Cheshire, UK (26th September, 2012) – Bella Mama, a leading boutique specialising in chic maternity-wear, breastfeeding clothing and baby-care accessories, has been awarded the Bronze Award for Best Breastfeeding Top/Bra in the prestigious Practical Parenting & Pregnancy Awards 2012/13.

Practical Parenting & Pregnancy is a leading magazine for both new mums and mums-to-be, and has provided honest, genuine advice and guidance for over 24 years. By giving awards, they aim to highlight the best products on the market, with categories covering Buggies and Travel Systems, Car Seats, Feeding and Food, Health and Safety, Toys and more. Bella Mama’s Xanthe top has proven successful with new mums for its emphasis on a flattering fit, versatility, comfort and overall high quality.

Xanthe was designed to flatter pre- and post-pregnancy figures of all kinds; its fabric stretches throughout pregnancy to fit the bump, and also drapes in a flattering style afterwards, offering extra value for money. Designed for easy nursing, the top provides breastfeeding mothers with a central opening and a draped overlayer which can be pulled over the breast quickly for easy nursing access.

Kirsten Baxter, founder of Bella Mama, said: “Xanthe has been a runaway best-seller at Bella Mama; breastfeeding mothers often report it as their favourite top, with many returning to buy it in other colours. I am thrilled that the Xanthe top has won the Bronze award in the Practical Parenting & Pregnancy Awards 2012/13, and that their new-mum testers loved it as much as we do. We are always striving to bring the most stylish, comfortable and innovative items to our customers, and it’s fantastic to receive such outstanding recognition.”
