Let’s be honest. The options for maternity clothes are not great. From weirdly cut t-shirts to tents that seem dedicated to hiding us from the rest of the world, it can be pretty frustrating to shop for clothes throughout these nine months. This is why I love stores that are dedicated to providing stylish clothes you won’t mind wearing throughout pregnancy. Hautemama does this exceptionally well. This store stays filled with pieces that will keep you feeling great about your wardrobe in every trimester.
Sue Smith started Hautemama Maternity back in 2003. Sue was pregnant and could not find clothing she would feel comfortable wearing into work. From then on, it became her mission to find designers who could provide clothes for every mom dealing with these same struggles. The pieces she chose were designed not only for pregnancy but also the months following delivery. Tops and dresses carried within the store feature designs with the nursing mama in mind. Meanwhile, the clothes are comfortable enough to accommodate that postpartum belly. The shop also committs to being environmentally friendly and invests in brands that will create a better future for your little one.
Hautemama offers stylish clothes in nearly every design. Their dresses and jumpsuits are roomy yet fashionable, and most of the busts are built with nursing access for once your baby arrives. Most of the pieces are easily convertible from maternity into postpartum clothing. Rather than rely on the tight ruching of most maternity brands, the majority of Hautemama’s clothing include material that will stretch with your bump while remaining flattering. The store offers jeans in a variety of styles. Whether devoted to your skinny jeans or prefer looser girlfriend jeans that give you plenty of room to move around, you have multiple options. The store allows you to sort by trimester to find styles for every point of your pregnancy. From cozy sweaters to stunning dresses, this shop has it all.
Hautemama has a huge selection of maternity activewear. You can find comfortable leggings for prenatal yoga or purchase a sports bra that will keep you supported throughout your runs and provide your baby with convenient nursing access after your delivery. The store also sells a variety of loungewear for those days when you don’t want to leave the house.
Hautemama sells a variety of belly bands that will smooth your bump and offer additional support through each trimester. You can find Bellabands in a variety of colors and with lace trimmings to dress up the bottoms of your shirts.
If you’re tired of the limited options most maternity sections provide, it’s time to check out Hautemama. This fabulous store was designed to give you a variety of clothing you’ll want to wear long after your baby’s arrival.
