Sometimes all a pregnant mama needs is a stretchy soft dress and maybe a big block of chocolate. You’ll have to venture out the house for the chocolate, but Natural Fibres Organic has the dress department sorted.
Based in Melbourne, Natural Fibres Organic designs a range of pretty, unfussy maternity wear. All garments are made from bamboo jersey, a fabric known for its stretch and softness. Although they’re designed to be worn as early as first trimester, these clothes are ideal for the last few months of pregnancy when your wardrobe has turned against you and nothing fits.
There are gorgeous, simple t-shirt dresses ($89.95) and tees with ruched sides, double-layered busts and seamless necklines. One of nature’s terribly unfunny jokes is to make pregnant bellies pop out farther than you ever dreamed possible right at the end, so these tops and dresses have elastic from the underarms to the hems for extra stretch.
There are also ruched pencil skirts ($59.95) in black or pale grey that make perfect wardrobe staples. Designed to be worn post-pregnancy and to not look like maternity wear, these skirts get points for sustainability, as well as comfort and loveliness.
Natural Fibres Organic garments ship from Melbourne for $9 within Australia.
