Quick Q...

  • How do maternity sizes work?

    At Pea in a Pod our sizes correspond to your pre-pregnancy size.

    It is normal to increase 1-2 cup sizes in the bust and ribs and to put on weight across the hip and thigh areas. However all our garments are specially designed to accommodate for this growth, so in most cases, you will remain your same pre-pregnancy size.

    We have listed on each product page the measurements for a size AU 10, plus, the measurements of the fabric stretched around specific areas (tummy, bust) so you can be sure that the garment will fit right up until go-time!

    Usually, grading is marked 2.5cm up or down a size, so use the size 10 measurements as a guide.

    If garments have only a little stretch, we will list our recommendation of sizing for you.

    If you don't like size charts (who does!), email us the style you are thinking about, and we can personally recommend a size for you. Find out more HERE

  • Can I wear it after baby is born?

    Yes! We pride ourselves in designing and crafting all garments to be suitable to wear during all three trimesters of pregnancy and well after baby is born thanks to superior stretch fabrications, a range of technical finishes and clever design elements. 

    If you still have question regarding this product, please do not hesitate to call us on +61 (03) 9415 6800 anytime between 10am - 4pm or email
