Why do moms wear workout clothes every day? Because parenting is an extreme sport. For real. We have to chase wild toddlers, lift heavy groceries while potentially still carrying said toddler, maintain stamina when running errands with our kids, bend down and put away toys, juggle laundry, and so much more. We need to remain comfortable and covered while multitasking and raising babies. This explains why athleisure wear is a common mom dress code, and I don’t think this is a trend that will be ending anytime soon!

If you’re looking for some athleisure pieces that are cute and will accommodate your mom duties as well as a workout, here are some of our favorite mom-friendly workout clothes to check out.

For Expecting Moms

Look 1: Feeling Good

We have a lot of feelings during pregnancy and we hope that this look will having you feeling good. 🙂

Look 3: Rocker Mama

“Vintage” rocker tees are very popular right now. I think getting an oversized rocker tee for your growing bump and then pairing it with whichever leggings suits you and adding ear crawlers are a fun way to spice up your athleisure look.

For Breastfeeding Moms

Look 1

Comfort, layering and flowy were my rules when I dressed myself postpartum. These mom-friendly workout clothes are great for meeting up with friends or for working up a sweat! (Once your healthcare provider has given you the thumbs up to exercise, of course.)

Look 2: Relaxed Casual

Sometimes all you want to wear are sweats especially when you have a newborn and are getting little sleep. Here is a cute look that is still relaxed and comfortable, but put together enough to leave the house. It’s also breastfeeding-friendly! Add a pair of aviator sunglasses and you are good to go!

Bike shorts are being seen more which is a nice alternative to leggings. (Don’t knock ’em till you try ’em!) And I love this nursing bra. Sooo soft and comfortable!
