Breastfeeding Tops

November madness all nursing tops under £20

nursing topshttp://www.mamafeelsgood.com

Our new colour nursing tops are here,my favourite is the lovely rich looking burgundy colour one (especially our mothership print looks amazing on it ) ; I’ve made the rest of november a special month as all our nursing tops are under £20.

I totally understand the need for reasonable priced nursing wear, i am a mum, i’m not rich, i totally get you ! I hand print each top, it’s a very hands on company, i love doing this but one thing that gets to me and i promise i try my absolute best to provide my nursing tops are THE best price. I have the shirts manufactured in small batches so this reflects in the price i pay for them (high !) , all shirts are made in Europe so you know no slave labour marlarky has been involved, and you can be confident the shirt on your back has been made with respect and care.

The more we sell the cheaper than can be, so tell your friends, spread the word !

TImes are a changing

You know when you are picking wallpaper and you’ve got a really good idea of what you want , you know what your style is and you’re really pumped about going out and shopping for your paper ; you get to the store and then settle for one for one thats just ok but not REALLY you? Are you like that or do you keep on until your find what’s really you? Even if it might never be out there?

Well as Mama FeelsGood grows i’ve always felt in a few areas  to quote the words of U2 “i still haven’t found what i’m looking for” , things are cool but just not quite clicking with what i really want. We produce really really great nursing tops which i am so proud of but in this industry it’s not enough to produce a really really great product you have to get out there and shout about it , and i admit that’s something i’m not the best at. I suppose it’s the laid back part of my personality , i think “man our nursing shirts are cool people will find us! ” but i’m learning fast there’s nothing wrong with a bit of self promotion if you know what you do is awesome .

Well i’m getting ready to shout, and over the next few weeks quite a few things will be changing ; Things have clicked for us, we’ve found our mojo and things are looking freakin fantastic. It’s so much like having a baby, when you finally meet your little bundle you step back and look & think to yourself WOW we made that ; Well thats how i am feeling about Mama FeelsGood and our clothes, wow i made this and i am so happy with how it’s grown and evolved.

I am SO excited about the future, i genuinely look on all of our customers as if you were our friends – i had a 30 minute conversation about maternity knickers the other day with one of customers !! ha ha, good comfy ones are hard to find!

I can’t say too much right now as to what specifically is going down as  we are still tweeking the details but believe me things are looking good and i think you’re going to love it x

Hand printed baby clothes with matching nursing tops

 

We’ve had so many emails about extending our range of nursing tops into children’s wear we thought we would go ahead a test the waters and we’ve created our first batch of babygrows ; they are so seriously cute, i forgot how tiny newborn babies are and the weeny 0-3 months baby grows are so sweet i thought i could hear my ovaries crying out …Liz have another one (1 have 2 lovely children and it’s going to stay at that but wow these baby clothes are cute ha ha!)

Here is our Birdy Baby grow (available in a range is sizes from newborn up to 18 months)

 

 

Here is the matching Birdy nursing top to go with the baby grow.

Both the nursing top and the baby grow are hand printed right here in Bristol and are made from super soft cotton so both you and your baby can be snuggly together.

We have 4 different prints for our babygrows, and each of them has a matching nursing top.

Our Monster Stan (the green baby grow) is so cute and it matches the Monster Stan nursing tops so well

We also have the unicorn nursing tee & it’s matching hand printed baby grow

Unicorn nursing top

We have had a great reception to our initial batch of baby clothes so we are for sure looking to extend our baby range into long sleeve baby grows and baby tee’s etc.

It’s so exciting seeing our designs coming to life on baby clothes, i kept both my daughters first baby clothes (just the special pieces that brought back lots of memories) and it would be so cool to think that someone might keep these baby grows as special memories for them too. We think these particular designs work really well on childrens clothes & adults.

Again we are always open to ideas so if there is a design we currently print on breastfeeding tops that you would like seen on baby clothes just let us know x

How we print our breastfeeding Tees

The majority of our nursing tops are printed here in Bristol; we are really proud of the fact that we take a lot of care and time and love in the nursing clothes we produce . It’s really cool to keep things local & we have the best printers ever ! No seriously Paul & Ben who print our shirts are so lovely & they can kick ass in the screen printing world Ka-Boooom.

SO what goes on when you order one of our super fabulous nursing shirts?

Lets take our Funky Tattoo Owl Breastfeeding Tee

First up we need a screen to put our image of this funky owl onto, this screen will be used put the ink on and then print onto our nursing shirts

Whoop whoop

So next we need to get this beautiful bird onto the nursing shirt:

SO Paul our very kind & brilliant printer puts the ink (nice and safe non of this yucky ink) onto the screen at the top, THEN….

