Maternity workwear with a difference

Dressing for the office with a growing bump is a sartorial challenge we are all too familiar with. Madderson London founders, Sara Madderson and Helen Hughes, both worked in a corporate environment during their pregnancies, which means we understand a thing or two about finding suitable yet stylish work attire. Yes, there has to be a mandatory black jersey dress or top that will do for those days when anything else seems like too much effort. But we believe we have created a collection that offers ‘classic with a twist’, incorporating far more flair and style than typical maternity workwear options, to help working ladies achieve an office wardrobe that is tailored, polished and above all, elegant.

This series of mood boards work around perennial Madderson London favourites and are designed to inspire a workwear look that will have the rest of the office wishing they were pregnant too!


Versatile, comfortable, stylish. The Olivia dress is incredibly flattering and our premium British jersey offers supreme comfort all day long. Simply add a skinny belt, chunky jewellery and flats for minimalist chic.

Big meeting? Need to dress to impress? The Coco is possibly the perfect solution. Impeccably tailored. Understated yet impactful thanks to the beautiful gold French brocade trim. Add statement jewellery and nude high-heeled pumps and you’re good to go.

A shift dress with a difference. Simple, clean lines with a touch of luxe. The gold trim brings a new dimension to the typical work wardrobe shift dress. With inbuilt glamour, Camilla will take you effortlessly from the office to after work drinks.

Our most feminine workwear option. Fluid, drapey silk and a pussy-bow neckline makes this dress demure and lady-like. Definitely not just for the office.
