How Sarah LaFleur Dressed—and What She Learned—While Struggling with Infertility
M.M.LaFleur’s Founder & CEO spent years struggling with infertility before the birth of her three children last summer. Here’s what she wore while going through IVF, and the wisdom she picked up along the way.
We all draw comfort from different sources—a bowl of pasta, the scent of lavender, a bath. For me, clothing has been and always will be one of the most powerful tools that lift my mood and help me feel the way I want to feel. Throughout this journey, which was often lonely and consistently unpredictable, what I was always seeking was comfort, and these were the pieces that provided that for me.
One of the things that I think we do well at M.M. is really understanding where you are in your life and helping you build your wardrobe around that. Our stylists have worked with women in all different types of circumstances: new jobs, promotions, interviews, pregnancy, chemotherapy, mastectomies, menopause, weight gain, weight loss, and even heartbreak. You name it, we’ve built a wardrobe around it. Infertility is one of the challenges many women will encounter, and while clothing can never change the outcome, if we can play a small part in making that journey easier for you, nothing would make me happier.
