Good morning! I hope you all had a great weekend.
As I’m nearing the end of my pregnancy, I’m finding (again) that workout gear doesn’t have to be expensive or even maternity to fit around a 8 or 9 month belly.
I like to splurge on a few nice pieces, but Target® is one of my go to places for affordable (yet cute) running gear. I was excited to have the opportunity to try two pieces the last few weeks and found both can work for pregnancy (and will fit beyond as well). This tank top and shorts are from the Target® C9 collection:
The tank top is long enough to stretch over my belly and is perfect for summer running. I went up a size to ensure it would have a little extra room but it didn’t feel too baggy. The mesh tank stays nice and cool, and has wicking material. It also has a built in shelf bra (although I like to add the pads from another bra for extra support). I also love the color options and the cute back.
The shorts surprised me with this extra band that has some give to stretch around my belly.
They are also moisture wicking, with an inner lining and a small, front inner pocket. Another plus is that they have reflective lines on the sides to improve visibility on early morning runs.
Both pieces are versatile enough for any kind of workout. The day I got them, I tried them on and ended up wearing them for the rest of the day without ever getting in a workout in them. They were too comfortable to worry about changing!
The tank top also worked out great for my sweaty spin class:
Besides running, I plan to continue my strength workouts as I transition into marathon training mode this fall. PopSugar put together a summer workout for toning your shoulders. It’s only five minutes, but you’ll be feeling it!
