About Us

Our Story

Bella Materna is the premier source of quality apparel for pregnancy and breastfeeding. We create sophisticated styles and beautifully crafted designs to help you celebrate and support your body during this amazing phase of life.

Founders  Anne and Candace were seeking to use their talents as trained couture designers to serve other women.  

"We met while designing for Nordstrom. We started dreaming in 1999 about this company after consistently hearing, 'there is no such thing as a pretty nursing bra.' Bella Materna was born to help all moms around the globe. 16 years later we are so glad to serve moms in one of the most critical times of life with tools to support them so they can support their family." 

Launched in 2000, the Bella Materna collection includes beautiful maternity bras, nursing camisoles, maternity lingerie, maternity workout, and maternity loungewear. All designs reflect the knowledge that women grow more beautiful during pregnancy and nursing; what they wear should enhance, not hide, this loveliness. They deserve beautiful maternity and nursing pieces that make them feel empowered. All moms know this time of life is amazing, but not without challenges. We exist to support moms in achieving their goals with strength and grace. Customers who return baby after baby is evidence of this success.

Using intrinsic elements of style, design, fit and comfort, Bella Materna revolutionized the maternity bra & nursing bra proving that fashion and function can beautifully coexist. Many other companies have followed our lead, but none are the creators of the first beautiful nursing bra.

The line is designed with quality first. We focus on access & versatility when creating our products. Our pieces are created to be flattering during both the pregnancy and post-pregnancy phases. These high quality products have a long life; you can wear them for this baby and your next baby too!  

In 2008, we created 'Infinity Rings,' an adaptive device that lets you transition your nursing bra into an everyday bra. We invented it because so many moms came back to us when they had finished nursing and told us our bras were the most comfortable they had found. They were made to last, and they were pretty! Our customers wanted them for regular wear and we made it possible.

We have served moms for all of their babies; women say, "I love my Bella Materna. It served me well in the last pregnancy; I am going to add more to my wardrobe for the new baby." We also hear; "the last pregnancy I suffered with low quality bras. Not this time-- I deserve quality that will last for this baby and any future pregnancies." Moms deserve beautiful comfort-driven wear for maternity, nursing and beyond; our company history shows that this always has been and always will be our focus.

Bella Materna products are made from high quality materials that are Oeko-Tex 100 certified to be free of toxins for moms and babies. Our design studio is in Seattle, and we manufacture here as well as import some items to keep up with demand. Either way, we ensure all products are produced under safe healthy conditions.  We believe in what we make: 100% satisfaction guaranteed.
