Competition winner reviews her prize!


Tester: Barb – 36 years old and 29 weeks pregnant with baby no. 2. Mum to 3 year old Endyn. Pre-pregnancy a size 8.

Products: Nearly Nude Skinny Strap Tank (in Black) and Nearly Nude Round Neck Tank (in white). Available from Ma Mere.


I had never considered wearing support garments through my first pregnancy because I didn’t think they were necessary, however, after winning two such products in a Bump Wear Project competition, I can confidently say that they make caring a bump around a lot more comfortable.

I absolutely LOVE the Nearly Nude Skinny Strap Tank. It is so supportive of both my bump and my breasts. It has been great for wearing under summer dresses and shirts and with this heat I have even occasionally worn it as a top. My only criticism of the product is that it would have been good to have some padding in the breast area to conceal nipples however, this didn’t bother me too much.

The Nearly Nude Round Neck Tank has also been great. I’ve been wearing it to bed and my bump has felt totally supported as I’ve tossed and turned to get comfortable. Unlike the Skinny Strap Tank which lifted my breasts because of its design, I found the Round Neck Tank to flatten my breasts (i.e. no jiggle possible) which may be of benefit to larger breasted woman. However, for a gal who is embracing her pregnancy curves, the cup design on this garment was not as flattering for my body and therefore I only ever wore it to bed.

I can also tell that post-delivery these garments will be great for flattening the tummy.

Rating: Two big thumbs up, especially given that the garments can be worn during and post pregnancy.
