In this blog I often try to help you find clothes that are mama friendly, that is, “normal” garments that are suitable for pregnant and/or nursing women who love fashion.
But sometimes it’s worth to get some proper maternity and nursing items (specially bras and bottoms) so I decided to make a round up of the best online stores for affordable maternity fashion. Here is the list, and my favourite picks from each one:
What’s more convenient when you are pregnant than shopping your maternity clothes while you stock up in everything else you need?
An international powerhouse, it’s the safe place to go for affordable fashion for the whole family.
New Look takes maternity fashion seriously, stocking a wide range of belly-friendly clothing from great basic sets to pretty dresses.
Apart from their Maternity collections, they stock other well known maternity brands like Mama.licious, Isabella Oliver or Elle Macpherson Intimates.
Always at the forefront of trends, TOPSHOP Maternity is the perfect range for mamas who won’t let a bump get in the way to be the coolest girl in the room.
With a huge range of jersey tops and dresses, you can’t go wrong with GAP’s comfortable yet stylish pieces.
What do you think of this list, did I miss any shop you like? Where do/did you shop for your maternity wardrobe?
Free People is the place to go for funky, floaty tunics and dresses, and it comes to no surprise that some of the clothing is very mama friendly. (The first dress was seen in a stylish California pregnant celeb, for instance). Hope you like my choices!
These are 2 looks that I think are easy and fun:
Happy New Year people! Have you been keeping all those super ambitious resolutions? Erm, I didn’t get to finish writing them!
So New Year calls for a New Look right? Well, I think it’s a good excuse to get back to have a quick look at what’s at store in this shop, there are always tons and tons of great maternity basics and some cool finds too. Here is my selection, hope you like them:
1 New Look Maternity Burgundy Tea Dress // 2 New Look Maternity Black Colour Block Crepe Tunic Dress // 3 New Look Maternity Monochrome Stripe Crepe T-Shirt // 4 New Look Maternity Grey Double Zip Front Jumper // 5 New Look Maternity Navy Broderie Panel Tea Dress // 6 New Look Maternity Black Tile Print Sleeveless Dress
As a busy nursing mother, I know how time consuming can be searching for a pretty, on-trend and affordable dress that allows breastfeeding my child. Well, I made the hard work so you don’t have to, here is a dozen of breastfeeding friendly dresses from ASOS:
If your pregnancy and post-partum spans the cold months of the year, and your belly and baby weight don’t fit in your coat, it may be wise to think about getting a cape: forgiving cut, cozy warmth and a timeless, classic shape to wear for winters to come.

You don’t need to get a whole new wardrobe when you get pregnant. If you spend your budget wisely, you can acquire garments that you can wear before, during and after your pregnancy. Take these oversized tops for example; or the open cardigans and floaty kimonos.
If you (like me) love the loose top/ skinny bottom silhouette, what better than soft, stretchy and roomy t-shirt? Perfect to wear with a bump and then afterwards really easy (and discreet) to lift for nursing.
Don’t you love how she does it?
