The Clothing Debacle... or Not

When I was pregnant it was so difficult to find clothing ... I diligently visited the "other" store and I found it daunting.

I remember siting in the changing room struggling to try to put on a pair of maternity pants and feeling hopeless and frankly, mad.

Feeling great for my pregnancy photos!

My better half was trying to help me the best he could but he had no idea what would fit, what I needed, or what to say. My body was changing and I felt so off. Don't get me wrong I was over the moon excited, but I was also still nervous and unsure what the future had to bring for me and this growing belly of mine.

Honestly, I didn't want to spend a bunch of money on clothing because I felt fat and ugly. I know we aren't supposed to feel that way but it was a complete surprise to me and thank goodness it did change. Finding Hazelnut & Rose and getting a few nice pieces of clothing really helped my self-esteem and made me feel more comfortable in my own skin.

One of my favourite brands is boobDesign... or better know as boob. So far I have a few dresses and a bra that I love. Everything washes really well and it grew with my body (and then back again)! They were all great transition pieces - from pregnant body to nursing body. Maybe my favourite part was that it was easy to nurse in. You don't have to showing the world everything you've got while trying to figure out latching, positioning, and finally burping. Enjoy 😊
