Description

Yellow high visibility vests for cycling.

Text on back says 'BABY ON BOARD'.

There are many mixed opinions about staying active when pregnant. In a popular UK pregnancy book it lists 'cycling in the racing position' as 'exercise that even an experienced athlete should avoid'. Without any solid scientific reason for me to stop (reasons given are all related to falling off the bike), I wasn’t prepared to hang up my two wheels because I was growing a human inside me.

As an experienced cyclist who cycles for her daily commute, I felt confident in my ability to manage my balance as my weight increased. The one thing I couldn't control though, were the other road users. Being pregnant does give you an added responsibility on the road: you are carrying special cargo. I decided I needed to increase my visibility to make others aware that I was carrying a passenger, so I created these vests.

A note about size: I am a UK size 8-10 and a size small fitted me throughout my pregnancy - I was still cycling to work at 37 weeks.

Also available in neon pink

    The high visibility vest is for 8-10 not 18-10 as described on the page. I am a size 10-12 and it doesn't fit and I'm only 15 weeks pregnant. It arrived late and I will have to modify it so I can wear it as I get more pregnant. The seller has not responded to any of my emails about ever selling the large size.

    Please note that when purchasing the vests the buyer can only select 'small/medium - 36-38"inches' so whilst in the text I had accidentally added an erroneous '1' before the 8-10 (now corrected) the buyer could not have purchased '18-10' as it is not an option. The buyer has been offered a refund.
    Unfortunately I've been ill this week which is the reason I wasn't able to reply promptly. I'm a hard-working Mum (to a 1.5 year old), I work full-time and I'm pregnant again. This is not my primary job so please allow time for a response, I do my best!
