We have not one but two grandchildren due the first week of April this year, so my daughter and daughter in law were both putting their hands up to see what this brand of maternity wear was all about. I was delighted to be able to help one of them out, as both girls are in their early 20s, they are always moaning at the lack of choice available to them for all sorts of Maternity Wear. I plumped for my daughter, as she is a Gymnastics Coach and even though we are in a pandemic has been coaching via zoom. She was a slender size 8 before becoming pregnant, and has almost on a weekly basis had to buy a new size bra. I really do feel for the younger mums, with an ever changing body shape and all the hormones raging through their bodies, the last thing they want is a nude coloured Boulder holder in size ginormous! They still want to feel like them, even though my daughter recently said out loud, it’s hard work growing a baby in your body. When we first saw the products Latched UK have we gave a small cheer, finally clothes that someone has designed with those mums in mind that are active and or young, that don’t cost an arm and a leg, but are functional during pregnancy and beyond.
For my daughter it was the first time she had seen maternity sports wear that she would wear, with only a few weeks to go before she is due to give birth, she has gone through countless bras. It’s such a weird and difficult time, it’s the little things that make all the difference. The Latched Maternity Sports Bra is fantastic quality, well made and in a funky marble print, it goes with most of her current sports maternity leggings. It gave her so much support and was extremely comfortable. She has already said she wants to take to the hospital with her, so it’s a good job it washes up well! The straps give the right amount of support, and there is also an extender included, which is amazing as gives that extra inch if needed. Despite having washed it several times, it has kept its shape and fabric still feels fab. Of course, she hasn’t been able to use for nursing as yet, but it seems fairly straight forward with a clip either side at the front for easy access. We love the little clip at the back, which turns the back into the racer style, such a neat idea.
Well done for the minimal packaging, a plain ziplock bag kept the product nice, without lots of wasteful wrapping and a box that just ends up in the bin. Becoming a mum is probably one of the most important jobs in the world, you need to look after yourself and your body, wearing a good bra is important for lots of reasons. This really made a difference to my daughter, she has struggled with all the body changes especially to her bust! We think this is a marvellous sports bra and it’s given her a lift in more ways than just keeping hers b**bs in the right place. You can really tell this product has been made by a mum for mums, well done!
