Looking for the perfect gift that will get used and be appreciated by the mom or mom-to-be in your life!?!
Just imagine your daughter, niece, sister-in-law, coming home - probably achy and sore - slipping into her comfy hoodie and pants or her uber-soft nightie and robe.
She may feel guilty buying herself nice things so a little piece of practical luxury will provide comfort time and again, making it a much loved gift.
Here are our top 3 suggestions for the perfect gift:
Check Out Boob Pregnancy & Nursing Wear Fall/Winter 2017 September 28, 2017 12:00
If you care about superb quality clothing and comfortable fabrics that are good for baby, mom and the earth then you are going to love Boob pregnancy and nursing wear. Boob fashion doesn't only feel good - it is also very flattering! Once you have tried the Swedish original you will fall for their functional pieces and understand why they are a top Luna seller! Here is what we are loving from the newly arrived fall/winter 2017 season.
1. AMAZING ORGANIC KNITS
This is THE perfect sweater for Fall & Winter. Made from 100% certified organic cotton - it is super cozy and super functional. A classic mock-neck style it features Boob Design's signature nursing access; simply lift up under bust for easy access. We love how warm and soft it feels!
2. ATHLEISURE THAT IS NOT MADE BY CHILDREN
I have always cared about the environment but after becoming a mom I realized how often fast fashion uses child labour and that my money was the only way to do the talking. This super cute new raglan sleeve maternity top has Boob's smart nursing function hidden behind the fleece-lined bust. It is the epitome of chill and is perfect for play dates, school drop offs and escape days. Not only is it super soft and comfortable, it is made of quality organic cotton with a fleece lining made from recycled PET bottles. How cool is that?!?
3. A DO EVERYTHING PREGNANCY SKIRT
They call this skirt Once on Never Off for a reason! It is so comfortable and flattering that once you put it on you won't want to take it off. Many women who declared that they don't wear skirts have discovered that this item is perfect for dressing up their leggings and providing a little classy butt coverage while still being uber comfortable. You can wear it over the belly, fold it under, wear it long, wear it short, with tops tucked in or not...so many ways to love this black pregnancy skirt.
Check out Luna's entire Boob Collection HERE. So many pieces to love!
p.s. All fabrics are OEKO-Tex 100 Standard Certified. This means that they have been manufactured to be completely free from harmful toxins, a guarantee that you can wear these items safely on your bare skin.

You Don't Have to Wear a Dress for Your Maternity Photos June 25, 2016 15:08
Yes I said it and you can tell your aunt/mother/husband I said so. Not everybody feels their best in a dress and there is no reason to force yourself when you already might not be feeling exactly in your prime. Surely you have a lot of other more pressing subjects to concern yourself with - why add "try to please others" to your list! Oh yea she said it. A cute top like THIS crochet (slightly A-line) top from Seraphine doesn't cling and really flatters. This top can be dressed up easily with a classic pearls for a garden party look or with distressed denim and sneakers a la Gwen Stefani. It is also a nursing top that doesn't look like a nursing top which means you will love to wear it for years to come! Or go for THIS really uber hottie maternity and beyond top from Elpasa in Europe. You have plenty of options - a cute maternity skirt and top for a fresh feel, or if you are a jeans girl - why not wear jeans like THIS for a lighter modern look or THESE if you like a more classic dark wash! Whether you want a long and flowing pregnant Goddess feel or boots and jeggings, try to find a photographer who can read people and does the extra work to have the personality of the client taken into consideration when suggesting poses, backdrops and the overall feel of the shoot. One of our favourite giveaways for our GTA and Toronto ladies is the free mini-maternity shoot and free 5 x 7 from BoyGirl Photography. Shout out to Cristina Sacco who always has her clients at the centre of her work! www.boygirlphotography.com.
Look & Feel Amazing Pregnant ! Fight the Frump! March 2, 2016 11:11
For some women the growing body that comes with pregnancy is an exciting and glorious time. For many however, there is also a struggle to embrace 'getting bigger' ... quite understandable in our society where gaining weight is a sign of weakness. As with any weight gain (never mind the fact that there is another human growing in us!) there is a tendency to dress down, wear baggy clothes and essentially try to fade into then background. This is one of the worst things we can do for our self esteem. As we get bigger, let's do ourselves a favour and dress up instead of dressing down. We all know how much looking good is tied to feeling good. So go ahead - wear a dress to the mall? Why not? Makeup and jewelry to hang with friends - darn right! Fight the frump - celebrate your bump! Shop our huge selection of stylish maternity dresses HERE.

Why Are There So Few Designer Maternity Stores In a City As Big As Toronto?? May 30, 2015 00:30
If you ask a woman from our mother's generation they will tell you that we should consider ourselves lucky because when they were pregnant - there really were NO maternity stores in or around Toronto offering stylish fashion for pregnant women. Period. Apparently we should consider ourselves lucky that we can now find a handful of pregnancy shops carrying stylish maternity and sometimes cute nursing wear within the 4 corners of the GTA.

