I’m not sure whose genius thinking it was to island hop right after my daughter turned a year old but I clearly didn’t think about the fact I would need a bathing suit for my new body. Bathing suit shopping is never fun but I unexpectedly found myself dreading the idea of going from store to store to shop for postpartum figure. Luckily, with the Upper West Side as my childhood stomping ground and our neighborhood at the time, I was familiar with all it had to offer and I popped into Town Shop.
I’d been there many times with my mother and just like I imagined they were able to help me find a bathing suit for my upcoming trip. The woman helping me took one look at me, picked out the size and off I went with a Calvin Klein tankini that was a perfect fit for the trip. And when I mean perfect, that suit gave me such confidence I was happily sailing on the catamaran without wearing a wrap!
The other day I stopped into the recently expanded space for Town Shop to check out their maternity and post partum section for my sister. One thing I remember from each of my four pregnancies is that my chest grew and my pre-pregnancy bras were useless. And after pregnancy, I switched sizes a few times before settling to my current size.
I chatted with owner, Danny Koch, about the new space and their bra and maternity wear selection for expectant and new moms. Town Shop has an impressive amount of choices of maternity and nursing bras starting at 32A. The variety of sizes, styles and brands make it easy for women — no matter their need — to find a bra they feel comfortable wearing. And I love hearing from Danny that when they size shoppers they give it a bit of space so they don’t have to shop for a new maternity bra shortly after purchasing one from them.
The new location also has a selection of maternity wear pieces that were not only flattering but also in keeping with what women wear now throughout their pregnancy. As someone who has been pregnant four times and had four very different maternity wardrobes, I can appreciate the styles and brands Town Shop offers to those currently expecting.
