Pattern-Covered Maternity Wear

The 'Retractable Garment' Can Be Worn to Term by Moms-to-Be

— September 29, 2022 — Art & Design
The 'Retractable Garment' has been designed by ShenZhen IU+ Design Co., Ltd. as a piece of maternity clothing that women can wear to term in a comfortable, fashion-focused way.

The garment comes in a simple black silhouette, which is accented by a series of strategically placed cuts across the belly area. These expansion points will become more pronounced as the woman gets bigger and changes in appearance, while also accommodating a larger size perfectly. This works to highlight a woman's baby bump and also keep them more comfortable in their clothing.

Lead Designers Shen Jiye and Chen Yujie commented on the 'Retractable Garment' saying, "Using pattern variations, the retractable garment meets the functional demands of pregnant women throughout the entire process. In other words, the garment witnesses the entire pregnancy.”
