Winter maternity nursing dress

Hi lovelies! Hope you’re enjoying the last month of Autumn.

Maive & Bo Australia had a major shakeup last month when we partnered with The Iconic Australia to stock our line. It was pretty humbling to be recognised as an Australian maternity brand by one of the biggest players in Australian online shopping (unfortunately this doesn’t mean I get a special discount… I checked). Also, this month we put the final touches on a gorgeous new maternity dress for large busts which we’re hoping to release in the next couple of days. Finally, I’m sharing some of my favourite moments from our Winter photoshoot last week – check it out if you’re keen to see what will be online soon!

Firstly, after talking to so many of our gorgeous customers, we realised that maternity wear in Australia was in need of a flattering pregnancy dress for large busts. Now, I’m not one to boast a significant bust size, however when I’m pregnant or breastfeeding, I could literally give Dolly Parton a run for her money. Enter the Knot Dress.

Designed in a super-soft, stretchy and breathable cotton blend fabric, the Knot will see you through work days, special events such as weddings and baby showers or can be dressed down with flat boots for winter weekends – talk about versatile!

What’s more, this dress looks amazing on post-baby bodies and, like our Harlow wrap dresses, can be worn after pregnancy with easy nursing access.  The Navy Oriental will be available this week and we’ll also have it in grey shortly.

Now onto the fun stuff…

Last week we shot some of the new dresses we’ll be receiving during May (some of them this week!). Now we all know that working-mum life doesn’t always go smoothly and after a night of compulsive coughing, my little girl (4) found herself on her first photoshoot.

 Mum life!

Luckily, I had organised an amazing model, photographer and make-up artist who weren’t phased by a sleep deprived mother and spluttering four-year-old so the shoot went beautifully and we got some amazing pics. Below are some I took on my iPhone. Images feature the new Luella in Pink/Grey combo, Knot dresses in Navy Oriental and Grey and the Long Sleeve Harlow Dresses in Dusty Rose and Navy Floral.
