Pregnant women speak out: We want maternity work pants that fit!

24 weeks pregnant and this time around I'm grateful to be working mostly from home. My first pregnancy was totally different - I was working the 9-5 job and dreaded choosing what to wear daily. Everything was either too tight, uncomfortable or just didn't look right. It was easy enough to find maternity singlets, tights and casual (not so stylish) t-shirts, but maternity work pants? A rare occurrence! You could even see that some brands just slapped a piece of extra material onto their garments and called it maternity – a poor excuse for what should be a functional and supportive wardrobe essential for pregnant women.

Co Gear supports National Op Shop week
September 28, 2020

Why We Support Shopping Second-hand

Okay, so it’s not just the love for bargain shopping that makes the Co Gear team a big fan of op shops – it’s about how it reduces the impact on our environment as well. Opting to purchase second-hand saves additional pollutants such as dyes and bleach being released into the environment, as opposed to when new garments are made.

How Late is Too Late?

There’s a misconception around aging and the milestones we are expected to meet along the way. There are no rules (or timelines) when it comes to finding your purpose, starting a new endeavour or even finding love. Women's Workwear brand, Co Gear, discusses the importance of being open to change, at any age.

Companies like Accenture have seen a 330% increase in fathers taking parental leave – now this is some news we can celebrate!

How to recognize and overcome Imposter Syndrome

“Now the reason why my uniform affected my confidence was simple. It was because it was a man's uniform, a uniform made for the person who “should” be doing this job. So, it's pretty safe to say when my Impostor Syndrome was working overtime it was easy for me to say "I shouldn't be doing this job. I'm playing dress-up in men's clothing for a man's role after all."

Unisex workwear doesn't sit well with us. Here's why.

Companies will argue that there’s “unisex” options available but how inclusive are they really? Is it not just men’s clothing that’s been labelled as an afterthought to “include” women? Well we think it’s a dismal excuse to gloss over the elephant in the room. Unisex industrial workwear is not designed with women in mind.
