Multifunctional Tshirt

If you follow me on Instagram then you would’ve seen my recent post announcing that my new multifunctional tshirt is soon to be launched for sale. If you don’t follow me, then what are you waiting for? go go go >>> follow <<<

When I was pregnant I was always complaining about how I could never find any maternity wear that I liked. It was all basic or grannified. I mean, I know I was on the path to becoming a mum and there are certain stereotypes of what mums should wear, but come on, just because I was becoming a mother doesn’t mean I wanted to add 10 years to my style.

I did a lot of searching for maternity wear in my first trimester looking for clothes that weren’t boring or styles that were on trend but I didn’t have much luck. Eventually I gave up and just ended up adapting everyday fashion with pregnancy accessories. These included a waist extender belt that I could fit onto regular jeans, but then needed a bump band to keep it covered and neat. (And so the layering began.) Maternity jeans can set you back £30+ per pair that you’ll only have use for for 8/9 months. After which, it’s kind of weird wearing maternity jeans when you’ve had the baby already don’t you think? 🤷🏽‍♀️

I started wearing 1-2 sizes larger in tshirts/dresses to keep me comfortable as I didn’t always fancy wearing a fitted top showing my bump. Especially in summer, it was just too hot to wear anything fitted except leggings. Then there was the hassle of finding a top long enough to cover the vaj and bum area because no one in their right mind is going to be wearing a thong in the middle of summer at 7/8 months preggers. So that VPL and possible camel toe needed to be covered!

When E was born and I started leaving the house and nursing outside, I realised how inconvenient a normal tshirt/top was when trying to nurse in public. By this time it was winter so I’m finding myself hiking my top up and my tummy is completely out brrrrrr. So I started wearing vests underneath which then became fiddly when trying to pull down at the strap to make it accessible for E to latch on. 🤦🏽‍♀️

I found myself back on the internet and in the stores looking for nursing tops for that extra convenience to be a bit more confident to nurse E while I was out. But, again….. there was not much that really complimented me and my style.

So here we are, a few months later with my own multifunctional tshirt design. It took a bit of encouragement from the hubby to get me going, but I’m glad he pushed me to do it. I guess when I thought he wasn’t listening, he clearly heard all the moaning I made about no pregnancy and no nursing clothes being of my taste and style. (He bought every point up that I had moaned to him about in his effort to persuade me to design my own 😬)

My design is made from soft cotton that stretches and grows with you throughout your pregnancy. It’s slightly fitted for a relaxed and supportive feel. It’s long enough to wear with leggings to avoid any camel toe or VPL awkwardness. It’s designed with invisible and conveniently zipped nursing panels on both sides. They’re machine washable and fade resistant so they can be worn way after your little bubba is born, cause it’s not about having to spend more money on extra clothes when bubba is born. Trust me, you’ll want to save that money for nappies! 👍🏽

It’s an investment piece. An investment of your comfort, convenience and style from the start of your journey through motherhood.

Stay tuned for the release of my “Mama Love Maternity Tshirt” and get it exclusively with me only.

  1. Who would buy this crap? And what do you mean that there’s nothing out there for moms? Clearly you have no fashion taste. And FYI, 100% cotton doesn’t mean its an investment. Any average Joe can purchase a 100% cotton top.

    1. Thank you for taking the time to spread your negativity. It’s people and comments like yours that make me even more determined to succeed with my goals.

      I guess I have to quote myself from two parts of my post and explain it to you in depth as you seem to have a problem understanding written text; “I could never find any maternity wear that I liked”….. “there was not much that really complimented me and my style.” This is me detailing MY journey and MY opinion on finding maternity/nursing wear. All the styles out there at the time were not appealing to me. Does that really translate to you as “there’s nothing out there?” Clearly there were maternity/nursing clothes out there, just not to my style.

      Speaking of which, my “fashion taste” may not be the same as yours but that doesn’t mean you have to be so rude. You might not like my design so just go about your day without being mean. Clearly YOU are not part of my consumer target market. You might think it’s “crap” but I already have pre-orders so…. yea people ARE buying them before they’re even officially on sale.

      Where did you read my tshirts were 100% cotton? If you can’t be nice then at least stop making things up. And to quote and explain again “it’s an investment piece. An investment of your comfort, convenience and style from the start of your journey through motherhood.” I thought that was clear enough considering the explanation is directly after the statement. No where did I write it was a “monetary investment” as you have misinterpreted.

      I was always taught that if you don’t have anything nice to say then keep your damn mouth shut!

      Hiding behind a screen, typing such a worthless comment and trying to make me doubt myself and ideas is just a pussy way of bullying. Don’t for one minute think it’s anything but bullying. You’re not being real, you’re bullying. You’re not being honest, you’re bullying.

      As you’re a “mom who knows better” you should already know that being a mother is hard and how judgmental people can be, so we should encourage each other. We are the best of parents to our children to the best of our knowledge and anything I do on this blog site is for my daughter so when you attack me with such a mean comment, I only hope that no one does it to you on your blog site, which doesn’t seem to even exist, so you’ve literally sat there and made an effort to be so ridiculous and pathetic.

      Kindness doesn’t cost a thing, you should try it sometimes and if you can’t, do EVERYONE a favour and don’t visit my site again.

      Bub bye hater.

  2. I can guarantee if you took this product onto something like dragons den you would get an investment. I think your product is fantastic, its stylish, cute and not like anything else on the market. To create something like this takes someone with a strong, creative, entrepreneurial mind. I also love the story behind it which millions of people will be able to relate to. You should be very prpud of your work, ignore those who dont appreciate it, they are nothing to you 🙂 xx

  3. Don’t be discouraged by these pathetic idiots who have nothing better with there time but spread negativity, I’m a new dad and along with my wife we find your blogging very helpful and can relate to your journey as we are currently experiencing .

    My wife loves your top and she one in line for a pre-order, we love what your doing maternity mama!

  4. Youre so cool! I dont suppose Ive read something like this before. So nice to seek out somebody with some original thoughts on this subject. realy thanks for starting this up. this website is something that’s wanted on the net, someone with a little bit originality. helpful job for bringing one thing new to the web!

    1. Thank you so much for the encouragement. It surely is not easy to be so honest about some of my experiences but I’m glad that it is helpful to someone. I started this site as a way to talk about my experiences as a new mum. I found it helpful when E was first born, reading other peoples experiences and suggestions as sometimes I was so helpless with what to do. You’ve just made my day. Thank you.
