We treated two fantastic mums from our Frugi Family Facebook group to a sneak peek of our stunning new Frugi Bloom collection
Busy mum-to-three Melanie is currently 31 weeks pregnant, while Faith has recently welcomed baby number two to her beautiful family. Here they spill the beans on what they thought when they put our collection to the test…
WEAR IT LIKE A MUM
NAME: MELANIE LOUISE DADSON
CHILDREN: HARRISON 6, HADLEY 4, HARLEY 20 MONTHS - AND 31 WEEKS PREGNANT
WEARING: SIRELI SMOCK DRESS IN SIZE 8
“My first thought as I took the dress out of the packaging was just how beautifully soft and light the material was, which was only confirmed further as I put it on - it’s so lovely and airy which is perfect for a heavily pregnant mum of 3.
I chose the design as my son absolutely loves planets and so he was adamant I had to have it. It instantly got his approval, and mine!
The print is fun, without being too large and overpowering which I feel is perfect for a ‘grown up’ dress. I also love the space theme as it’s not very often you see planets, featuring on anything aimed at women or girls and I’m all for gender neutral themes. The range of colour is beautiful and my eyes are instantly drawn to the planet print.
It is slightly longer than what I am used to - however I am only 5 foot tall. But it is in fact a lovely length, dropping below my knees with enough material to go over my ever expanding bump.
I am usually a size 8-10 pre pregnancy and the size 8 fits really well without clinging or feeling restrictive. It is very comfortable.
I cannot wait to test it out once baby has arrived as we plan on breastfeeding again and the ease of access design is fab. The light material of the skirt will also be amazing at keeping me cool as breastfeeding can make me feel a bit hot and flustered sometimes.
I absolutely love this dress; it is both beautiful and comfortable in every way!”
NAME: FAITH MACMILLIAN
CHILDREN: THEO 2 AND FIFI 8 WEEKS
WEARING: BERRY CORD PINAFORE IN SIZE 8 AND TRICIA JUMPER IN SIZE 10
“I absolutely LOVE this outfit! I can't wait for the weather to be cooler so that I can wear it more often. It's a great start to my autumn/winter breastfeeding wardrobe.
The breastfeeding-friendly top has two lovely soft layers and is an absolute dream to feed my little girl in. It is so comfy and I love that I don't have to worry about showing off my post pregnancy belly or getting cold while feeding her. It's slightly longer at the back than the front which is brilliant and I really love the rainbow detail on the front.
This top looks lovely with leggings or jeans or paired with dungarees like I have. I know I am going to get so much wear out of it!
I wouldn't normally go for anything corduroy as I don't always like the feel of the material but this dress is beautifully soft and I love the vibrant colour. It has adjustable straps which is brilliant for me as I'm only 5ft 2 and struggle to get clothes the right length for me. I am a size 8/10 and wearing a size 8.
It is really comfy and has easy access for feeding my daughter and plenty of room for a growing bump. It almost makes me wish I was pregnant again as I can imagine it looking even more lovely on a pregnant woman. It can be paired with pretty much any top underneath and once it is cooler I will be wearing it with some nice thick tights.
Both of these items are such amazing quality and the comfiest nursing clothes I own by far!”
Melanie and Faith were gifted their outfits as a thank you for providing honest reviews!
Our breastfeeding range has lots clever hidden details. Take the Delphine Tie Dress for example; it’s not just a pretty dress. It looks fab, feels amazing (thanks to its organic cotton loveliness) and is super smart with nifty features designed with breastfeeding in mind.
