Choose your usual pre-pregnancy size in everything that you buy. Well designed maternity clothes have been developed over many years and tested to fit in all the areas where you grow during your pregnancy ie. bump, bust, hips, back and thighs. Do not buy the next size unless you are putting on a lot of weight.
Buy your maternity wear whenever you grow out of your normal clothes - that can be any time from 6 - 26 weeks pregnant. Our maternity clothes stretch and grow with you throughout your pregnancy to make the most of your growing bump. The earlier you buy your maternity clothing, the more wear you will get out of it - don't ruin your normal clothes by stretching them out of shape.
Don't buy a bigger size in normal clothes as it's a false economy. You can go through six different sizes during your pregnancy just to fit things around your belly and you will spend six times more money. The clothes don't fit you: they just make you look bigger everywhere when you aren't - you are pregnant.
You will have found shops that offer maternity wear at an incredibly cheap price. You probably think that it is worth it because you are going to wear these items for such a short time. But during your pregnancy you will buy fewer items and wear them a lot more. Cheap items will fall apart, stretch out of shape and no longer fit you at the end of your pregnancy.
Our maternity wear has been designed to last from early in your pregnancy until the birth of your baby and beyond. It needs to be good quality to go the distance. Do you want shrinking, bobbling or twisted seams? As with everything, you get what you pay for.
If you are one of the lucky few, you'll get straight back into your normal clothes after you have had your baby. However for the rest of us it can take months to get back into our usual size. Our maternity wear adapts so that you can continue to wear it after the birth of your baby.
We are a small business which is incredibly committed to personal service, has experience of wearing and selling maternity wear for over 17 years and a knowledge of our customers wants and needs. Many of our customers are recommended by previous happy shoppers. We intend to keep it that way!
