For women who are seeking an all in one product which will provide light to moderate support to the lower back, hips, pelvic, and full leg region, we highly recommend the 2XU prenatal active maternity tights. Designed by a trusted and highly sort after brand, the 2XU range of pregnancy and postnatal compression garments combine a moderate level of support with a high quality product that is both comfortable and flexible for the wearer. The fabric feels fantastic and the support is strong enough to aid with most light to moderate pregnancy aches and pains. For women suffering mild varicose veins in the legs and/or vulvar varicosities, these will help boost circulation and reduce the symptoms of these conditions. These tights are also a great option for ladies who suffer fluid retention or tired legs from extended periods of standing or walking. Women who do not like to feel constricted over their belly may not like this product since it does cover your entire belly below the bust. For women with moderate to severe pregnancy complaints, you may need a more specialised and structured product from our range. If you have moderate to severe varicose veins, you will likely need a firmer style of compression stockings.
