Milkbar Active Leggings - Extra High Waist 7/8 | Black


Hey Mama! Are you looking for the perfect Maternity legging that doubles as a postpartum recovery tight? Look no further.

We have thought of all aspects of these leggings to ensure you will want to live in them day in and out - so much so, we've nicknamed them the Mumlife pant in the office!

Super high waist - To keep your bump or postpartum tummy comfy and supported.

Pockets! - Keep your phone, iPod, Keys, Coins, spare dummy, all nearby.

Optimal compression - Put this pair of leggings on when you are feeling fatigue in your legs, hips, belly during or after pregnancy and feel immediately supported, without feeling suffocated.

Soft, Stretch Fabric -  The soft stretch fabric is made to last the distance, and allow for free and unrestricted movement during exercise or play. Tried and tested to ensure zero pilling even after a tonne of wear and they wash perfectly back to shape!

7/8 Length -  A perfect, easy to wear length all year round.

Subtle detail - Cute wee Milkbar 'Mb' logo on the ankle gives for an understated pair of leggings you can match with anything!

Wear your way - Wear superhigh or fold the top of the waist down for a mid rise pair. Plus with the use of all one fabric it allows you to wear this pair with a cropped tank or tee in style.


80% Nylon, 20% spandex.

Washing instructions:

  • Cold machine wash with similar colours.
  • Use a wash bag to protect your leggings from other items.
  • Don’t iron, tumble dry or dry clean.
  • Don’t use fabric softener as this can affect the compression.
  • Line dry in the shade.

Super comfy

I live in these tights. Had to buy a second pair in black after getting the navy ones. So comfy! Have been wearing these tights from about 14wks to 28 wks and they're great

Comfort first!

Love how high waisted they are and don’t roll down like other tights. The 7/8 length is perfect (I’m 174cm) but I prefer the fabric of the first pair I bought in 2019. I’m not sure if it’s been changed but it’s noticeably different. I have rough hands and they catch on my new ones - eek!

love these

Amazing comfort cant take them off!

Buy them

I got some of these maternity tights and as someone who has tried tons of brands of tights pre pregnancy as well as in my last pregnancy … milkbar ones are 100% the best!!!!
The pockets. The price and the comfort.
They feel like lulu aligns but not for $159 and with preggo bellies in mind. Also love that they aren’t too shiny.
I’ve now ordered another 2 pairs. I’m a size 18 and got the XXL

Butter soft essentials

These are my all time favourite leggings— and I’ve just purchased another pair when they came back in stock. I wore my first almost every second day of my pregnancy and postpartum and they still look as good as new! There’s no fading, no signs of wear and are super supportive for both a pregnancy and postpartum belly. I love that they aren’t shiny and are a butter soft material cause you can casually dress these as part of an outfit rather than just for activewear— win!
