Milan Maternity {Giveaway}–CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

Think about your wardrobe: do you have at least one top that is so comfortable and so flattering that you can put it on with anything–dress pants, jeans, a skirt, sweat pants–and instantly feel glamorous, even if your hair is a mess and you have no makeup on? I found one of those tops from Milan Maternity, and to feel that way while also being pregnant is no small feat!

Milan Maternity is an online maternity boutique whose mission is “to provide designer style that flatters your new shape at prices you can be happy about.” And boy, have they got some cute styles! They have gorgeous tops–some that are dressy and some that are more casual–and don’t even get me started on the dresses! Super adorable. Most of their clothes can be worn before and after pregnancy, making them even more of a great deal! Here’s just a sampling of their cute collection:

collection

The shirt I chose to review was the Adriana in Bordeaux. This top is one of their “transitional” pieces that can be worn before and after pregnancy, and while nursing! There are hidden snaps and a shelf bra-type insert in the top that allow for convenient, discreet nursing while wearing the top. So much better than exposing my entire back and flabby middle while trying to feed a fussy baby! I can’t wait to wear this top with a tiny belly and try out the snazzy nursing feature.

snaps

The quality of this top is top-notch. The fabric is soft and stretchy and the ruching along the sides is long enough to to stretch over my growing belly (with plenty of room to spare!). It is well made and the style of the top is classic–I’m a total sucker for the faux-shrug style. My only complaint is that the “hidden” snaps for nursing end up showing more than I’d like them to. The fabric that is supposed to cover them gets bunched up, revealing the snaps most of the time. Surely a small snap on the outside to hold the extra fabric down over the snaps would solve this problem quickly, but it is one thing to be aware of.

This beautiful top sells for $39, which is a deal when you consider that you can wear this shirt for years and years to come, not just 6 months of pregnancy.

I am super impressed with Milan Maternity’s selection of maternity and post-maternity clothes and would totally recommend their clothes to anyone! You can only buy their clothes online, but they have excellent shipping methods and great rates. And one lucky reader will get to choose a maternity top of your own for FREE!

MommyLicious Maternity {Giveaway}

If you missed my maternity review yesterday, you also missed the fact that I said that because I am pregnant, I am focusing on maternity companies for my giveaways for the next few weeks. So if you’re pregnant, hold your bladders, because I’ve got several amazing maternity giveaways headed your way! Here’s the first of many maternity giveaways to come: MommyLicious Maternity!

logo

MommyLicious Maternity is a site dedicated to pregnant and nursing mothers. They carry affordable and stylish maternity tops, bottoms and dresses in regular sizes as well as plus sizes. Plus they offer nursing clothing, nursing pajamas, maternity bras, and maternity lingerie! These ladies are dedicated to helping you look and feel good while you’re pregnant and beyond! And their customer service staff is available to help you with any questions you have about their clothes, sizes, styles, etc. Check out some of the cute tops they carry below:

tops

I had a hard time picking just one top to review because there were so many different styles to choose from! I eventually decided to review the Yacht Bound Maternity Top in Teal/Banana. I love stripes, so this one immediately caught my eye. The teal/banana combo is so summery and since I will be pregnant all summer long I thought it would be perfect. The top also comes in peach/banana striped (also summery and cute!) and black/white striped.

shirt

I love the fabric of this shirt. It’s thin and lightweight, perfect for hot summer days. The material (100% Rayon) is soft and stretchy and glides smoothly over my big belly. The length is pretty long and can stretch down to my mid-hips, but because it’s a thinner material it usually creeps its way back up to the top of my hips after a few minutes.

tag

The neckline is a generous scoop but I didn’t feel it was too low to show off too much cleavage. In terms of size, I feel like it ran a little small. I was a medium pre-pregnancy, but since my chest has grown considerably in the last few months, the medium was a bit tight and I would probably feel more comfortable in a large. The good news is because it’s so stretchy, I will be able to wear it post-pregnancy and no one will know it was ever a maternity top (except those people who saw me in it every week for the past 6 months!).

casual

This top is only $19.99, and most of their tops run about $20-$30. These clothes really are pretty affordable and should last you through a few pregnancies, so go ahead and check out their collection of maternity pants, skirts, sleepwear and dresses–including bridesmaid and wedding dresses! One lucky winner will get $25 to spend on anything at MommyLicious Maternity!

Pink Blush Maternity {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Don’t tell my husband, but I’m actually getting so excited thinking about getting pregnant again!  Its not going to be for awhile, because “Little Brother” is only 9 months old, but they say that is the age where babies are just so cute that they make you want to have another!  Totally true.  I’m always thinking of the next great baby name, or the next bedroom arrangements for a family of five instead of four.  There are a lot of things I can’t plan just yet, but one thing I can plan on– I. Will. Be. Huge.  The last time I was pregnant, people could obviously tell when I was still in first trimester.  I’m sure the maternity clothes will come out earlier and earlier with each baby.  While I can’t do much baby shopping until we know if we’re having more boys or a girl, I can definitely do maternity clothes shopping well in advance!

A maternity clothes store I am pretty impressed with is Pink Blush Maternity.  They carry some super cute and trendy styles, often not seen in the maternity department.  I think they have a great selection that would please all sorts of style tastes.  You can find clothing that is form fitting and fashionable, as well as loose and comfortable.  They carry trendy maternity clothes like shirts and jeans suitable for every day wear, as well as more formal dresses and skirts.  You really could get your entire maternity wardrobe at Pink Blush Maternity and not break the bank while doing it.  Most of their tops are under $30, dresses around $35, and bottoms as low as $18.99.

4506_1_I had a terribly hard time narrowing down my favorites from Pink Blush Maternity.  Everything is just so dang cute!

I decided on this navy beige stripe maternity maxi dress because I love the simple design, long length, classic colors and versatility.  I tried on the dress and it is so cute and comfortable, and I would actually wear it to church this Sunday if it wasn’t just a little long in front.  Add a bump, and it will be just exactly right, come pregnancy!  Great stretch!  You wouldn’t even guess it was maternity clothing.

If you’re pregnant, go take a lunch break and pick out an outfit!  If you’re feeling a little baby hungry, go pick out a few things just to be prepared!  And you’ll love that $5 flat rate shipping!  (Free with orders over $50)

One lucky mama (or mama-to-be) is going to win $25 to spend at Pink Blush Maternity!
