Maggie Maternity — Review and Giveaway

So I’m pregnant and I know a guy, a guy (well gal) who works with Maggie Maternity and wanted to hook me up with some maternity clothes to review on my blog. The clothes looked gorgeous and more expensive than I’m used to paying for maternity clothes so I said, “Sure.” Besides, on their site they mentioned that Angelina Jolie was seen wearing their tank top at the Cannes Film Festival and I thought it would really do her self-esteem some good if she found out she was wearing the same clothes as me.

So they sent me their summer box and I was a bit skeptical because everything in it was black. However, I know black is slimming (which I need) and decided I’d try and wear it mostly in air-conditioned locations or on overcast days (which we have a lot of here).
I was pregnant with both of my other kids primarily during the winter and nearly everything I have is dark, thick and long-sleeved. When I wear it, I boil.

That is not the case with these clothes. Despite being black in color, they’re very lightweight and breathable. They really are perfect for summer. The fabric is a Spandex/Rayon blend and feels amazing next to my skin. These truly are the most comfortable clothes I have ever worn, maternity or otherwise, including pajamas.

maggie-maternity1I decided to do my serious testing of “the box” when I was running our PTA fundraiser. The event lasted for 4 days and I spent much of my time on my feet working with kids and walking around the school. For 3 days I wore at least one piece from the box and felt like I was walking around in my most comfy PJs. The best part was that I got compliments on everything I wore. Words like “elegant,” “classy,” and “why are you so dressed up?” were thrown at me.

I felt super cute when I wore them and again, you can’t beat the comfy. After my 4-day test was over, it had sort of become a tradition to wear them… every day. I wear at least one piece almost daily. I wear them to church, to the park, to dance recitals and just lounging around the house. When we leave for summer vacation, they’ll be the first things I’ll pack. I’ve washed them all several times and they are holding up great. The look of the fabric has changed slightly but they haven’t balled or pilled.
They are machine washable but should be laid flat to dry. I hang them on a drying rack. I love them. Honestly I’m a very cheap person and I look for bargains in maternity clothes because you wear them for such a short period of time, but if I get pregnant again and my size has changed, I plan on buying another set of these in my current size. Because they’re so versatile, you wear them so often that it makes them worth the price. The sizing is a bit generous. I was wearing a 14/16 when I got pregnant and I got the biggest size they make (4) which says it’s a 12/14 equivalent and if anything they’re a tad on the large size.

The pants are probably my favorite piece because of the way they’re designed. You can wear them folded over at the beginning of the pregnancy but then pull them up as you get bigger or to avoid showing a waistline under your shirt. They work well as take-your-kids-to-the-park pants or you can dress them up with a classy top and wear them to the ballet and no one knows that you secretly feel like you’re wearing nothing on the bottom. The skirt is a close second favorite. It looks great and is cooler for summer weather.
If you’re pregnant, plan to be, or know someone who is, you should check out the site. For now, leave me a comment on this post and I’ll enter you to win a $100 gift certificate to Maggie Maternity. I’ll chose a winner on Thursday at noon PST.

    Oooh, I love maternity clothes. I generally can’t wait to get pregnant just for the clothes. I always feel really feminine when I’m pregnant and wear lots of girly stuff I would never wear otherwise.

  6. Karen says:

    The clothes sound great! I love the fact that they feel like PJ’s 🙂 I’m due Sept. 12 and would love some comfy clothes.

  15. Jody M says:

    Pick me, pick me! Comfy to me means wearing my husband’s basketball shorts as I get bigger. Not leaving the house due to no cute maternity clothes doesn’t do much for my social life…butterfly that I am.

  16. Keri-Ann says:

    Wow, I really want to win those for next time… is it bad that I’m not pregnant and entering anyway? I promise I’ll share them with someone who actually needs them now if I win. 😀 (And if I don’t win, maybe you’ll be a super pal and let me borrow yours when I need them??? wink nudge?) 😀

  20. Carmen says:

    Hi! I recently found out that I am pregnant with number 3 – surprise! I don’t like to shop and especially don’t like to go maternity shopping. Tim practically has to drag me to the store. So, having a set of clothes to mix and match would be awesome. I just love the picture of you in the dress. You look cool and stylish!

  21. Jenna says:

    Yay! Hook me up! 🙂

    love your writing at!

  22. Katharine says:

    Pregnant with my third. I’m not due until jan 7, but you know how it is, by the time the third gets in there, your uterus is so stretched out you “pop” almost immediately. I’d love to win!

  23. Tay says:

    Oooo – those look fantastic! I hope I win – it would be so nice to have NICE maternity clothes!

  24. Pick Me! Pick Me! Pick Me!

    While I’m not currently pregnant, I’m back on Clomid for the 3rd attempt….2 failed pregnancies came before this round of meds. I’m really hoping that this time around is the charm, and I know that if it’s successful this time, the new clothes will make me feel even better!

    I’m a longtime reader of DYM, but generally don’t comment. I enjoy reading about your adventures as a mom and wife! I think you are so generous with your giveaways and other promotions…You Go Girl!

  25. mhuff says:

    Oh, I have a deep and abiding hope that I will one day need maternity clothes again. You look adorable.

  26. Ooh, these are nice. Maternity clothes have come a long way since my mom’s day, but there are still some out there that make me think that the manufacturer thinks that pregnant women are also blind. 🙂

  27. mommy says:

    Sign me up! These will come in handy soon!

  28. Tara Bramy says:

    These clothes (and “The Daring Young Mom” ‘s description and comments REALLY sold me!!!!) are so cute!! My daughter Chloe’ is in her 2nd trimester (2nd pregnancy); she has severe arthritis, and the comments of the comfort of this line sounded incredible~ any comfort allowed during pregnancy is a must!!~ and my daughter could use any comfort during this time. I’ve sent info on your website and the line on to others’ (to pass on to others, and so on) too. Thank you for your time, and good luck. Hope to hear from someone that I (for my daughter) won the gift. cert. hee hee Thank you for the info.!!

    We’re getting ready to try for #3 and considering how not cute most of my maternity clothes were the first (and second) time around, I’d love something new this time.

  32. Kristin Olson says:

    Well I have to reply as I love clothes:) Tee Hee I only have 5 or 6 weeks left for this pregnancy but worth trying ha?

  33. Kyla says:

  36. amy says:

    Wow! These Maggie Maternity clothes really do look amazing! My husband and I are ttc. Winning these gorgeous clothes would be a sign of the great things to come! 😉 These would be perfect for me to wear to work and they sound comfy enough to wear on the weekend. I also love the Maggie Bump Band in white. It would be the perfect fashion accessory to break up all of the black and add a really classy touch. Thanks for this great chance!
