Maternity wear is tricky as you only need it for 6-12 months

Having spent years carefully curating a slow fashion wardrobe built on ethical brands, maternity clothing posed a new challenge for Jane. “Maternity clothes are tricky as you only really need them for six to 12 months. So, if you can get items that double up as nursing clothes, like the Frugi dress, then that is great. Also just getting hand me downs from friends and using eBay and Vinted has been fab.” Jane has also constructed a “belly band” to go under clothes, enabling her to still make use of her current wardrobe and wear her favourite non maternity tops.
