Melbourne friends Liza Balakas and Kate Beaconsfield founded Ripe Maternity in 1996, when they noticed a gap in the market for fashionable, comfortable maternity wear.
With a dedication to making women feel stylish and confident through their pregnancy, Ripe Maternity Australia helps to inspire women to celebrate the journey to motherhood. Having a selection of accessible, style led and comfortable clothing is an essential for mums-to-be.
Maternity wear was significantly lacking in the fashion world until it finally found its place in the sun by becoming more comfortable and trending. Ripe Maternity has spearheaded this movement in Australia by launching its range of 12 outfits. Within five years, Ripe Maternity wear has expanded to the US and Singapore, demonstrating its success and popularity among expectant mothers.
