bit more concerned on the price tag of pregnancy outfits. While I won’t go crazy on the outfits, I will pay the $$ these shorts costs. I believe it is well worth the investment to be comfortable while I’m exercising. If I’m not comfortable, then I am a lot less likely to get out and stay active. Not to mention I’ll be able to use them in future pregnancies too!
