Breastfeeding at a wedding in style

If you ask me what was the main reason I set up Milk & Mummy I’d have to say that it was my realisation of the absolute vacuum of nursing dresses to wear for a wedding when I was breastfeeding my own daughter six years ago. If I could find a dress that did give access to my boobs, it was rare that it was in the slightest bit flattering and it was almost certain it wasn’t a style I would be proud to wear! Of course this wasn’t the only reason but it did give me that final push to launch the business back in 2012.

If you ask me who is our main customer then I will happily tell you it is mums who have been frantically searching everywhere for a stylish dress to wear for a summer wedding, a dress that just happens to have nursing access. I say the nursing access part as a second thought as the primary reason I believe Milk & Mummy is so popular is that the dresses don’t look like your typical nursing dress. First and foremost they are downright beautiful occasion dresses that you’d wear regardless of whether or not you are nursing.

I thought it might help to give you my pick of our best breastfeeding dresses for weddings this summer.

For the print lover

Nursing dresses don’t have to be plain. We just love the trendy stork print Leila dress, which is fully lined so you don’t need to worry about it being transparent. Alternatively our ever popular Kate dress comes back this year in a very versatile blue zig zag print which will suit just about anyone.



For the high summer wedding

If you will be breastfeeding at a wedding in July or August or are lucky enough to be invited to a wedding abroad then you’ll stay cool and comfortable in Zelda or Tamia. These are both made from beautifully light and soft bamboo, a natural fibre which wicks away moisture and will let your skin breathe.

For the romantic dresser

Stunning Zissi with lace overlay is flying off our shelves and it’s not difficult to see why.

A classic for all seasons

If you have many weddings to go to then Josie is great as it looks equally good with black opaque tights and a bolero jacket for autumn weddings as it does with bare legs and strappy sandals. The shape is ultra flattering and what’s more it’s lined so it hangs beautifully. The hard part is choosing which colour!

About Me:

My name is Emma and I have three (!) wonderful babies. The oldest is my daughter Elsa, born in 2011 the second is “Milk & Mummy” my online boutique selling beautiful breastfeeding clothes and launched in 2012, and the youngest is my son Oliver, born in August 2014. All three exhaust me, excite me and make me proud on a daily basis and naturally all vie for my attention! But of course I wouldn't have it any other way.
