Where To Find Chic, Ethical Maternity Clothes

Ethical Maternity Clothes

By Lora O’Brien

As someone who is 30 weeks into their pregnancy, I know how important it to find clothing that provides comfort, support and above all else, no harmful chemicals when you have a tiny human growing inside you Yep, it’s true – your clothing can be seriously bad for your health, and when you’re pregnant, you want to ensure what you’re wearing has no chemical dyes or finishes that could seep in to your bloodstream…and down to your baby!

Additionally, you have those days where you feel like (and possibly look like) a beached whale. So you just want to wear something pretty! After a fairly long search, I’ve finally found some chic, ethical maternity clothing that will not only protect the health of wee babies-to-be, but will also make their mamas look pretty hot!

Ethical Maternity Clothes For Super Stylish Moms-To-Be

1. Rent the Runway

In all honesty, the best thing to do when preggos is rent your wardrobe – especially if you’re planning on having zero more kids. And no one rents better maternity wear than Rent the Runway. There are organic options available, and of course, renting clothing instead of buying it is super-sustainable.

My pick: It hardly matters here, because their stock changes frequently with the seasons – and whatever you get is temporary, anyway. But, this off the shoulder, stripey number is pretty sweet!

2. Frugi Swoop Blouse

Frugi is one of the best known ethical maternity clothing brands around. They not only make organic maternity clothes, but organic baby wear, too!

My pick: Designed to take you all the way from bump to breastfeeding, this comfy blouse grows with you! It’s made of 95% organic cotton jersey, and be moved to each side to reveal the cleverly integrated vest underneath with low armholes, perfect for easier feedings!

3. Jojo Maman Bebe

Up here in the north, there’s one thing we definitely do need when we’re growing a baby inside us – a cozy coat. These can be pretty hard to find, as coats are generally not as baggy as sweats or tees, for example. But luckily, Jojo Maman Bebe makes a great range, from military style, formal coats, to roomy parkas.

My pick: There are loads of coats from this label that I love, but I bought the padded jacket, which has zips that can expand or contract the size of the coat, meaning you can wear it even once the babe is born.

4. Boob Design’s Amelia Jumpsuit

Boob Design was a brand born way back in 1999, when one woman noted the lack of stylish and functional clothing for nursing mums. Every item in Boob Design’s collections has to adhere to strict criteria: it must be ethically made from sustainable materials; be functional, and of high quality. And did I mention that the entire collection is certified 100 percent OEKO-Tex, which means that “garments are free from substances known to be harmful to health?”

My pick: Inspired by the first pilot to fly across the Atlantic, the appropriately named Amelia jumpsuit is the ultimate piece of clothing for the working woman. It’s perfect whether you’re pregnant or nursing. Designed for comfort and style, the jumpsuit is made out of a super stretchy recycled cotton blend that will grow with your bump.

5. The Notched Blouse by Hatch

Being pregnant doesn’t mean you want to cover your body up under a tent dress and hide nine months. So thank goodness Hatch is determined to make garments that allow pregnant women to look and feel sexy.

My pick: I love this gorgeous, indigo hued slouchy shirt made from a cotton/Tencel blend. I adore the voluminous sleeves and the deep V collar. The length is perfect for pairing with tights or jeans, too.

6. Boob Design Once-On-Never-Off Pants

When you buy a garment from Boob, you buy a product that has been produced with care. The brand only uses fabrics that are certified STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®. Some of the sustainable materials they use are organic and recycled cotton, recycled polyamide, and recycled wool.

My pick: These elasticated, organic cotton pants are so damn comfy that the brand reckons once they’re on, they’re not coming off…until the baby starts demanding to be born, I assume! But even after that, these are sure to be a wardrobe staple, since they’re as comfy as track pants, but far, far more stylish.

7. Tiffany Rose Maternity

This ethical fashion label is best known for their maternity evening wear and wedding gowns. However they also offer a wide range of more casual dresses to suit any occasion, from the office to a picnic in the park.

