Introducing our brand new Nursing Capsule Wardrobe service!
When you start your breastfeeding journey, you will never know how long it is going to last, and this means that you may be (understandably) reluctant to invest in nursing clothing, so hiring it makes perfect sense! Just like our Maternity Capsule Wardrobes, you will also be able to swap items when the seasons change or if you get bored.
We've sourced a selection of stylish and sustainable items from award-winning nursing brands for you to choose from, most of which have been designed by nursing Mums! The photos above show some of the items available but you can see the full gallery here.
How does it work?
The Nursing Capsule Wardrobe costs £20 for yor first month, followed by £10 a month thereafter, for 3 quality nursing styles which will complement your existing wardrobe and give you some staple pieces for your breastfeeding journey. This includes all delivery costs, and wear and tear is covered too. If at any time you want to swap, it's a one-off cost of £10 per item.
This is currently a pre-order service, so we are now open for orders until Friday 18th September, and you will receive your capsule a couple of weeks later. You'll pay £20 now to secure your Capsule, but your first month won't start until your Capsule is delivered.
Choosing your Capsule
Not all of the styles will be available in every size, so tell us which styles are your favourite (if you want to specify 4 styles this will help us) and we will do our best to send you your favourites, but if certain styles aren't available we will send you something similar. If you have an order of preference, let us know. If you can provide your chest measurement as well as your dress size this will make sure that we send you the best fit possible, but it's not necessary. If you prefer a loose fit please tell us, otherwise we will send you items that are in your exact size.
The Choices (the exciting bit!)
Here is a brief overview of the brands, styles and sizes available:
Sienna Apparel - These styles are ethically and sustainably made from 100% organic cotton, and feature uniquely designed zips exactly where they need to be! There is a new collection coming very soon but there are some limited sizes available in Jumpsuits and Tops at the moment. Currently only available in Sizes 12-18.
Stylish Mum - Bold rainbow tops and dresses plus some other (award-winning!) styles too, made from a cotton and Spandex mix so that they wash and wear well, have enough stretch for easy breastfeeding and are non-iron! Most styles come in Sizes 6-24.
Love Hope Vest - this organic cotton vest features something a bit different - a drop sleeve for easy nursing - and comes with either the Mama or Milk Maker slogan (please tell us which you prefer!). Sizes are based on chest measurements but they are XS - XL and are handmade to order in Norfolk.
BShirt - another organic cotton style, this award-winning top is not just designed to be worn by itself, but as a layer underneath your normal clothes to transform them into discreet nursing-friendly clothes, so that you can get the most out of your wardrobe whilst still having your tummy covered up, and they feature a pretty lace detail too. We have decided initially to stock this top in Teal, but let us know if you prefer another colour and if there is enough interest we will stock that one too! In sizes 6-20.
Mamalicious - we work with this brand for our Maternity Capsule too and love their sustainability ethos and great designs. For the Nursing Capsule we have available a Black Nursing Bra and Nursing Vest (this is the traditional clip-down style) which are both made from recycled nylon which saves resources and reduces waste. The Navy and Black/White Stripe Nursing Tops and the Breton Stripe Dress are all made of 95% organic cotton. All of these styles are available in sizes 8-14.
When Autumn/Winter arrives we will have cosy sweaters, nursing shawls and other warm options too!
Phew! That was a lot to cover. If you have any questions or it's just too much choice, please just get in touch and Emma will get back to you!
