I'm a size 14 and bought the M. I really love the fit of this dress, it's a little generous which I love as it doesn't wrap around my body tightly, comfy even on a hot day. The fabric is beautiful and feels silky. Great value!
I've always been a tomboy and it's so refreshing to find maternity stuff that doesn't make me look like a cupcake! Absolutely love this dress! Great design, great fabric!
I wore it towards the end of my pregnancy and I loved it but now, 4 weeks after birth THIS dress is my going-out staple! Loose fitting so it doesn't emphasize my post-baby shape, and because he's cluster feeding I always have to be ready and the nursing feature of this dress is amazing! Can't recommend it highly enough!!
I'm 27 weeks and I needed a comfy but elegant dress for work. I love the cut, the fabric is super nice and almost wrinkle free which is a huge win for me over a cotton dress!
Amazing fabric! 32 weeks in it's so hard to find a dress that doesn't make me feel itchy on a 30-degree day! It's light and comfortable!

Now, that’s a tricky one.
The benefits of using bamboo are well known: it needs only rainwater (no excessive watering like cotton) to grow, requires very little fertilization, renewable meaning that once harvested it self-regenerates from its own roots, no need to replant it, and if produced the right way bamboo garments biodegrade naturally.
Unfortunately regular bamboo viscose (most common bamboo fabric) is produced through a highly intensive chemical process and can pose a risk to human health.
All of our bamboo fabrics are OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified, which ensures through excessive testing that they’re free of harmful substances for human health.
That means no nasty chemicals on our sensitive skins while keeping all the amazing qualities of bamboo: it’s breathable, super stretchy and buttery soft, durable and absorbs moisture.
It is not an organic fibre and therefore not a perfect solution, but we believe that combined with our very conscious waste reduction approach and ethical production methods, our bamboo maternity clothes are sustainable.
