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 !

Feel Good Throughout Your Pregnancy

Although you may be experiencing some typical pregnancy symtoms such as morning sickness during your pregnancy, there are some things that you can do to help yourself look and feel your best throughout your pregnancy. Drinking plenty of water, engaging in regular light exercise, eating a healthy diet, getting plenty of rest and pampering yourself from time to time will help. 

I loved taking walks along the beach and yoga classes throughout my pregnancy. They helped relax me and allowed me to reap the benefits of exercise. Light exercise throughout your pregnancy will also help you regain your pre pregnancy body after the birth of your baby more easily. When exercising during your pregnancy be sure to choose maternity clothes made from soft, stretchy fabrics that will move with your body and regain their shape afterwards. Maternity leggings made from cotton jersey or bamboo jersey fabrics are a great choice. You can pair them with maternity tanks suitable for exercise. A comfortable maternity hoodie is a great choice for warming up and down. Some maternity leggings have a soft elastic waist and are designed to be worn over your growing bump, whilst other maternity leggings are low cut and designed to be worn under your belly. You can then pair your maternity leggins with long maternity tops to stretch your maternity clothing budget further. Choosing maternity clothes that you can mix and match will extend your maternity fashion wardrobe further and save you money.

Your Post Pregnancy Body

 

I was flicking through some magazines on the weekend and came across some photos of some celebrity mums looking fantastic in bikin's just a few months after giving birth. I sat there wondering how they did it - hours a day in the gym (a bit diffcult with a newborn baby), great genes or some fancy photoshopping. Maybe I was just feeling a bit envious ..... either way, it takes most of us a while to regain our pre-pregnancy bodies after giving birth. It took me about 5 months after my first baby, about 10 months after my second baby and I am still working on it 2 years after the birth of my third baby. Although I am back to my pre-pregnancy clothing size I do have to choose clothing styles that hide my muffin top.

For this reason, the MotherLand maternity clothing range has been designed with the post pregnancy body in mind. Our maternity clothing range is designed to cater to the changing shape of your body during pregnancy and also look great after your baby is born. Our maternity wrap dresses, evening maternity dresses and maternity sleepwear all look great post pregnancy too. Our maternity pants are available in a few different designs. Some have adjustable waistbands, others have belly bands attatched that can be worn over your bump or folded down and worn underneath, whilst others have a wide elasticwaistband that sits comfortably under your belly - all of which are suitable to be worn post pregnancy.

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.

Maternity Clothing Essentials

Now is a great time to be beautifully pregnant. Maternity fashion has come a long way, especially in the last 5 years. Just ask your mum if fashionable maternity clothes were available when she was pregnant. I bet the answer is no. Fashionable breastfeeding tops and dresses are also readily available allowing breastfeeding to be a lot more comfortable and convenient for new mums on the go.

With an abundance of online maternity clothing stores at your fingertips there has never been a better time to look and feel fabulous during your pregnancy. With so many fashionable maternity clothes catering to all tastes and budgets there is no doubt that pregnant gals are spoilt for choice.

Our pics for an essential summer maternity wardrobe are two maternity and breastfeeding cammisole tops, two or three casual maternity tops, two or three pairs of maternity shorts or skirts, a pair of maternity cargo pants, a casual maternity maxi and/or mini dress, a pair of maternity swimmers and a comfortable pair of maternity pyjamas. If your a jeans girl, like me, a hot pair of a maternity jeans are a must all year round.

Our pics for an essential winter maternity wardrobe are two or three casual maternity tops, a pair of hot maternity jeans, a maternity jacket or coat, a couple of pairs of maternity pants and a pair of maternity pyjamas. Items such as maternity leggins, three quarter denim jeans and capri's will transcend seasons. Your favourite short sleeve maternity hoodie can also be worn with a long sleeve top underneath during cooler weather. Working mums to be will also need two or three pairs of office maternity pants or skirts plus a few suitable tops. Choosing colours and styles that you can mix and match will add versatility to your maternity wardrobe.   

Last, but not least, choose a couple of maternity dresses for those times that you feel like frocking up your bump. Go on, spoil yourself, you deserve it !

Helpful Tips When Purchasing Maternity Clothes

You don't need to spend a fortune on maternity clothing to look and feel fantastic. Choosing pieces that you can mix and match will add versatility and style to your maternity wardrobe without causing too much distress to your bank balance. If you are working in an office choosing corporate maternity wear that also looks great for a special day or night out will save you money. MotherLands sophisticated maternity dress is a great example of a maternity dress that looks stylish in the office and also looks fabulous for a special night out. It is also a great choice if you intend to breastfeed.

If you are intending to breastfeed, another handy tip is to purchase maternity tops, maternity dresses and maternity pyjamas that are also suitable for this purpose. Most of our maternity pyjamas are also designed for breastfeeding, as are our maternity nighties. 

Choosing maternity pants, where possible , that you can continue to wear during the post pregancy months is another helpful tip. Maternity pants, maternity cargo's and maternity shorts with adjustable elastic waistbands are a great choice both during your pregnacy and in the months following the birth of your baby.
