I’ve been sharing my love for BLANQI tanks and leggings online and offline since my first pregnancy in 2014.
I reach for their leggings in my stack of leggings first. They’re made out of a really nice material (94% nylon, 6% spandex) that I feel comfortable dressing up and wearing outside the house. I have my “regular” cotton leggings that are more like pajamas that I clean the house in, etc., but these are much nicer and don’t make me feel frumpy, as leggings tend to do.
The BLANQI maternity over-the-bump leggings have built-in belly support that helps alleviate the weight of the baby on your back as well as a moisture-wicking finish that keeps you cool and dry.
The BLANQI postpartum high-waist leggings are similar but don’t have that belly support; instead they have a gentle compression to keep you feeling secure after having a baby.
We went camping for 3 days a few weeks back, and I wore the BLANQI leggings and their tanks the whole time. Best decision ever. Even slept in them.
I wore the postpartum leggings in this post after having my first baby. I liked nursing in them too since my postpartum “bump” and stretchmarks were covered!
Something to note is that you need to be careful washing them and having things like boot straps rubbing against your legs. I recommend hand-washing in cold water to be safe; I have washed them in the machine in a lingerie bag on cold as well (don’t put bulky items or things with zippers or velcro in the load with them, turn them inside out, no softener, air dry — just use common sense and they’ll last forever).
What is the difference between the Maternity Belly Support Leggings and the Highwaist Support Leggings?
The Maternity Belly Support Leggings have a built-in belly support panel that is designed to grow with your bump while still providing maximum lift and support. The belly panel is not completely opaque and the leggings fit true to size. We recommend ordering a size up if in between sizes or in your third trimester. Sizing is determined by your pre-pregnancy size.
The Highwaist Support Leggings are 100% opaque from top to bottom and provide gentle compression to keep you feeling put together. The leggings are seamless, moisture-wicking and help smooth out any lines giving you maximum postpartum
comfort. The Highwaist Leggings make nursing a breeze; any shirt becomes a nursing shirt as you have easy access by pulling up your shirt and your nursing bra down while still keeping your midsection covered. Perfect for those little ones who don’t like being covered up!
How do I know what size to order?
BLANQI Leggings are sized according to your pre-pregnancy number. If you fall in between sizes, or are in your third trimester, order one size up.
What are the special Wear & Care instructions?
As with any quality legging, your BLANQI Leggings require special wear and care to ensure you get the most out of them and keep them looking fresh! They recommend the leggings are hand washed or run through the gentle/cold cycle and laid flat to dry. Don’t use fabric softener.
