Beautiful Breastfeeding Clothes

Sorted for a summer wedding


The bulk of our sales since we launched our summer range has been for nursing dresses to wear to summer weddings. It’s all about party dresses at the moment and I love seeing all these beautiful dresses flying off the shelves. I like to imagine them being worn at many a special day up and down the country (and overseas), and the compliments the wearer might receive. So many mums contact us to say thank you for coming to their rescue with a stunning dress that they can breastfeed in too, as they’d almost given up hope of ever finding anything remotely stylish.

We’ve been invited to two weddings in the next few months and naturally I will need to feed Oliver at both of them. So given the mad rush on our party frocks, I thought I’d better decide which one to pick for myself, in case we sell out of my size!

It’s been a hard job to decide but I’ve whittled it down to either Josie emerald or Josie striped. I love the fact that Josie is fitted around my bust and shows off just the right amount of flesh, while concealing bra straps. I also love that it’s flared from under the bust with lovely fixed pleats that skim over my less than perfect tummy (still working on that one!). It actually makes me feel slim and like I’m finally starting to get my pre-pregnancy body back again. (I’m not but it does a good job of flattering me!). What’s more it’s lined so it has a really luxe feel and the fabric is a gorgeous soft crepe jersey. And it’s the perfect above the knee length. The colour is so vivid and a little bit different. Need I say more?

Josie striped is all of the above but with just a bit more pizz-azz due to the stunning striped skirt. It feels very designer. If I can’t decide then maybe I’ll get this as well. I won’t feel guilty having two because I know that I’ll wear both of them after I’ve finished breastfeeding. Unlike with so many nursing dresses I won’t feel like I’ve just made do with something because it’s got nursing access. It’s something stylish that I’d choose anyway. First and foremost this is what we hope our customers think.

As I said it wasn’t an easy decision to make and naturally I tried on quite a few other styles in my search for the perfect dress!

I started with Bea Istanbul print. I absolutely ADORE this print. It’s very good for my colouring (dark hair, pale skin) but the shape is not as flattering for me as Josie. Bea is perfect for mums who want to conceal their shoulders and their waist but show off their legs.

Our other very wedding-y style is Ellie. The shape is similar to Josie, but the skirt isn’t quite as full. I do love the luxurious jersey crepe of the teal and magenta versions and contrasting piping on the shoulders, but it’s a bit shorter than Josie and being on the very tall side, I prefer that extra length.

If you want something that you can easily dress up and dress down so you get lots of wear out of it all through summer then I’d go for Tara, Kate or Polly. Many mums choose Tara pistachio blossom print dress for weddings. The placement print makes it a bit different. Kate is an ultra flattering style with a gorgeous twist detail around the bust and comes in three colours. Polly is a dreamy romantic style dress with a gorgeous floaty full skirt in a grown-up grey colour which works brilliantly with coral accessories.

By varying the colours, lengths and fits we offer we hope we have something in our range for every mum, as we realize new mums come in lots of different shapes and sizes.

It’s funny to think that it was almost three years ago to the day that I was looking for a nursing dress to wear to a wedding while breastfeeding my daughter and it was that completely futile search which led me to set up Milk & Mummy in the first place. Now I’m spoilt for choice, which is just how it should be!

We have everything from casual breastfeeding tops for a day at home to glamorous breastfeeding dresses for weddings. Many of our nursing dresses are also maternity dresses and we also sell beautiful breastfeeding covers and cute baby dribble bibs.
