Ashley Graham Says She'S Struggling To Find Maternity Workout Leggings That Fit: 'Please Send Help!'
Being pregnant inevitably means that your body is going to change. But dressing the bump can be challenging in ways you might not think of — like trying to find maternity workout clothes that actually fit. Pregnant Ashley Graham is going through that struggle right now, and she’s asking the Internet for help.
“Please send help! Need pregnancy workout pants that go above my belly and are durable! And I want fun colors!! I have plenty of black,” she captioned a video of herself on Instagram.
“Pregnant women of the world. I have not yet realized that I’m growing out of all my stretchy pants. What workout pants do you work out in?” she said. Graham, who is expecting her first child with her husband Justin Ervin, revealed that her black underwear was sticking out and went through various scenarios of where she could put the waistband of her current pants, none of which were ideal.
“It hurts hitting right here,” she said, putting her hand up to her bump. “This is not okay.” Graham said it feels “okay” when her waistband is below her bump but “then it makes your butt look weird.”
“I need help,” she said. “Please tell us where I should get pants.”
The comments section of her post was quickly flooded with responses. “I got you!!! Coming your way @fabletics,” wrote Kate Hudson. “You literally made this look yours over the course of an hour,” said celebrity trainer Kira Stokes.
Fellow pregnant women and moms also shared that Old Navy, Target and Lululemon are some of their favorite options for maternity workout pants.
