For most women, one of the many joys and frustrations of pregnancy is finding a whole new wardrobe to accommodate that growing belly. Motherhood Maternity store makes this transition easier though. It's a one stop shop where you'll find everything you need to not only dress the part of a mother-to-be, but also look stylish doing it.
A Store is Born
Originally a mail-order catalogue company, Destination Maternity Corporation has emerged over the decades as the brand women rely on when they're expecting.
Motherhood Maternity was created by Rebecca Matthias, who realized that the fashion industry needed more stylish maternity wear. She founded Motherhood along with several other brands - such as A Pea in the Pod and Destination Maternity - in 1993. Since then, Destination Maternity Corporation has grown into the world's largest retailer of maternity clothing.
Motherhood Maternity store is able to offer the most up-to-date fashions thanks to their design team. Over 90% of their products are designed by the company itself, and are distributed from the USA and Canada.
Here are some hand-picked items I highly recommend looking into. You'll find all of them at Motherhood Maternity's online store motherhood.com.
Self Belly Super Stretch Boot Cut Maternity Jeans
Even pregnant ladies need a good pair of jeans. These medium wash bottoms will become your go-to pair for everyday use. As stylish as a teen's pair of jeans, they come with five pockets, trendy patches on the back pockets and rivets. Made from stretchy spandex.
Spaghetti Strap Scoop Neck Shelf Bra Maternity
This basic tank is a necessity. Layer it under a sheer blouse or wear it by itself. One nice feature is the built-in bra, something I personally believe all tank tops should come with. At just under $13, you can stock up on extras and always keep one on hand. Get one in every color! (Black, light pink, and white.)
The Tummy Sleeve by Motherhood
This patented invention exclusively by Motherhood works like Spanx (a brand of shape wear) for your baby bump. Slide it over your belly and it'll provide excellent support and can even cover those non-maternity jeans you may be wearing unbuttoned to fit. One size fits all and it's under $20.
Secret Fit Belly Tweed Cuffed Wide Leg Maternity Pants
The perfect work or dress pant with Motherhood's own trademark Secret Fit Belly support fabric. Secret Fit Belly glides over your stomach much like The Tummy Sleeve to smooth out lines, whether you're nine months pregnant or just gave birth. Combined with the machine washable tweed pants, you'll wear them everywhere. Comes in black and brown.
Prices You Can Afford
Preparing for a baby can take a lot of money. What little you have left you probably won't spend on expensive designer clothing. The people at Motherhood realize this and price their apparel accordingly. You'll find that many of the items on their site cost around twenty dollars - a real bargain, especially when you're buying clothes twice your size that you'll only wear for the duration of your pregnancy.
