We’re sharing our go-to lululemon maternity products for pregnancy and postpartum, including tops, bottoms, and, of course, bras!
If you are looking for tried and tested lululemon maternity gear recommendations, you’ve come to the right place! Between all of the team members at Fit Foodie Finds, we’ve had 4 pregnancies and worn many lululemon outfit combinations during all stages of pregnancies.
In this post, we’ll share our top picks for all categories (bottoms, tops, and bras) and give you our honest, and thorough reviews on why we love them.
Our top 2 lululemon maternity picks
We put our votes up for the top 2 products we couldn’t live without during pregnancy and it was unanimous!
- Align Pant: Our #1 lululemon item for growing bellies? The Align Pant! If we had to choose just 1 item, it would be these leggings. They are buttery soft, so comfortable, and give the perfect amount of belly compression.
- Like a Cloud Bra: this bra is truly life-changing. It is incredibly soft and perfect for everyday clothing and low-impact workouts. It comes in a variety of cup sizes making it the perfect bra for all shapes and sizes. Coming from a woman who peaked at a 36G during pregnancy, this is my ride or die bra!
Why do we love lululemon during pregnancy?
- Stretch: growing a baby means a growing and changing body, and you’ll love the way these lululemon products stretch with you as you go without ever feeling stretched-out.
- Comfort: there’s enough discomfort that comes along with growing and raising babies, you don’t need to experience that from your clothes! These lululemon products are oh so comfy cozy.
- Versatility: whether you’re working out, lounging on the couch, or bringing your baby home from the hospital, get the versatility you need 😀
- 4th tri: we were able to carry the majority of these looks into the 4th trimester, really giving you the biggest bang for you buck!
To size up or not to size up?
Emily and Lee both sized up one size in most lululemon products (especially leggings and bras) for the last few months of pregnancy and early postpartum. We are all about feeling comfortable in our bodies and often times with a growing belly, this means sizing up!

lululemon Maternity: Best Tops
When it comes to maternity tops, we’re big fans of things we would wear even when we’re NOT pregnant! These tops are perfectly stretchy, super soft and great for everything from workouts to lounging to nursing your baby.
Swiftly tech tops
The swiftly line is seamless, super stretchy and made from sweat-wicking material, which makes it great for everything from workouts to walks. Did we mention it comes in a long sleeve, short sleeve, and racerback tank version? We might own all 3 😀
The biggest piece of advice we have with the Swiftly line is to purchase the classic length and NOT the race length. The race length is cropped and with a growing belly, that would turn into a belly shirt!
We’ve never met a scuba top we don’t love, especially for pregnancy and postpartum! The Scuba Oversized Half Zip is oh so soft, and the oversized fit gives you room to move throughout pregnancy. The half-zip is great for nursing, too 😀
Perfectly oversized cropped crew
This sweatshirt comes in the amazing Softstreme material that is so seriously buttery soft. We love the Perfectly Oversized Cropped Crew because it’s a baggier fit that’s perfect for a growing belly or lifting up to nurse. It can easily be dressed up with jeans or worn with your align leggings.
Don’t want a cropped version? The full-length Oversized Crew is amazing for pregnancy, and fit over Emily’s bump til the very end.
Ebb to StreeT Tank
The Ebb to Street Tank is a wonderful top for breastfeeding. You can easily pull the strap down and the built-in bra provides enough coverage and light support. We recommend going a size up from your normal-sized tank.
All Yours Cotton T-Shirt
The All Yours Cotton T-Shirt is a great shirt to wear during pregnancy and post-partum. It is cotton so it holds its shape quite nicely and has a decent amount of room without feeling too oversized. Lee is wearing her normal size – 6.
lululemon Maternity: Best Bras
lululemon is our go-to for both sports bras and everyday bras whether we are pregnant or not! We love the thought and design that goes into all of their bras and have been very happy with all of their new bra-sized styles that have been coming out.
