Milkbar Active Leggings - Extra High Waist Shorts | Black


We have thought of all aspects of these active shorts to ensure you will want to live in them day in and out!

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!

Subtle detail - Cute wee Milkbar 'M.' logo makes for an understated pair of shorts you can match with anything!

Wear your way - Wear super high 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.

Size notes:

Laura is wearing a size medium, she is a size 10-12 in shorts/pants.


80% Nylon, 20% spandex.

I have two pairs of the long tights that I love and begrudgingly put them away for our next baby when they became far too big for me after giving birth… then I decided I needed shorts for summer and totally didn’t even think about milkbar til I saw an email pop up. Why didn’t I think about this sooner?! I arsed around for ages trying to find shorts that weren’t going to show what I had for lunch and had pockets and they were staring me right in the face! I ordered a size down since I’m post partum and have been back in short/legging heaven… oh it was a tough few months slumming it with Kmart bike shorts

Best maternity shorts

This is the softest material I’ve come across. It’s supportive for a growing bump but comfy enough for not just working out but wearing all day long.
