The Modest Mom shop – review and giveaway

Comments closed.  Watch for a winner!

This may be my 13th pregnancy, but I’ve been enjoying my first-ever custom made maternity skirt.  I haven’t had a denim skirt in years, and when Caroline of The Modest Mom (formerly The Modest Maternity Shop) offered a free item for review, I jumped on the opportunity, choosing the long ruffle maternity skirt in denim.

Caroline was a delight to work with.  When I didn’t fit neatly into a size category, she further customized her custom skirt for me, using the elastic from one size and the cut from another to give me a little extra space without forcing me to wear an oversized skirt.

Her work is neat, the fabric is durable, and the cut is very comfortable.  My new skirt has a nice slimming silhouette but plenty of room to move at the lower hem – not always the case in long skirts!  The maternity panel is comfy too, with plenty of soft stretch.  It was a bit too loose during my first trimester, but is perfect for the second and I feel confident that it will continue to fit for the rest of the pregnancy.

I should add that my web-designer daughter thoroughly approves of The Modest Mom.  She says the site is neat, simple and attractive, and easy to navigate.  No, my daughter didn’t design the site.  She just has a good eye for these things.

Oh, you’re waiting to hear the part about the giveaway, aren’t you?

Caroline has offered to sponsor a giveaway.  The winner may choose any skirt, any style, any size, any fabric in the shop.  Not pregnant?  Not a problem.  That’s why it’s now The Modest Mom instead of the The Modest Maternity Shop.

To enter, just visit The Modest Mom and browse the skirt choices.  Then come back here and leave a comment telling us which one you’ll choose if you win.

edit: I forgot to add other ways to enter.  Blog about the giveaway, share this post on Facebook, or Tweet it for up to 3 add’l chances to enter the giveaway.  Please leave a separate comment to let me know about each way you enter.

We’ll take entries until midnight Sunday, Feb. 7 and then we’ll announce a winner on Monday.  Or Tuesday.  Or as soon as we remember to choose one…

  3. HeatherHH says:

    Ooooooh! Glad to have seen this. I like the looks of the A-line maternity skirt, either denim or black, not sure which….

  4. I think I’d choose the non-maternity ruffle skirt in brown twill (polyester/cotton mix), but I keep changing my mind because there are so many nice options. At first I thought I’d definitely want the A-line. . . .

  5. and i posted on facebook, too

  6. i posted about this on my blog

  7. I’d pick the ruffle skirt in soft khaki. The brown floral is reall nice, too, it’s hard to pick just one.

    I’d love to have the long ruffle skirt in denim…non maternity. I LOVED all the skirts, and when I get pregnant again, I will definately be going back to that site to buy, as you can never find modest maternity skirts that “hang” that well!

    Thanks for the chance of winning one of her beautiful skirts!

  10. I also shared a link to this contest via Facebook 🙂 Thanks, great contest! 🙂

  11. If I won I would choose Calf length skirt with wide circular ruffle in denim. I am short and too much length would really make me look like a walking napkin. I love the ruffle too. Adds just the right touch of femininity without overdoing it.

  14. I like the long ruffle skirt. Thanks for doing this!

  15. What a great giveaway!
    If I won I’d choose the Woman’s Ruffle Skirt in black and white floral.

  16. I like the a-line maternity skirt. I just switched at the beginning of this pregnancy to being skirts only because they are all that fit! And I’ve been so much more comfortable and I started seeing why my husband kept telling me he thought long skirts are more modest than pants. I am struggling to find decent skirts, maternity or otherwise at a decent price though!

  17. wow that is a great site, I wonder if they shipped in Canada and how much it would cost!

    I love long skirt, my husband love me wearing long skirt but during pregnancy my normal long skirt don’t fit properly and all we have for maternity store over here is “Motherhood maternity” I can’t shop there, sorry for those who are big fan of it but I seams that I could find lots of club wear maternity style clothing and nothing that will come close to modest mama wear!!!!

    This is my third pregnancy (my eldest is not even 3 yet) and I practically have a pregnancy belly all the time so nice, comfortable, modest, durable maternity clothes are a must !!!

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful store 🙂

  18. I would probably choose the A-line tan maternity skirt.
    I didn’t have any skirts with either one of my 2 pregnancies, because I couldn’t find a nice one.
    These look wonderful and well made!
    Thank you for your site
