When you’re pregnant, pretty much the only clothes you want to wear are pieces that are ultra-comfortable. After all, your body is constantly changing, your skin is super-sensitive and you’ve got a million things on your mind other than figuring out your outfit of the day. This truth has merely tripled during the coronavirus pandemic, now that you’re stuck at home and have little reason to change out of your pajamas. But let’s be honest: There are only so many days in a row you can wear the same pair of leggings. So what’s an expectant mom to do? Stock up on the coziest maternity loungewear, of course!

You may not be able to venture out to your favorite stores and peruse through the racks, but you can easily (and safely) shop online for your new must-have WFH looks. From maternity sweatpants and sweatshirts to tanks and tees, here’s a roundup of our favorite maternity loungewear items that are still in stock (and in many cases, on major sale!).

Maternity Leggings

Maternity leggings are a pregnancy staple during normal times, but with the level of use they’re getting during lockdown, it goes without saying you need a couple extra pairs. Here are some of our top picks.

Kindred Bravely The Louisa Ultra High-Waisted Over the Bump Maternity Leggings

You’ll live in these ultrasoft leggings that can be worn over your bump or folded down. The premium fabric stretches but doesn’t bunch or sag, and it’s 100 percent NOT see-through. A no-brainer for any maternity loungewear collection.

Zella Live In Maternity Crop Leggings

It really is the little things that make life more fun when you’re stuck at home indefinitely—like the cute camo print on these stretchy, supportive leggings. If you’ve been wearing the same black leggings over and over and need a change of pace, these are the answer.

Beyond Yoga Spacedye Love The Bump Capri Maternity Legging

If it’s starting to warm up where you live (or you’re just running a little warm these days), try these cropped leggings. With an over-the-belly panel that feels like a supportive hug and crazy-soft fabric in trendy colors (hello, rose quartz!), you’ll want to wear these, well, all the time. Even if you can’t get to an IRL prenatal yoga class right now, the moisture-wicking fabric is still a nice option for at-home workouts.

Maternity Sweatpants

If a snug fit just isn’t the maternity loungewear look you’re going for, you’ve got plenty of loose, comfy options among these must-have maternity sweatpants.

Yes, please.
