Looking great during and after your pregnancy has gotten a whole lot easier now that more designers focus on creating clothes that are both stylish and comfortable. There is also an emphasis on clothes that last '?? not only throughout the pregnancy but those that can be worn while you are nursing and beyond. At a showroom in NYC, I learned about such a company called Larrivo whose designs specialize in chic and comfortable maternity and nursing attire.
Created by Loretta Schneider, the Larrivo line includes a collection of fashionable and functional clothing for the modern mom. This includes a line of chemises, camisoles, pants and jackets that is available in various colors and prints such as Asian, florals, watercolors, animal, paisley and sepia toned prints. I really loved the Venus Dress (available in Dark Slate, Silver Cloud, Lavender Mink, Jet Black and Poppy Red), which had a gorgeous feminine cut in both the front and the back of the dress as well as allows for easy access to the breast when nursing.
Larrivo'??s The Lucina Tankini, a maternity swimsuit is a style standout. Made from a nylon and spandex blend, the blue Tankini is a chic and flowy halter that can also be worn post-pregnancy. Larrivo is also famous with many celebs from their adorable and feminine breastfeeding camisoles like the Cara Breastfeeding Cami and the Madison Breastfeeding Cami that are supported by a comfortable built-in bra called the NurtaBra Support System. In fact, all of the clothing from Larrivo allows for easy accessibility to nurse where you simply unsnap and pull down the garment.
As a flexible and functional line, it'??s nice to know that you can wear silky and feminine items for your pregnancy and beyond.
