Four Way Stretch for Movement
Our bodies change a lot during pregnancy– that’s why when sourcing pants, I am looking for something that is comfortable and can easily change as you do.
The NEW GENES Lynx Legging is a blend of Spandex and Lycra that provides a four way stretch for movement. We encourage you to wear these to your next pregnancy yoga session or just to the park to chase toddlers and pick-up sippy cups. That Spandex Lycra blend is the perfect combo for any activity.
Moisture Wicking Power
Is there anything worse than a legging that leaves you damp and uncomfortable? Not with the New Genes Lynx Legging because the fabric features Go-Dry moisture wicking technology to keep you dry and comfortable. These leggings will carry through all the seasons with comfort and ease for all of your favourite activities.
Full Belly Band
There are so many leggings with insufficient belly bands, and we know that you are looking for the best and biggest most comfortable maternity legging belly. The New Genes Lynx Legging does not disappoint offering a full high waist design that is squat proof.
The belly band can be worn open for full coverage or fold it down for extra support during pregnancy or in the post-partum support. Many parents love the little bit of compression in the soft stretchy spandex.

From Pregnancy to Postpartum
These leggings are not just for pregnancy; they are designed with the post-partum in mind to help you transition from the office to the playdate. New Genes brand philosophy is “a women’s body is changing but her lifestyle doesn’t have to” and that’s the magic of these leggings is that they will help you carry your baby for 9 months and give you the high-rise comfort you need in the fourth trimester.
And don’t forget to pack these leggings in your hospital bag because they will fit comfortably over that new belly and have low enough seams to protect a c-section incision (no unnecessary rubbing or irritation). Fold the band in half for a little extra support.
Handmade in Vancouver
Aly is a mama and seamstress in Maple Ridge, BC, that handmakes these leggings with love and a humour. We are proud to support Canadian businesses like Aly because it means support local economies, ethically manufactured products, and a little extra love into every garment.
We have a lot of choices when it comes to providing you with the right support for your changing body, and we couldn’t be more excited to find leggings made in BC.

How to care for your New Genes Leggings?
All New Genes garments are machine washable and can be tossed in the dryer on low, but for best results hang to dry.
We recommend washing the leggings inside out with cold water and similar colours. If you are concerned about fading, a phosphorate-free detergent will reduce long-term fade of the leggings.
