GlowMama - for all your mama needs

Need Maternity Styling Help? Come in store!

October 09, 2013

Shopping online for maternity wear is convenient and can be fun.  It almost feels like Christmas when the mailman arrives at your door with a parcel just for you!  Remember the old days when you went into an actual store and tried clothing on?  We have so many ladies walking into our Brisbane store asking… “Where have all the real shops gone??”. 

When you fall pregnant your body can go through the most amazing changes, some welcome and some a little less exciting.  Your tried and tested basics that you have worn for years pre-pregnancy suddenly just don’t look right once your chest grows by two cup sizes, or your once tiny waist is begging to exit from your tailored shirts.

It can be hard to know where to start when you are rebuilding your wardrobe but at GlowMama in Brisbane we are here to help you. 

When you arrive in store we will ask you a few questions to get a feel for your wardrobe needs.  What do you usually wear to work?  Do you have a lot of social functions to attend?  What type of colours and prints are you usually drawn to?  We will help you to select some styles based on your requirements and then we will assist you with the fit to make sure you are wearing the correct size. 

Think of us your personal stylists!  We will always give you honest feedback on the outfits that you trial, and if something isn’t working for you, we will search for another option.  We will show you the different ways you can wear your items to create a myriad of looks, one simple top can take you from the beach to the boardroom with the right accessories.  Most of all, we want you to love your new look, feel comfortable, and radiate confidence. 

After all, you are doing the most important job in the world, growing another person!

Sizing Charts

WHAT'S MY SIZE?

We understand how difficult it can be choosing the right size when your shape is continually changing!  Our general rule is to choose your pre-pregnancy size.  All of our carefully picked designs are cut specifically for maternity.  If you are in between sizes or fall into two sizing categories, decide how fitted you would like the outfit to be (do you want to allow extra room for growth?).

If you have any queries or concerns, please email or telephone us on 07 3352 5777 where we would be delighted to help.

Mavi Jeans

MAVI SIZE GUIDE

MATERNITY JEANS

As a general rule, our maternity jeans are designed to fit the following body measurements. There may be slight variations to this depending on the product.

MAVI AU
(CM)
HIPS
(CM)
24 6 88
25 7 90
26 8 93
27 9 95
28 10 98
29 11 100
30 12 103
31 13 105
32 14 108

There are 4 important measurements to consider when purchasing a pair of maternity jeans:

  1. Front Rise
    Our maternity jeans are typically all low rise (7.5”). Use your favourite pair of jeans to measure the crotch to the top of the front waistband.
  2. Waist
    In most cases, the maternity jean size correct for you will be the same size as you normally wear. Elasticity in the side pockets will accommodate the growth of your stomach.
  3. Hip
    The hip should be measured around its fullest part (about 8” below your waist).
  4. Length
    This is also known as inseam or inside leg. Use your favourite pair of jeans to measure from the crotch to the hem, down the inside leg.
