Elisa's inspiration for Milk came after the birth of her first daughter in 1997. Early on she was introduced to the concept of nursingwear. While she loved the discretion and ease that nursing clothing provided, she did not love the dowdy styling. She wanted to feel attractive and fashionable and believed her clothing should reflect that.
Elisa hopes that Milk enables you to breastfeed your children more easily and helps you enjoy being out in the world with your nurslings.
Dote's founder Dorothy has always loved creating beautiful things so making clothes that she could wear while nursing my daughter seemed like the most natural thing to do. She currently designs for her women's wear label Dotted Line, so Dote was a extension of the work that she already does. She believes that clothes should be tasteful and effortless - in wearable styles that will continue to work season after season. It is with this in mind that Dorothy designed for Dote.
And because Dorothy loves dresses (there is something about the simple elegance and charm of a dress!) you'll find a good selection of them in her range. Every piece from Dote is lovingly designed and created, in soft comfortable fabrics. We hope you will love the clothes as much as we do.
Pronounced "bella - boom! - boom!" - Portuguese for "beautiful
Founded in 2001 by two friends
Belabumbum was founded in 2001 by two college friends, Alyssa Weiss and Heidi Rauch, who believe in well-being, laughter, and creativity. Belabumbum was inspired by Heidi's development work across Latin America and tales of better fabrics and cuts in the sunny southern hemisphere.
When co-founder Alyssa became pregnant, Belabumbum Maternity was born. Belabumbum believes that women grow more beautiful during pregnancy, so the maternity line encourages women to feel pampered, sexy, and hip - during and after pregnancy. Now Heidi also has a child, so there's an abundance of inspiration to continue to expand the line. Over the last year Belabumbum has more than doubled its maternity business and formed partnerships with some of the largest maternity websites and retailers in the United States, Europe, Australia, and the Middle East.
A few days after the birth of her daughter Cécile, Christine Poioirier created her own nursing top in order to feel comfortable breastfeeding in public settings. The shirt worked perfectly with her squirmy newborn (her midwife was the first one to rave about it) and her friends started to want their own.
Nine months later, Christine's brother Vincent, with his entrepreneurial spirit, saw the potential of the Momzelle nursing top and together they co-founded the business. That's how Momzelle was born! Since then, they've continually been adding new styles and answering breastfeeding moms' needs.
Nursing mums response has been amazing. Many have more than five Momzelle nursing tops in your wardrobe and it's clear that so many moms prefer Momzelle to all other nursingwear brands. Nothing makes Christine feel better than a mom who tells her that she did not think that she could feel this pretty again.
As we all know, when mommy's happy, baby's happy too !
Milkstars was created by a mom who dreaded getting dressed after her baby was born. She had her pick of designer clothing to flatter her growing bump while she was pregnant but the party abruptly ended once she gave birth and took up nursing. Suddenly her clothing options ranged from boring, to ugly, to downright odd. In her opinion there was no reason the cute and trendy looks she saw in her favorite boutiques and department stores couldn't be available to the nursing mother so she set out to design them herself.
The result is Milkstars; a brand new clothing line designed from the ground up to strike the perfect balance between fashion and function. Our shirts are perfect for nursing on the go, lounging around the house, and for working mothers looking for a polished top that can easily accommodate a breast pump.
Ta Ta for Now
ta-ta for now design feminine, flattering, and practical clothes for breastfeeding moms. They design all of our pieces with fashion and function in mind. All of their fabric is cut to flatter the postpartum figure and is soft enough to cuddle up against newborn skin. Their stylish nursing wear features "secret access" openings so moms can nurse discretely and comfortably. Breastfeeding is a wonderful experience and we want moms to look and feel their best as they nurse anywhere, anytime!
About Grace and Robyn, ta ta for now's Founders
Both grace chung and robyn delane have two children under the age of three and reside in the bay area of california. currently, ta-ta for now's clothing line is manufactured in san francisco by other moms who have also experienced the joys and challenges of motherhood. in the future, the company hopes to expand its network to moms across the world, by sending manufacturing orders to groups of women in developing countries, where millions of moms struggle to feed and nurture their children due to lack of economic resources.
The Peek-a-boo maternity and nursing collection enables the mother
to breastfeed without exposing herself, keeping mother-baby eye contact
while still looking stylish.
Our designs take into consideration the changes in a woman's body from early pregnancy through nursing. The side ruching conceal the less-favourable tummy and back areas and our fashionable design allows a woman to continue with her daily activities without anyone suspecting she is wearing a nursing shirt.
