With only a few weeks to go until the arrival of baby no.4 my time of shopping for maternity wear has (sadly) come to an end. Don’t worry, instead I am now keeping an eye out for gorgeous nursing items and I have found lots of beautiful pieces already. Buying breastfeeding clothing is not easy though, after all I don’t know if and how long I will be able to breastfeed for and then there is the issue of baby weight… One brand that clearly understand these concerns and designs its range accordingly is Oksa.
Oksa is an Australian fashion label created by mum Kirsten, you can find the Oksa range at stockists in Australia and New Zealand. The range consists of beautiful maternity and nursing clothing designed with real women in mind. From dresses to pants, from tops to skirts, every single item is super stylish and very flattering to suit your growing belly and/or adjust with you as you find your ‘old’ shape back after delivery.
You can tell there is a real mum behind this brand, someone who understands exactly what we like and don’t like! I recently made my first purchase at Oksa and am very impressed with the quality and fit. I spotted this black Oksa Jumpsuit a few months ago but as it was already sold out in my size I quickly put my name down for the second delivery of this popular style, I am so glad I did.
The cute jumpsuit is super soft, stretchy and cool which is perfect for the hot summer weather. The loose cut flatters a baby bump (and hides a post baby belly) and it has discrete zips on each side so it is perfect for breastfeeding too, a real winner for my wardrobe! I also love the sweet cut-out button detail at the back, just in case you thought all-black was a little plain. The Oksa jumpsuit ($119.95) is available in black and in navy/white stripe (still on my wishlist) and comes in sizes 8-16.
I have no doubt that I will be purchasing other Oksa styles in the future, it will be so nice to wear breastfeeding friendly clothing and still look stylish. There is no need to look boring and wear baggy garments, Oksa makes it really easy to be a hip mama!