My pick: I love so much about this dress: the sapphire hue, the lace, and the fact that if you look at it full-on frontally, it barely looks like you’re pregnant, right?

8. Séraphine Sky Blue Floral Woven Maternity Dress

Looking for a brand that has the royal seal of approval? Séraphine is a London-based maternity line that is much-loved by Kate Middleton. The label offers chic, sophisticated style of expectant mothers, and sell everything from jeans to dresses. All garments are ethically made from all natural materials, and the brand also gives a portion of profits to mothering charities.

My pick: This maternity dress is so light and pretty, it just may stop me from feeling gross.

9. Mamamoosh Maternity Dressing Gown

It’s a shocking fact that some of us bloom so much during pregnancy, that even our bathrobes fail to fit! But no worries – Mamamoosh makes chic dressing gowns ethically in London from a soft, light cotton jersey. All are cut with a wider front panel to accommodate a growing bump. Perfect to quickly sling on during all those night wakings after birth.

My pick: I like the colours in this number, and like the fact that the belt is positioned to go above the bump, and is partially sewn in at the back so it doesn’t fall out. There’s also a handy good-sized pocket discretely sewn into the side seam.

10. Hatch Katie Cotton and Tencel Blend Midi Dress

Hatch’s clothes are designed to look and feel great for expectant moms on the go. The New York label’s collections are defined by chic, billowy silhouettes that will remain everyday favorites, even after the baby is born.

My pick: If you’re having a summer baby, then this breezy dress is a must for those warmer summer days when you’re keen to wear something that’s both comfy and feminine. The elasticated bust and knotted shoulder straps perfectly accommodate a blossoming baby bump – and ever-expanding boobs!

11. April White Tunic by People Tree

People Tree is a pioneer in the ethical fashion field, and is well known for growing its own organic cotton in India, where its clothing is also made by FairTrade paid workers.

My pick: A white tunic style shirt is a classic in any wardrobe, and People Tree make a wonderful organic cotton one. Lightweight, oversized and easy to wear, the great thing about this shirt is it can be worn to work with slacks or at the beach as a cover-up.

12. Frugi Bloom Dress

Yep, it’s another dress by Frugi- and why not? This is your one-stop-shop for all things organic for not only you, but your baby, too.

My pick: Made from organic, breathable cotton, I cannot resist the easy, breezy style of this dress. It’s  simple, whilst remaining incredibly feminine. Plus I love the denim-blue hue!

13. Kindred Bravely Nursing Bra

If anything you buy for your pregnancy wardrobe should be organic, it’s your nursing bra. It’s a scary fact that clothing dyes and finishes can leach into your milk ducts and lymph glands, contaminating your breast milk – and your breast tissue! But Kindred Bravely makes 100% organic cotton bras that are not only good for your health, but are easy to use, too.

My pick: I’d take this nude-hued bra, which you can easily wear under blouses of any colour.

14. Mamalicious Maxi Dress

Mamalicious doesn’t make all their maternity clothing from natural materials – most are viscose. But the organic choices are pretty gorgeous!

My pick: Sometimes you just want to cover up everything, and this cotton jersey dress does just that! Made from organic cotton jersey, it’s a classic style that you can dress up or dress down – and the best part? Mamalicious makes ethical maternity clothing that doesn’t cost the earth – this dress is only $35!

    Aggregate information (non-personally identifiable information)

    Eluxe Magazine may, from time to time, automatically collect aggregate information about our visitors to our advertisers, sponsors, promotional partners and affiliates. This aggregate information includes, but is not limited to, IP addresses connecting to our site, how many persons visited a particular page or activity, dates and times of image uploads, device characteristics, operating system, browser type, type of connection, page and image viewing statistics, and incoming and outgoing links.

    Like most websites, we use log files to store this information. None of this automatically collected technical information is associated with any identified person at the time it is collected, but it could be associated with you under two circumstances: First, if you choose to give us personal data about you as described above, the technical information we collect that would otherwise be anonymous could instead be logged as coming from you. Second, if we are required to disclose our server logs as a result of a subpoena or other legal process, some third party such as your internet provider could match our anonymous technical information with you, using information beyond what is found on our servers.

