With just weeks (or it could be days) until my due date, I'm sorry I'm so late to the Lonzi&Bean maternity range party. But, it's unlikely I'll be back in my pre-pregnancy clothing after the birth, plus Lonzi&Bean dresses and tops are designed for breastfeeding too, the latter which is great news.
Lonzi&Bean is a local range, designed by two moms, Ilona (Lonzi) and Claire (Bean), who struggled to find maternity clothes that were practical, pretty and comfortable. While it was harder to find great ranges six'ish years ago when I was first pregnant, and while there's more variety these days, Lonzi&Bean adds a lot to the market with their flattering dresses, leggings, skirts and tops.
Their clothing is made of viscose and Lycra, which doesn't cling, shrink or fade, and there are "curvy" or plus sizes too, which is something I don't see in most maternity ranges.
You can order directly online, and delivery is R55 anywhere in South Africa. To keep up with any specials and happenings, you can follow them on Facebook. Lonzi&Bean will also be at the Rock-a-Baby fair on September 17 and 18, so you can visit them there and try their clothes.
And here's me in my dress…
