Bump Clothing Review
I was asked to review four items from the current Sporty Bump collection
and was only too happy to help!
Just so you
know, I am 20 weeks pregnant with twins, about 5’8 tall and am usually a
size 14 when not carrying around an instant family! All the items I
tried were size ‘Large’.
impression of the maternity sportswear was really good. They felt lovely
and soft to the touch and had a quality feel about them which gave me
great confidence that they would actually be suitable for what they are
I received two
tops and two bottoms and wasted no time in trying them out.
Back Top - £20
This was my favourite out of the two and is the one I am wearing in the
photo. It was really comfortable to wear, nice and stretchy and the
inner support bra meant I didn’t need to have my maternity bra on. A
real bonus! It fitted me relatively well but my only concern is that it
may not fit me for much longer. I realise that I am much bigger at this
stage than someone carrying a singleton but this should still be
considered before buying. It was very comfortable across my bump, not at
all tight and I felt really stylish wearing it. Much nicer than wearing
an extra large t-shirt which makes me look like a very big sack of
potatoes! For me personally I would have preferred it to have been
slightly longer at the front so it didn’t gape at the bottom quite so
much but that’s just me. I would be more than happy to wear it down the
gym or as a casual top over leggings or jeans.
Cross-Over Top - £20
This top is also great with all the same features are the Racer Back
such as the inner support bra etc. It’s probably slightly more versatile
than the other one as it has a nice V neck line and could be dressed up
quite easily. Personally I wasn’t so keen on the V neck as even though
my boobs have grown considerably from what they were they are still not
that big and I felt like I needed a bigger bust to do the top justice!
the Bump Capris - £16
These are lovely, really comfortable, soft and stretchy. They come to
just below the knee and being black are nice and slimming on the legs.
They are designed to be worn under the bump and the waist is very soft.
Personally I would have liked them to have been over the bump but that’s
just my preference. When teamed with either of the tops the whole outfit
looks really good and is perfect for trying to stay fit whilst pregnant
and for getting your shape back afterwards. I also think that these
capris are good value as they could easily be worn with everyday tops
and look great!
Bump Shorts - £15
These shorts are just as comfortable as the capris but they are designed
to be worn on the bump. They are extremely soft and stretchy and I was
quite happy to wear them across the middle of my bump without feeling
uncomfortable. I would say that they look more like gym / sportswear
then the capris and so would not really wear them as an everyday item.
The fact that they stop just above the knee means I wouldn’t wear them
personally (I hate my knees!) but that shouldn’t put anyone else off
from buying them.
opinion of the Sporty Bump range was really good. It was good quality,
soft, very comfortable and looked very stylish which can be quite hard
to achieve with an ever expanding bump! For me I would just have liked
the tops to be a little longer at the front.
