Rebecca Breighton: A growing baby bump means new clothes for mommy and fortunately it doesn't mean you have to sacrifice your personal style. Hi! I'm Rebecca Breighton and welcome to watchmojo.com and today we'll be seeing some maternity wear that can make you look good all through your pregnancy. Today we are speaking with Hayat from NeufMois. Now NeufMois in French of course means 9 months.
So, why would you say its important for woman to wear maternity clothes as opposed to wearing something loose and shapeless throughout their pregnancy, like their husband's clothes?
Hayat Cheikh: Woman wants to be pretty during their pregnancy, they feel like little bit tired and everything, but the clothes brings everything to them to make them look sexy and chic and beautiful.
Rebecca Breighton: When designing maternity clothes, do you use different fabrics than you would normally when designing something else?
Hayat Cheikh: I use stretch fabric, so it's really fluid and it's really easy to wear, even before during and after the pregnancy.
Rebecca Breighton: Are there any special pieces in the line that kind of accentuate the belly?
Hayat Cheikh: I have the Belly Bands. The belly bands are made to really show off the belly. So, you can wear it on the belly, you can wear it under the belly and with my dresses, you can wear them as skirts too. So, it's really a mix and match. I have strapless dresses, in different colors, the belly bands I have in different colors too.
Rebbecca: So, what is the inspiration for this line?
Hayat Cheikh: The beautiful body of the woman. I think it's beautiful and I think that we should show it. Especially during the pregnancy. It's a beautiful moment in the life of a woman.