Why Buying Cheap Maternity Clothes Doesn't Save You Money February 21, 2015 09:48I have always been a price-oriented shopper - the sale rack is where I start in every store. I have learned an important lesson over the years, which is - that in most cases - we get what we pay for. Nowhere is that more true than in maternity clothing. Simply because you will be washing and wearing a few core pieces again and again. I bought a pair of black maternity pants from the mall - after 2 washes they were no longer black and my butt was sagging! I ended up buying another pair and the same thing - fading, pilling and crappy fit - after only a few washes. So two pairs of black maternity pants and I still didn't have anything to wear. Did buying cheap save me money? Paying more for something I love to wear and feel fabulous in is smart - otherwise the item sits in the back of our closet - I got a great deal - but I never wear it...is that saving money?
Maternity Leggings: A Pregnant Woman's Best Friend January 24, 2015 22:57
One of the most common remarks we hear from women trying on clothes in our store is, "Wow! This is so comfortable!".
Yes we all love the idea of 'saving' and somehow we have it in our head that there is some award for suffering with discomfort...actually the opposite is true. We can get the unjust title of 'a complainer'!
Pregnancy already comes with its own set of discomforts - why add to them by trying to wear clothes that almost fit, kinda fit or fit as long as you don't move, breathe or bend over.
A basic pair of black maternity leggings are a pregnancy must-have. Everybody has their own idea of a perfect leggings but the Seraphine maternity legging is a best-seller for 6 basic reasons:
1. The price - we sell them for only $40.
2. The band goes up all the way over the tummy (or can be folded down). This means no annoying line in the middle of your tummy - even when you are really big - and no discomfort whatsoever.
3. They have a very slight sheen - meaning they can be worn with dressier tops and dresses as well - they don't look like sweatpants.
4. Very breathable! You can sleep in these leggings and they are perfect for pre-labour.
5. Totally opaque - even when you bend over, even in the sun, even if you had a big lunch.
6. They wash really well - no fading, no pilling - wash after wash (assuming they don't mistakenly get put in the dryer with hubby's socks!)
Remember there is no award for trudging through pregnancy, stretching out your pre-pregnancy clothes or buying one size bigger and pretending they fit everywhere else!
You deserve comfort, you deserve quality - and at $40 a pair - these are crafted with the stylish and economical woman in mind.

Sophisticated Maternity Dresses – Yes, We Have Those Too!
Don’t assume that a sexy maternity dress has to resemble something ultra sleek and hot along the lines of lingerie. Feeling sexy while you are pregnant starts with truly loving what you are wearing. Let’s be honest for a moment; wearing big baggy clothes just isn’t going to do the trick. Try combining an elegant maternity dress with a sexy maternity bra to make you feel incredible and emit that beautiful pregnancy glow!
With so many women opting to maintain pre-pregnancy style throughout their term it has resulted in a much larger selection of stylish dresses to select from. Some might blame society for the added pressure to remain beautiful, but the majority of women have the inner desire to feel and look their best throughout their pregnancy.
5 Simple Tips to Feel Ultra Sexy During Your Pregnancy
- Stay away from baggy clothes.
Simply put, you aren’t going to feel sexy wearing big baggy clothes. There is absolutely nothing wrong with proudly and elegantly showing off your changing form, so wear beautiful dresses with flattering cuts and fabrics.
- Don’t be afraid of color.
Black and white are always a great choice, but don’t be afraid to try a bold color or a wild print. Gone are the days that women try to mask the baby bump, so get with the times and show it off to the world with a comfortable and sexy maternity dress from one of our excellent designers.
- Heels can still be your friend.
We aren’t talking about six-inch stilettos here, but there is no rule against wearing a one or two inch heel that elongates your legs and creates a sleek and sexy shape. Match your sexy maternity dress with a pair of black pumps to really set your outfit off!
- Don’t ditch the makeup just yet.
There are several all-natural organic brands of makeup that can be safely used throughout your pregnancy. While you are going to carry a natural glow, complimenting it with smoky eyes and some neutral lips can really make you feel sexy.
- Emit confidence.
If you feel confident inside then it is going to radiate through, and dressing in maternity clothes that make you feel beautiful and sexy is going to help turn that confidence up a notch!
Our entire line of sexy maternity dresses are so stylish that you will be glad to know that most will grown and shrink with you so that you can wear them for years not months!

Stand Up Straight July 9, 2014 11:38
Nothing improves the way we look and feel faster than good posture - standing up straight, shoulders back and head held high. Yet all the lovingly repeated cradling, protecting, carrying, hugging, feeding, bending, picking up, cradling, protecting, hugging, feeding, bending, picking up of motherhood can wreak havoc on our posture. This of course will eventually wreak havoc on our health and well-being. Here is a super simple and effective way to straighten up. Stand with your back against a wall and move the heels of your feet, your buttocks, shoulders and the back of your head back to touch the wall. Take a few breaths and feel your shoulders lower. Continue breathing (duh) and walk away from the wall. I love to do this when I am getting ready in the morning or find myself stressed during the day - I literally walk away a new person.
