An Ode to Arielle and Tara's Pregnancy Style Staple: Leggings

Thank you to our friends at A Pea in the Pod for partnering with us on this story.

Everyone has their hero fashion items–those trusty picks you turn to again and again to easily create a stylish look. When you're pregnant and getting dressed with your bump in mind, these staples become even more essential.

For Arielle and Tara, leggings have been a major wardrobe necessity during their pregnancies. They both turned to A Pea in the Pod, a longtime SN fave, for high-quality maternity-friendly leggings.

A Pea in the Pod's expansive selection of maternity essentials gives women the freedom to maintain their signature sense of style throughout pregnancy. It's no surprise that they also perfected the art of bump-friendly leggings, with options available in a variety of materials all designed to seamlessly accommodate a growing bump. 

Take a look at Arielle and Tara's absolute favorite leggings to wear during pregnancy (and beyond!):

Arielle has two standout pairs of maternity leggings from A Pea in the Pod in her wardrobe. She loves the Luxe Essentials Leggings for casual occasions, like school dropoff or running errands. "They're super comfortable, and I can last all day in them," Arielle said. Take a cue from Arielle as you style them: she adds sneakers, a cozy black sweatshirt, and a hat to finish off the look.

For a dressed up or more formal event, Arielle opts for A Pea in the Pod's Compression Leggings. "They are fitted everywhere on my body but also super comfortable around the belly–and not constricting at all," Arielle said.

This specific legging design has a graduated leg compression from the thigh to the ankle, which supports tired legs and improves circulation. To complete her look, Arielle pairs them with a white tee, a structured blazer, and fun heels.

"I am officially two weeks out from my due date, and now I can very confidently talk about my number one fashion resource throughout pregnancy: leggings!"–Tara

For Tara, A Pea in the Pod's Luxe Essential Leggings have been an everyday staple throughout her pregnancy. And, since they were designed for all stages of pregnancy and new motherhood, she's planning to wear them even after welcoming her baby.

"The leggings are incredible," Tara said. "They are extremely soft yet supportive. They actually have a patented Secret Belly Fit so they hold you in nicely." Plus, they're entirely opaque, so you don't have to worry about see-through bottoms and you can easily style them for both dressy occasions or at-home lounging.
