Envie de Fraises Maternity nightdress review

I'm sure most of us started watching new season of One Born Every Minute, I'm obsessed with it, but this time for a different reason. I watch it not just for the sake of knowing how the labour goes, what might happen, but also to have a rough idea about what to wear during my hospital stay and baby birth.
In my everyday life or every- night life to be precise (I don't know if it's acceptable or normal in wife's code) I wear a t-shirt with a jumper and trackies as I feel the need to be warm during my sleep rather than be all dressed up for my husband and being cold. Don't take me wrong, I do have fancy night outfits, but I just think when it comes to real life they are not very practical.

Anyway for my (for our) special moment- child birth I decided to look the best I can (pampered and dressed appropriately).

Lovely Enviede Fraises representative have sent me a Maternity nightdress (£34.49) to review, which I hopefully will be wearing during labour and after. 

Enviede Fraises founded by Anne-Laure Constanza in 2006, it is the French leading fashion brand for moms-to-be. The brand has been worn by hundreds of thousands of pregnant women since its launch. Envie de Fraises team of stylists and designers has poured its passion and talent into developing maternity clothing that meets the needs and expectations of future moms.

The nightdress itself  looks exactly like on a picture and definitely suits me. It is quite stretchy and I have a little bit of space to grow due to not so big bump, hopefully I will be able to wear (fit in) it in the next 3 months. It's not just a pretty nightdress it is useful as well as I can use it when breastfeeding our baby. 

As a recommendation I would suggest to expand the variety of sizes or maybe even to consider plus size option. I'm sure some mums would agree we would like not just to browse website, but also be able to order Envie de Fraises's lovely items.

DISCLAIMER: I was sent the above nightdress for the purposes of this review. All thoughts and opinion are my own. All pictures taken from Envie de Fraises website.


  1. Great review! I love the dress, wish I had that when I was pregnant both times. I really struggled because I was prego in the heat both summers. This would have been great.

  9. This looks beautiful, I really like the simple design, and it's great that it can be used for feeding too. Thanks for linking up with #TriedTested

  10. That looks like a perfect nightie for after your baby is born. Just a tip, I wouldn't wear it during labour, only your partner and midwifes will see you there so wear an old t-shirt or nightie you don't mind getting messy and save the lovely nightie for afterwards when you have visitors. #TriedTested
