Introducing Petite Maman

I have been contacted by the lovey Ash from Petite Maman to share a guest blog with regards to her innovative idea for smaller nursing bra's.  Now as I've previously blogged (and whinged!) about, I am not blessed in the boob department and shopping for bra's is probably my least favourite thing to do.  Throw in hormones and tender pre and post birth breasts, and you get one very un-happy me!  I struggled so much with nursing bra's, I know it was wrong, but I stayed in my under wired padded bra's until after birth when my milk came in and then reluctantly purchased ill-fitting nursing bra's from the High Street.  I couldn't agree more with Ash's statement below "I think all mums deserve the chance to feel great about themselves and what they’re wearing, especially when they have a new baby to look after" this is what I am all about (taking it a stage further though, all people in general for my business!).  Even though I knew I was doing an amazing job feeding my children myself, I felt compromised in how I was feeling about the bra I was using to do so.  I think that as Mum's do such an important job bringing up our babies, we need to feel like 'ourselves' as much as we can.  So I am very pleased to share with you Ash's post on her new business venture.  Please read the below from Ash and spread the word Mummy's, this is a great product if you are small in the breast department.

I have always struggled to find bras to fit my 34AA boobs, and when I became pregnant last year I knew that it would be a mission trying to find nursing bras. With people constantly telling me that your boobs go up at last 2 cup sizes when you have a baby I was hopeful but not entirely surprised when I barely grew into an A cup by the end of my pregnancy!
By that point I had spent a lot of time online, trying to research suppliers that make smaller sized nursing bras and found a fantastic manufacturer that would offer me samples on a wholesale basis. That’s when the idea for Petite Maman started to take shape. I became even more determined that I had a right to feel comfortable and beautiful in a bra that fitted well while embarking on the journey of breastfeeding for the first time. The only A cup bras on offer from other retailers left a lot to be desired with shapeless cups and stretchy white fabric. I received my first sample bra by airmail from a specialist international manufacturer just days before my due date! Finally, I had found nursing lingerie that was great quality, beautiful and most importantly suited my figure. Road testing began when my baby boy arrived and I was so impressed with the bras that I wanted to make them available to other petite mums!
In my experience, when it comes to breastfeeding there can be enough obstacles to overcome without having an ill-fitting, ghastly nursing bra to contend with as well. I think all mums deserve the chance to feel great about themselves and what they’re wearing, especially when they have a new baby to look after.
So without further ado, I am pleased to offer these A and B cup bras to help you become the 'Yummy Mummy' you were born to be!
