My name is Gillian, owner of Mojo Maternity, a site thoroughly dedicated to providing flattering, comfortable and affordable maternity wear in sizes 18 to 30. That’s me in the photo pictured with my son Harrison and I would love to tell you a little bit about the background to Mojo Maternity and our story.
Mojo Maternity was set up in response to countless requests received at our sister site Tall Maternity Store where we have successfully nurtured our own line of maternity clothing for tall ladies under the brand Mummy Long Legz. We were regularly contacted by ladies with curves asking us to increase the range of sizes offered so we immediately got on the case and added more options to the tall site. We soon realised there was a gap in the maternity market and ladies who were size eighteen plus were feeling very let down by the high street. We decided to set up Mojo Maternity where we would use our experience of non standard sizing to offer a range of maternity wear specifically designed for ladies with curves.
I have firsthand experience of the stresses and strains experienced trying to find the perfect fit. In 2007 whilst expecting Harrison I suddenly encountered a problem. My bump was getting bigger, I was popping out of my clothes and I could literally find nothing to wear. I’m not particularly tall at 5ft 9” however I have a 36” inside leg. There was nothing long enough and after trawling the shops and internet I realised that my choices were limited to skirts, dresses or chilly ankles! It soon became clear that lots of ladies were in the same position and it seemed that retailers weren’t catering for pregnant ladies with height.
I decided that I would make it my mission to design a pair of maternity trousers that ticked all of the boxes. They had to be comfortable, flattering, reasonably priced and most importantly long! I spent hours researching fabrics, sizing, manufacturing processes and spent my pregnant months obsessing over my mission! We found a great manufacturer in sunny Manchester and we were set to go. I built myself a basic website and we were in business.
The feedback was great and all of a sudden we were receiving emails thanking us and praising us on the fit. Now bearing in mind we had one style of trousers this was all very encouraging. Things have come on a long way since then but our core values have remained the same. We are still dedicated to designing comfortable flattering styles that are reasonably priced and look great on the taller frame but now we have added Mojo to our family and our dedicated team is committed to achieving the perfect fit for ladies with curves!
We hope you love the collection and if you have any ideas for future additions to the range please get in touch. We love hearing from mum to be’s so whatever your question or even if you just fancy a chat drop us a line.
Thank you for visiting our site!
