Hello, today i’m going to talk to you about STALF and you’re gonna want to listen!
So, from around the second trimester of pregnancy you start to feel your clothes get tight. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but that generally tends to happen when you’re growing a human! Perhaps your jeans wont fasten and your tops don’t sit right on your rapidly expanding boobs. You’ll probably begin to gather bits of maternity clothing that will be your ‘capsule wardrobe’ for the foreseeable future. And i literally mean, FUTURE.
When i was doing this i totally underestimated how much i would wear this wardrobe and how much time it would be before i got back into my pre-pregnancy clothes. Some days i still rock the maternity tops i panic bought from ASOS when i could no longer button up my shirts. I never felt like these pieces of clothing ever really cut the mustard. They didn’t give me much confidence.
I am here today, 11 weeks postpartum – a bit fragile- but with the most beautiful little girl and a wonderfully soft tummy that i need to re-learn to dress. I have struggled to accept that belly as mine and some days i still feel like there’s still a baby in there. BUT i am becoming more at ease with what my body looks like now, it made a human, it fucking rocks!!
I’ve always loved minimalist styles, clean lines and interesting shapes (mostly oversized) and i found this really difficult to maintain throughout my pregnancy and afterwards. Everything needs to be comfortable and combing that with style is no easy thing.
I identify with my style, its who i am and how i express myself, it might not be particularly ‘expressive’ (i wear a lot of black) but it’s me. Whilst you are changing and growing and becoming a kick ass Mama, it’s important not to lose sight of that.
ALL HAIL STALF!!
You can imagine how pleased i was when i found a comfortable, beautiful range of clothes that’s also ethically produced. The range will do any Mama with a love of the ‘Cos’ look, through their pregnancy and beyond. STALF have unintentionally catered to all of my needs; the ‘easywear’ brand provide gorgeous, organic fabric, styled right here in Britain. Paris and her team design and create the loveliest gear! I’ve gotten myself two pairs of the Organic Sweatpants and they’ve hardly left my body since. Although only available in one size, it’s a one size fits all mama game.
Paris, i hear by thank you, on behalf of every STALF wearing mama out there… you’re our hero!
