Nursing Tops – which colour floats your boat?

OK so if we are talking about breastfeeding tops as in T-shirts which colour shirt would you wear?

We are going to introduce some new colours into our range of breastfeeding T-shirts and basically want to know what you want.

We have had really great feedback about the nursing shirts we currently manufacture but we’ve had a few requests for different colours, but obviously not everyone likes the same colour and for us as a small company we can’t make every colour there is so have to be careful with what we choose.  I would really like to give red a go, but then there is the problem of which shade of red? I tell you ladies it’s a minefield!

SO if there is any particular nursing top you would like to see just let us know.

I’ve literally just come back from dropping our shirts off for screen printing so by Friday we good luck our KAT nursing Tee and our Owl nurisng top in dark grey should be back up to full force in all sizes. Also we should have a new graphic design shirt available too, how wicked it that 🙂

Bristol, Banksy & Breastfeeding Tees

Living in Bristol is really cool, and i personally think i am really lucky to have been brought up in such a lovely city. I have lived and Mama Feelsgood is based in North Bristol (technically if you want to be picky it’s South Gloucestershire) and it is really nice, not too far from the country side and i can be in Bristol city centre in 15mins when it’s clear (OK so Bristol has tons of traffic, can’t be all good!).

So i’ve been trying to sort out some issue with printing that i’ve been having, the printers that i currently use are really good, they’ve been running for like 30 years and know their stuff, but they don’t run close to Bristol and it’s becoming a pain on my part. I guess i want to have more control over what i print, and how many ,and i definately want to start getting more prints out there on a regular basis; change things up a little and be more fresh. So i have been looking for a new printers, now this might sound easy but i am super anal (i’m not being rude here!) and i don;t just get any old Jo to be involved with our nursing shirts, so i’ve been checking a few out. 1 printers for no good reason i just didn’t like them, had a gut feeling so i thought i would go with that and ruled them out; and i’m glad i did because Thursday i found a gem.

It’s been a rough week personally for me, my little baby Erin has been super sick, first with a bug (she wouldn’t stop vomiting & became dehydrated, had to take her to Dr’s and it was real sad to see her like that, very upsetting) and then right after, bang her 2 front teeth are coming through and she basically  is in agony. So many sleepless nights, and feeling like i have jet lag all the time. So anyways Thursday i had a meeting with the new printers, they sounded like nice people ; i was mega tired so managed to drive there without crashing which is pretty good for me (no babies in the car i must add). The place where they work is something else, and it;s amazing in a strange way. I’m really into family history and my nans side has been in Bristol for a long time and they were based in central Bristol and this place isn’t far from where they lived so it just kinda felt right. Actually my nans family were Tailors for generations so perhaps thats where i get it from!

So they are 2 of the nicest people i have met, so friendly, they know their stuff when it coms to printing and we are so on the same wavelength, i can go see the printing process which is something i’m getting really excited about ( i know that might sound strange to some but i love T-shirts, everything T-shirt realated i am into, so being able to watch my own shirts i have made be printed is mega for me). I could say exactly what i wanted and i felt really comfortable , it was like i was chatting to my brother (sadly my brother died, but if he was still here it’s like talking to him), it was the type of people you could eat you lunch with and not be paranoid!

SO this week we are running our first lot of new nursing shirts with them, our Owl breastfeeding T-shirts will be back in stock , our Kat long sleevedbreastfeeding  top will have all the sizes available again and there will be a new design too ! So watch this space ladies.

OOh the Banksy part of this blog is the printers had a real nice print on the wall and it was local Bristol artist Nick Walker, he is sorta like Banksy ie stencil art (he’s really good so don;t want to take anything away from him with comparisions to Banksy, he is fab in his own right) and these guys know him, and have printed for him which is cool because he is really quite popular now; then they drop the bomb and mention they have printed for Banksy. WOW.

Banksy is so iconic in Bristol (well maybe not everyone thinks so as they think of it as graffiti ) and these dudes know him…….. I think i must have gone a bit crazy looking and eyes nearly popped out, i did pump for information as to Banksy’s identity but they weren’t giving it up. But just through association i now feel special ha ha. Maybe if i hang around enough i will get to meet him…..

yeah i am sad ha ha

have a nice weekend, guys

What colour nursing shirts would you like to see?

As a small company it can kinda get quite frustrating that we can’t bring our as many variations and products as we would want. If i had my way there would be funky new breastfeeding designs flying into the store every month but in reality i can’t do this, basically due to costs.

