Stylish, transitional maternity wear

Clothing designer Rosie Pope with samples of her Rosie Pope Maternity line. You won't find the word maternity on the labels. The clothes are designed to be during and after a pregnancy.

New mom and business owner Rosie Pope recently brought a trunk show of her namesake line to Poole Shop at Phillips Place. Her line of luxe, stylish maternity wear is based on a premise so simple and common-sensical, you'll be kicking yourself for not thinking of it first.

When she took a look at her maternity wear options, she was aghast at the construction and choices. So she started her own business with the intent of making maternity more stylish and multi-purpose. Everything in the line is designed for use after you've given birth.

How is that possible? By using hidden adjustable waistbands, stretch silk and lots of knits. Dresses and gowns are designed in a way that after a child is born, panels can be removed without disrupting the silhouette. After you've given birth, you're left with a high-quality garment that will blend seamlessly into your existing pre-baby wardrobe, Pope says.

The line features ready-to-wear ($150-$400), salon ($600-$900) and couture options ($2,500-$5,500). Also available are diaper bags and clutches.

Rosie Pope Maternity has one retail store in New York's SoHo neighborhood. Pope, who gave birth to baby James a few months ago, says she hopes to open another store in the Southeast.

  1. There are clothes to suit all budgets and all sizes. There is amazing variety in petite maternity clothes too. They are designed for people who are 5'4" and below. Make sure you take into account the weather while purchasing your clothes. If you are shopping online be sure that the size you order is the right size, better yet shop from stores that accept returns just in case.
