The “Hot Mama” Story
In November 2004, Hot Mama opened its doors in the chic 50th and France shopping district. The concept was developed by Michael and Megan Tamte soon after the birth of their first-born, Allison, in 1997. Recognizing and appreciating the change parenthood brought on her life, Megan sought to build a store that focused entirely on serving moms and moms-to-be. Frustrated that most boutiques catered to singles and those in their early twenties, she targeted the missing gap – her generation – a group in their late twenties to mid-forties who had or were having children.
By building a theme around motherhood, Megan created an upscale boutique that nurtures, encourages, and supports mothers while offering only the most contemporary clothing to the fashion-forward mom. Megan and her team of buyers search the globe for clothing, jewelry, and accessories that will make women look and feel beautiful. For those who are pregnant, Hot Mama also offers today’s hottest maternity fashions.
Hot Mama is one of the few retailers designed by women and for women. Hot Mama’s team of buyers and stylists pride themselves on finding the best fit for women.
