We are over the moon to have opened our very first boutique in Yorkshire, dedicated to dressing pregnant and nursing women.
What started out as an online retailer, selling fashionable
maternity and nursing clothes has now opened what is believed to be the first
of its kind for the North of England; a boutique dedicated to dressing pregnant
and nursing mothers.
The founder and owner of Fashionably Pregnant, Laura
Gawthorpe, said; “After personally struggling to find fashionable and
affordable maternity clothes myself when I was pregnant, it became very clear
that regardless of how far you are prepared to travel, you can not find a store
that sells a wide variety of maternity clothes, the option to try on and be
happy with the price in one go.
“I was determined to change that. So, I initially set up an
online shop selling a wide variety of maternity and nursing clothes, ranging
from basics to evening gowns, winter coats, yoga pants, workwear, swimming
costumes, nursing dresses and tops, however after I was inundated with local
expectant mothers asking if they could come to my home and try on the clothes
as they did not know what size to order, I decided to make the experience a
whole lot more welcoming and that is how the boutique was born.
“In Hull and East Yorkshire alone, we had 6419 births in
2017 (ONS 2017), since then more and more retailers have moved their maternity
ranges online, leaving our mums-to-be with a shortage of places to visit
without having to order online and run the risk of ordering the wrong size or
the item not looking right.
“As I have a young family and lucky enough to have the space, I have opened the shop at my home, meaning I can open the boutique for customers when it suits them, evening or weekend appointments are absolutely no problem. On average I hold 10 – 15 different brands of maternity and nursing clothes at any one time to give as much choice as possible.”
Not only is Fashionably Pregnant keen to give you a one-to-one
experience, the price you pay is also very important to Laura. She prides
herself on finding the best quality items and selling them as low as possible
to you, knowing how short-term a maternity and nursing wardrobe often is.
The only boutique of its kind in the North of England opened
its doors on Monday 25th March 2019 and the feedback has been
