Shopping for Maternity

New to maternity shopping? Have a few questions? You are not alone, read this section for our FAQs about maternity clothing.

Go with pre-pregnancy sizing, as our maternity clothes are designed to accommodate for your changing curves.

For any further questions regarding sizing (or other inquiries), always feel free to Contact Us.

Thanks to our experienced team, you’ll find honest solutions to dress your changing body with ease.

Every body and every pregnancy is different. It's best to start when you feel uncomfortable in your current clothing, or when you aren't feeling your best with how things are fitting.

All of the styles we have at CARRY are designed to grow with you, therefore the earlier you invest in your maternity items the most use you will get out of them.

Many styles also feature nursing access, and look just as good without a pregnancy bump, and can be added to your rotation postpartum.

First-time pregnancies can be daunting because one morning you wake up and suddenly none of your regular clothes fit. Depending on your lifestyle, the recommended essentials for everyone can be different. 

CARRY's Basics Collection features a carefully curated selection of high-quality versatile dresses, and separates.

In addition to clothing, skin care essentials like Belly Butter help your skin stretch comfortably and reduces the risk of long-term damage.

All of the styles we offer at CARRY are carefully selected because they're designed to grow with you from month 1 to 9, and beyond.

Maternity styles have been adjusted in the bust, belly & hips to accommodate for your changing curves.

Nursing-friendly styles are perfect to transition from maternity to the fourth trimester and make feeding your baby easy, no matter where your day takes you.

If you have questions about the longevity of a style, always feel free to Contact Us with your measurements and we can personally ensure you get the most out of your purchases.

Maternity Jeans seem like a tricky purchase, however if you follow our size guide (based on your pre-pregnancy sizing), you will be happy to discover the comfort and styles there are to offer.

The biggest consideration to keep in mind is your preference to Over vs. Under the belly fit.

Let's face it, your boobs go through lots of changes during your pregnancy and nursing journey. The good news is that all of our Maternity Bras are also Nursing Bras!

Nursing bras are designed for all stages of motherhood. From the moment you find out you're pregnant until you are ready to wean off. Their transitional sizing and supportive fit offers optimal support without a wire.

We recommend making the switch as soon as your current bras feel uncomfortable to get a long life out of your bras and to avoid impulse buying bras that you'll grow out of or deep diving in your wardrobe for old workout bras.

Your maternity clothing will be the most used and reused clothing you will ever own, so it's important to properly care for them.

We recommend washing in cold water and hanging your pieces to dry as a standard to ensure the dryer does not break down the spandex that allow our styles to stretch and grow with you.

Your bras should be washed inside out in a mesh bag and hung to dry to prolong their life.

The short answer, YES!

Maternity clothing is great for postpartum as a transitional wardrobe as you come down from delivery. Those maternity jeans you invested in will give you a little extra wiggle room as you bend over baby.

Lots of maternity styles have nursing access to allow easy feeding access when you're on the move, and increase your likelihood of a successful nursing journey.

Shopping for Nursing

Preparing for delivery? Just started nursing? We have all the essentials you need.

Nursing clothing differs from other maternity styles because they are thoughtfully designed to have discreet access points.

Nursing clothing creates convenience when you're on the go, and gives you a clear visual while you and baby learn together.

Absolutely! We encourage our customers to get the most from their nursing-friendly wardrobe by wearing the styles through their pregnancy. If you're just discovering nursing-friendly options, don't worry! They are flattering during the 4th trimester and beyond.

You can purchase nursing bras at any point during your pregnancy. We recommend switching when you begin to feel uncomfortable in your everyday bras. Our nursing bras feature support and comfort without the need of a wire.

If you are preparing for delivery we always recommend having at least 3 on hand before delivery, purchased around 36 weeks. In early days with baby you'll be happy to have multiple bras in rotation.

Book a virtual appointment with one of our staff to get the best fit for you.

We recommend at least 3-5 nursing bras to prepare for delivery. Milk is messy, so make sure you always have something comfortable and clean to put on.

We also recommend getting Leakproof Nursing Pads to keep you feeling dry, and to create a barrier so that milk doesn't end up on your bra.
