Active Truth Review: Best Maternity + Postnatal Tights

Active Truth Review

Active Truth tights are squat-proof and don’t roll down when you’re on the move. They come in classic black and fun prints when you want to wear something a bit bolder. They’re super soft and comfortable, and I like the high-waisted design and support.

Best Active Truth Pregnancy and Postnatal Activewear 

Nursing Crop – Active Truth breastfeeding bras feature magnetic nursing clips for easy access while breastfeeding. I also love that it’s supportive, and the material expands with your growing breasts. It also has a UV protection rating of 50+. 

Postnatal Recovery Pocket Full Length Tight – These tights have pockets and are suitable to wear after natural or c-section deliveries. They offer support and compression for your postnatal recovery.

Maternity Tights – Whether you prefer bike shorts or full-length tights, Active Truth pregnancy tights feature a high-rise belly band that expands with you as you grow. They’re also squat-proof and have a UV protection rating 50+.

Sizing and Fit

They also have a maternity activewear collection with breastfeeding crops, pregnancy tights and compression-post-natal recovery tights. I used the size guide, and everything I ordered was a perfect fit. It’s also helpful that each product features different size models and lists their measurements to see what works for you!

Conclusion: Active Truth Review 

Tights – The high-waistband keeps your core supported, and they don’t bunch or roll down.

If you’re shopping for a sports bra, the Ultimate Crop is a good option. It runs true to size, and it’s supportive.
