BINSI: Review & Giveaway!

Have you ever considered the possibility of wearing something other than a hospital gown as you deliver your precious little baby? Have you ever considered delivering a precious little baby? Maybe not, but stick with me. Because this is cool.

Carrie and Kimberly, creators of BINSI Labor & Birth Apparel, were tired of those boring, uncomfortable hospital gowns. So instead of complaining about it, they took matters into their own hands and came with up something new!

BINSI skirts are designed to be worn during labor and delivery, and yes, they're hospital-approved. Each skirt is designed with snaps or Velcro to allow for easy, ehem, access, and with side slits to provide freedom of movement for various birth positions. or just for a little wiggle room... or waddle room, if you're nine months pregnant.

I'm sure I don't only speak for myself when I say hospital gowns aren't comfortable, and I don't even want to consider the number of people I may have flashed because of that obnoxious, wide open back.

Hospital gowns aside, these skirts are great! They're not just for labor and delivery, either. With an adjustable, draw-string waist and under-belly fit, they can be worn throughout pregnancy and then again as you return to your pre-pregnancy size. I'm months, if not years, away from my next labor and delivery, and I've got a BINSI! (It's super-comfy, too!)

Other perks include soft, cool cotton fabrics, a wide range of colors and styles to choose from, and an organic bamboo/cotton option.

Don't want a skirt?? Check out the other BINSI products, like the thankini, which would also be great for a nursing mommy or the Mama Ahh! chenille robe.

Because Carrie and Kimberly are just that cool, they're offering an in-stock item of choice (skirt or top) to one lucky reader! You may enter up to three times to win. Here's how:

I'm a follower, and since David tried (and failed) to make me one of these things for having Critter, I want a real one this time. BTW, never trust a guy who says "aw, I could make that" when shown an article of women's clothing online...

The Smiths said...

I like the PrimaMama. Or the Bamboo. Can I just say both, or must I pick just one to like? I'm so indecisive. For now I'll say PrimaMama cause it comes in pink :)

The Smiths said...

Ok, your giveaway has been linked :)

Well since baby will be arriving in the oh so cold month of January, I'm going to go for the Binsi Thankini. Anything that will make nursing easier sounds good to me!

I love a Mama Ahh! Robe.

Jay said...

Wow this would be perfect for birthing centers-maybe they could market to them. I didn't have a robe or gown to walk around with and wore an outfit that I wouldn't mind ruining!!
