A guide for the guys on how to buy the right size!


FREE delivery on HOTmilk until Valentines Day!

Nice One! So you’ve successfully mastered the art of procreation!

Now, being a modern man you want to spoil the special lady of your life cause she deserves it. After all she is carrying your progeny right? And in a few short months or weeks she’s going to... never mind... one thing at a time. Or perhaps the crane has already flown and delivered your beautiful bundle of joy into your now fully inverted though infinitely enriched world. Well look there’s plenty of good reasons to spoil your special lady - birthday, valentines, anniversary (oops) or you’re just trying to dig your way back out of the dog box. But hey, to be fair you don’t need a reason, it's just a lovely thing to do.

HD130.JPGSo what’s so special about HOTmilk?

When a woman’s body gets hijacked by a baby it changes. Things swell. Sometimes most things and quite often for the better. But existing clothes and lingerie just don’t quite cut the mustard any more and, more than ever, comfort and a good fit become crucial for her. Then there’s things like how she doesn’t want bras with wires in them because they can inhibit milk production, stitching or seams across the nipples are to be avoided cause that can irritate the more increasingly sensitive bits and then she’ll need quick release clips at the front for easy access... for breastfeeding.

Now with that kind of knowledge under your belt you’re a blimin’ champ already. Even some women still don’t know all that stuff. Now with HOTmilk Lingerie you have all these important highly technical bases covered plus it all comes in a package that really ain’t too hard on the eye either.

Nice one HOTmilk! Now I can see what all the fuss is about!

Sizing Her Up...HOTmilkLingerie.JPG

To be fair, the biggest challenge before you is getting the size right. Too small and she’ll think she’s fat. Too big and she’ll think that you think she’s fat... and you’re (back) in the dog box.

Best place to start is to sneak a peek in her knicker drawer... like you haven’t before. Now the secret here, other than not getting caught, by pretty much anyone, is to pick a bra that she is wearing currently and that fits her well and that she’s not already bursting out of. This may require you to pay more attention, conducting even more painstaking research, like checking her out next time she’s wandering about the house in her smalls... like you haven’t before.

So back in the knicker drawer check out the size tags. With bra sizes the number is her rib-cage circumference or ‘under-bust’ and the letter represents her breast or ‘cup’ size. Now bear in mind that when a woman gets in the motherly way she usually will go up at least one cup size from what she normally is. (Yeh, nice one!)

Now make note of the sizes and come back to Belly Beyond, check our HOTmilk size guide if you need to and you're set.

Rumor has it chicks and blokes appreciate fancy knickers for different reasons. Apparently women like how it makes them feel good about themselves. Men like... well yeah you know exactly what you like and the motives are slightly different aye. So when choosing a style use your other brain and consider what colours and styles she likes. Eg: Maybe don’t buy her a colour she never wears and if she doesn’t wear thongs currently then maybe get her the bikini panties or some of them french knickers instead.

If she has already done her HOTmilk shopping for maternity lingerie (three sets is a good starting point to get her through) then you‘ve also got HOTmilk’s nighties, cami’s and PJ’s to spoil her with. Check out HOTmilk’s collections pages to get an idea of all the options on offer.

Worried YoAOAemail150.jpgu’ll Totally Blow It?

Don’t be - At the end of the day it’s the thought that counts right so you’ll undoubtedly still score brownie points for trying. She’ll love you for having a crack at it and you’ll still succeed in making her feel well and truly fussed about. Ultimately, you can’t lose. Belly Beyond have a fantastic return policy (check out our FAQ) and we can gift wrap it for you too of course!

So blunder on forth with great confidence! Just remember to keep the receipt. It’s your insurance policy for her, and hence your, happiness.

...And the real beauty of HOTmilk lingerie?

It’s the gift that gives back – if you know what I mean!

Blowing our own trumpet

I don't feel completely comfortable going on and on about how wonderful we are, but.. friends are telling me we MUST let people at least read some of the fantastic feedback we get everyday here at Belly Beyond

So here goes!

What our customers have to say ……..

Keep up the good work! I can't fault your friendly, helpful advice, and your fast turn around. Will recommend your website to my friends.
Jo (Lower Hutt)

I would absolutely use your site again, and I would recommend it to other mothers. Your communication was fantastic and your prices were the best I have seen for the product I was looking for. Your site was also very easy to use.
Rachael (Tawa)

Just wanted to let you know that using the Ergo has been something of a revelation for me. I'd heard good things about it from various friends/websites, but had no idea just what a big difference it would make to my life. My main purpose in purchasing one was so that i could move round the house and get basic housework done with baby on board, but I hadn't anticipated just how amazing it would be for breastfeeding - my baby is going through a rather gymnastic stage and having him sitting up facing me in the Ergo is much easier than trying to hold him in my arms.

It is also amazing for him to sleep in - 5 minutes rocking in the front position with the hood up and he is sound asleep. He recently slept for 1.5 hours in the front position, while I walked home from a local park, along a busy road and over a motorway and he didn't stir at all.

Thanks for much for stocking such a wonderful product - I've been raving about it to all my friends with babies.

Arwen (Auckland)

I just want to thank you for constantly providing awesome products. I have bought a few things from you now and I LOVE everything I have brought. Brolly sheets have saved my sanity on a number of occasions. The teething necklace is well made, seems to help and is incredibly cute. I love that communication is always friendly. Also I brought at 3.00 (probably even later), it was shipped at 4.35 and arrived on Stewart Island the next morning. You guys do such a fantastic job and I will recommend you too everyone I know who needs something you sell. Thank you.
Paula (Stewart Island)

Hi there

Don't know if I got around to emailing you or not (blame it on nappy brain). Just wanted to say how brilliant the ergo baby carrier is. It has been our saving grace. Jack was clingy and wanted to be held all the time which meant either my husband or I always had him to sleep on us while the other one ran around playing with our two other children or doing housework. Now if he is unsettled and needs a sleep, we put him in the pack which he instantly falls asleep in then transfer him to bed.

Its also fab to take out as so easy or to cook or do ironing while he is in it. I am so enthusiastic about it, it must be great to sell such a great product. Love it, love it, love it.

Also very impressed by turn around time. I got pack in Chch within 24 hours of ordering it. Keep up the great work girls.

Thanks and Regards
Nikki Connor

Hi Louisa and Heidi

I just wanted to say thanks for the awesome customer service – I was very impressed with the follow up email, phone calls and how you went the extra mile with the personal delivery. By the way, I love the Milk PJs – they have to be the most gorgeous PJs I’ve ever owned.

Keep up the great work.

Tania (Auckland)

Very quick service, I had it the next day after ordering.
Keli (Hamilton)

I would be happy to use the site again. Apart from the fact you have some beautiful products, I phoned up before I purchased the item with a payment query and the lady who helped me couldn't have been more helpful, I really appreciated her attitude and patience. That level of customer service is rare these days.
Tory (Auckland)
