Breastfeed in Style

There is no excuse for not looking lovely in hospital with the arrival of the new collection of maternity nightwear from Anita Maternity.

We love this new collection - although on the pricier side - we think it is worth the splurge.  Labour could be a tough old slog, so at the end of it you want something nice to wear, especially if you are accepting visitors.
Anita Maternity Nightwear has the advantage of being wearable for both pregnancy and breastfeeding.

One Maternity Bra fits All

Wow - we have found it, the maternity bra for ALL occasions - and we mean all!

This maternity bra can be worn in the day, slept in and even worn for breastfeeding.  So for a small investment you get comfort throughout your pregnancy.

The Anita Maternity Bustier for Pregnancy and Nursing is our new favourite product.

Made from a seamless microfibre with supportive interwoven reinforcement zones the bra has no itchy seams, no clasps and no hooks to irritate delicate skin.

The high stretch fabric expands amazingly and will fit from week 1 to post pregnancy.  Anita Maternity have always done a great range of seamless underwear, but the biggest complaint we used to get for the original bustier was the high neckline, that while offering great support, was a little too high to be worn under wrap dresses and v-neck tops.  This new bustier has a more flattering line for your beautiful d├ęcolletage.

Another benefit of this new design is the easy breastfeeding access. We know that many of you don't like fiddling with nursing bra clasps - so this cross-over design gets around this.

Have we convinced you yet!?

Film Star Maternity Looks

Paola Maria Nursing Clothes

We have gradually been doing a stock take at Everyday Maternity, doing it brand by brand.

So we thought we would write a little about each brand as we rediscover all our maternity and nursing clothes.  Yesterday we did the Swedish brand Paola Maria who design feminine breastfeeding tops for style conscious women.

Paola Maria Breastfeeding Tops

The company was set up by Paola Maria Friberg in 2004 after her own pregnancy. Whilst breast-feeding she found it hard to find something that was soft, comfortable and pretty so designed a new style of nursing clothes for the modern mother.

At the time she was unable to find a fashionable breastfeeding top and this lead her to create her own design.  She thought that the horizontal line under the bust with an overlapping and lower-part, was not specially made for the female figure. 

And therefore, wanted to design her own model that would feel like a normal top without an under-part and also be flattering for the figure. This is where she came up with the cross-your heart design that is typical of the Paola Maria Nursing Top.

There are also an ethical company and have always been engaged in the environment and children’s rights. This engagement is coloring both the organization and choice of production partners, so much so they have decided to give 1% of turnover to UNICEF and with this we all help to look after children´s rights and hopefully help children in undeveloped countries.  

All clothes from Paola Maria are produced in OEKO-Tex certificated fibres. All organic breastfeeding tops are produced and Organic GOTS certificated. Paola Maria only works with factories that keep the EU standard of employment and does not employ children.

We are proud to stock them.
