The burgeoning maternity wear market is no longer a niche industry, plagued by tent-like tops and uncomfortable, poorly cut pants. Here’s a dazzling label focused on tailored and fashionable maternity clothing that will last beyond the bump.
We gave you a fleeting look at this label in our roundup of maternity fashion at Playtime Paris, but here’s a more detailed look at Slacks & Co. As the name suggests, Slacks & Co. started out life focusing purely on well fitted trousers for fashionable, pregnant women. The London-based label has now expanded to include a full wardrobe of beautiful maternity garments.
If comfort is your thing (and let’s be honest, comfort is every pregnant woman’s ‘thing’), the Phuket harem pants are perfection. The elasticised waistband is designed to sit under the bump, and being made from a combination of viscose and elastane, they’ll easily bounce back into shape after pregnancy and continue to be a comfy mainstay in any wardrobe. They’re priced at £58.
The San Diego skinny treggings are an on-the-bump option, with side panels that aim to give a flattering line. They have the look of trousers, but all the comfort of leggings – what’s not to love? They cost £99, and are available in sizes six to fourteen.
I must also give a shout out to an item which carries an Australian moniker, the Sydney double layered tank. It’s effortless style for £75, and looks most sublime teamed with the Dallas faux leather treggings.
A selection of Slacks & Co. garments can be purchased locally at Queen Bee.
