Girls we love / MOMS is a story about the most mysterious and amazing time in the life of a woman: a story about love, passion, struggle, cuddles and hugs. We are so pleased to chat with some of our dearest friends and people we admire: women we want to take care with the simple gesture of a dress that follows and fits their evolving body and inner soul during the revolutionary period of pregnancy. Feminine at her most, a woman feels her body grows and adapts to a new life, while her mind is a spring of happiness, panic, doubts and pure love. Feeling good with yourself is crucial: being comfortable and comforted without renouncing to look good is vital.
