DO YOU OFFER MATERNITY?

We want EVERYONE to have a perfect fit and that includes our strong Mummas!

Maternity is a custom add on available on ALL our leggings. You simply shop your thigh measurement to find your leg size, and then we add 2 band sizes PLUS an extra 10cm to the band height.

FIRST TRIMESTER; you can wear your normal exotica sizing; no need for custom maternity. This is because our regular bands have an already 15cm of stretch so they are comfortable for changing tummies!

SECOND TRIMESTER; Order your Maternity exoticas now. Wear your regular size Exoticas until they no longer stretch then change to your Maternity (depending on when you start to show).

THIRD TRIMESTER:  Maternity

TIP: Your non-maternity Exotica's are also great for POST PREGNANT TUMMIES as they offer comfortable tummy control. Our leggings are also suitable for Mumma's who have had a C section as our band seam sits low (under where a C section scar would sit meaning no annoying seam rubbing on tender areas). 

If you have any questions or need help shopping Maternity, pre & post pregnancy please give us a call on (07) 5471 0986
