It’s really hard sometimes to find cute maternity clothes. It’s even harder to find cute nursing clothes. So hard, in fact, that I don’t actually own any designated “nursing” tops or dresses. Why is it so hard to make clothes that look normal that are nursing friendly? Generally, I just lift up my shirt or pull it down, depending on the collar-type. It’s WAY easier to wear things that can be pulled down (like a lower neckline) or have an easy-access boob slot if you’re nursing in public, whether you use a cover or not.
When I was contacted by Seraphine, an amazing UK-based clothing company, and asked to review and giveaway a fun maternity or nursing top, I was totally in! Their stuff is adorable and most of it can be worn during pregnancy and afterwards- it’s so stylish even celebs like Jennifer Garner and Jessica Alba are wearing their clothes. See how cute?
I chose this pretty Azure Pleated Nursing Top in blue, and it’s so nice.
The material is very luxurious and soft, and you can tell it’s very high-quality. The sizing is different since it’s a UK company, but they have a handy sizing chart on their site. I am wearing a 1, which is equivalent to a Small in the US. Here is how it works- it opens right in the middle of the decorative top portion, and you just pull it to the side for easy and discreet access.
I am super happy with my Seraphine top, and I would definitely order more clothing from them in the future! Shipping was surprisingly fast, considering it came from across the pond, it didn't take any longer than most items I order online, actually, which was awesome. They've also been nominated for best independent retailer at this year’s Drapers awards after winning it last year, if that tells you anything else about the kind of retailer they are... a really great one!
Also, because they're so fantastic, Seraphine would love for one of you to get a chance to win a piece of your very own, so they have generously offered up a $75 gift certificate to be used on their Web site! If you’d like to win, just tell me so in the comments. For an extra entry, visit their site and tell me what piece you’d like if you won the $75 credit.
This giveaway will be open for one week- good luck!!
