THE CHARLIE - 7/8
Introducing the hardest working pair of pants in your wardrobe. Whether you're taking them to Pilates or rotating them for every activity over your weekends, with activewear as good as The Charlie, who needs regular clothes?
The Charlie is our signature seven eighth style - with that popular, flattering inner contrast panel - in two shades of black (the inner panel being a super gorgeous leather-look). In other words? Perfection.
The fabric is super lightweight - while remaining incredibly supportive - so you can wear The Charlie pants throughout your pregnancy and beyond, for however active you choose to be.
Like all of The Ten's pants, these beauties are designed to support you from the moment you find out you're pregnant, right through to the months after you welcome your baby into the world. Our signature belly band is made up of highly elastic Supplex fabric, so it will stretch with your changing body (and will hug it with just the right amount of support - never digging in to your skin), while also retaining its shape post-birth.
Wear them with ...
A plain white tee and sneakers of the moment for a park walk, or with a statement tea and slides for a morning out at the markets.
A bit about our fabrics ...
The Charlie is made from sustainable fabric made of a nylon yarn deriving from 100% of recycled materials. It is made with specifically high levels of elasticity so it has brilliant shape recovery power (as we know you'll want to wear these after your baby arrives). Complete ecofriendly, this fabric aims to promote a global respect of the environment.
It also provides:
- Freedom of movement
Guaranteeing the correct muscular compression that reduces vibration, supports your muscles during movements and decreases strain.
It's breathable, light, fast-drying, pilling and abrasion resistant.
It is soft, gorgeous and simply delicious to wear.
- Excellent coverage
We know you don't want to see your undies through your tights. So this fabric uses advanced knitting technology and construction, making it compact and dense, creating great coverage.
- UV Protection:
The tight knit also works as a filter against sun rays, ensuring a UPF 50+ protection factor.

A bit about The Charlie ...
The Ten Active is so proudly Australian owned, designed and made. The Charlie is named after our co-founder Amy's second son, Charlie, who was born just two weeks before these pants made their way onto the market. Just like these pants, he's a good looking, sweet, adorable little angel.
Further to my earlier disappointed review. I was since heard from the team at the ten active and they were super accomodating with great customer service, turns out it was a batch issue. Thanks for all the help
At the start of my pregnancy, I purchased the Charlie leggings. when I first received I wasnt overly happy with the fit or comfort but thought it would better when my bump had arrived. I have, now at 21 weeks, worn them only four times, they are firm at legs but where the stitching is supposed to sit under bump and along underwear line, they constantly slip. I now have a row of holes from having to pull them up constantly, very disappointing after 4 wears and the price paid. I did check measurements for correct sizing prior to purchase and weight has sustained apart from midsection.
Great experience with ordering and delivery. The tights are comfortable and nice material.
