Pentlebay | Women's Tops And Dresses | For A Brand New Day

About us

Welcome to Pentlebay

I started Pentlebay in early 2018 with the inspiration of creating a line of clothes to suit busy mums like me.

My inspiration was born from a frustration really. I had been struggling to find the perfect place to shop online because, as a mum of two that works part time, who has the time to pop to the shops?! And when I do, well let's just say I don't get to shop for me.

Shopping online, each website I visited either had beautiful items that were too expensive, or more affordable items that were clearly catering to a younger audience. So it couldn't be for me, could it?

There was nowhere I felt comfortable shopping and nowhere that felt right for me.

Having worked in a clothing retail business for the last 10 years, I thought, well why not start my own brand? I could bring my own experience to the project. I had the passion and know-how, so one evening I started sketching out designs, showed them to my husband and we haven't looked back since.

When designing I look to create stylish, everyday tops and dresses that leave you looking and feeling effortlessly stylish. I use beautiful, soft materials for comfort and use a good mix of classic patterns like a Breton stripe, block colour, and more on-trend patterns like animal print for a little fun.

I know that when you're busy, you don't have time to ponder what you'll wear that day. You want something easy that you can throw on, but you still feel great in. Something that will get a comment or two when you're out and about. It's the ultimate scenario to have an easy no brainer outfit that makes you feel stylish.

We had a lot of fun at our recent shoot, and it was great seeing just how versatile the range can be. You can wear our dresses with boots and tights to look smart for work or a night out, and wear the same thing on a weekend with trainers and a denim jacket. Minor tweaks can make items take on a totally different vibe.

Designing is never far from my mind, so when I'm home from work and the kids are in bed, I'm sketching away. Inspired by a colour I've seen or someone fidgeting in something they're wearing. So far, the feedback has been great, and what's also great is I take that feedback into consideration for the next round of designs. After all, its not just me I'm designing for.

But it's not only the design of the clothes that I think of. As a woman, I know all too well what a nightmare it is to know what size to buy, especially online. If you're size 10 in one shop, you can be size 14 in another, and a size 8 elsewhere.

To deal with this common problem, we have launched our 'Fit Assistant' tool which we created after conducting research with real women of all shapes and sizes. If you find a new top or dress that you like, simply put your measurements into our tool on the product page and we'll tell you the right size to buy for your body shape, tips on how to wear it or we'll suggest products that may work better for you. Our 'fit & style' advice on all of our clothing pages has also been written with real women in mind to help you make a decision on whether an item is right for you.

I hope you love the range as much as me.

Thank you

I wanted to create a range of clothes to make women feel great.
