Women’s Stretch Cotton Garments Now Include Maternity, Nursing, and Midcalf Styles
Contributed By Camille West, LDS.org Church News
The women’s stretch cotton garment line is being extended to include maternity styles, a nursing top, and a midcalf bottom, available immediately in the U.S. and Canada.
All four new garment products will replace the cotton-poly garment products currently available.
Stretch cotton, the popular breathable cotton–spandex fabric first introduced to the women’s line of garments in February of 2018, provides a soft cottony feel and a comfortable, close fit. Stretch polyester mesh panels on the sides and inner legs help to increase airflow and decrease drying time.
Maternity and nursing garments
The stretch cotton nursing and maternity garments—designed to be snug and more in line with modern clothing—provide a new and comfortable option for pregnant and nursing sisters.
The completely redesigned maternity chemise-style top features gathers down both sides and no underbust seams, allowing for an expanding belly without excess fabric. Two bust sizes are available.
The extra-wide stretch mesh front panel on the maternity bottom also accommodates growth.
For nursing mothers, the crossover top and signature stretch provide for easy access while the mesh side panels help keep the wearer cool and dry. Two bust sizes are available.
Updated midcalf garment bottom
The new redesigned midcalf bottom has an extra wide “yoga”-style waistband made of stretch mesh that sits at the natural waist. The leg cuffs are made of the same stretch mesh fabric as the inner-leg panels.
Midcalf bottoms provide extra warmth, cleaner lines beneath clothing, and full-body comfort and work especially well under maxi skirts, jeans, and leggings.
How to purchase
To purchase these new garment styles, visit a Distribution Services store or store.lds.org.
All stretch cotton options for women will be available in all areas by April 2019, except for Brazil, where they will be available later in the year.