Align Bra (C/D)
The Align Bra recently came out in a C/D variation, which is perfect for both pregnancy and post-partum when the ladies start to produce milk. Lee has lived in the Align Bra throughout pregnancy because it’s so soft and actually has enough coverage for her growing boobs. Her bust size grew to a 36H during pregnancy and this bra was her holy grail.
We recommend sizing up 1 or 2 depending on your milk production!
Like a cloud bra
The Like a Cloud Bra is truly life-changing. It’s silky smooth, not too tight, but still has enough coverage for pregnant and postpartum moms. Lee is a huge fan of the long-line variation and is wearing a size 8 in the below photo in the D/DD version (she was in her first tri here). Once she reached the third trimester and especially postpartum, she sized up to a 10 and a 12. PS: this comes in a handful of size variations including B/C and D/DD.
All powered up bra
The All Powered Up Bra is so great for anything higher impact because of its amazing support. lululemon considered it a medium-support bra, but Lee has done countless cycle and HIIT workouts in this bra and it holds the gals in great! She’s wearing a 34E and loves that this bra gives her full coverage and great support.
In alignment bra
The In-Alignment Bra comes in many variations – A/B, C/D, and now D-G bra sizes (linked to what I’m wearing below)! When going for something more structured, Lee goes for her 34DD and when she wants something more t-shirt bra-like, the size 8 in the C/D is the perfect fit.
The In-Alignment Bra is truly her everyday bra because of the straps. You can wear it with tank tops, under v-necks, and heck you could even do yoga in it!
The Energy Bra is really what made us fall in love with lululemon sports bras in the first place (YEARS ago!), and it’s what we recommend to anyone who has never bought a lululemon sports bra before. The Energy Bra is a medium-support, B-D cup racerback sports bra that’s great for high-impact workouts.
Emily sizes up from an 8 to a 10 for pregnancy and nursing in the Energy Bra, and Miranda sized up from a 6 to an 8 in her second trimester.
lululemon Maternity: Best Bottoms
Never are we ever wearing any bottoms that cut in or tug in the wrong way during pregnancy and postpartum, which is why you’ll almost always find us wearing lululemon pants or leggings. Here are some of our favorites!
The Align leggings have been a Fit Foodie favorite for YEARS. We absolutely love the buttery soft fabric and high-rise fit that moves with you regardless of what activity you’re doing, and especially for a changing body during pregnancy and postpartum.
Emily sized up from a 6 to an 8 in her Align leggings after 30 weeks during her pregnancy and loved the roomier fit for postpartum as well. Miranda is wearing a size 4.
The Align Joggers come in a variety of different fits, but the one that is best for pregnancy is by far the Align Sper High-Rise Ribbed Waist Jogger. It folds down so it can easily sit below the belly, or you can unfold it and it can hug the belly like a belly band. It’s truly life-changing! Lee is wearing her normal size – 8.
Scuba high-rise jogger
The Scuba Joggers are ultimate comfort! A true soft sweatpants feel makes these oh so great for the days you just want to feel cozy. Plus, the high-rise waist is great for everything from a growing belly to a healing c-section scar. We recommend sizing up for a roomier, comfy fit!
The Align shorts offer all the buttery soft goodness of the Align leggings, but with 4 shorts length options, and some that even have pockets.
- Align Shorts (4, 6, 8 or 10 in. inseam)
- Align Shorts Super High Rise (4, 6, 8 or 10 in. inseam)
- Align Shorts with pockets (6 or 8 in. inseam)
Hotty hot shorts and skirt
The Hotty Hot Short is so great for pregnancy and postpartum, especially during the warm summer months because the fabric is so lightweight. These shorts have a wider quad opening and a 4-inch inseam that gives you a little bit more coverage as well.
And don’t sleep on the Hotty Hot Skirt version as well that boasts the same wide stretchy waistband and lightweight fabric 😀
Track that shorts
We love the Track That Mid-Rise Shorts because they’re super free-flowing with a wider leg opening and have an amazing wide elastic waist that doesn’t dig in even with a growing belly and hips.
