When would I choose high-band versus under-bump jeans?

Posted by Carissa Carleton on

It’s common for pregnant mamas to prefer one type of pant or another, and to stick with the style they first felt comfortable with. Some will fall in love with a high-band pant during a winter pregnancy for the extra warmth and comfortable hug around the belly. Then, as that pregnancy continues into warmer weather, that extra layer of fabric can get warm so they opt to switch to an under-bump pant or short. Some still find the high-band comfortable regardless of temperature, and therefore pants and shorts can be found in either style. A money-saving tip if you plan...

Are there any other uses for maternity clothing, other than just maternity wear?

Posted by Carissa Carleton on

It’s a common misconception that maternity clothing can only be worn while you’re pregnant, and that you’re investing in items that will only last you a few months. We can tell you that is most certainly not the case! Under-bump jeans are far more comfortable than regular jeans in everyday life. They allow for the normal fluctuations of weight gain/loss and bloating while staying comfortable and stylish. This means you can get the stylish look of jeans with the comfortable feel of leggings! Win-win! We think all pants should be made this way! You don’t need to be pregnant to...

Posted by Carissa Carleton on

No one says you have to have them, but they sure will help you stay comfortable! Pregnancy underwear is designed to accommodate your bump at all stages of pregnancy so you can avoid discomfort of underwear digging into your hips and belly. It is also great to have the extra stretch after you have the baby, and for the (likely) many months before you comfortably fit into your old undies again. Another essential for pregnancy underwear is being able to wear them with a pad in the many weeks following pregnancy with the oh-so-lovely lochia.

Why should I buy new clothes just to wear for a few months?

Posted by Carissa Carleton on

In the many months (or years) after your beautiful bundle enters in the world, it is almost certain that your pre-pregnancy clothes will not fit comfortably. Even if you haven’t gained much weight on top of weight from the baby, other bodily changes can happen which change the shape of your body. Most new moms continue to wear maternity clothing long after the baby is born, so they can continue to stay comfortable. If you truly want your new stylish clothes to last even after (or if) you return to pre-pregnancy shape and size, there are some key things to...
