This mother's day we were absolutely delighted to have Kristen test-run our clothes for her second pregnancy! At As Intended, we designed our clothes for movement and comfort as well as coping with bodily changes from working out for the active career woman. What we did not expect was how well we would do through different life stages of the woman as well!
When we noticed how well Kristen still wore -ai. through her pregnancy, we asked her if she could test-run all of our clothes, and she agreed! We were blown away by how the stretchiness and recovery of the fabric allowed for our clothes to adapt with Kristen's changing body through the different stages of her pregnancy right up to 28 weeks. So we are now proud to say that we are maternity-approved!
Here's the honest scoop from Kristen who wore her usual sizing of UK 10 before pregnancy, and UK 10 through her pregnancy. Our favourite takeaways were that our four-way stretch stretches and recovers like a dream, there are endless possibilities with the mix-and-match options. And if you think about it, wearing -ai. will contributing to less waste - clothes you buy pre-pregnancy will serve you up till post-pregnancy.
As of 29 April 2022, Kristen was 28 weeks pregnant with a belly measure of 94.5cm in circumference. She picked out pieces from the collection in her usual sizing of UK 10, and tested to see if they were both comfortable for her changing body.
