We’ve talked at length about the difficulty of finding stylish maternity and nursing clothing in Hong Kong, so if you also want to reject the traditional tent-like tunic, head down Queen’s Road Central to check out the gorgeous options from new mama on the block, Mothers en Vogue.
This internationally distributed Singapore label looks after mothers with a comprehensive range of maternity and nursing wear made from soft, natural and eco-friendly fabrics that will keep you looking and feeling cool in the summer sun (we’d expect no less from our savvy Singaporean sisters who also suffer with sticky weather!) The label’s signature range X.TENDED is designed for maternity and nursing use, so you can stock up during pregnancy knowing that you’ll still be wearing these long after bub has arrived – making the pieces as practical as they are pretty.
Nursing wear is cleverly designed with discreet breastfeeding access for nursing baby in public or on-the-go. Such nursing garments are far more efficient, comfortable (and stylish) compared to the saggy, baggy tees that we’ve often had to layer while trying (and failing!) to discreetly nurse a flailing infant. In fact, the ‘nursing’ element is so subtle that we can see ourselves slipping into these wardrobe staples long after we’ve weaned – and praise doesn’t come higher than that!
Tots aren’t forgotten either, with unique baby onesies in natural and organic cotton designed for newborn boys and girls till 24 months, which make wonderful baby shower gifts! The gorgeous matching designs for mums and their girls up to eight years old from the Spring Summer 2013 collection is summer wear at its best, with natural floaty fabrics in feminine prints that somehow manage to be age-appropriate for both mama and her wee one.
Mothers en Vogue definitely gets our stylish Sassy Mama stamp of approval, so whether you are currently expecting or already have a nursing tot in tow, we think this will make for a very welcome addition to your summer wardrobe.
