Milkbar Active Leggings - Extra High Waist Shorts | Mauve


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.

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.

Fantastic pockets!!!

Deep pockets on either side you can fit your phone and other bits and bobs in - doesn’t feel irritating against the leg.
Comfortable to wear and flattering on the tummy.


These are so much better than the previous shorts I had from another brand. Love how it’s all one fabric and the fabric just forms to your body. Also the shorts don’t dig into my thigh. I’m 28 weeks pregnant and it helps give gentle support to my belly. Great colour too. I wear them under dresses to still have some support on my bump and it helps hide the popped out belly button
