Who we are
Grow is a sustainable maternity underwear line made in Portugal from organic and natural fabrics. We are founded on the principles that all mothers should feel comfortable, supported and confident, one ethically made bra at a time.
Our small team is based in Lisbon, Portugal.
The idea of Grow was born in 2018 when I was breastfeeding my first child, Alice, and developed a severe mastitis from wearing a poorly-fitted bra. Not only I struggled to find a comfortable bra that would make me feel supported and confident through my breastfeeding journey - one without unnecessary stuffing, underwires and lace accessories - but I was also finding it hard to have access to reliable information and getting the right professionals to help me during those challenging times.
It was then that I decided to create #ItsNotJustMilk, a community for all moms and my own line of sustainable nursing bras that would make women feel confident, beautiful and womanly while still feeling supported. Besides, it’s time we all got more vocal about breastfeeding.

The idea is simple: ethically made, soft and functional underwear for all moms. Quality over quantity. Each garment is carefully thought and designed to last during pregnancy, nursing and beyond.
Our core fabric is organic cotton, milled and dyed in the north of Portugal. Part of the reason we choose organic is personal preference—we just feel better about putting it against our delicate skin.
The other reason is that it’s better for the earth. Conventional cotton uses more pesticides than any other major crop.
