HOLIDAY WORK PARTIES

MH BLOG HolidayWorkParty 2018 v3

This is for our corporate mamas, the ones who hold down the nine to fives and then some. The holiday work party comes but once a year. However, it doesn’t look the same for everyone, of course! There are the “parties” that happen on your lunch break, in the company kitchen with homemade cupcakes and sparkling cider when you are still #clockedin. That’s okay. Don’t feel blue; dress in blue.

We have the outfit you need to add some light and life: the tie waist maternity top with a gathered cuff design in teal blue. [This also comes in a burgundy floral print.] Add a black pair of maternity pants, or if your office leans on the casual side, a nice pair of black maternity jeans.

Is your work party #outofoffice? Okay, so this is your chance to dress up. The featured puff sleeve velvet maternity dress is the epitome of LBD, which can also stand for luxurious black dress. Put your bump on display, grab a mocktini and get ready for all the compliments. Your boss may even give you one. Unless, of course, you are the boss.

SO MUCH (MORE) TO CELEBRATE

MH BLOG So Much To Celebrate v1

Sometimes we forget just how incredible being pregnant is. The daily stressors of life get in the way of taking a much-needed moment to sit back and think about how wonderful you really are. You are creating life. What in the world can possibly be more astonishing than that? Whether this is your first time being pregnant, or you’re expecting a fifth child… the human body never ceases to amaze. At the end of the day, you are the reason to celebrate.

Everything may seem to get bigger when you are pregnant, from of course your belly, to your boobs, your butt… all body parts apparently starting with a B.  However, just like the Grinch himself, your heart grows too. It is said that your blood volume can increase by 30 to 50 percent when pregnant, helping your heart rate increase to pump more blood. So, with your bump and heart growing, it’s time to treat your closet to the same. Make your wardrobe grow with help from these celebratory maternity styles.

MORE EARLY STOCKING STUFFERS

MH BLOG EarlyStockingStuffers 2018 v1

These stockings were certainly hung with care. We know that Christmas and Hanukkah are next month, but is it ever really too early to get ahead of the shopping game? We think not, which is why our early stocking stuffers suggestions are here for you NOW!

Our first early stocking stuffers post was all about little gifts for your little gift, aka the baby! And although we still love the Wubbanub, these stocking stuffers are really more for mama. To begin, we shall start at the bottom… and by that we mean your feet. Pregnancy makes you achy and a lot of times your swollen ankles need a break. Give your toes something cozy to slip into with our newest faux fur slide slippers (shown in blush pink and grey) or any of our hospital socks that feature sayings like, “If you can read this, I’m about to be a mom.”

Now work your way up and give your legs super soft maternity leggings, which pair so well with any of the graphic maternity tees and our holiday maternity sweaters. We’ve literally pinned two for you: the mama and baby polar bear sweater and the Santa Baby red sweater. Oh, and that red, green, gold-bowed gem our model is wearing? That’s our Christmas present bow maternity sweater. Because let’s be honest, you and your beautiful bump are the present!

Happy shopping. Stay tuned all month long for more posts featuring gift ideas.

CRAVINGS & CLOTHES

MH BLOG Savory vs. Sweet v1

Food definitely comes in and out of fashion. Kale had a couple of years, avocado toast seems to be the best thing since sliced bread, and microgreens are having a macro moment. And of course, there’s the pulse of social media making food so stylish that we like, share, and repost lunch like it’s runway ready. For us, we are dishing up [pun totally intended] cravings and clothing that are sweet, savory, salty and stylish. What are better pairings than these?

Sweet pomegranates are literally bursting with juicy flavor and color. The deep red seeds are a little tart, and totally stunning on camera. We love the way they look with shades of wine, mixed berries and dark reds. The super soft hacci knit maternity dress is one we love in any shade, but this burgundy/black number is trending right along with the autumn fruit. You’ll love it so much you may just want it in grey, teal or olive too.

Sweet is nice, but savory is downright satiating. Our navy maternity sweater is cozy, yes, but also striking. The rich blue is perfect for this time of year. We like our outfits with the ultimate food duo: chips and dip. We chose to shoot crunchy blue-corn tortilla chips with artichoke and spinach dip. Classy, crunchy, crave-worthy. Oh, and this sweater also comes in radicchio, you know the leafy vegetable in the shade of a pomegranate! Go ahead and snap a picture of you in blue. Stay salty Mama – it’s not always a bad thing!

We have your sweet, we have your salty, but let’s talk about crossover cravings: salty and sweet! Popcorn covered with chocolate is a pretty perfect pair. We shot it against our maternity maxi dress featuring a sweet dusty pink pleated skirt and a soft black top. The contrast actually creates a balance and therefore is representing salty and sweet, again a pretty perfect pairing. [Editor’s Note: This style is dropping next week, so head to your local store to get it before Thanksgiving or make it your holiday must when it’s shoppable online!]

What are you craving? How are you dressing? Tell us. We’re hungry to see more! @motherhoodmaternity #thisisgoingtobefun

WRAPPING UP COZY

MH BLOG WrappingUpCozy v1

October started out a little too warm for our liking. The leaves didn’t know what to do and the bees were still buzzing. Of course, we are speaking from the East Coast, since our headquarters and distribution center are in New Jersey. However, as the weeks went on we went from endless summer to welcoming winter! It’s like fall didn’t, well, fall. Lately the chill has been strong, and our cozy campaign finally has come to life.

