The collection is here! I'm so proud to get this collection in and to be able to deliver it on time to you!  All garments arrived at the studio last Friday and I've been shipping them out in batches. 

If you ordered something from the collection, please make sure you have filled out your survey via backerkit so I have your address and item information and can get it out to you.  If you have a question about your survey or you have ordered a sweatshirt or onsie (which were all shipped out last month) and haven't gotten it yet, please send me an email and we can sort that out.  You can email me at LecheLibre@LecheLibre.com with any questions!

Finally, thank you again so much for your support of this collection.  This project has been the culmination of my mission to be a body positive brand  and with your help, Leche Libre now supports women of all sizes to confidently breastfeed in killer style.  

Much love,

Andrea

Sweatshirts are here!

The sweatshirts have arrived and they look AMAZING!  I'll be working on getting sweatshirts out today and tomorrow. 

To those who ordered full collections, the sweatshirts will ship with the dresses in a few weeks.  If you want your sweatshirt shipped now, you can email me at LecheLibre@LecheLibre.com and arrange for payment of this shipment and the rest of your dresses will be shipped with the free domestic shipping. 

Update on LBBD and Reptile Tunic:  Both dresses have been cut and and are being sewn as we speak.  We ran out of material for the Reptile Tunic for size 26 dresses, so I've ordered more and it should be to the factory in the next few days.  The size 26 dresses may be delayed a week or two.  We're hoping to have all dresses done by mid December.  I will keep you updated on how things go throughout the process.  

Thanks again for all your support!  I'm going to get back to shipping these sweatshirts!

Onsies are HERE!

 Hi all!  We're moving forward with the Plus Size Kickstarter fulfillment.  Here are updates on where we're at with the production and fulfillment of this project. 

Onsies: The onsie's have arrived and I shipped most of them yesterday.  If you ordered a onsie and you haven't filled out your backerkit survey yet, please do so, and I'll get your onsie on its way to you.

Plus Garments:  The production patterns have all been completed and delivered to the factory.  As of this past Monday, all fabric, notions and tags have been delivered.  I have a production call tomorrow with my factory to get started making the garments.  We estimate that everything should be done by mid December.  I will keep you updated on how things are going with the factory and will ship items once they are completed.  

Thank you again so much for your support of this project.  With your help, we're creating a whole new world of plus size breastfeeding apparel so women of every shape and size can celebrate the power of their life giving bodies with fierce functional fashion!

Surveys coming soon!

WE DID IT!

I'm so excited to be finally doing my first Kickstarter update for this Plus Size Collection to announce that we PASSED OUR GOAL and successfully funded this project! THANK YOU to each and every one of you who came out to ensure the success of this landmark collection! 

This campaign has been a roller coaster of emotion for me.  A few days before launching the campaign in late July, my Mom called to let me know her doctor found some spots on her liver and pancreas. One week into the campaign, she was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and at week two, her cancer was diagnosed stage 4. I spent the last 30 days trying with all my might to balance being present for my family which will always come first and doing what I could to successfully complete this campaign.  There were many times when I thought my best would not be good enough but in the 11th hour we passed our goal and were able to end this campaign on a successful note. 

The world's first ever fashion forward collection for plus size breastfeeding women is going to be a reality! By being part of this campaign's success, you're helping to push the boundaries of plus size and breastfeeding fashion, as well as supporting a world where women are empowered to own the power of their body for the amazingness of what it is and to help break down toxic beauty standards. The outpouring of support from the breastfeeding and plus size communities has been amazing.  For all of you who know me personally, thank you for reaching out a hand to me when I was feeling scared and alone. I've been in a pit the last few weeks and with each positive word or act, you've been building a ladder for me. I'm so grateful to have you all in my life and words are not enough.

Thank you again from the bottom of my heart,

Andrea
