I`m finding out about some rather unique places to buy maternity fashion online. Yes, there are the usual maternity shops on the high street but I have found that they are pretty few and far between, especially if you don`t live in London. For convenience purposes I love shopping online – I just don`t get time to shop for myself, it`s always for my clients!
I love the fact that most of these online boutiques have been started up by experienced mums who know what they`re talking about when it comes to functionality.
Kirsten is Bella Mama`s owner, she set up Bella Mama after she struggled to find pretty, practical and flattering nursing wear. Kirsten`s aim is to provide outstanding quality breastfeeding clothing and to offer the best selection of dual-purpose maternity and breastfeeding tops in the UK from one online store. It`s a small boutique specialising in chic, contemporary breastfeeding clothing and transitional maternity wear for new the mum to be. It`s not to be snubbed at, as it offers a quality selection of breastfeeding tops, dresses and maternity wear along with nightwear, loungewear, lingerie and accessories.
Breastfeeding in public is one of those things that is quite daunting for a new mum to be (something I`m not looking forward to!) so if you have the clothing that makes the process more comfortable then surely it`s worth investing in?
I have to say I love the 1 in the Oven 2in1 ribbed tank white (£39), it`s so versatile and will go with anything. It`s made of super soft cotton and has poppers on the shoulders for easy access and it provides a discreet layer that will cover you while nursing in public. In addition, it`s slightly longer length fits over a growing belly and is super flattering for a post-baby figure. We here at TopStylista think it`s a fabulous maternity must-have that you can wear throughout pregnancy and afterwards for discreetly breastfeeding in public.
One other item, which is a must-have is the Thalia Breastfeeding Dress in black (£45). It`s perfect for work, rest and play. Every new mum to be needs an essential LBD and this one is just divine. It`s made from a soft jersey fabric and is a fabulous wardrobe staple for any time of the year. Dress it up or down with gorgeous accessories to create stylish looks for any occasion.
We think Bella Mama provides exceptional quality and we`re delighted to be able to recommend this stylish online maternity boutique to the new mum to be! Happy shopping!!
