Maternity clothes were originally little more than oaken barrels, designed less for utility and more out of a fear that cloth exposure would result in excessively clumsy babies. Leave superstitious wardrobes in the past with today's deal: for $10, you get $20 worth of maternity and nursing clothing and accessories at Elegant Mommy, a one-stop motherhood shop on the corner of 49th Street and Western Avenue. Today's Groupon can also be used for online orders.
Elegant Mommy houses a treasure trove of helpful goods in an unassuming storefront. The interior is full to bursting with carefully organized racks of clothing, accessories, and useful baby aids. Numerous nursing bras from Anita are available for size-shifting plumage; pick up a supportive black bra for $34.49 or a white underwire for $49.99. Topless undershirts ($15) are worn like a tube top around the baby bump, affordably expanding your expanding wardrobe. Undercover Mama nursing shirts ($19.99) make modest nursing possible without any surprise shows for passersby. A variety of goods handmade by local families are also available for sustainable purchase, including Baby Roo slings ($46.99) for colorful baby wearing. This Groupon is not valid on sale items or for cloth diapers.
Much of Elegant Mommy's stock is gently used, high-quality maternity wear. Mothers wear draping dresses and shirts for nine months and then don't know what to do with the clothing aftermath. Elegant Mommy owner Shelly Gaddis, herself a mother, spotted the poor logic in the supply-and-demand chain and created her store for the singular purpose of giving mothers-to-be a place to obtain chic duds and new mothers a place to deposit their still-good wardrobes. The store's stock of locally made goods directly supports work-at-home moms, rounding off the community-support tally with resounding panache.
Tax and shipping costs are not included in online orders.
Examiner.com praises Elegant Mommy's chic, affordable maternity wear:
- I am so proud and excited for this fellow mom [owner Shelly Gaddis] in rural South Dakota. She's independent, a freethinker, and most importantly, she met a need we definitely have in our area. I encourage you to stop in and check out what she's got to offer. Recommend her store to moms-to-be and moms alike. – Sara Olson-Liebert
Blogger Midwest Money Saving Tips was excited enough about Elegant Mommy to give the store its own lengthy post:
- I found Elegant Mommy while I was pregnant with my daughter. They have a great selection of used maternity clothes that is constantly changing. I was able to find several different styles and a very good selection each time I went in. – Midwest Money Saving Tips
Elegant Mommy also has its own Facebook page, with over 650 pro-baby fans, many of whom have successfully ordered online:
- I received my BumGenius 3.0 order in the mail yesterday. Thank you so much! We cannot wait to begin using them once our little one is born in July, and I really appreciate your speedy shipping and GREAT customer service in the midst of what I know was a crazy busy time for you. – Tori Hanson Press