    Eluxe Magazine may use cookies, web beacons, pixel tags, or other anonymous tracking information to improve our server’s interaction with your computer, and we may partner with third party advertisers who may (themselves or through their partners) place or recognise a unique cookie on your browser. These cookies enable more customised ads, content, or services to be provided to you. To trigger these cookies, we may pass an encrypted or “hashed” (non-human readable) identifier corresponding to your email address to a Web advertising partner, who may place a cookie on your computer. No personally identifiable information is on, or is connected to, these cookies. Although our servers currently don’t respond to “do-not-track” requests (see below), you can block these cookies in other ways, for example by searching “[your browser] + disable cookies.”

    Eluxe Magazine will never share, sell, lease, or rent PII to unaffiliated third parties, except in the following circumstances:

    a) If we have a good faith belief that we must disclose such information for legal reasons, such as to enforce our Terms of Service, protect or assert the rights, property interests, or personal safety of Eluxe (including its employees, directors, suppliers, distributors, service providers, users of the Website or others), or if we are otherwise required to disclose such information by law. We will disclose information only to the extent necessary to comply with the purpose of the request.

    b) We may share aggregate, anonymous or summary information regarding our customers and their behaviors with partners, advertisers or other third parties. This data is not personal information and so will not identify you personally. We may share information with companies that provide support services to us, such as a printer, mailing house, fulfillment-company, credit card processor, email service provider or web host, amongst others. These parties may need personal information about you in order to perform their functions. However, these parties may not use any personal information we share with them about you for any other purpose other than in connection with performing supporting functions for us.

    You have the right at any time to prevent us from contacting you for marketing purposes. If and when we send a promotional communication to a user, the user can opt out of further promotional communications by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in each promotional e-mail. Please note that notwithstanding the promotional preferences you indicate by unsubscribing or opting out in some other fashion, we may continue to send you administrative emails including, for example, periodic updates to our Privacy Policy.

    In order to access a profile on Eluxe Magazine’s shop, you must first create an account with a username and password. The registration system requires that a valid email address be used to confirm the account. You should choose a username that does not include your last name and does not specify your city or your address. Eluxe Magazine asks that you use your first name only, or an alias, for your display name. This is to safeguard your privacy and protection. We do not use and cannot access this information.

    Eluxe Magazine is 100% opposed to unsolicited commercial email (“spam”). We do not have any desire to send unsolicited marketing emails to anyone without permission and we do not sell or provide user email addresses to any unauthorised third party in violation of this Policy. All of our newsletters and other general email marketing communications also include an “unsubscribe” opt-out link that you may use to tell us to stop sending you marketing emails.

    In the event of a change in control resulting from, for example, a sale to, or merger with, another entity, or in the event of a sale of assets or a bankruptcy, Eluxe Magazine reserves the right to transfer your personal information to the new party in control, or the party acquiring assets. We will only do so if the party we transfer the information to agrees that they will abide by our Privacy Policy for as long as they hold the information, and that they will not transfer the information to any other party who will not abide by our Privacy Policy.

    We use third-party advertising companies to deliver online advertising. These companies facilitate the delivery of ads, conduct market research, and use cookies for record-keeping purposes. These cookies sometimes enable the companies to serve you ads tailored to things you have shown an interest in based on your prior web activity. This is generally known as behavioral advertising. For example, this means that if you frequently read movie reviews online, it is possible that you might see ads on other websites relating to upcoming movies. Online advertising companies generally conduct this activity in an anonymous format, with online information not combined with information that would allow for your identification.

    The third-party companies that will be serving advertisements on Eluxe Magazine may include DoubleClick, Google and Taboola.

    We may periodically modify, alter, or update these policies. We will alert users to any material changes to this policy by posting the revised information here. We encourage you to review our Privacy Policy on a regular basis to stay informed about how we are protecting the personal information we collect. Your continued use of TGT’s website constitutes your agreement to this Privacy Policy and any future updates.
