Hotmilk Maternity & Nursing

Hotmilk launched over fifteen years ago, when our founder, Lisa Ebbing wasn’t prepared to give up wearing beautiful lingerie just because she was about to become a mother. She wanted to create a brand that empowered her to have self-confidence as her body shape changed. Drawing on her experience and her newfound respect for the strength of a woman’s body, she decided to create products that defied the norm and pushed the boundaries of maternity and nursing wear.

Today, Hotmilk is world-renowned for developing forward-thinking premium products for the everchanging female body. Based in Mount Maunganui, New Zealand, Hotmilk proudly employs a team of women to help carry out this vision.

Made mindfully, Hotmilk continuously develops and deepens our focus on the environment and actively embraces inclusivity and diversity.

Addison Clothing

Addison came about from owner, Hayley’s, struggles to find stylish, practical, functional and affordable clothing while pregnant and breastfeeding. Even now as Hayley’s boys are grow older, it is still difficult to find designs that are flattering and easy to wear which fit in with her lifestyle. Every piece of clothing Hayley designs has mums like you and me in mind. It needs to be easy to throw on, make you feel good and be washed and worn over and over. 

From experience, Hayley knows that breastfeeding (especially in public!) isn’t always an easy task. Addison’s range of breastfeeding clothing allows mums to be able to breastfeed anytime and anywhere with confidence. The journey of motherhood is such an amazing yet hectic one and clothing needs to reflect and support this. I love helping mums to feel confident in what they wear.

Addison is for the modern mum.
