Whilst I was pregnant I was offered a fair amount of maternity clothes to review, however I was quite selective and only picked things which I would have bought myself given the chance. One of the shops which I was genuinely thrilled to be asked to review some clothes from was Blossom Mother and Child. Blossom sell some really lovely luxury maternity wear online here www.blossommotherandchild.com and from shops in Marylebone, South Kensington and Harrods.
I was sent the ‘Gustave feeding top’ which has to be the best nursing top I have ever had throughout my time feeding my three children. Its great quality, really soft and luxurious. The design is stylish and looks great with my jeans and I found it really easy to feed baby Ned when wearing this whilst retaining my dignity. In fact, I literally washed it overnight and wore it daily for nearly a week long stretch, it was that good. I cant recommend this more highly, it has washed and washed whilst retaining its shape and softness. The design has proved perfect for feeding, it looks great with my jeans as well.
The other item I was sent was this nursing dress again, I was really pleased with the dress. I wore this is the last stages of pregnancy, in fact on Christmas Day and it was perfect. Comfortable, stylish and great quality. Because of the design of the dress you can wear it post pregnancy for nursing and I have been wearing it on and off. I have to admit I didn’t find it brilliant for nursing as the appropriate area does not seem to stretch enough and keeps getting in the way. However, the dress looks so lovely, that I can put up with that. At the moment its half price on the website, well worth checking out.
All in all, I’ve been really impressed with Blossom Mother and Child, they have some lovely stuff on their website and there is a huge range of products. Its quite rare to find a site that has some proper designer stuff for pregnant women, but they offer Anya Hindmarch and Missoni amongst others. They also have a great blog. Be very warned, if you are expecting a baby and you look at Blossom Mother and Child you’ll find it quite hard to find anything you want from anywhere else!
