Rumi Yoga wear launches their maternity line to encourage all soon to embrace the glow and look good while keeping fit. As Melissa Chu believes, “it’s important to emphasize staying active and healthy during pregnancy.” Here’s what the beautiful founder of Rumi has to say:
- What inspired you to add maternity clothes to your collection?
MC: I think it’s important to emphasize staying active and healthy during pregnancy. I wanted to offer moms-to-be fresh, new athletic apparel that’s versatile, stylish, and comfortable while they are in their pre-natal or post-natal phase. The most important things for moms is to feel good at all times during their pregnancy and that’s our main concern when we designed super soft stretchy pants.
- Do you have any tips for mom’s who are shopping for maternity clothes?
MC: When buying maternity clothes, it’s important to look for something that will last through several pregnancy stages, as well as future pregnancies! Look for high-quality clothes made with strong, stretchy material that will grow with you, stay snug, flattering and supportive as your body changes. Breathability, softness, durability and stretch are the things to look for in comfortable maternity clothes. Clothes made with spandex also offer the stretchiness, support and shape retention you need to accommodate your body as it changes.
- Where can these be purchased (only online or in your Singapore location as well)
MC: Currently, online only with worldwide shipping. We will be opening more locations in Singapore in the near future. 🙂
- Would you recommend any other stores to shop at for regular/casual maternity clothes?ᐧ
MC: We love mixing high/low brands. For casual clothes, we recommend buying loose fitting and stretchy clothes from h&m, as well as Motherworks which is a bit pricier but has some really nice brands. http://www.motherswork.com.sg/
