Bump and I at Old Hills Common, Worcestershire over the weekend
What do you normally think of when you think of maternity clothes? Frumpy, flowery, unattractive, tent like or boring possibly. Well, maternity clothes have improved a lot in recent years but some clothes manufacturers still think that women want to hide their bumps, not show them off. I am 24 weeks pregnant now and I love my showing my Bump off, especially when I go out for special occasions.
I have been lucky when it has comes to maternity wear as I have a blog sponsor in the form of Lush Mummy. Lush Mummy was set up by Amy and Anna, two sisters who work in the City of London who both got pregnant and then could not find anything to wear that they liked, that was suitable for in the office. As they originally came from Korea and already had clothes brought over from there for them. They started ordering maternity/breastfeeding clothes for themselves and their friends too and this is how Lush Mummy got started.
I have been wearing their clothes now for a couple of months and I have been very impressed with the quality, the style and the price. My absolute favourite item is the Diamond Dress in black. I love it! I have been looking for a proper little black dress for years and have finally one. I would wear it if it I was not pregnant as the fit is that good. I feel fabulous in it. I highly recommend it!
The second dress I have been wearing is the Peachy Orange dress. I wore this during the day at my friend Ali’s wedding in Somerset, a week and half ago. I changed into the Diamond dress on the evening as it is more suitable for partying. The peachy orange dress is good quality but the cut is larger than the diamond dress so more suitable for bigger bumps than mine currently is. It was slightly on the large size for me but no one could tell and I got lots of lovely compliments for it. I am sure it will look great as my bump gets bigger throughout the rest of the summer.
The third item I have been sent is the Pandora maternity/breastfeeding top. This top goes well with jeans, trousers or leggings and has a stretchy band that goes around the waist showing your bump off really well. It has discrete zips for breastfeeding that are well hidden under a floaty material layer at the top. This top will last you throughout pregnancy and beyond. I really like the top, although it took a bit of getting used too as I do not really wear floaty material things. I love how it shows the bump off though and cannot wait for the next chance I get to wear it!
Thank you to Amy and Anna for sending me these lovely clothes. It is much appreciated
This is how I have been rocking my bump. Please come and tell me how you have been rocking yours
