Pretty Pushers Review & Giveaway 2/28

Our labor gowns are one-size-fits-most, composed of 100% cotton stretch jersey. The slip-on halter neck and diagonal cut garment is not only flattering but makes sense…there are openings which provide access for fetal monitors, the epidural, and other IVs if needed.

If you’re going to bring your own gown, be prepared to throw it away! The hospital staff won’t wash it for you, and what else will you do with a soiled gown…save it in a bag for 36 hours and take it home to wash? Not a chance! As a matter of fact, we feel that it is better for the environment to throw a bit of cotton into the ground than to add to the millions of gallons of hot water and harsh chemicals used on hospital laundry every day. This is exactly why our gowns are made with no trim, unfinished edges, and the fewest seams possible…to aid in the disposability factor.

I received the gown pictured above, in black, for this review.

I will start off by saying that this particular gown comes in three colors black, pink, or white. They also offer three prints and an organic, natural, unbleached gown.

I was intrigued with these gowns because I always assumed that hospital gowns were the ONLY way to go and it was as simple as that. After all, theyre provided for you at the hospital, so the convience factor is obviously there.

Pretty Pushers whole intention is for you to wear their gowns, be cute, enjoy yourself in the moment of bringing life in to this world, as well as being COMFORTABLE.

I love that this gown has the low cut back which is ideal for epidurals. With my first two pregnancies I did have an epidural each time and you have to have your gown completely open with your bottom hanging out so they have access to your whole spine, and the gown is great at keeping you covered but also allowing them to do their job. I am happy to say that since I had a natural birth this time, I had no need to test out the low cut back but I'm confident that if I did have an epidural there would've been no issues.

The front allows for the heart monitors and contraction monitors to go, but again, keeping you covered at the same time. All hospitals are huge on monitoring everything so while you are in labor, you can have the luxury of keeping yourself covered while you have visitors, but the hospital gets their way of making sure everything is being tracked on the screen.

This gown is very light weight and breezy feeling. I like how light it is because you can change so quickly during labor with being hot, cold, moving positions, rolling from one side to another, and this gown allows you to be covered while feeling like you're wearing nothing at all (in my opinion)

Pretty Pushers Gowns come in two sizes One Size (2-16) and then Plus Size.
One Size retails for $24 while the Plus Size is $28.
The three prints come in One Size for $28.
Organic gown retails for $44 and is a One Size.

There is a convient "Store Locator" tab on their website so you can see where they're sold, some even in stores, or where you can buy online.

Wow, this is such a great idea.. I've never heard of anything like it.
After three miscarriages in the past 18 months we are waiting until after our wedding next year to start trying again but you can never be too prepared.. I'm slowly stocking up on items for future bubs but haven't put much aside for me. This is great!!
