Mountain Mama Olympia Softshell Maternity Pullover Review
If you are like me, being pregnant gives you a whole new appreciation for the activities that you do on an everyday basis. From working out, to chasing after kids, everything takes on a new meaning during pregnancy. Mountain Mama has come up with a variety of unique fabrics and designs to accommodate these changes in life, while taking Mother Nature’s needs into consideration as well.
Utilizing their unique designs and desire to provide for active moms, the Olympia Softshell Maternity Pullover is a great everyday option for pregnancy clothing. This Polartec® PowerDry® V-neck pullover gives the comfort of feeling like you are wearing your favorite hooded sweatshirt, but with a much more stylish approach! With the V-neck shawl-collar, the Olympia can be worn while hiking as well as with jeans for an everyday look. Additionally, the kangaroo pocket, perfectly positioned around the baby bump, provides a cozy pocket to place hands to feel the baby move.
The design of the Olympia Pullover embraces the length of a tunic, with long sleeves, hand coverage, and thumb cuffs. The design of the Olympia Softshell Maternity Pullover would ideally be for a woman of taller stature and longer proportions. Being 5’2”, the pullover length fell at mid-thigh, and the full-coverage sleeves proved too long. The Olympia Pullover started to fit my belly toward my 3rd trimester, and despite the length excess, proved to be a favorite piece of maternity clothing that I will enjoy even post-pregnancy. Overall, The Olympia Softshell Maternity Pullover was a great choice for a winter pregnancy. This piece is extremely versatile and comfortable for the everyday active mom-to-be.
