Start A Maternity Store

Maternity wear is typically created with a loose, appropriate fit containing elastic, tabs, and stretchable fabric to provide extra comfort to the wearer. The demand for formal maternity wear is increasing, a trend that is because of an increasing number of working females.

According to records, the the number of pregnant working mothers is increasing tremendously, a trend that will continue for the next few years. Therefore, starting a maternity wear store at a strip mall or setting up an online shop can be a great business venture.

Here are some real life success stories of starting a maternity store:

1. Mamalates ($60K/year)

Wendy Foster, the founder of The Mamalates Birth Recovery Method, came up with the idea after experiencing the physical and mental challenges of postpartum recovery herself. She modified traditional Pilates exercises and used the foam roller for self myofascial release to help her recovery. After sharing what was working for her with other women, she realized the lack of resources and guidelines for postpartum recovery in the US and decided to dedicate her practice solely to prenatal and postpartum women. She then expanded her offerings to include a DVD and a training program for birth and fitness professionals.
