Wearing the hospital gown issued by your midwife isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. Frankly, there’s nothing flattering about those shapeless cotton tents with their very few ties up the back. If you’re after something a little nicer to pack away in your hospital bag, we’ve found the perfect designer gown.
B.Y.O.G (Bring Your Own Gown) specialises in designer maternity gowns that are both pretty and practical, perfect for birthing and those first photos with your newborn! Gowns are made from super soft cotton and come with a removable coordinating ribbon trim.
The gown of choice for some celebrities, these really are as practical as they are pretty. There are snaps all the way down the back for full coverage so modesty can be kept intact (for the most part!). Breastfeeding is also made easy with sleeves that unsnap for minimal exposure which is great for new mums learning the ropes.
There are six designs available including Havana Rose, Tori Spelling’s gown of choice when she gave birth to daughter Stella.
A great range is available locally from Bubba Bling, with gowns priced at $129.95 plus delivery.
