Free NZ Delivery on orders over $100.00
We offer free delivery on New Zealand orders that are over $100.00. NZ orders that are under the $100 threshold will be charged $6.00 shipping. For orders over $100.00 if you return the whole order for a refund we will deduct $6.00 shipping fee from your refund. If you return pat of the order taking your order to below the threshold we may also deduct the shipping fee. Your fist exchange is free. However freight is a significant cost for us so we ask that when the customer is making an exchange for the second time of $6.00 for standard delivery and $7.50 for rural deliveries. This does not include cases where the product is found to be faulty.
For Australian orders we charge a $10.00 NZD for standard post 8-10 days shipping and $25.00 NZD for courier 2-4 days delivery and $25.00 NZD for post delivery other international orders.
We want you to be happy with your maternity clothes purchase and we understand the problems with making online purchases. If you are unhappy with your purchase for any reason you can return it to us within the 30 days after the web purchase date for a refund of the purchase price of a full priced item (this does not include a small freight cost) if the item is returned in its original condition including the original packaging and tags still attached. Please Note: If the item has been purchased while it is on sale or using a discount code that is over a 10% discount you can return it but we offer a store credit not a refund. Under the fair trading act we are not required to give a customer a refund because they change their mind or no longer need the item. Many online businesses do not allow you to return items purchased on sale at all. We do but we give you a credit note that is valid for six month and is transferable to a friend or relative.
Returned items must be unworn with the tags still attached and in its original packaging. We will not accept liability for items being returned which are lost during the return journey to our warehouse.
Return of Sale Items
Many of our competitors will not accept the return of sale goods but understand they are often not right. So by of compromise we accept their return and we will give you a store credit valid for six months.
Refunds – As stated above while we offer fee shipping to our customers because we see it as a small price to pay to make a sale of our maternity clothes. For purchases made using discounts or vouchers, the total refunded will only be the amount paid not the total product price. After 30 days returns and refunds are subject to manufacturers warranty.
If the goods you receive are faulty, we will replace those goods if the problem is caused by a fault in the product not general wear and tear. As per our obligation under the consumer guarantees act. Reimbursement for shipping expenses for faulty will be up to the value of the original quoted shipping cost.
New Zealand Exchanges
We ask the recipient to pay the shipping to get the order back to us. We will pay the shipping fee for the first exchange for New Zealand orders. Due the significant costs of freight we do ask that when the customer is making a second exchange they pay a small fee of $6.00 for standard delivery and $7.50 for rural deliveries. This does not include cases where the product is found to be faulty.
Australian & International Exchanges
Due to the high freight costs we do ask the recipient to pay the shipping both ways for Australian and International orders.

The following is an approximate guide to our sizing. The measurements stated are the body measurements during pregnancy not the garment measurements. However many of our styles are designed to be loose fitting so will be significantly larger than the size measurements. We have not included the waist measurements because your waist will be in a constant state of change. We endeavour to retain consistency of sizing across our styles however the different behaviour of different fabrics does make it difficult. So if you would like to exchange or return your purchase due to sizing issues we will be happy to honour request as long as the item is returned in accordance with the returns policy stated above. Please note our Kobo Tops are quite large sizing so you may wish to go down a size for that style.
|Size||Bust during Pregnancy||Hip during Pregnancy|
|8/XS||82 – 87cm||92 – 97cm|
|10/S||87 – 92cm||97 – 102cm|
|12/M||92 – 97cm||102 – 107cm|
|14/L||97 – 102cm||107 -112cm|
|16/XL||102 – 107cm||112 – 117cm|
|18/XXL||107 – 112cm||117 – 122cm|
