“ Brand: New Look / Type: Maternity Top „
This is a review of the Maternity Purple Butterfly Print Ruched Sleeve Top I bought from New Look recently. I was fed up of my limited wardrobe and had a couple of meals out and a potential day at the races beckoning so I thought I'd better buy myself something new!
I had a look online (the easiest way to shop for maternity clothes I find!) and immediately liked the butterfly top from New Look. I already had some leggings and black trousers and jeans for that matter that would all go with the top. I am not a fan of clingy clothing at the best of times so went in store to try on the butterfly top before making my mind up.
The top is made of 98% cotton and 2% elastane. It has a round neck and is nice and long in the body. I liked the ruched sleeves as I find long sleeves generally make me feel too hot but these were designed to be pushed up a bit on the arms which I prefer. The stretch in the material enables plenty of give and allows for your expanded tummy without pulling up the length too much. The top is available in sizes 8 - 18 and you just buy the size you would normally be pre pregnancy.
This top was priced very reasonably for £9.99 which was great and I also got a 10% NUS discount - even better! I don't like spending a lot of money on a top which technically will last me a couple of months but I really did want something new for my nights out and this was definitely affordable.
I love this top and will be wearing it as much as possible before and just after giving birth. Sometimes you just don't feel nice when you are pregnant as it feels like your body belongs to someone else and although people tell you that you're blooming it just feels like blooming huge to you!
