The latest spring styles and buys for you and your little ones
MUM’S FEEL-GOOD TIP “Look and feel gorgeous everyday…when your body starts to change during pregnancy, add a maternity bra to your shopping list. Matching sets are a must. My chest nearly doubled in size, so choose one that fastens on the tightest hook to make sure it expands with you.” Nicky Hambleton Jones, TV stylist
ahoy there mateys!
Mamas’ Maternity Sets Forget frumpy underwear basics during your pregnancy and treat yourself to the bloomin’ gorgeous new maternity lingerie range from Mamas & Papas. With the help of TV stylist Nicky Hambleton-Jones, practical shapes and comfy designs have met pretty prints, lace and satin for a lingerie range you’ll want to keep long after the baby arrives. We love this slate coloured satin and lace luxury maternity bra, £36, and matching short, £15, plus the ditsy floral print, nursing bra, £25, with the easy-to-use sling and clip features for feeding. Created by mum of two Rachael Dunseath, milly & flossy products are free from harsh synthetics that can irritate young skin, and kind enough to be used from birth. We love the Baby Bath milk, £10, in lavender (also available fragrance free) and multi-use Baby Balm, £6, great as a nappy cream or dry-skin moisturiser. www.millyandflossy.co.uk
With the new nautical inspired children’s range from Next your fashionable little sailors will be ready for anything. Spot & Stripe dresses, checked shirts, polo tops, light knitwear and beachy denim are all perfect pieces for play dates and parties alike. www.next.co.uk
