Frequently Asked Questions

Are the leggings safe for pregnancy?

Yes! All our materials are certified Standard 100 by OEK-TEX, meaning they are perfectly safe for the body. The compression is designed to support and not squeeze - with more than enough stretch to accomodate your growing body safely.

Which length should I choose for my height?

If you are 165 cm or less we recommend to choose the 7/8 length for a full length look.

 What is the material like?

We use a high density stretchy fabric that feels smooth to touch and soft on the skin with a matte finish.

Do they get a lot of fluff and hairs stuck on them?

No! We spent 12 gruelling months designing these leggings and making sure they stayed soft and smooth and clean was not negotiable!

Stitching to Reduce Irritation

We only use flat lock stitching because it is strong and does not cause skin irritation.

The waist seam is designed to go around the "belly baby bump" - not to cut through it.

Materials and Fabrics

Made from the emamaco Supaflex fabrics used across our maternity range, the leggings are smooth, super soft, breathable and fit like a second skin.
Our emama signature maternity range are made from a Soft, High Density, Easy Care stretch compression fabric.

Emama maternity shorts and leggings are durable and designed to last through all stages of pregnancy.

Giving you coverage that fits and feels like a second skin.

Engineered to stretch with your growing belly without that restrictive squashed in tight feeling allowing your skin to breathe and move around freely but feeling lifted and supported at the same time. This unique design promotes core stability, reducing pregnancy aches and pains for an easier pregnancy!

Material is a custom Nylon and Elastane blend

please note some sizes have our updated emamaco logo at the back
The new logo is just as small and unobtrusive as the old.

Size Guide

Maternity emamaco Leggings and shorts range:

We recommend to pick your size based on your pre-pregnancy size and your hip measurement. 

We find that in most cases everyone will fit 2 sizes depending on whether you like a super tight fit or a snug fit.

The most accurate way to get fitted is by measuring around the widest part of your hips around the centre of your bum. Just Like in the photo below.

If you are in between sizes you can choose whether you would like a tighter or a snug fit.
For example, if your hip measurement in 100cm and you are normally a size 8, then you would choose either:
- XS for a tighter fit
- or S for a snug fit

If you find when you receive the leggings they feel super tight don't worry they are a compression fabric so they are meant to feel tight. After a couple of hours of wear they will shape and loosen with your body. But if you put then on and they are feeling super tight to the point they are too restrictive or too uncomfortable then we recommend to size up.

If when you try them on for a couple of hours walking around the house if you notice they are slipping down or falling at the crotch it means you need to size down.

Please note that our size chart is a guide and everyone and every body shape is different. In most cases you will only need only one size for your whole pregnancy but some people do need to size up towards the end of their pregnancy.

If you have any questions about sizing and pregnancy please send us your question on our contact us page here.

We are also happy to book you in with one our fitting specialists via a skype consultation.

Here is our leggings and shorts sizing Guide:

Please note that the size chart is just a guide and everyone and everyshape is different. During pregnancy our bodies can change dramatically and some people may need 2 sizes to last their whole pregnancy.

Lived in this shorts!

I've tried a few maternity brands, and both pregnancies I've ended up always choosing the Emamaco Bike shorts for the most comfort. They're comfortable right through the end of the third trimester with the lower front hemp and super high rise, not digging into the bump at all.

Rachael Lappin
Maternity outfit

Could not be happier with the style, comfort and feel of this set. Perfect fit

Brooke Johnson
Poor service

I would be reluctant to purchase from Emamaco again; long wait times to receive product (I also received incorrect order for the second half of my delivery). Difficult to get prompt response as the only way to communicate seems to be via email.

Violet Martinsen
So comfy

Wish I bought these sooner, so much support. Very impressed with the design too… no cameltoe 😮‍💨

Anna Thomas

Was very impressed with the shorts. Extremely comfortable and true to size.

You read that right - we custom make all our own fabrics. So all our leggings, shorts, 3/4s - well just all of them are so ridiculously smooth that pet hair doesn't stick to them. It's so amazing for our pet peeps that even Women's Health Australia wrote an article about it!

Worried about your environmental footprint? So are we.

We will always work on this.
But So Far:

  • We've eliminated printed receipts that get sent with every order
  • We run a paperless office
  • We use recyclable plastic bags
  • We use as many postage bags made out of recycled plastic as possible
  • Maternity clothes aren't forever. So we collect old maternity clothes and donate them to a women's health shelter
