Mayana Genevière’s Opulence collection
“Motherhood is a re-birth of yourself” says Nadine Woods, the designer behind Mayana Genevière. Feeling sexy and breastfeeding should not be mutually exclusive, and now it’s not!
Mayana Genevière is the perfect place for a nursing mother to obtain the softest and most elegant maternity lingerie. With the special Aluxtra clasp free-nursing technology, the Lorena bra from the Opulence collection offers elegance, sensuality, premium support and 100% organic cotton lining.
You’re on your way to that flat tummy with the yoga mat, and Mayana Geneviere’s all-in-one waist cincher will help you get there that much faster. This piece is like a corset for your waist, helping your skin snap back faster into its original tightness pre-baby, and leaving you looking comfortable and fabulous in that summer dress post-baby. This postpartum shapewear is also made with 100% organic cotton, designed specifically to provide abdominal support postpartum, and the perfectly breathable fabric leaves you dry and sexy as you express post-birth water retention.
