There’s the initial honeymoon period of your pregnancy when everything you own still fits and all you sport is an adorable paunch. Of course, you’re mostly sick as a duck, but we’re not talking about that right now. As you go past the 4-month mark you start looking like you swallowed a beach ball and
suddenly everything in your cupboard has shrunk 5 sizes. This can give rise to all kinds of negative emotions – an absolute no-no when you’re pregnant and absolutely unnecessary when there’s Studio Mom in the city to bring back that sense of well-being.
Kusum Gupta started Studio Mom 10 years ago when maternity wear meant shopping in the men’s section for oversize kurtas. Despite an increase in maternity brands now, this little boutique has managed to hold its own thanks to great styling, comfort and affordability. If you’re looking for a few pieces to carry you through your pregnancy and beyond, Kusum can help you out. Her capris, trousers and jeans have adjustable elastic waists or narrow, wide or fold down bands to accommodate an ever-growing stomach and come in comfortable cottons and great styles. For casual wear there’s tights,
yoga pants in a delicious fabric that I was lusting after, and dungarees – the only time a grown woman can wear them and look cute is when pregnant! I also loved the denim pinafores and long dresses that make you look and feel very Earth-Mother-goddess like. So if you’re expecting, stroll on down to Studio Mom and you’ll be stylin’ the whole way through your pregnancy – in a totally non-crabby way.
Prices range from Rs.595 – Rs.1500.
