Seraphine Postnatal Leggings Review

After I had Isla I tried to keep wearing maternity leggings and jeans until my body started to return to normal but they just didn't fit right. They were too big and my normal pre pregnancy jeans were a bit too small, the usual dilemma after giving birth!

I'd read about postnatal leggings that encourage your muscles to knit back together and your uterus to contract back to where it should be so I began a hunt to find a pair.

I'd read about Mothertucker leggings on another blog but they were a US brand and a bit expensive/hard to source. A lot of the ones I came across were either from America or just not suitable - i.e. shorts instead of full length.

Then I went on Seraphine's website and found these beauties:


They're only £25 which I think is a bargain for the quality of Seraphine's clothes.

I ordered mine and they arrived within a week. When I opened the parcel I was glad there had only been size M/L available because they looked small! I'm a size 10 normally and these fit perfectly for me...


It takes a bit of effort getting into them the first couple times but they are so worth it. They streamline your body and help you feel a bit more confident about the way you look. You can feel them pulling all your muscles together to where they should be and they also support your back which is great when it's feeling a bit weak after giving birth!

High waist band.


They have a gummy (can't think of a better way to describe it) strip to help keep them up.

A very attractive photo haha!

They come up quite high and stay up really well. 


What mum tum?! Haha, until they come off...


All in all it's the best £25 I've spent on clothes in a long time. Very worthwhile investment for your postnatal wardrobe.

  1. They sound amazing, after my section I lived in my maternity dresses and maternity tights but I can imagine they were a lot more comfortable #binkylinky

  2. These look so comfortable. I love the high waist, great for smoothing over and hiding a mum tum. Thanks for linking up to the #binkylinky

  3. Great idea. They look very comfortable and anything that helps contain the post baby tummy has to be good!

  4. These look great! I wish I'd have known about them 11 months ago lol

    Have to add, I'm like a perpetual 12 year old and giggled out loud at the Mothertucker bit! #binkylinky
