Maternity Shopping List – Must Buys
Here is my list of 11 top products for your maternity shopping in India.
La Senza lace band hipsters
Put them down in your maternity shopping list as the La Senza lace band hipsters are a must buy during your pregnancy and after delivery as they have super smooth, cotton lace band that is low waist and extremely comfortable. A little pricey in India but believe me, the quality is great and they will last you long. It is a Canadian brand and available much cheaper there. If you have a friend in Canada, ask her to get it from there !
Made for moms over the belly maternity pants by Zivame
Made of super soft cotton fabric. They are light, stretchable and have the perfect straight fit. These can be worn casually and formally as well because of their straight fit. I looked for maternity pants everywhere but none came even close to these. Zivame has a red and black version of these and I hope they come out with more colours !
Underbelly denims by NEXT
These can be work during the first and second trimester when you need a comfortable elastic waist. The best part is that you can even use them post delivery for comfort over your post partum tummy.
Elastic underbelly formal pants by NEXT
Continuing office after pregnancy? Working till the last day? Get these super comfy formal pants by NEXT and going to office will be a breeze (as far as dressing up in the morning and comfort through the day is concerned).
Crossover or draped blouses by NEXT
or any other brand that can cover the growing belly and double up as nursing tops after the delivery (provided you get back into your same size) – NEXT products are available on Jabong and on NEXT’s website.
Bra Extenders for your growing bra band size during pregnancy
Bra extenders should be given with every nursing bra as they are so useful to women after delivery when they are changing sizes.
Mothercare nursing / Maternity Bras
One of the best bras for their fit and comfort.
Mothercare maternity dresses / gowns
They are made of the softest material and were extremely comfortable during my pregnancy and post delivery.
Morph is one of the few brands in India that offers Indian maternity clothes. Going out for a wedding or a family get together and you need to wear a saree? Must check out the stretchable, front open nursing blouses my Morph maternity that will make nursing your baby so much easier for you !
Preggear cotton tops
India does not have many brands offering stylish and comfortable pregnancy wear. Preggar cotton tops were a saviour for me. Made with 100% cotton, they are comfortable to wear through out the pregnancy. They fit perfectly and have a back tie that you can use throughout your pregnancy adjusting as you go.
The Body Shop Cocoa butter for stretch marks
Some may not like the sweet smell and other may love it. Please try it before you buy. Avoid during peak summers and it tends to become sticky.
