Sleek Pocket-Free Maternity & Postnatal Leggings - Soft Black


Need some help? Find your fit.

Our best-selling pocket-free maternity and postnatal leggings!

After being named the UK's best maternity leggings by the Independent newspaper, Closer magazine and Mother & Baby, our beautifully soft, squat proof maternity leggings are have launched in a new Sleek, pocket-free design!

Created to see you through every stage of your pregnancy and still be worn postnatally too, this new style is as perfect for the gym as it is styling it up with your favourite maternity looks. The buttery soft fabric feels like a second skin and will stretch as you grow for a totally flattering fit. 

The wide, non-slip, over bump panel, provides support to your bump, back and hips as your baby grows. Feel like you need a little extra lift? Simply fold the panel over itself, under the bump for additional compression support in these areas.

Post-pregnancy keep the panel folded up for a great high waisted legging, or fold it down and wear as you would any other leggings. The low rise waistline has been specially designed to avoid irritating c-section scars, while the high tech fabric wicks sweat as you work out.

While these leggings are as comfortable for yoga as they are for more high impact activities, the luxurious fabric makes them as stylish for everyday wear – which is exactly why they've been named the best maternity leggings many times over!

Not sure what size you need? Take a look at our size guide below - this is based on your typical pre-pregnancy size. If you are usually between sizes and pregnant, we suggest sizing up. If you are looking to wear them as a postnatal legging, we suggest sizing down (or sizing to the lower end of the spectrum). If you still aren't totally sure, drop us an email on for advice and we'll be happy to help!

Our model is a pre-pregnancy size 8 and is wearing a size 6. She is 37 weeks pregnant in the images.


It can be tricky to know what size to get when your shape is constantly changing. We want to ensure you get a perfect fit every time so have created this handy size guide to help you get it right.

Measuring bra size

If you are not sure what bra size you currently are, grab a tape measure and check out Boob or Bust who have a handy calculator, calibrated to take pregnancy and breastfeeding in to account.

This chart calculates in line with the Boob or Bust size guides rather than the bra size you wear. This is because bra sizes vary hugely between brands and we want to ensure you get the best fit every time.  At the very least we recommend choosing the size that corresponds with your under bust measurement in inches - not your bra size! 

We always recommend choosing your pre-pregnancy size for the best fit during and after pregnancy. If you are already pregnant and finding bras too tight, we'd typically suggest picking one size below your current under bust measurement and using the bra extender to the end of your pregnancy (for the best postnatal fit). 

Still not sure? Drop us an email on with your measurements and current bra size and we will get back to you as soon as we can!

The best leggings!

This is already my second legging from Natalactive and I have to say I just wish you also did non-maternity leggings because I have never found a fit, a material and a price that made m soooo happy!!! I love these leggings more than my regular pre-maternity ones, they keep everything in place during any workout, you feel your belly supported and they are so confortable! Could not recommend more!

Work for running at 26 weeks!

I just got these as all my running leggings are no longer working for me. These are soft and comfortable (I've run up to 12km in them so far) and they don't work their way down like most brands do. Still easily fits over 26 week bump and I think they'll last until the end.

Best pregnancy leggings!

Decided to splash out on some leggings and I am so glad I did. They fit perfectly and are true to size. I also love the length, not too long which is ideal. They aren't see through at all which was very important to me. And are super comfortable, and I imagine they will be as my bump grows more. If I could wear them everyday I would.

Thanks for designing the best pair of maternity leggings!

My favourite maternity leggings!

I have been living in these leggings during my pregnancy - they are super soft and comfortable, and fit like a dream! I initially ordered a size 8 based on the advice to order your pre-pregnant size and these fitted really well until I was about 26 - 28 weeks, but I needed a little extra room after that and so bought a few pairs in the next size up which will definitely see me through. I just know these will continue to be my go-to leggings after my little one arrives!


Not only are these the best maternity leggings I've ever owned - I think they are the best leggings I've ever owned! They are such lovely quality, supportive and in no way see through. The material is also great. It's not shiny at all, but also not super matt. Just perfect! I'd also say they are true to size with room for a growing bump.
