Remember the pre-kid days? When you could leisurely stroll through trendy shops (the ones with the adorable, tiny knick-knacks that are only placed at lower levels to stress moms out) and buy clothes you loved and couldn’t wait to wear? Clothes that, from the moment you put them on, gave you a little boost of confidence so you could take on the day like a boss?
Those also happened to be the days where you could make less-than-practical purchases, because your clothes didn’t have to pass a test: Can I throw this in the wash? Is it ultra comfortable? Can I haul grocery bags in this? Will it hide stains? Where will I actually wear this? Can I feed my baby in it? Does it have pockets?
Now, as moms, not only do we have to have higher standards for our clothes, we also have to ask them to do a lot more than carry us through an evening of live music and dancing. So, why is it that the moment we begin the search for maternity wear, we’re entering an unfamiliar territory with a surplus of beige nursing bras and babydoll fitted dresses? Where were the things we wanted to wear before pregnancy? We clearly didn’t get the memo that becoming a mom meant you needed to pack up your sense of style and store it in a place to revisit only for a short trip down memory lane.
That confident vibe you get when you’re feeling incredible in your own skin? It’s real and it shouldn’t have to disappear just because you’ve entered a new phase of life. We have experienced this too, and we get it…the struggle is real. This is why we created nursing bras designed to move with us throughout our day that we… (amazing concept here) actually wanted to wear!
AVYN nursing bras were created by two local Portland Moms for the modern woman, who wakes up each morning with a to-do list longer than the Columbia River and doesn’t have the time (nor the energy) for multiple wardrobe changes throughout the day. We bridged the gap between fashion and function and developed a nursing bra that will move with you from barre to brunch.
