We recommend sizing for the Mother Tucker Leggings post- pregnancy. However, if you want to have a pair “hospital bag” ready, we’d suggest ordering one size larger than your pre-pregnancy size.
Of course, every “body” is different, so sizing during pregnancy is tricky. While we can’t guarantee 100% accuracy, we can ensure you’ll be getting some Mother Tuckin’ amazing leggings!
Maternity Leggings/Capris: Please note to measure your Hips for correct sizing.

Our Maternity Compression Tights are designed with graduated, medical grade compression to energize your legs, improve circulation, and help prevent varicose veins. The lightweight belly support provides comfort and breathability while the no-roll top keeps the tights gently in place. These are maternity tights done right.
Our Maternity Compression Tights are designed to be just that, compressive & tight! The relief they provide is ahhh, but actually getting them on can be ahhh-ful! That’s why we suggest the following steps:
1. Legs should be completely dry, remove jewelry, and be sure your nails are filed to avoid snags
2. Reach your hand into the tights and grasp the inside of the heel
3. While holding the heel, turn the tights inside out to leave a pocket for your foot
4. Place your toes in the “foot pocket” and pull up to your heel, making sure your entire foot is comfortably placed before moving up the leg
5. Grab upper layer of fabric near the middle of the foot and lift it over your foot and ankle
6. Grasp the remaining material with both hands and continue to pull over calf gently
7. Slowly slide the tights over your knees, thighs, hips, and waist.
8. Adjust as necessary, keeping in mind that the ideal fit is when the bottom of the belly seam is pulled up between your legs and rests comfortably in the groin area.
While you may break a sweat trying to get them on, we promise, the relief is worth the effort!

Belly Bandit Maternity Compression Tights use medical grade compression technology to apply extra pressure on your legs from thighs to toes. The additional pressure helps support your veins and muscles so blood keeps flowing instead of pooling in one place, which can result in painful swelling and varicose veins. Not only do these tights offer full leg compression, they also have built-in belly and arch support.
Maternity compression tights are a must-have during pregnancy. They support your entire body and help prevent and reduce a variety of pregnancy symptoms like swelling, varicose veins, and even nausea or vertigo. Less discomfort and more relief make compression tights some of the best maternity tights in our book!
You can start wearing maternity compression tights at any point during your pregnancy. You can start wearing these black maternity tights at any point during your pregnancy. Most women begin wearing them regularly towards the end of their pregnancy since this is when swelling is more common.
They can. Swelling and varicose veins are both caused by poor circulation resulting in blood collecting in one place. Blood can collect in an entire body part like your feet or even just in one vein. Compression helps keep blood moving so it’s less likely to pool and cause swelling or discomfort.
Of course! We recommend only wearing them while pregnant. These tights are specifically designed to only compress your legs and include extra maternity features like built-in belly support and a no-roll top for extra comfort.
We’ll put it this way — once you have them on, you’ll never want to take them off!
You can reference the Belly Bandit Leggings/Bottoms Size Chart to quickly compare your measurements to find your size.
Our Belly Bandit Maternity Compression Tights are constructed using a spandex-nylon blend that’s both soft and breathable. This fabric blend will easily keep you feeling fresh and comfortable all day long.

I tried L and boy am I glad we did. I was a size 6 prior to pregnancy, and at 21 weeks, I am currently 38" waist and 43.5" hips (which falls under both L for hips and XL for waist measurements in the size chart). I didn't have great leverage for such a feat, so I laid down on the ground while my husband helped put them on. It was a hilarious endeavor to me, but once they were finally on, my goodness I felt comfortable and like I was being lifted. Almost lighter on my feet. This is worth the struggle for me personally, esp with all my current aches and pains (the belly, hip AND thigh area), but I'll still be investing in just socks for when I need to go simpler.
Plan on putting in some effort when you want to wear these tights, but I enjoy them in the winter and the compression definitely feels great throughout the day.
Very well made, the compression is great during my long work shifts. They are long. And they’re very hard to get on and off but that’s the same problem with anything that uses compression.
These are a real work out to put on, but at this point in my pregnancy they are so worth it. I’ve been struggling with varicose veins and swelling and these really make a difference. I bought some other more affordable options on Amazon, but the compression level they claimed was not there. Really glad I came across these!
Let me start by saying that our midwife recommended either thigh-high compression socks or compression tights because I have (and have for the most part always had) low blood pressure. I started this journey with a $25 pair of thigh-highs from amazon that could not have been more painful and ended with my partner clicking "purchase" on these because I found the price tag daunting.
Yes, these are expensive. Yes, getting them on is a workout - I'm currently 6 months and will need help to get them on very soon - and no, I have never been able to get them off myself. The difference between a day where I don't wear these tights and when I do is like night and day, making all those things worth it. Without them, I have low energy and exist in a brain fog. With them, I feel like my pre-pregnancy self.
In terms of sizing, I used my pre-pregnancy size to identify sizing (opted for a small: 5'2", last weigh-in was at 133lbs) and there should be room to grow. I do wish they came in short/long options because no matter how I adjust the fabric I always seem to end up with a little too much behind my knees, but the benefits outweigh the discomfort.
