Congratulations! Your little one is here, and you’re starting the most important job of your life – your new role as a mom!

You may feel a little self-conscious about any lumps and bumps after giving birth, but this is completely natural and very few people will simply snap back into shape immediately, so give yourself time to adjust. While breastfeeding can help with losing the pregnancy weight, it’s important to eat well (and eat enough) to nourish you and your baby, so aim for gradual weight loss and in the meantime, don't be afraid to embrace your curves!


A-line shapes sit a little looser around the tummy area and can help to disguise a post-partum bump. Don't be afraid to accessorise your outfit – with jewellery, your favourite nursing scarf or wide brim hat – keeping you fashionable and helping you to feel more like yourself.

Mayarya's Top Tips

Don’t be in too much of a hurry to get out and about! Take it easy in comfy pyjamas for as long as you feel like it (ours are luxuriously soft to the touch!)


The first month of motherhood can feel tough, but also so rewarding. Slow down and enjoy this special time… in comfort and style.

Thankfully, there are more options than ever for stylish bump friendly clothing. Remember to always stay true to your style and always make that special effort to pamper yourself. Entering this new phase in your new life can be daunting, e-mail for more personal styling advice.

Your Post-Pregnancy Shopping Checklist

1. Once you’re ready to face the outside world, opt for functional-yet-fashionable nursing dresses and tops that work with your style. Easy breastfeeding access means feeding your baby couldn’t be easier, or more discreet. 

2. You’ll probably find that you need a few extra nursing bras in your lingerie drawer, as your cup size may have changed since pregnancy. Getting the correct support is vital, so take your time and try a few styles to find the one that’s right for you.