The screen gets pulled down onto the nursing shirt and the ink is pulled across the screen and hence onto the nursing shirt. Because the owl graphic has been specially placed onto the screen only the image of the owl comes through.

The shirt then has to be put through a special dryer for the print to fix.

After the printing is done we hand tag, fold and pack your nursing shirt (normally while listening to a bit of Dave Grohl getting his Foo Fighters groove on) .

So each one of our printed nursing shirts are individual and produced with care. We love doing what we do, and we do it for you (thats a song isn’t it? ).

Every different graphic nursing tee has it’s own screen, and we do this for every shirt so you can imagine it takes a lot of time, with all the printing & folding etc; so hopefully you can see what goes into making our nursing tees and kinda see why they are extra special.

Without you guys buying our nursing shirts i wouldn’t be able to get my printing fix on, it’s SO satisfying making a great product & knowing you are making a persons day just that teeney weeney bit better (hope we are) . I really honestly appreciate all of you – go on give yourself a hug x

I am a huge T-Shirt and printing geek so apologies if you haven’t found this blog post as interesting as i have !

Our Halloween Nursing Top sale starts TODAY

 

WOOOOAAHHHH – our spooky Halloween sale starts TODAY

It’s only on for the next 3 days (until HAlloween is over) so make the most of it; You can even grab some of our new nursing tops for the super special price of £22.99 which is CRAZY !!

Our pretty Maggie Nursing Tee is in the sale , it’s a new design breastfeeding tee too so quite unusual to fins it reduced – i was guessing because it’s Halloween i would reduce some of the red breastfeeding tops as it’s blood coloured ! OK weird kinda logic behind that but hey thats how i roll !!!

Our High 5 nursing top is a classic and looks cool whatever the time of year – Yeah High 5 all you ghosties !

ok so we thought we’d have a break from the red and bring some love back in the room ! Our One Love breastfeeding top is really pretty , with a great message.

SO do you love halloween ? I really like it, brings back loads of really cool memories of trick or treating with my sister ; we didn’t do it for all the sweets and money we got (we did get quite a lot i can remember) but we just loved the dressing up. It was never really done very professionally, back then (i’m talking 1980’s) you couldn’t get the costumes found in the big supermarkets you can now ; so it was dyeing things in the sink and loads of cheap make-up , it was WICKED !

Any whooooo enjoy the sale – have a safe halloween

How we hang – Our Autumn collection of breastfeeding tops

It’s been so much fun creating our new range of nursing tops for the Autumn line ; i genuinely love all these new breastfeeding T-Shirts and if i had to pick 1 which was my favourite i’d say it changes from day to day.

Our Maggie 3/4 length sleeve nursing top is one of new designs ; it was such a laugh doing the photoshoot with Nat our Model and Laura our photographer that i bodged up the shirts and ended up taking a picture of our mid length nursing top rather than the 3/4 length sleeve one ! Not too much bother as we can actually sell both nursing tops but i was like “man i am SO dumb sometimes”

This picture here shows our mid length sleeve Maggie breastfeeding top. The darker red print works really well on our pink red tee.

If you are remotely interested in the printing process for our nursing shirts to the left of Nat in this picture is all the screen used to print our shirts. I’m going to do a blog post on how we hand screen them all (which i am super proud of , but i am a T-Shirt geek so be warned the blog post will be a bit on the geek side ha ha).

We wanted to keep things real in the pictures, this is where we work in Bristol  with all the equipment needed to produce our tee’s (thanks to Ben & Paul for letting us shoot our shirts here) , we are really proud of the nursing tops we produce and we just wanted to share with you what we are about. I find being an indie retailer has it’s real benefits, we can offer something that bit different from the masses ( i’m not saying this because i am biased but i find the big retailers really boring sometimes especially with breastfeeding clothes) , choice is always a good thing and offering women more breastfeeding friendly clothes is cool. We truly care about our customers and when i see on instagram pictures of mums breastfeeding in our nursing tops i get really chuffed (don’t worry i’m not a stalker) .

I would love a big retailer to approach us and say “you know what your nursing tops totally rock” but i guess in this day and age you have to go out and grab them. I just want to bring a little something different in the maternity market to more women who i think might like them. SO ladies if you like our nursing tops don;t forget to tell your friends ! Spread the word and we can start our mission of making breastfeeding funky .

You can find our new range of breastfeeding T-Shirts here

New Autumn Nursing Top collection

I am so pleased to be able to show you our new graphic nursing tee collection ; it has taken much longer than i had wanted but working as a team with some of THE most awesome people i think we’ve produced our best line yet.