What we love most about the change in the seasons is the different activities that follow suit. Spring is amazing for the re-awaking of the earth. We love switching up clothing, the flowers blooming, and outdoor activities are back on the table. Summer is great for swimming and vacationing. Autumn is so fashion-forward and there is no shortage of apple to pumpkin picking adventures. But what we are doing now is bearing down for winter. And with winter comes cuddling. You’re going to need some outfits that help you get your snuggle on.

We of course recommend maternity sweaters, maternity leggings, the comfiest maternity sleepwear, our stretchy side-ruched maternity tees, a really good maternity sleep bra or the best-selling seamless bra… both which become nursing bras, and then nursing styles in general for our new mamas. The effortless outfits make having cabin fever more fun. And we’re totally okay with staying home in style!

TURKEY TEES

MH BLOG Turkey Tees 2018 v1

What’s on the menu for Thanksgiving when it comes to dressing? Go for cute and comfy this year, Mama! Our maternity graphic tees are dishing up something special for you.

Let’s talk turkey… literally. The two shown holiday tees are all about the little one cooking in your belly. We loved the color of the top maternity shirt and had thought about taking it to another level with a complementary plaid maternity button up in reds, burgundy and shades of blue.

Our second turkey tee featured pops of bright orange and yellow, so we mellowed out the gray graphic by pairing it with our white and black plaid top. We imagined it open over the tee with our stretchy and supportive Secret Fit Belly® maternity jeans. Just wait until you see why we’re thankful for them! [Editor’s Note: look for a blog post coming soon!]

Although not in your face Thanksgiving, we also sell our exclusive Blessed to be a Mama maternity t-shirt, which also comes in plus sizing 1X-3X. Oh… and that cute letterboard that we used in our photo shoots – we sell that too! Make it yours.

Thanksgiving is Thursday, November 22nd, so make sure you order these styles this week to ensure they come in time with standard shipping and delivery. Also make sure you tag us in your Thanksgiving look, either today with #GraphicTeeTuesday or always with #thisisgoingtobefun @motherhoodmaternity!

SO MUCH TO CELEBRATE

MH BLOG FloorsetNovember v1

We know, we know… Halloween JUST happened, and Thanksgiving isn’t even here yet! That’s why we aren’t going straight to Christmas. We are taking a little detour and ever so slightly getting you in the spirit. Look past the gold confetti and red font. When we say there is so much to celebrate, that means Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, the end of another year and the beginning of a great adventure with baby. In other words, we are celebrating style and celebrating YOU!

To start, we are all about maternity denim. It’s America, and it’s kind of our signature. So, begin with your choice of blue and then work your way up. This is our second year selling the maternity overalls and they remain one of the top loved styles. We see them having a “third times the charm” moment in 2019 too! But there is no wrong way to wear jeans. Shop the featured skinny ankle pair here.

Sweater weather has of course come, but we are really living for plaid season. The featured red and blue plaid maternity top is actually a button front with convertible sleeves; so when those pregnancy hormones [or office heat] kick in, you can roll them all the way up! [Editor’s Note: this shirt comes in 8 different colors!]

You need your choice of maternity blouses particularly for this time of year. Between the parties, get-togethers and family fun… you should opt for a top that is pretty and practical. Shop the shown ruffle detail, tie sleeve maternity blouse in cherry or black! How do you dress for the busy season? Show us with #thisisgoingtobefun @motherhoodmaternity!

THE BRA SHOP

MH BLOG Bra Shop v1

Here at Motherhood® Maternity we suggest always having at least four maternity bras in your rotation, which is why we have our running promotion of buy 3, get the 4th free style. This way, you have different comfort options, always on hand if the rest are in the hamper, and then one to sleep in too. Above are our six styles of support that will you get through the next nine months and beyond, because our maternity bras ARE nursing bras.

We always get the question of when to start bra shopping. The answer is as early as you see your breasts change, which can be as soon as you find out you’re pregnant. Breasts are usually the first body part to grow… even before the belly! Our bras are designed to grow as you do.

Our full coverage style is the made for maternity tees and tops. Featuring an underwire, it does provide lift and support, while giving you the coverage you crave as the girls continue to grow! Similar in lift and support, the strapless maternity bra makes dressing easy and without worry. It will stay put and comes with detachable/re-attachable bra straps that can be made into a cross-back style too.

Our racerback maternity bras are one of the most loved styles. They are stretchy and super comfortable, plus they feature the slimmer cross back that looks amazing with workout wear. We love (and our customers love) the lacy ones, especially under a loose tee for a daringly cute look. Need something a little stronger and supportive for working out? We have maternity sport bras that keep you feeling secure as you get your sweat sesh on.

And now for our two most popular bras: the seamless bra and the maternity sleep bra! The seamless bra is award-winning, has over 500 5-star reviews and is top-rated across the board. Why? Well, it is truly wireless and of course seamless, so it looks and feels amazing under any top or dress. The ruching in the middle doesn’t allow for the dreaded uni-boob, providing separation and light support. It comes in two silhouettes: demi/regular coverage and full coverage, as well as in plus sizing 1X-3X.

The sleep bra, also known as our wrap bra, is the one dreams are made of. Super soft and slightly supportive, you won’t feel constrained in the middle of the night… or day. Unlike our clip-down nursing feature, our sleep bra effortlessly pulls over for feeding and pumping. Don’t sleep on this style; it’s a favorite for a reason!
