Nursing your child shouldn’t mean hiding away in a corner.
There are plenty of nursing dresses that blend style, comfort, and functionality – minus the unflattering part.
Whether you’re at a formal event or just enjoying a day out, these dresses will make breastfeeding on the go a breeze, keep you feeling discreet and have you looking the part too.
What should I consider when choosing a nursing dress?
Before diving into our list, it’s essential to understand the key factors that make a dress nursing-friendly and suitable for your needs. Think about fabric, ease of access, and style. Nursing outfits come with cool features like easy zips and buttons you can handle with one hand when it’s feeding or pumping time. Today’s styles lean more towards hidden panels and secret openings to make these clothes work for any occasion. Alternatively if you can’t find a specific nursing dress in the fabric or style you want – common when it comes to event-wear or workwear – you can always opt f0r V necked dresses, looser button downs and those made of stretchy material, which make it easier to lift up or move to the side to feed.
