New Mum Review
I ordered the size Bshirt in both the black and white colour in size 14. Having suffered through the gauntlet of ordering maternity clothes online and the randomness of the sizing disparities, I was happy to find the sizing of the Bshirt to be accurate and whilst slightly more generous than the average it was a very definite size 14 and fit nicely.
Fabric & Quality
I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the material. Thicker than most of the cheaper vest breast feeding tops it feels like it offers more support and shaping. Something I really like about the top as I found keeps the ‘less toned’ parts of me sucked in a bit and gives me a nice shape.
Practicality of Breast Feeding
Being a fairly self-conscious public breast feeder I normally use one of those around-the-neck breast feeding screens, however with the Bshirt I found that I could put baby onto the boob and then move the flap part of the top down a little to cover what was left exposed. This was a much better experience as it was easier and quicker than using the screen.
I was sceptical (having brought maternity and breast feeding clothes online and having had a real mixture of good and bad) that the Bshirt would live up to the hype, however I really like them and think that the quality of the top in regards to size and fabric is good. It is also great and easy to breast feed in them as they are well designed and discreet. I am definitely happy with my purchases and will most probably buy some others in some different colours.
Happy holidays – Bshirt’s top summer tips, from packing essentials to keeping your baby cool…
Sun Safety – According to the official advice given by the NHS, babies less than 6 months old should be kept out of direct sunlight. This is because babies skin contains too little melanin, which provides some protection from the sun. High factor sunscreen should be applied regularly, and we love Childs Farm 50+SPF sun spray which is water resistant and perfect for sensitive skin. As a fellow award winning British brand, they are the perfect size to pop into your beach bag.
Say Farewell to the Sneezes – Breastfeeding mums rejoice! There is a solution to the hayfever summer sniffles, in the form of HayMax. Drug free and non-drowsy it is a barrier balm that you simply apply to the base of the nose and around the bones of the eyes to reduce pollen, dust and pet allergens entering the body.
Hands Free Travel – When you’re heading out for the day, the easiest way we found to get around was with a handy light weight sling. Ring slings are perfect for summer as they are easy to take on and off and a fellow Devon based brand, Mezaya, is a stylish option which will blend seamlessly in with your lifestyle and your outfit.
Totally Topical – Available in a range of colours, the Bshirt can be worn on its own or under an outfit to make it accessible for breastfeeding. No need to buy a whole new post-pregnancy wardrobe, the Bshirt means you can get back to wearing the clothes you love, enabling you to breastfeed with confidence. With no clips, zips or buttons for fuss free practical feeding, plus the weekly fashion edits provide plenty of ideas and inspiration on how to style it.
Pack the Pads – Don’t get caught short when on a long flight or car journey! Washable breast pads provide the perfect solution to avoid leakages. Washable and reusable, the Bshirt pads are made the same way as washable nappies are – with an absorbent core and waterproof outer layer using organic cotton and bamboo. So you can rest assured that your wardrobe won’t be ruined – and neither will the planet. Our handy wet bag means you’ll have somewhere to store them until you get to your destination.
