She {hearts} Mine for Nine

baby boom virtual shower

With 3 pregnancies under my belt, you would think I would have a wide collection of maternity clothing. What happens however, over the course of 8 years and 3 kids later – your body changes, styles change and seasons are never the same.

With 7 moves, a summer baby almost 8 years ago, a winter baby 5 years ago and a Spring baby 2 years ago… despite sporting a bump 3 times, now a 4th… I honestly have very little maternity clothing.

mine4nine2I really have no desite however, to go out and spend a fortune on a bunch of maternity items, that MAY fit now, but with the next pregnancy, maybe not.

So let me introduce you to a great solution :) – Mine For Nine.

It is a shop online, that allows you to RENT amazing maternity clothing for minimal cost. Instead of going out and spending a ton of money on maternity clothes, you may only wear once… why not rent it for less and then, when another pregnancy rolls around, you can enjoy shopping all over again renting new clothes, that fit you better, go with the style of the season more & so on.

Mine for Nine makes sense!

I rented out an amazing jean skirt. The fit is amazing. The quality of clothing is top of the line. By far one of the nicest maternity items I’ve ever worn.

mine4nineI hope to update this post in a few days, once I get a picture of myself wearing the skirt. Trust me though, its nice! :)

So if you are pregnant – or even have a friend who is & want to treat them with an amazing designer piece(s) of maternity clothing, check out the Mine for Nine shop! If you are in the market to buy, you can buy the items as well. :)

She {hearts} Leading Lady Nursing Bras

baby boom virtual shower

When I breastfed Jayden, I had no nursing bras. I thought I’d find some at JCP, but all I could find were scrunchy cupped (that looked like I stuffed) disasters that were way too big. After that experience, I brushed it off and never thought twice about a nursing bra. At home, I lived in sports bras and I was pretty content with that. In public, I continued wearing regular bras… I never had to nurse in public (dressing rooms and the car don’t count) so I was fine. I am a little less reserved about breastfeeding now and I don’t feel the need to run and hide if I need to nurse. So with the new baby, I’ll be using a cover up and I’ll be needing some bras that are easy to nurse while wearing.

The nursing bras that I have my eye on are from Leading Lady. I loaded up my registry with them ever since I received the molded seamless wirefree nursing bra to closely examinate :-). Ladies, this.bra.is.flattering. It makes the girls look nice and shapely under clothing. It’s seamless, so there are no lines, ruffles, or other frumpies to poke from underneath clothing. My bra fits me perfectly with a little room to grow once my milk comes in. You can’t even tell it’s nursing bra.

The way the bra operates is pretty clever. It has a hook/snap system that allows you to unhook the top of the cup from the strap to nurse, so you don’t have to hike your whole bra up to expose the full breast for baby. Once baby is content, you simply hook and snap the the top of the cup back on the strap. Easy peasy.

I am very impressed with Leading Lady. Like I said, I have plenty (molded seamless wirefree & crossover leisure) of them on my registry. Leading Lady has been making nursing wear for 70 years and now I see why they continue to grow and receive rave reviews!

She {hearts} Isabella Oliver Maternity

If there is ever a time in a woman’s life when it is especially important for her to feel beautiful, it is during pregnancy! With so many physical changes going on, it is nice to know there is still fashionable attire available that does not make one look like she is wearing a tent! I have recently fallen in love with Isabella Oliver Maternity.

 

 

 

 

Isabella Oliver Maternity offers a huge selection of gorgeous maternity wear, from tunics to dresses to shirts to pants to blazers! I adore my new Tuck Detail Tunic in Electric Plum. I’m still only 5 months into my second pregnancy, so I’m not showing a lot yet, but I can already tell that this is going to be my “go-to” maternity piece this winter! The long-sleeved tunic is well-made and comfortable, and while I enjoy wearing it now with flats and cropped leggings, I also think it will pair perfectly with boots and a scarf as the weather gets cooler!
