This time is different. For Christmas I asked Mark specifically for some maternity clothes. Comfort is a big thing when your pregnant. Your carrying and growing a Human inside your belly, you have enough aches and pains without the added pressure of not feeling comfortable or confident.
When Envie De Fraises got in touch asking me to review some of their items I couldn't possible say no. I was able to pick a few pieces from their website which was amazing!
First up I picked my staple maternity item... Maternity jeans. A must for every pregnant lady in my eyes. I picked the straight Maternity jean. I was very excited for these to arrive. When pregnant with Paige it took me weeks to find some maternity jeans that I liked and fit well. I wish I had known about Envie De Fraises then because these jeans are amazing. So comfy and such a good fit. The jeans are a little long for me but at 5'4 i'm not the biggest. I simple roll the bottoms up and problem fixed. The waist has an extra adjustable section which is very useful as at the moment the jeans are a little big around the waist. I can simple adjust them as my belly grows. The only slight downside to these jeans are the belly band. My other maternity jeans have a lower bump band and these are slightly higher. I'm not sure if it will change as my belly get even bigger but the top of the band comes to a slightly awkward place on my belly and with some tops you can see the band underneath. The jeans retail at £74.75. Which considering the quality and wear you would get out of them I'd defiantly pay myself!
Next up I chose the maternity top with lace shoulders. I love how soft this top is. It is such a comfortable piece. It is quite a basic top with the added lace detail but this makes it perfect to be able to dress up or down. The top retails at £28.74 which isn't a bad price at all. I also wear this top as a jumper with a little vest underneath to layer it up when it's a little chilly outside. The top is plenty long enough to cover my bump as it grows even bigger meaning it will last throughout the whole of my pregnancy.
