I’m really proud to say that I was able to stay active throughout both of my pregnancies. Trust me—I know it’s not always easy to find the stamina or the motivation to work out when the simple act of getting to your feet can be a major challenge. But you can do it too, and I’m going to let you in on my three-part secret to making it happen. Spoiler alert—it’s kind of a no brainer.
First, with your health in mind and your doctor’s approval to do so, find the type of exercise you enjoy the most (hint: it might be different than what you used to love in your pre-bump days). For me, it was yoga, and I loved it so much that I still look forward to my weekly classes—downward dog forever and ever! Next, figure out what will motivate you to make it a part of your routine. Maybe just knowing that you’re doing your body and your baby a world of good is enough. Or you might treat yourself to a prenatal massage as a reward for sticking to that routine. And finally, invest in some great activewear that’s both stylish and comfortable—it will make you feel great both mentally and physically, and Belabumbum offers an amazing line of activewear that does just that.
You might already know the name Belabumbum—I mean, their collection is the gold standard of sleepwear and intimates whether you’re expecting or not. What you may not know is that the company also offers a line called Belabumbum ACTIVE that definitely deserves a spot on your wish list. From ultra comfortable maternity activewear to bras and tops for the active nursing mama, there’s something in the collection for everyone, and because it was designed and made by Belabumbum, you know it will be both affordable and high quality.
The Layered Cami is a gorgeous option for pregnant and nursing mamas alike. The pull-aside style makes nursing a breeze, and it’s designed with a mesh overlay for built-in privacy. I’m a huge fan of a racerback for my workouts, so I love the style of this top, and the breathable, moisture-wicking stretch fabric is perfect for those days when you’re really getting your sweat on. The hip-length underlayer is so versatile, making this cami a top that you can wear throughout your pregnancy and beyond.
If you’re in search of a sports bra for medium-impact activity that will pull double-duty while you’re nursing your little one, check out the Ultra Smooth Nursing Sports Bra. It truly combines the best of both worlds—microfiber and mesh construction give this bra all the best qualities of activewear, and the nursing clasps give you one-handed access when it’s feeding time. A gorgeous design, thoughtful details and function to spare? I’ll take one in each color!
You’ll absolutely love the adjustable fit that the Convertible Capri Pant provides whether you’re an active, expectant mama or just getting back into your fitness routine postpartum. When I was pregnant, I remember strategically choosing my outfits based on whether I wanted a little extra support or just plain old comfort, so I really appreciate that these pants can give you both. The extra-wide waistband can be worn either up over your belly or folded down, and the four-way stretch fabric allows you to move while still giving you the support you need.
Besides these beautiful activewear styles that are perfect for any fit mama, we adore Belabumbum’s philosophy—that women are beautiful at every stage and the clothes they wear should help them to feel that way. The company’s whole collection is produced in Colombia, Peru, Brazil and Mexico by partnering with small, family-run manufacturers, and the fabrics are all sourced in the Americas—that’s definitely something we’re proud to support.
You can shop Belabumbum ACTIVE at specialty and maternity boutiques, Nordstrom and Amazon, in addition to their website.
