Why? Who knows! Maybe I like the idea of being pregnant, just not all that goes along with it, like weight gain, swelling, birth itself, and the whole thing of having another mouth to feed! Really though, I love maternity fashion probably just as much as non maternity fashion. I don't know what it is about it, but I always find myself gravitating towards it, just to see what there is!
Because of all of my weirdness when it comes to maternity clothes, I was super excited when Fourth Love contacted me, and even more excited once I got to know a little bit more about the business itself!
Besides how stylish their clothing is, there are two HUGE things that I absolutely love about them. First of all, all of their products are made right here in the USA. Domestic growth is huge for our economy, and being able to provide as many jobs as possible is something they should be proud of.
They also donate 10% of their profits to various organizations that focus on expectant mothers and children. Shopping with a purpose? Yes, please!
The founder, Susan, focuses on the quality and the versatility of her pieces. Let's face it, our bodies are no where near the same after having children- her clothing is made to transition with you throughout your pregnancy, and even afterwards. Take a look at how the Polka Dot Blouse and the Two in One Tunic Dress easily transition!
Since I am not actually pregnant, I enlisted one of my best friends from college to wear and style this tunic (which can be worn two ways-a scoop neck tunic, or turn it around to wear the pleats in the front!). She looks so adorable, almost to the point where it makes me miss having a baby bump. Almost. I love how she styled it with the pleats in the back and paired it with a belt (belts and baby bumps just melt my heart!), thick tights and boots! (Anyone and everyone who talks to Erin, or heck, even comments on this post...please tell her how important it is that she let me know her baby name choices. It's bad enough I have to wait to find out if its a boy or girl! Please and thank you!!!)
My two favorite pieces out of the whole collection is the leather dress and leather sleeve shirt. Pregnant or not, they are just gorgeous!
Check out Fourth Love- you will love what they have, especially knowing you are helping an expectant mother and children, plus you will definitely get your money's worth out of your purchases, because you can wear them during and after your pregnancy!
