Anita started life back in 1886, and while it retains a traditional emphasis on excellent craftsmanship and quality materials, the styles in this collection are right up to date. The underwear, nightwear and swimwear on show are designed to meet your sartorial needs during pregnancy.
Anita never underestimates the importance of basics
Choose between underwire or triangle bras in this range from Anita. As the brand specialises in maternity wear, comfort and support are key to the pieces in this collection. But that doesn’t mean style has to suffer: playful paisley, polka dot and floral prints run through the range, while ribbon bows on briefs and between the cups on bras are fun flourishes. Opt for regular low-rise underwear or try a pair with an extended midriff section to help support your bump. Go for single-colour lingerie in white, black or nude, or try styles with subtle lacy patterning and sultry mesh layers for something a little different.
Swim to sleep in Anita
Nothing aids a restful night's sleep quite like a good long swim, and this collection from Anita takes you from the pool to your bed (with a quick change, of course). If it's time for a dip, the costumes in the range are styled to flatter your curvier-than-usual shape. Choose between a block-colour bikini or a patterned swimsuit - just add some white strappy sandals, sunglasses and a loose kimono for your walk to the water. The nightwear in this selection from Anita is defined by pretty, muted mauves and pink tones for a low-key and feminine look. Try pyjama bottoms for cooler seasons, or go for skirt or shorts during warmer nights. High-percentage cotton materials ensure a soft, breathable finish, while ribbed drawstrings at the waist and curved cutaways at the sides show attention to detail in terms of design.