I am so chuffed we have our new money penny breastfeeding dress and nursing tops they really are lovely clothes to breastfeed in and are made from really nice fabric etc, but the thing about being on-line is you can’t see the goods before you buy and this is a shame with our clothes as i do put a lot of emphasis onto using the better fabrics so they feel really good. So i am looking for other independent stores to stock our breastfeeding clothes but it’s so difficult finding them; the big chains really have swamped the market, here in Bristol there is 1 independent maternity & baby store and they only stock organic clothes (which our nursing clothes are not). We did have a lovely shop called Venus maternity in Clifton but that closed down approx a year and a half ago ( a bigger chain store moved not too far away ) so it;s such a shame.

Sorry getting off topic here!

SO we are working hard to extend our range of breastfeeding T-shirts and would like to add some more funky colours to them, in the running is red and green but which shades? I like pillar box red, Matt likes a darker shade, ladies of our facebook page have suggested cherry red which i think sounds nice but the thing is everyone likes different things! So if you have any preferences let us know below in the comments page.

Also if you have any rockin maternity stores near you which you think Mama Feelsgood would fit in then let us know 🙂

Have a great weekend, Liz

What’s your favourite colour for a nursing T-shirt?

SOOOO many colours to choose from so many different styles !

We are having a think about which colours would be the best to extend our  range of breastfeeding T-shirts with. So getting away from the darker colours which of course we will always carry ( they are SO flattering & having just had a baby 5ish months ago black is my friend at the moment!) what other colours do you guys like?

I love purple, and green is real nice too but everyone has such different taste it’s hard to appeal to everyone, so i was thinking the most popular colours we will seriously think about  getting produced. If you would like to leave feedback we would always love to hear from you on our Facebook page or of course leave a comment here.

We have some wicked new graphic  prints lined up, it’s really exciting but i can’t really show any of them to you until we have them for sale, but they should be here within the next 4 weeks so in time for christmas and if you want to buy one for a christmas present …hint hint ha ha.

Do dudes get busy with the facebook comments and let us know….. which colours you likey?

Our Breastfeeding Tops on sale going fast

OK dudes just a little running commentary on what stock we have got left in our sale nursing tops section.

Our Metropolis dark grey nursing top is going really fast, in medium there are literally like 3 shirts left so once they are gone they are gone, this style won’t be reprinted again .

As summer is edging away ( boo hoo) we are putting our pink nursing tops on sale although it;s alway cool to have a lovely colour shirt to pick you on those hideously cold winters mornings.

Newly added to our sale section is our Music Sounds Better With You long sleeve breastfeeding top it’s an absolute steal at £15.99 and will see you through the winter a treat. Again like our Metropolis nursing T-shirts once this print goes out of stock it won;t be re printed so if it floats your boat pick one up.

We are moving to our new premises too so in order not to log too much stock around we have put our short sleeve Rock Mama nursing top on sale (but only for a limited period only), this is one of our best selling nursing tops so won’t be at the super low price for much longer.

This breast feeding top is one of my favourites in our store, so i do feel quite attached to it !!! so this really will be a limited sale for this particular nursing top. We start moving into our new building friday so once this style top has been moved to its new home the sale will stop. sorry dudes!

As we add on take away different graphic prints nursing shirts from our sale section i’ll let you know here.

Nursing dresses – what kinda nursing dress / breastfeeding dress would you like?

Exciting times here at Mama FeelsGood we are extending our range of nursing clothing , so to go with our range of nursing T-shirts (both graphic nursing tops and plain nursing T-shirts) are are designing some nursing dresses and are looking for you input.

We have a pretty good idea od which direction we are going to head in and without giving too much away have 1 nursing dress pretty much designed, but as we always say we love to get feedback from our customers and want to know what you would want from a dress you can breast feed in. Would ladies like something more “dressy” ie something you could wear to work, out on a night and during the day or is a causal nursing dress more appropriate? 

Also length, on the knee, below the knee? Whats you fav?

There is soo many designs to choose from when thinking up new ideas for nursing clothing and lots of women say there is never anything nice in the breastfeeding clothing market that doesn’t obviously look like nursing wear so now ladies is your chance to create nursing clothing you would actually want to wear.

Breastfeeding Tops

Every pregnant woman / new mother should know about our maternity & Breastfeeding tops

WOW this is what 1 lady said at “The Little Monster Show” we attended on sunday, how cool is that. It was such a lovely thing to hear (hey we all love a bit of bigging up sometimes!!) she also said we shoould think about having a stall at the Baby show in Birmigham NEC or Excel in London.

It had defiantely given us something to think about, advertising can be really expansive as i’m sure you can guess, so ladies if you dig our tees let your friends know !! 🙂 Actually we are expecting the post man to bring at any time our copy of Vogue magazine that we are in. Thats 1 small perk of actually being featured in it you get to receive a copy the day before it goes on general release.

We’ll let you know what it looks like 🙂
