During my first pregnancy, I bought all my maternity clothes in stores so I could see all the items in person. Sounds like a great idea, but it severely limited my selection and I ended up with stuff I didn’t really LOVE but got just because I needed something that would fit. So this time around, I’ve been doing most of my shopping online and have been really surprised with the huge selection out there! I haven’t had any problem with sizing either, which was my main concern during my first pregnancy.
A Mother’s Boutique is one of the online shops I came across while shopping for maternity clothes online! Not only do they have a great selection of maternity clothes, they’ve also got nursing clothes, slings, breast pumps, and nursing bras. It’s a great one stop shop for any expecting and new mother. If you’re in the Pittsburgh area, you can also visit the retail shop! I envy those of you who do! Whether you visit the retail store or shop online, one thing that we can all benefit from is their list of helpful resources and links for breastfeeding mother’s. I found some great sites I wasn’t aware of before! Even if you’re not breastfeeding, there’s tons of other resources listed, too!
Judy, from A Mother’s Boutique, sent me the Inez Tunic to review! It’s manufactured by Annee Matthew and is just lovely. I wear it at least once a week! And……it’s also a nursing shirt, so I’ll be able to wear it afterwards, too! I love when clothes do double duty! I also really love the band that’s underneath the bust line. I find that this style tends to look better on me and gives me some definition between my growing belly and bust line. It’s also got the pull aside nursing access for easy breastfeeding and I can’t wait to try out this feature this summer with my new baby. Eric wasn’t crazy about the print, but I really like it. It’s got a little geometric print to it and I find it’s subtle and not too bold.
The quality of the shirt is great. I’ve washed it many times and it still feels as soft as the day I got it in the mail. It’s made from an eco-friendly material called lyocell (a regenerated wood pulp), that’s resistent to wrinkles! A plus for me as I despise ironing! It fits great, too! I got the size small and it’s nice and long to cover my belly. I’ve got a lot of other shirts that I’m constantly tugging on to cover my belly and I don’t have to do that with this one at all! It’s a great overall maternity/nursing shirt and I’ve got no complaints! Customer service was fabulous, shipping was fast, and they even included some pamphlets on breastfeeding with my order!
BUY IT: You can purchase the Inez Tunic, like the one I reviewed, on A Mother’s Boutique Website for $79. It’s a little more expensive than most of my other maternity shirts, but it’s of great quality and can be worn long after pregnancy which makes it worth the price in my opinion! It comes in both black (like I reviewed) and grey and in sizes XS-3X. You can currently purchase the Inez Tunic for 30% off which makes it much more affordable at around $55 by using the code INEZ30 by June 30, 2012.
