Nelly – A Great New Site for Stylish Maternity WearWritten by simplymaternity on Tuesday 22nd of May 2012
When High Street retailers such as New Look first started offering Maternity Clothes, it was a dream come true – finally there were high street fashions available to any woman who wanted to celebrate their pregnancy rather than hide it. Shops suddenly started to acknowledge that just because we are pregnant, doesn’t mean we don’t want to look good, and here at Simply Maternity we jumped for joy (well it made our job a whole lot easier!).
Well now the number one online retailer in the Nordic region, Nelly, is coming to the UK and bringing with them a range of maternity wear that combines high street style and designer lines to give you a complete range of styles and fashions that we think are going to break the mould of what the pregnant woman in the UK wants to wear.
We could spout on all day about the benefits of shopping with Nelly from the free delivery on every order to the fabulous customer service, but we were so taken with the clothes on the site that we thought we would give our staff the ultimate in maternity challenge and ask them to find at least one decent maternity skirt that women would actually want to wear.
Well it turned out that this was no challenge at all. Nelly is stacked full of great maternity skirts for all occasions and they don’t just look good but they feel great too.
Skirts are such a versatile item of clothing in the standard wardrobe, but when it comes to maternity clothes, many women shy away from skirts as they can be incredibly unflattering and very uncomfortable. Though the pencil skirt and maternity denim skirt are great as capsule pieces in any woman’s wardrobe, if you want to go for something a bit different it was nearly impossible to find something – but that has all changed with the introduction of the maternity lines from Nelly, the range is fabulous, the colours are great and the materials are giving but high quality, so all you have to do is decide which one is for you:
Maternity Maxi Skirt from MOM2MOM
This maxi skirt from MOM2MOM was one of the first things that caught our eye when we started looking at Nelly. The shape and flow of this skirt is elegance itself and the short train adds an element of sophistication that makes this skirt ideal for any occasion.
Designed by Isabel Adrian, at £80.95 it is not the cheapest item you are going to find on the site, but the sheer quality of the soft material that flows fluidly over your bump combined with the 30cm elasticated band that can be worn up for support or folded down, gives you a maternity skirt that you are going to want to wear every day of your pregnancy and then for the weeks after it as well.
Even putting this skirt on makes you feel like a princess. Suddenly you lose all the weight and clumsiness that comes with being pregnant and regain the femininity that is so lacking in a lot of maternity styles. Available in Black, Beige or Brown, this is a must have for the summer season and a great way to treat yourself or a loved one during pregnancy.
For funky fashion is velour skirt by Sobea Design has everything you need. The length of this skirt is so on trend right now and so flattering for the pregnant woman. The slim cut extends your height while slimming down your tummy and, the slight flare and funky slide slits to the skirt itself, give your legs length and shape so that you have a neat but up to date skirt that you can wear anywhere.
Looking great in this picture with heels, this skirt also looks perfect with boots and even with sandals and slip ons for a more relaxed style.
Available in blue, black or this gorgeous brown, the skirt is completed with the Sobea logo embroidered on the side of the skirt and a 23cm waistband that can be worn above or below your bump as the mood takes you.
Machine washable at 40 degrees and made of 80% organic cotton and 20% polyester, this skirt has all the style that you could want during your pregnancy combined with the comfort and practicality that you just can’t do without.
Mama-licious Grace Denim Skirt
No self respecting maternity line can call itself ‘fashionable’ without a good quality denim maternity skirt, but as with all the products on the site, Nelly do things just a little bit differently
This skirt comes with a wide elastic ribbing that not only provides support for the stomach but also offers a smooth line that improves the lie of even the sheerest of tops.
With an adjustable elastic waistband and a two button fastener, this trendy skirt comes complete with two front pockets and two back pockets as well as short slits to the rear to provide that added element of style in a fantastic looking skirt.
And if this has whet your appetite for a new way of looking at your maternity wardrobe, then click on any of the skirts above to be taken to the full Nelly site and see how you can create a pregnancy style to be proud of.
