Q&A with Dorothy - the Designer of Dote Nursingwear

Posted on 1/05/2014 in Style

How did Dote begin?

Dote was started in 2008 after the birth of my first child. Nursing wear available at the time was limited (more tops; it was hard to find dresses) and also looked pretty unfashionable compared to my pre-pregnancy clothes. I couldn't stand the thought of having to look dowdy for a year so I decided to create a line that would allow me to nurse easily as well as look and feel good in!

What is your top styling tip for pregnant ladies?

(I'll offer two!)
A woman's proportions change during pregnancy so you need to reassess/relearn how dress your new body shape. Certain styles that looked good before may not look good now. Buy a few pieces of clothes at a time throughout each stage of pregnancy rather than all at one time to ensure that you always have clothes that fit well.  Invest in a good bra and maternity shape wear like Mama Spanx. These smooth out any bumps and lines and will give you confidence a boost!

What is your style philosophy?

Clothes should be timeless and effortless - and should flatter the wearer. It's pointless to wear something that doesn't make you look good just because it's the latest "in" thing.
Design wise, I am constantly challenging myself to create clothes that are easy to wear; and make women feel beautiful and put together.

What's next for the brand?

We are excited to work with different fabrics and beautiful prints! Look out for us in 2014!
