Why should I buy maternity clothes?
It is an important time in your life, it may ‘only’ be 9 months but it is such an important time of your life. Your wellbeing is paramount to give baby the best start before even born! So invest in some comfortable clothing, that will grow with you, and most will give the journey in 4th trimester a great benefit in form of nursing access and simply being comfortable while caring for your little one. And if you are lucky enough to have more than 1 baby, it is definitely worth investing in some key maternity pieces!
When should I start buying maternity clothing?
As soon as you feel uncomfortable! Everyone is different, some may require at 12 weeks others not until much later. Investing in a few key pieces such as a pair of jeans, good quality leggings, some basic tops – double up on your investment with dual maternity/nursing wear! At Room For Two we have key pieces for all seasons and occasions!
Can I just buy normal clothes a size larger?
Buying a size larger isn’t really ideal – tops will ‘cling’ in places they shouldn’t and the length won’t be there. Pants will eventually not fit properly and they will dig in. Most quality maternity jeans are great for the post-partum period as well, while your body works its miracles and slowly heals itself. Maternity clothes are designed to fit for the entire pregnancy and post-partum period
How will I know what size maternity clothing I need?
We suggest you buy the sizes you would as if you are not pregnant. Maternity brands cater for the widening of hips and the increase in bust. If you do put on more weight in pregnancy or expecting multiples then go up in size like with any weight gain. On the website we will also advise if the clothes are a smaller or larger cut. The most important thing is how you feel when you are wearing the item – ignore the sizing tag!
Bust wise most people will go up 1 or 2 cup sizes. Its important to measure yourself or get a professional fitting around 20 weeks or when you notice your old bras are too small. Buying a dual maternity and nursing bra is a great investment – underwire isn’t recommended while feeding.
How do I care for my new clothing?
Many Maive & Bo maternity wrap dresses are made from rayon. Why? Rayon is a natural, soft and comfortable fabric. It’s a lightweight fabric that’s breathable and feels amazing to wear. Being a delicate fabric though, it’s important to take care during the washing and drying process. Here are some tips on how to make your rayon dress last the distance:
- Wash in cold water with a mild detergent, if you have a detergent for dedicates – that would be ideal.
- Soak your rayon fabric in the basin until it completely wet. Then, gently swirl your fabric around the basin using your hands. Avoid harsh or rapid movements, such as those that would cause a splash.
- Avoid excess agitation whilst your garment is wet, Rayon is weaker when wet than when dry.
- Gently squeeze the excess water out from the fabric. Avoid harsh wringing and twisting of the fabric.
- You have to support the whole garment when lifting and carrying.
- We recommend hand washing & line drying Rayon clothing, and handling wet rayon with extra care.
- When ironing rayon, turn the garment inside out, set the temperature to low heat and don’t use any steam. Iron one small area at a time to avoid stretching.
What is the difference between a maternity bra and a normal bra?
We are so lucky to have so many amazing nursing lingerie brands available in Australia. Each brand is a little different but many have similar features. When buysing a bra with all the features! Look out for:
- Extended hook and eye clips on the back strap

- No under-wire
