This is a guest post and review written by Heather of Grab Bag Reviews. Heather is the mom of 2 handsome little boys, both of whom she breastfed.
When you are pregnant, it seems that everything pregnancy and baby related flocks to the forefront of your mind. One of the biggest decisions I made for my children was to breastfeed them. Although it's such a rewarding experience and well worth it for both mom and baby, it can be tiring and leave you with the feeling that your body no longer belongs to you.
Lady Lait has designed a beautiful nursing tunic that is comfortable, functional, and feminine. It gives you the goods you need to feel sexy even while waiting for your breasts to spring leaks at your baby's first cry. The ample design in the front will hide a full coverage nursing bra, but also includes delicate (non-itchy!) lace along the bustline to add to the flirty feel. With front panels that simply stretch to the side, and material that is 100% machine washable; it doesn't get any easier than this!
Curious how Lady Lait came to be? So was I, and the owner, Sarah, has shared her story on the Lady Lady website for all to enjoy.
When I was eight months pregnant with my first child, I began to look for high quality loungewear and sleepwear to be worn at the hospital and at home with my new baby. I searched everywhere and I could not find anything that I wanted to purchase. I had decided to breastfeed, but I did not want to wear clothing that looked like I was nursing. I also didn’t want to put on maternity clothes or anything that made me look pregnant after my baby was born.
Soon, I became very busy being a new mother. Often, when I would nurse, I felt like my son was getting lost under all the fabric that was pushed up to my chin and I dreaded the possibility of showing my stomach. Clothing with built in bras did not offer the support that I desperately needed at this time. Out of necessity, I began to create clothing that I wanted to wear that would conceal my own nursing bra. I went into my closet and cut up some of my pre-pregnancy clothes and pinned the pieces together. Soon Lady Lait was born. Surely I was not the only new mother who wanted nice apparel that provided easy nursing access without compromising style!
Lait (pronounced “lay”) is the French word for milk. Each garment is made in the U.S.A. Eve, our premiere design, is a fashionable tunic that is made so you will look and feel your best after childbirth, and while you are at home in the weeks and months following your delivery. I continue to wear mine almost every day and it is still my favorite sleepwear garment, even though I stopped nursing some time ago. Eve is also perfect to be worn in the early months of subsequent pregnancies when you’re in between regular & maternity wardrobes. I have found this tunic to be a treasure, and I know you’ll enjoy it very much.
