Designed by two moms for all moms.
Larken was born out of a struggle to find a comfortable and simple way to nurse and pump. While nursing and pumping with our first babies, we tried several bulky, ill-fitting tops and bras with irritating elastic and cumbersome snaps and zippers. Frustrated with the options on the market, we knew there had to be a better way.
So we designed it.
Both pregnant with our second babies, we began perfecting ultrasoft, hardware and tag-free essentials that could take us through pregnancy, nursing, pumping and beyond. The day Katie went into labor, Maggie received the first working prototype. From there, we obsessed over the details, testing and refining the designs based on our own experience and feedback from other moms to ensure a perfect fit, function and superior comfort. The result: versatile maternity, nursing and hands-free pumping essentials that can be worn alone or layered with your favorite pieces in your current wardrobe and can seamlessly transition from play date to date night, morning snuggles to the board room, or whatever else you have planned for the day.
About our name:
Larken: a name meaning fierce
Motherhood is beautiful, but it isn’t always easy. Here at Larken, we recognize that all of our journeys to and through motherhood are often a series of highs and lows, magical moments and messy struggles. We are inspired by your stories and your strength and are committed to helping you feel your best at any stage of motherhood.
The Larken promise:
Luxuriously soft, easy to care for fabrics
You don’t have time for high-maintenance clothes so we focus on designing versatile, machine-washable pieces. We carefully select breathable, ultra-soft fabrics that can endure the demands of motherhood and save time.
Always elastic, hardware and tag-free
Your skin and baby’s skin are incredibly sensitive. And when the baby is hungry or you’re multi-tasking, there’s no time to fumble with elastic, snaps, zippers or buttons. Our essentials are always elastic, hardware and tag-free for ease of use and superior comfort.
Designed for all stages of motherhood
We thoughtfully design pieces that don’t look like the standard maternity or nursing garments and that adapt to your changing body and needs so you can love them whether you’re donning a bump or pump, nursing, or years into your journey through motherhood.
Authentic. Real moms. Real stories.