A little duck illustration is situated in the inside of the garment and is revealed only while breastfeeding, giving the baby something to look at and provides the mother with a little reminder where she last fed from.
Baby Bubu was born in 2008 out of frustration of not finding any stylish breastfeeding accessories in the UK that would make public nursing easier. From this we designed the Baby Bubu breastfeeding cover and the British breastfeeding public welcomed the concept with open arms!
Baby Bubu's philosophy is that life doesn't have to be put on hold just because you are breastfeeding. For too long women have felt the need to hibernate in those first few months after having a baby, because they are daunted by the demands of breastfeeding in public. Not anymore!
Style is high on the Baby Bubu agenda along with practicality and value. We believe that a breastfeeding mother has the right to look and feel fabulous. Why should she compromise her image and fashion sense just because she is now breastfeeding a baby?
Two years on Baby Bubu are proud to have three fantastic ranges of breastfeeding covers; the classic collection, simple jersey and the chic nursing poncho.
Womama lingerie is designed for mothers-to-be and nursing mothers. But more than that, they design for women who want to look beautiful and feel confident. Femininity, grace and comfort are at the heart of their design ethos. They choose gorgeous fabrics that feel soft against the skin and wear well. Their flattering designs fit properly and provide optimum support.
The names "Womama" was inspired by the wonder and excitement of becoming a parent. Appreciating what your body can do. Becoming the centre of a little person's universe. Watching your baby sleep, thinking I can't believe we made you. Nature and its mysteries touch our lives in all sorts of ways.
Womama design all their garments with one aim in mind - to celebrate motherhood with wonder, delight and a sense of occasion.
Necessity truly is the mother of invention. In fact, necessity was the driving force behind Line Rothman's vision of creating stylish, functional fashions that are convenient and discreet for pregnant and nursing women.
The idea for Glamourmom, a line of tank tops, sleepwear and bathing suit that feature a patented built-in nursing bra, arose after the birth of Line's first child some nine years ago. Frustrated by the lack of fashionable nursing bras, tops and apparel in the market, Line set out to create a tank top with a built-in nursing bra that offered total breast support, easy of nursing and complete discretion and tummy coverage. Thus, Glamourmom was born and the impact was bigger than Line could have originally imagined. The Glamourmom tank's original design incorporates superior support and tummy coverage, allowing a woman to be fashionable as she sheds her maternity clothes. Line's invention quickly became the must-have item for nursing moms.

Exquisite, eco-conscious, and sustainably produced Gemstone jewelry offers healing energies for mind, body, and soul.
I continually strive to make the world a better place. It has been a priority for me to make sure that Little Gems has a Green Office seal of approval, and is run as a green business. My main website is run on green energy, the packaging and paper is all made from recycled and biodegradeable materials, the gems are mined and cut in small batches by village miners in India. My supplier has been going there and working with them for over a decade, and has watched them build houses for their families and their daughters going to school (which is not the norm in this region).
None of the gems are dyed and they are not processed above a little bit of polishing and shaping. These low impact gems are unlike any that are commonly found in the marketplace. These are totally unique and beautiful, just like you! You can rest assured that I do not use any leaded Swarvski crystal, nor leaded pewter.
The jewelry is made by a work at home mom (me) and most of the silver components are made from reclaimed silver.
Moody Mamas www.moodymamas.com
Moody Mamas, is giving hip, stylish moms-to-be everywhere a solution to keep their sophisticated style throughout their entire pregnancy and beyond.
It all started with what some might call an epiphany. A ray of light.
A vision. As most people with concur, miraculous moments come to us
in a variety of ways. For the Moody Mamas, this vision came to us
in the form of a beautiful pregnant goddess named Shiva.
"Women still want to feel sexy and flirty even though they are pregnant or nursing" she enlightened us.
If you girls want to do something that will make women feel good about themselves, you should make maternity and port-partum clothing. Interesting‚ we thought to ourselves. After all, we were on a quest to create a clothing line that would make women feel empowered, vivacious and sexy, but we weren't thinking it would be a maternity line. No, no‚ we had just moved to Los Angeles, were in our early twenties, and had never been married-let alone had children.
Regardless, something about what Shiva said to us that day clicked with us and set us on a journey that culminated into the creation of Moody Mamas.
Which brings us to where we are today. After two difficult years of trying to conceive, we became the proud parents of our own beautiful baby, Moody Mamas, Inc. In spring 2008, we launched our inaugural collection and look forward to many more years of being successful Moody Mamas. We work with designer and Project Runway winner Christian Siriano(creator of the Fierce Mamas line) among our most talented staff who help make Moody Mamas a success.
