PRAM-A-SPORTER: Get fit, look hot
We have to exercise, it’s the law. May as well look hot.
Tender boobs can ruin your savasana, so for mamas-to-be on the yoga mat, a good bra is a kit-bag essential. Bravado’s Body Silk seamless yoga bra is oh-so soft yet super-supportive with a tech fabric finish, meaning no sweaty cleavage. Hurrah! And for new mums, Cake Maternity’s Lotus Bra (£30, cakematernity.com) has a fold-down layer making it perfect for a post-Pilates feed. Just add Om. Body Silk Yoga Nursing Bra, £34, bravadodesigns.eu
Nothing brightens up a winter morning’s jog (yes, that includes the nursery run) like in-your-face neon, so we love Matalan’s new Souluxe label for high-vis, high-style fitness wear for all the fam. Colour-clash combos of electric blue, fuchsia and yellow mean no one’s getting lost in a hurry.
Souluxe separates, from 6yrs up, from £7; matalan.co.uk
Blasting out music and throwing shapes boosts endorphins and guarantees a chuckle from baby. Reebok champions this behaviour with its boogie-inspired fitness line. Think metallic vests, cropped hoodies, shiny high-tops and attitude.
There’s nothing like pulling on a pair of shorts to make you feel sporty – even if you’re no Jess Ennis. But, quite frankly, it’s freezing out, so the only sensible way to rock a short right now is over leggings. The laidback athleisure wear from Every Second Counts majors on layering pieces, so can take you from spin class to soft play to sofa. No wonder – the label’s creator is a busy mum, so she knows a thing or two about fast-moving mamas. This Time vest, £75; Speed shorts, £78; Catch Me leggings, £46; all everysecondcounts.co.uk
While we welcome the flattering effect of black sportswear, it’s a bit... yawn. So up your gym game with OTT leggings. Take your pick of directional designs on the high street, or be bold in peacock and tribal patterns from Onzie (onzie.com). Bonus: throw on a denim shirt and Nikes for a rad look when hanging out with your little one.
