Boob Maternity Wear: Organic Bump Style

I'm fussy about my clothes. I like pretty things. Things made sustainably. Things that last so that I don't have to waste money and resources replacing them. And when I first started looking for clothing to cover my ever-expanding waistline, it felt like banging my head against the wall. I'd head to the chain stores at the mall, only to find non-sustainable fabrics and clothes that I just knew would fall apart the third time I washed them. I gnashed my teeth in despair.

And then I found Boob. Glorious, soft, comforting, stylish Boob. Based in Sweden, Boob doesn't just create pregnancy clothing - they create pregnancy fashion. From gorgeous tops and bottoms to swirly dresses and loungewear, the pregnant or nursing woman will be able to find the perfect piece to complete their wardrobe - and many pieces that will last well afterwards, such as these awesome Once On Never Off pants that, I can guarantee you, live up to their name.

Many pieces adhere to the Oeko-Tex Confidence in Textiles standard which tests for harmful substances in textiles. And there are also many pieces made from lovely soft organic cotton, such as this uber-chic Wrap top.

Boob Maternity gear is available in Canada online and in person at Haute Mama (tell them ecochick sent you!) as well as several other wonderful maternity stores.

Yea for Boob! I lived in their mat wear and now love their nursing tops even more! The cotton is such high quality that you can launder the spit-up out several times a week and it still looks new. Sue at Haute Mama will become any prego's best friend, tho Milkface has a bigger selection of the styles that provide easy access to the boobies.
