THE Service HQs and Clothing
SPO within the Defence Materiel
Organisation are trialling new
maternity wear for sailors, soldiers
and airmen based on the current
Disruptive Pattern Navy Uniform
(DPNU) and Disruptive Pattern
Combat Uniform (DPCU).
This requirement has arisen due
to the change in dress of the day for
Army and to allow pregnant ADF
members to wear DPU to carry out
tasks, in and out of the office environ-
ment, throughout their pregnancy.
An initial number of DPCU mater-
nity uniforms have been manufac-
tured and are being trialled by Army
and Air Force members to verify
the design and identify if further
modifications are required. Prototype
maternity DPNU coats and trousers
have also been produced and, once
confirmed as suitable, will be trialled
by pregnant Navy members.
The maternity DPU coat is longer
and flared with side tabs to allow
members to adjust the coat as required
during pregnancy. The trousers have
an elasticised waistband with draw-
string and an elasticised maternity
panel at the front and back to accom-
modate the advancement of the preg-
nancy. The fly zipper, side pockets
and rear pockets have been removed
to allow for the elasticised panel.
