Maternity Fashion

Maternity fashion has come a long way in the last decade. Pregnant women can now look effortlessly stylish and are spoilt for choice when it comes to maternity fashion. The concept of MotherLand is to provide stylish maternity clothes to pregnant women everywhere at affordable prices.

Why should I purchase maternity clothes ? - Kristen and I started MotherLand Maternity with a clear goal in mind - to provide affordable maternity clothes that are stylish, comfortable and up to date with the latest trends. Maternity clothes are designed specifically to cater to your growing belly and your changing shape throughout your pregnancy and beyond.

Can't I just wear larger sizes in regular clothes ? - You can, however, larger sizes in regular clothing will look big everywhere, not just in your belly area. Maternity clothes are designed to allow room for your expanding bump whilst still fitting you nicely across your shoulders and hips. Maternity clothes will ensure that you look stylish and chic, stretching in the belly whilst fitting your body nicely everywhere else. Maternity clothing is also a lot more comfortable than oversizes regular clothing which is really important during pregnancy, especially in the later months.

When will I need to start wearing maternity clothes ? - You will probably start noticing that your regular clothes are starting to feel a bit tight somewhere between 15 and 18 weeks into your first pregnancy. This can be much earlier for subsequent pregnancies. I started wearing maternity clothes when I was 18 weeks pregnant for my first pregnancy, 15 weeks for my second pregnancy and just 13 weeks for my third pregnancy.

What are the best fabrics to wear when I am pregnant ? - We suggest that you purchase maternity clothes made from stretchy, breathable fabrics that will cater to your changing shape and keep you cool. A good quality cotton or bamboo jersey is a great choice for casual maternity clothes such as tee's, tanks, maternity leggings and casual maternity dresses such as wrap dresses. Maternity pyjamas made from a stretchy cotton or bamboo jersey that will stretch over your growing belly, and then regain their shape are also a great choice. MotherLand stocks an extensive range of evening maternity wear made from more dressy fabrics such as satin/ spandex and polyester/ spandex  which are good choices for evening maternity dresses and tops.

Should I purchase breastfeeding clothes ? - Breastfeeding tops, dresses and sleepwear will allow you to breastfeed comfortably and discreetly which is especially convenient in public places. They are also very convenient during your hospiatl stay when medical staff and visitors are contantly visiting. I loved my breastfeeding pyjamas for late night and early morning feeds. My friend once said to me ' now that I have tried breastfeeding clothes I couldn't live withou them '. Breasfeeding clothes offer convenience, allowing you to breastfeed discreetly without exposing your breasts and belly. Breastfeeding clothes made from cotton jersey or bamboo jersey will keep you cooler and they are more effective at absorbing moisture than synthetic fabrics. 

What are your best selling maternity clothing items ? -  MotherLand has quickly become a popular shopping destination for pregnant and breastfeeding mums. Our maternity sleepwear and our maternity evening dresses are very popular. Our most popular individual styles in our maternity clothing range are our versatile maternity pants, our maternity wrap dresses, army green maternity cargo pants, essential maternity abd breastfeeding tee's, hot maternity jeans, polka dot maternity and breastfeeding pyjamas and our 10 way maxi dress.

MotherLand is expanding rapidly as pregnant women everywhere are discovering that maternity clothes can be affordable whilst still being stylish and trendy. Our maternity clothes are made from great quality, stretchy fabrics designed to cater perfectly to your changing shape throughout your pregnancy and beyond.

Maternity Fashion

Congratulations on your pregnancy ! Chances are that if you are reading this blog you have a baby on the way or a planning a pregnancy soon. We hope you have a lot of fun dressing up your bump during your pregnancy. Here are a few maternity fashion tips to help you extend your maternity clothing wardrobe and your budget further.

Maternity Tops - We recommend that you purchase some comfortable casual maternity tanks and tee's for those hot summer days during your pregnancy. As comfort is paramount during your pregnancy choosing maternity tee's that are made from natural fibres will help keep you feeling cooler, and as natural fibres absorb moisture a lot more effectively, you will ultimately feel a lot more comfortable during the warmer weather. Maternity tanks and tee's made from a stretchy cotton jersey or bamboo fabric are a great choice. You can easily mix and match them with your favourite pair of maternity jeans, shorts or maternity leggins. A light maternity tank is also a good choice to keep you nice and cool during your pregnancy if you are exercising.

If you are planning to breasfeed your baby choosing tops that are also designed for this purpose will allow you to save some money. Breastfeeding tops are very convenient for new mums on the run and will allow you to breastfeed discreetly in public places or when you have visitors dropping by.

