Here’s the scoop on maternity yoga pants: If your regular yoga pants continue to be comfortable and offer the support you need as your belly grows, fantastic and namaste. If they are starting to feel too tight, it’s probably time to throw a pair or two of maternity yoga pants into the mix. (Or maternity leggings if yoga isn’t your jam.)

Maternity yoga pants are great for lots of reasons. First of all, they have an expandable belly band that leaves ample room for growth, which also makes for a great postpartum yoga pant option. The good ones support your belly without feeling constricting — it’s hard to reach peak level of zen while wearing pants that are too tight. (Not that it’s easy with a baby kicking your internal organs either, but at least you’ll be wearing something comfy.) Ideally, maternity yoga pants should be made from breathable fabric so you can comfortably get your sweat on.
