Healthy and fit during your pregnancy!

Did you know that exercising during your pregnancy is beneficial for both your body and your baby? Maintaining your energy levels and the flexibility of your muscles will not just prove beneficial during labour, but also after you have given birth and want to continue with your regular workout routine. Wonderful sports to try out during your pregnancy include prenatal yoga and swimming, but it goes without saying that joining special mommy bootcamps is also a good option.

Maybe joining one of these sports has already been ticked off your maternity checklist. But have you considered your outfit yet? Your partner’s sweatpants and a loose-fitting top may be the first things that spring to mind. Flattering? Not really – and not very comfy when jumping up and down with that baby bump either. A sports outfit similar to the one you regularly wear, but with added features for support, is not a mere luxury and may even be a must-have item to add to your maternity checklist.

The Esprit for mums sports top is breathable, moisture wicking and quick drying, and includes a special feature: an incorporated sports bra. Ideal, because this means you don’t have to go out shopping for another bra with straps that can be hidden behind the cool racerback of this top. Another lovely detail is the perfectly positioned colour blocking of the top to create a slimming silhouette. This not just beautifully accentuates your maternity waist, but also highlights your baby bump.

These sports leggings perfectly match the top in terms of fabric colour and – naturally – they also come with the added features you need when exercising. The semi-seamless waistband prevents skin irritation and supports your pelvis. In addition, the belly band provides added comfort for you and your baby when you are busy working out in prenatal yoga class or mommy bootcamp. The fabric is breathable, moisture wicking and quick drying. After your pregnancy, the belly band can easily be flipped down, allowing you to keep wearing these sports trousers for a long time.

Last but not least! Complete your outfit with a comfy sweater. Its soft fabric makes it a sweater you may never want to take off again and the wide cuff beautifully hits at the hips. This ensures you have plenty of room for your growing baby and that the sweater is nice and comfy for the entire duration of your pregnancy. One more tiny detail, the wide neckline shows the strap of your top, creating a matching outfit for all your sports activities. Enjoy your workout!
