I have been lucky enough to be asked to review some clothing from Blossom, the online mother and baby specialists. I have to admit to having never come across this site before but when I popped over to have a look, I was very impressed. The maternity clothes at Blossom are gorgeous and there are some really lovely classic items to help your wardrobe go that little bit further.
Maternity wear seems to have made great advances since I had the big one and I have to admit to spending a little more this time around. The main advantage of this is that, at 36 weeks, I am not living in jogging bottoms! It does a lot for your self esteem and self confidence to be able to find nice things to wear at this stage of pregnancy. And it also helps if you feel like you don’t in fact look like a beached whale!
I was sent the gorgeous top to try:
Since it has short sleeves, I’ve been wearing it with a long-sleeved black top underneath, either with jeans or a skirt. It’s really comfortable and the ruched sides means that it accommodates my ever growing bump!
Other items on the site I have my eye on include this fabulous nursing dress (how gorgeous is that? I’m thinking it can be dressed up or worn with boots for a day-time look) and this fab knitted dress. There are also plenty of things to indulge on for the baby too and I hear the cries from Ghostwriterdaddy’s wallet already. I think I need these ‘I’m unique’ body suits from Levi and I defy anyone not to fall in love with this fantastic sleep suit, based on the equally as fantastic books by Mo Williams. These books were firm favourites of the big one and her daddy for a long time and actually helped her learn to read.
Blossom is a truly lovely site for pregnant women, new mums and those looking to buy gifts. Yes, the products are slightly more pricey than your average high street or other online retailers, but I generally think you get what you pay for. The top I was sent to review is an excellent fit and made from high quality materials. When you’re pregnant, comfort is a must and you need garments which will grow with you. On these points, Blossom certainly did not disappoint.
