about borne toowhy a brand was born
Hi! I’m Jessie
I’m the owner and mum behind Borne Too.
Before having kids, my style was probably best described as tomboy chic. I lived in tees and denim-cutoffs yet loved mixing it up with girly pieces and heels from time-to-time. Mostly, style was easy, it felt effortless and self-expressive.
Fast forward to mum-life…
I went blindly into my breastfeeding journey with my first child. I hadn’t given any thought to how I might need to change my style and soon realised my tees weren’t so boobin’ friendly. I had a rocky start to breastfeeding and found the little clothing I did have just didn’t cut it (especially due to my gigantic milk-makers). I loathed that I had to buy clothes that served a purpose and not because I WANTED to wear them.
And so, Borne Too was born…
Borne of the need for something to transform my beloved tees into feed-wear that comfortably covered my mum-tum.
Borne from the need for soft, stretch fabric for my newfound curves.
Borne from the longing to wear all my other fabulous pre-pregnancy tops that remained miserably on the rack.
If style tells a story, it shouldn’t only be that you are a breastfeeding mother.
