Mama Got Dressed Today: Maternity Style from Le Tote

Charlotte, NC, USA
Finding just the right maternity clothes is kind of a pain. Le Tote has been the absolute best maternity style service that I have tried so far. And that includes ordering various outfits from tons of different stores as well. This post is not sponsored but I hope another mama-to-be sees this and is encouraged to try it out because the first time I felt put together in my pregnancy so far was when I was wearing my Le Tote pieces. My full experience plus a $25 off link is below!

My Experience with Maternity Clothes + Le Tote

This was one of the first times in weeks (months?) that I wore actual pants that were both comfortable and made me feel good! Yep, pants other than my super lose sweats or pj pants. I had this outfit on for probably a few hours and these days, that's saying something.

Le Tote was recommended to me by my sister-in-law and it has been my favorite pregnancy indulgence. I love that I get a big selection of items sorted according to my style and then can heart my favorites. So far I love what I've received in terms of quality and matching my personal style. I feel SO good knowing I can slip into something comfortable and stylish when I do want to go out.

The Kimi and Kai top is 100000% wonderful in every way! I love it for pregnancy and postpartum. Not only is it flattering but the fabric feels luxurious and soft on my belly. The one thing I have learned about maternity clothes is that they are not all made equally. It is easy to look at anything stretchy and think it is good enough but having thoughtful design for a changing body makes a world of difference. 

To explain...the top has a layer that fits snug right on my belly, then the outer flowy layer on top. The top portion has hidden zippers on each side that make it nursing friendly. I love the color and the weight of the fabric. It is a solid investment. The prices for your items vary but I find them to be competitive with Nordstrom Rack prices if not even cheaper in many cases.

For the box overall, I kept the top, a dress, and necklace. I sent back the other dress because the cut wasn't my favorite and the purse because I did not need it, BUT I wore and used both over 2 weeks time which was fun.

PS: The pants I have on I ordered separately from Le Tote. They are by Motherhood Maternity and just a tad long for me (I'm 5'1) but not too bad. After trying quite a few stores, the Motherhood Maternity brand won me over (downside: they are lay flat to dry only). 

How to Le Tote Works

Sign up Once you sign up for Le Tote and create your style profile you browse items chosen for your style and heart whatever you love- they remain in your Closet. 

Get Styled When it comes time for your tote, a stylist puts together a selection of items which varies depending on the Tote you chose. I went with 3 clothing items and 2 accessories (purses, jewelry, scarves). 

Finalize Your Styles Most importantly, before it is finalized and mailed, you get to decide if you want to swap anything or everything. This has been great for adding pieces I need or want for certain occasions that pop up or my whatever my mood is at the time. 

Your Tote You receive your tote, keep what you want, and send back the rest in the pre-paid shipping bag. And if you purchase your whole tote, you get your next month's tote free! Not even kidding, for my second tote I'm buying it ALL. Email, comment, or message me if you have any other questions.
