A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by Envie de Fraises with a request to review their maternity and nursing clothing. This is a super exciting opportunity especially because this trendy maternity wear from France is now also available for sale in the United States. Gwen Stefani absolutely loves Envie de Fraises and has been spotted wearing several of their outfits in the recent months. In fact, Envie de Fraises sent me two of the dresses favored by Gwen Stefani to give away to you, my lovely readers!!! You can find details on how to enter for your chance to win one of the two dresses bellow after the review.
Since I already had my baby, I was interested in reviewing nursing clothes. There are tons of nursing tops and dresses available out on the market but I find the overwhelming majority of them to be frumpy and ridiculously expensive. I was really excited to see that Envie de Fraises carried a variety of stylish nursing wear. The cool thing about the majority of this brand’s nursing clothing is that it can be worn during pregnancy and after delivery. When it comes to saving money, this factor is super important for moms that plan on nursing. Instead of investing into maternity wear then again to nursing tops, you can just upgrade your wardrobe once. I asked to review the Nursing & Maternity Top with Wrap-Over Neck along with the Maternity Wrap Dress with Long Sleeves.
When I received the clothes, they were neatly folded and tucked into individual plastic bags. After wearing the clothes for a few outings, I am very impressed with how comfortable they were, while at the same time very stylish and figure flattering.
The wrap dress is more comfortable than my bathrobe and can easily be dressed up for work or an evening out with a jacket and a few accessories. Both items are slightly longer in the back to accommodate a baby bump for anyone that wants to start wearing them when they are pregnant.f stylish nursing wear.

Quality: I think these items have the nicest quality of any maternity and nursing clothing I have ever owned and as you know, I’ve reviewed quite a few brands. The soft and stretchy fabric washes well and isn’t finicky. Seriously, I can’t be bothered with hand washing and rack drying right now. There just isn’t enough time in my day!
Price: The Envie de Fraises maternity clothes line is phenomenal. For example, most of the items convert well from pregnancy to nursing wear. Also, most of the items make great transitional pieces while you are working on losing weight. Maternity clothing basics start out at $9.99 and I have never seen the equivalent of a Bella Band anywhere else for as low as $13! Envie de Fraises offers $10 off a purchase just for signing up to their newsletter. They also have a diverse sale and clearance section.
Style: The clothing is designed with a French style influence and it shows! All of the clothing seems to be quite practical. Everything in the collection can be dressed up or down based on your needs. I especially love that the clothes are specifically designed to fit you before and after pregnancy.
Fit: I am a curvy girl with a large chest. I am in the 10/12 size category with a 38DDD chest size. When I was perusing product photos online, I was skeptical of whether or not the clothing would look flattering on me. I am definitely not back to my pre-baby weight or stomach. Luckily, the items I tried on are forgiving and as you can see in the photos, both the dress and nursing top look lovely on me.
Sizing: Envie de Fraises carries items in sizes 4-14 with standard and long options for pant length. They carry maternity and nursing bras up to the H cup size.
Return Policy: Returns are free within 7 days of receiving your order.
Envie de Fraises carries a superb variety of maternity and nursing wear including sexy maternity lingerie and maternity swimwear. What I was most impressed by is the fact that the company offers seasonal boxes filled with essential items for a maternity wardrobe. For just over $100, you can get 5 basic pieces to start building your maternity wardrobe. Each box includes: t-shirt, bolero, pants, skirt and a bellyband. If you purchase each individually, and I promise that you will end up having to at some point during your pregnancy, you will pay more than $100. The same concept applies for the Envied de Fraises Nursing Home Wear Kits.
I am definitely impressed and will be shopping at this store next time I am pregnant!
