#note to my future self: I’m just saving this message online so that I can read it one day and know that I did good things.

Just have to say, your website is absolutely amazing.  I knew you sold maternity and breastfeeding clothes but had no idea there was so much supportive and informative information on there about both breastfeeding and bottle feeding.  I have been finding reading the information and the experiences of other women so unbelievably helpful and not too mention reassuring. 
I am suffering from low milk supply (as you would have guessed from the items I ordered) and have had to supplement with formula as advised by paeds for the last week due to my four week old not gaining much weight.  My supply has since taken an even bigger hit.  My heads been all over the place   I could spend lots of money and time trying my hardest to increase my milk supply, but I decided to just let things be and devote that time to just bonding with my gorgeous baby instead of worrying so much about how I am going to be feeding her.  Now I just have to work on dropping the guilt. Its nice to come across some really non judgemental information and advice about mixed feeding and bottle feeding.

ProductName: Zahra Applique Dress

Rating: 4

Comment: This is a regular wear for me, nice to have something that you can just throw on and look like you are 'dressed' for the day but it is as comfortable as being in PJs.

I bought this in pregnancy but found it was too short while pregnant. I am 172cm tall. Has been great for the hot summer days since giving birth and looks good with a pair of tights in the evening. Easy and discrete to breast feed in. I would definitely buy again. Would give it 4 1/2 stars if that was possible.

Breastfeeding Tunic


I really can not express how much I love the top. I was so over breastfeeding and it was really getting me down that I couldn't find anything nice to wear. I wear this top every second day almost. We are about to go on a holiday so I'll be getting a couple more things soon :)



Lovely message from Becs today

" Hi Franny!

Nursing Dress

#customer love from Melissa


Our Stripelicious Nursing Dress


Who said horizontal stripes were unflattering?! Obviously that was before Franny was in town! Dress is more than I could have hoped for. Love the subtle access for feeding baby. Perfect length, perfect weighted material, perfect amount of overlap on feeding access, perfect everything!! Bring on more colours in this design!!

Vicky just said this about our Clip-on-Cami 


"I have previously been relying on my normal clothes for breastfeeding as I don't want to shell out a small fortune for one top, it's nice to find something that suits people on a budget. And a bonus that my back and tummy will be a lot warmer now"

breastfeeding top

Some lovely feedback from Stephanie about our: Nuture Maternity Nursing Top

“I'm very happy with this top. It is really comfortable and is perfect for before and after bubs arrives. Fits my tummy in nicely now and will be great for breastfeeding without lifting up and pulling down multiple layers of clothes. Love the fact that you have maternity/breastfeeding clothes which look so nice. Have a feeling I will be shopping here more  often! Thanks for your fast and friendly service! “

Maternity Skirt

#customer love from Steph about the Essential Maternity Skirt



This skirt is really comfortable and smart enough for the office.  It helps hide the bumps of a post-baby body, and I know it will be used a lot throughout this pregnancy too.  The great price is an added bonus!


Nursing Covers

#customer love

Claire said “I received my nursing cover in the courier today. So so so so so impressed. The pattern looks even better than on the computer I've already tried it on for size and it's easy to put on and covers everything well. I'm a bigger person even when I'm not pregnant and this is going to cover EVERYTHING well will definitely buy from you again in the future.”
