My story is a relatable one, finding I had nothing to wear after having my baby. I no longer had a cute bump to show off, my old clothes didn't fit or weren’t feeding friendly. I was shocked to find how difficult breastfeeding was, let alone finding suitable clothing I liked.
This is where the idea for Under the Pump was formed, I wanted to make breastfeeding easier for us mums and believed just because life has changed doesn’t mean our style had to.
That’s why Under The Pump collections are designed for the modern mum. Easy to wear, flattering for postpartum bodies and timeless designs. All openings are cleverly hidden so you can’t tell they are feeding outfits and couldn’t be spotted against regular clothing, meaning the outfits can be worn after our breastfeeding journey ends.
