Beautiful Breastfeeding Clothes

Who said you have to be breastfeeding to wear our clothes?

Not me!

I stopped breastfeeding two years ago and I still love wearing Milk & Mummy dresses and tops.

Every summer I adore my Maya maxi in navy. It’s so easy to fling on for the school run or in the evening. Super comfortable and flattering. This summer’s new colour is a stunning burnt coral.

I also adore my Gabby drape top in muted hatch print from our SS15 range. Sadly this is out of stock now but we do have similar in the current range – the Giselle snake print top. Floaty and ever so slightly sheer. Being longer in the body it looks very sophisticated.

During the heatwave last week, all my regular summer clothes seemed far too hot. Thick cotton doesn’t work well in the high 20s. Shorts and a T-shirt was no good. I wanted something light and breathable and drapey. So I pulled a Milk & Mummy Tamia dress out of stock, put it on and pretty much never took it off! I’ll be taking it on my summer holiday. It’ll be really comfortable by the pool with flip flops but it also looks great with jewelled sandals in the evening. It’s made of 95% bamboo, a natural fabric which is breathable, dries quickly and actually wicks away moisture.

No-one ever guesses my clothes have breastfeeding access!

I’m not the only one in my family wearing my dresses. I’m proud to show you this great photo of my mum wearing last year’s version of Tamia on her holiday in Greece last week. This is the Zahra applique dress from last season. Same beautiful floaty fabric, just with a different neckline. She said she felt so cool and comfortable in it in the Greek sunshine.

My mum looking fab!

I’m thrilled when I hear my customers tell me that my clothes don’t look like nursing clothes. “I’d wear that even if I wasn’t breastfeeding” is music to my ears because that’s precisely what nursing clothing should be like. You should never have to compromise on style just because you’re feeding. There’s nothing “mumsie” here at Milk & Mummy. First and foremost we like to think that Milk & Mummy clothes are clothes that you’ll wear before, during and after breastfeeding. Because they are simply beautiful clothes that just happen to have discreet nursing access built in.

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.
