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

  1. 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.

  1. 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.

  1. 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!

  1. 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.

  1. 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!

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.


How to Clean & Use Your Spectra Breast Pump April 19, 2016 20:38

Here are some helpful tips about cleaning your Spectra Canada Breast Pump!

First time use

  • Sterilize all parts of the breast shield kit excluding the tubing using your preferred sterilization.
  • ​You DO NOT need to sterilize the tubing as it will not be in contact with your breast milk.
  • And DO NOT sterilize the breast pump body.


After each use

  • Disassemble and wash all parts of your breast shield kit that come into contact with your breast and breast milk and wash in warm soapy water and rinse it in clean water and airdry on clean towel.
  • Keep parts covered when not in use.

Which is Better: Reusable Nursing Pads or Disposable? April 6, 2016 10:35

There are many reasons why women use washable nursing pads as opposed to purchasing disposable ones. Ultimately the decision will be based on your individual needs but below we lay out some of the pros and cons for each.


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.

Supportive Comfort: Choosing the Perfect Nursing Bra For After Baby is Born March 4, 2015 23:44

For all my lovely ladies who cannot come into the store, this is a blog all about choosing the best nursing bras for your hospital bag and for when supportive comfort is what you crave.

First thing is I'm referring to nursing 'bras' in the plural form because you will need more than one! We say three is the minimum so that you have one to wear, one in the wash and one that is ready to change into when your little angel deposits puke, poop or whatever on you (sorry).

Second point I would like to address is that at some point in recent history, a surely well-intentioned person suggested that women should wait until the baby is born to buy nursing bras. It seems like it could make sense but NO DON'T WAIT!! After seeing a number of women with 2-day old babies hobble into the store desperate for a bra (and sleep) I would like to respectfully suggest that there is no need to wait to buy a bra.

Quality nursing bras are made of materials that will adapt to your changing body. Simply buy a bra designed for breastfeeding with material that stretches and make sure there is room to grow in the cup and room to shrink in the band.

Chances are when your milk comes in you will go up one or two cup sizes and at the same time once the baby is born your rib cage will shrink back down (especially if you employ post-partum compression).

Now some of you may be thinking, "What if I can't nurse? I don't want to waste money on nursing bras." This is the biggest myth of all. Yes some women cannot breastfeed for medical reasons. Many women who can in fact breastfeed get stressed, get bad advice, get discouraged and give up. It becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. We are afraid we can't do it and that baby is hungry and it hurts etc. so we supplement with formula and then because when it comes to breastfeeding 'demand equals supply' and there is less demand (nursing), we end up with less supply (milk). 

The best advice was from a nurse who told me to give it 6 weeks before I gave up. And then at 6 weeks, I promised myself to go until 3 months and then by 3 months...heck I had spent that money on those bras - no way I was giving up! 

Ok so back to getting you some fabulous nursing bras... (the kind you will thank me about via email!) most likely if you are packing your hospital bag or just had your baby, you will want a bra that you can fall asleep in and that will be super gentle on your tender breasts. 

So without further delay here are Luna's Top 3 Supportive Comfort Bras in order of popularity:

1. Bravado Bodysilk Bra - Our most popular bra offers the coverage of a sports bra with removable pads.

2. Boob Fast Food Bra - Very stretchy, less 'bra' than the bodysilk and cute enough for Gwen Stefani to rock.

3. Cache Coeur 3D Light - made of spacer foam, women say it feels like air. Most supportive of the comfort bras.

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.


4 Things I Wish I Did When I Was Pregnant June 29, 2014 22:55

1. Use Tummy Butter – Not only is the (light) massaging motion awesome for moving blood to the skin’s surface – vital to preventing stretch marks – but it is also a perfect way to connect with baby. Too often we are pulled in so many directions we hardly have time to connect with our little one growing inside. Since the skin is our body’s largest organ, it is worth it to use a product with an ingredient list we can pronounce.  Not the cheapest on the market but the reviews from women everywhere sold me on the non-toxic Spoiled Mama brand.
2. Fight the Frump – Despite the many joys, in this body-obsessed world the weight gained during a pregnancy can be hard on our sense of self. Echoing the words of a gorgeous customer, as we get bigger we should dress up instead of dressing down. In the fight against ‘Feeling Frumpy’ (a serious enemy of self-esteem) the power of a versatile maternity dress and some accessories should not be underestimated.
3. Take Maternity Photos – There is no need for 3000 photos but you will be glad you took the time for maternity photos. I wanted to but I waited and then I got busy and then I felt huge and now the only photo left of myself pregnant is both frumpy and shot from the wrong angle. That’s why our favourite store promotion is the free mini-maternity photo session and free 5x7 from BoyGirl Photography. Be inspired by these Luna Bellies
4. Get Out of the Gown – Although you will no longer technically be pregnant, please, please, please learn from my mistakes and pack something nice (and nursing-friendly) to change into after baby is born. It will do you (and baby’s first photos) a world of good.

Why Bother With Nursing Clothes May 6, 2014 15:08

Clothes designed with access for breastfeeding will make your life easier.  You just had a baby - do you really want to whip up your shirt time baby needs to eat?! Rewind a few years back, just about to leave the hospital with my little guy and all of a sudden the frantic cries for food began - at that point I remember starting to hike my long dress up trying to feed this crying baby and the lactation consultant looked at me and asked, "Didn't you know you were having a baby?". Whether you are leaving the hospital, at the mall, going for a walk, in the car, sitting on your couch at home or awake for a night-time feeding - a nursing shirt, nursing dress or nursing pyjama will help you maintain your comfort and style while breastfeeding. 

 

 

 


Be Good To Your Girls March 6, 2014 14:11

For most women, heaviness or tenderness of the breasts is one of the first signs of pregnancy.  

There is no prize for suffering - your breasts are growing, your rib cage is growing - you need a bra that can adapt.

Try to avoid buying a regular bra in a bigger size - you will not be that size again - buy a bra that can grow and shrink with you.

For some, there is a mental block involved with undergarments - even when they are digging in and hurting - we resist change.

Undergarments that don't fit create bumps and lumps that make us feel fat instead of pregnant.

Good bra = good foundation: customers instantly look and feel better when they make the switch to something that fits!

Many women wear a sleep bra to bed - try it and you will wonder why you didn't do it sooner.

Be good to your girls and they will be good to you!!