This is our Unicorn nursing tee, we did it in our last collection but on a different nursing top and with different colour inks ; so putting it on our slate grey breastfeeding top really works. Nat our fabulous model shows how the nursing shirt can be worn higher or as shown in the pictures below it can be pulled out a little more and wore longer – cool for wearing with jeans or leggings .

We hand screen print the majority of our breastfeeding T-Shirts here in Bristol, it’s so cool because Paul & Ben who print our shirts are super passionate about screen printing , they have so much knowledge and if you are a T-Shirt and printing geek like me they teach me tons . Screen printing is a real art and employing people like Paul & Ben who are real artisans helps keep the craft going and supports small business here in Bristol . When you work with people who want to produce the best and have the same work ethic as you it totally rocks and you know your customers will be getting the best product ever 🙂

Our Monster Stan breastfeeding tee is also hand printed here in Bristol too. It is SO cute, there is a little baby monster stan poking around the corner, plus we can introduce our new colour nursing top….GREEN – yeah we now do green woo hoo !

It’s SO difficult when choosing a new colour as you try to get advice and everyone likes a different colour or shade – it’s like dudes we only can get 1 new one not 15 ! Shame as i would love to add 15 new shades into our nursing top collection but we are only small !

Nat (our model) is so funny, it made our photoshoot an absolute hoot . I have some crackers of her (photo wise) but don;t think she would like me to show you ha ha !

We’ve introduced 6 new prints (i think it’s 6 ! ) and each of them i honestly love ; i’ve put so much into this collection that it’s so rewarding to see all the breastfeeding T-Shirts have worked out really awesome . I really love making our nursing tops and it never gets old selling them or seeing people wear them – high 5 ladies x

Check us out We won GOLD in practical parenting awards for best breastfeeding top

Gold baby ! Yeah cue Spandau Ballet “always believe in your goal” …………

Not too sure of that is the right words to this song but you get my drift. WOWZERS we are SO chuffed, i honestly had a tear in my eye when i read the email telling us ” Congratulations you’ve won a practical parenting award” … i don’t think i’ve ever scrolled down so fast on my iphone before ! And then there is was GOLD !!

It’s such a nice feeling to know you have worked so hard and that people like what you do.

We won for our Money Penny nursing Top, we were up against some big brands so we thought we would never win ( hey we aren’t putting our nursing tops down , they totally rock it but when you are a small independent company up against a multi million one it’s a bit crazy ! ) so it’s not all about how big you are as a company but how good your products are and we really thank practical parenting for this. It;s such a well respected award that it really does mean the world to us ; anytime in the future you want to tell us to shut up about winning this please do ! In 10 years we will still be banging on about it !

We’ve always made sure our nursing tops are made from really good quality fabrics whist providing easy access to breastfeed from without looking too obvious. we’re not really into the T-shirts with a a line across the middle which pulls up as it looks really obvious. Our money penny nursing top is cool because it;s designed in a way that the empire line should be there anyway so it doesn’t look out of place, so building the nursing opening into it works really well.

SO it;s just really cool to know if you do work hard you can achieve great things. We really love making our breastfeeding tops, it never gets old and there are challenges everyday along the way but it’s all good. To know we make quality products and reasonable prices that look good and make you feel good when you breastfeed and beyond is so cool.

ooh the postman is here – i;m off to tell him about our gold ! ha ha

High 5 nursing top – special chance buy

I was thinking what to do with One of our High 5 nursing tops which is faulty, it’s a great top but sadly our printers got a little over enthausiastic with the red screen printing paint and it somehow ended up on the back of the shirt ! Total pain in the butt ! But i was thinking my loss your gain , we wouldn’t sell it on our site so i was thinking if anyone wants to cover the price of postage (which is £2.99 in the UK and depending upon country up to max of £6) then the shirt can be yours – we are nice like that 🙂

It’s a medium so UK 12  .

We only have 1 of these so if lots of you want it we will pick a name at random and that person can have first dibs at it.

Here are some pictures of the shirt and the pain on the back:

Is you click on the high 5 nursing shirt above it will take you to our website with the description of how this breastfeeding top works

Here is a picture of the red mark which is on the back of the shirt

here it is in the sunlight.

The mark is on the back of the shirt, it’s not small i would say about 4 inches ish (i am not very good with measurements ha ha no rude jokes please!).

It kinda looks like someone has rubbed something into the shirt but i promise it it paint and nothing else, the shirt has never been worn.

so ladies if you would like it leave a comment below this blog and you’ve got until after the jubilee so next wednesday and i’ll let you know who;s name is picked.

If you live outside the UK it’s fine to enter but you’ve got to pay postage and there maybe import duty depending upon your countries laws etc.
