Breastfeeding can feel pretty unglamorous at times. While there are plenty of shirts and tank tops out there that make nursing easy, breastfeeding-friendly dresses aren’t as easy to find as you would hope, when you need easy access to “the goods”. And god forbid you even think about trying to be fashionable while you’re breastfeeding, because cute dresses and nursing can never go hand in hand. (Insert sarcastic emoji here…)
But in reality, it can really seems that way to the breastfeeding mom. Trust me, I am one. As a mom who has breastfed two babies, I know the depressing disconnect that often exists between fashion and nursing all too well. I, like many moms out there, love wearing dresses and feeling like I put energy into my appearance. So naturally, I will jump on any breastfeeding-friendly dress that is practical and fashionable. While it can sometimes feel like nursing will take a major toll on your fashion choices, in fact, the opposite can be true. I did the dirty work for you and rounded up seven of my favorite nursing-friendly dresses that would not only be the perfect addition to your closet, but are sure to make you look and feel your best.
Stripes are perfect on just about anyone and this asymmetric dress is no exception. Great for formal occasions, the draped popover on top allows for easy access when it’s time to breastfeed.