Maternity Tunics - Maternity tunics with loud and colourful patterns will brighten up your bump. They look casually chic when paired with maternity jeans or maternity leggins. In winter they look great with a long sleeve maternity top underneath - they can be dresses up or down to suit the ocassion. Maternity tunics are also a good choice during the post pregnancy months whilst you are regaining your pre pregnancy shape.

Maternity Jeans - There is no doubt that most Australians love a comfortable, great looking pair of denim jeans. There is no reason why you should sacrifice your love of denim jeans during pregnancy. We recommend that you choose at least one pair of comfortable, sassy maternity jeans to wear throughout your pregnancy. Your maternity jeans will transcend seasons and looks as you mix and match them with your maternity tee's and tunics - you can dress them up with a cute pair of heels or boots or pair them with flats for casual outings.

Maternity Wrap Dresses -  Maternity wrap dresses are a versatile maternity fashion item. They can be dresses up or down and are suitable for the office. Short sleeve maternity wrap dresses can be worn with a long sleeve maternity top or turtleneck underneath during winter and can also be worn with leggings and boots.

Maternity Cargo Pants - Maternity cargo pants paired with a maternity tank or tee are perfect for casual summer outings during your pregnancy. If the weather is cooler you can wear them with a long sleeve maternity top or jumper. 

Maternity Trench Coat - MotherLands maternity trenchcoat is a winner with the fashion editors at Cosmopolitan pregnancy and is our most popular item purchased internationally. A maternity trench looks great with jeans or over any maternity outfit. It will give you a chic, stylish look.

Maternity Belly Bands - Maternity belly bands are designed to extend the life of your regular pants and jeans once you discover you are pregnant. They are also useful for creating a layered look by extending the length of regular tops. They are also suitable to be worn as a boob tube on those long hot summer days when you are lazing aroung the house during your pregnancy. You can also use belly bands when you are breastfeeding, instead of a bra, to hold breast pads in place.

Maternity Sleepwear - A comfortable pair of maternity pyjamas or a maternity nightie is definately worth paying for. Once you have a comfortable pair of maternity pyjamas you will wonder how you lived without them. A basic maternity nightie, such as our basic maternity and breastfeeding nightie, is a good choice for the labour ward. A lightweight pair of maternity and breastfeeding pyjamas will increase your comfort at night and keep you cool. Maternity and breastfeeding sleepwear made from breathable, stretchy fabrics, such as a good quality cotton or bamboo jersey, will keep you comfortable when you are breastfeeding, a time when your body tempreature rises. These fabrics are also more efficient than synthetic fabrics at absorbing moisture. 

Don't forget to pack some maternity and breastfeeding sleepwear in your hospital bag. MotherLand stocks a trendy, comfortable range of affordable maternity and breastfeeding pyjmas and nighties which make a great gift for your favourite mum to be.

The girls at MotherLand wish you the very best during your pregnancy. MotherLand is dedicated to providing a trendy range of affordable maternity clothes for mums to be everywhere !

What's Your Maternity Clothing Style ?

Being pregnant can be a great excuse to experiment with fashion while you have fun dressing up your bump. We asked one of our customers to tell us about their maternity clothing style ....... I loved dressing up my bump during all of my pregnancies. I chose maternity dresses that I could dress up or down to stretch my maternity clothing budget further. I also felt more daring with my maternity clothes feeling great in more feminine styles, adding a few more frills than I would normally wear and I loved wearing bold, bright colours. I also chose maternity clothes that I thought would be suitable to wear post pregnancy as I knew it would take a while to regain my post pregnancy shape. I had an overwhelming desire to dress up my bump.

I purchased 2 pairs of maternity jeans. Jeans are such a staple in most peoples wardrobes so a great pair of comfortable maternity jeans are a must. I chose maternity jeans that had a belly band attached which I continued to wear for 3 or 4 moths after my baby was born. I just rolled the belly band down and they were really comfortable. I paired my maternity leggings with soft, stretchy maternity tanks and a maternity hoodie for exercising in and then wore them with long maternity tops and flats for shopping and casual outings. I also wore my maternity leggings under dresses with boots in winter. There are loads of ways to wear maternity leggings. I also transformed some of my summer maternity dresses into winter outfits by wearing a long sleeve maternity top underneath with my leggings and boots. My most versatile outfit was my short sleeve maternity wrap dress (which I still wear now). I wore it in summer with flats or heels and then I added a long sleeve turtleneck underneath in winter. I also bought a comfortable pair of maternity pyjamas which I really appreciated during my hospital stay when I was breastfeeding with guests dropping in.
