Why would you buy a nursing dress from us?

It’s tough being a small online retailer amongst all the giants with their big flashy ad campaigns and celebrity endorsements. But there’s a lot to be said for us small home-run businesses and so in this post I give you ten good reasons why you should buy from Milk & Mummy as opposed to a high street chain selling nursing clothing:

1. Exclusivity. We only place small orders of each style. Every clothing item we sell comes from abroad and often we are our supplier’s sole UK distributor. So the chances of a cringe-worthy run in with another mum wearing the same dress are very, very slim. This is especially important to avoid at a wedding, and we specialise in nursing dresses for weddings and special occasions.

2. The quality is amazing. Because the production runs are small, the fabric quality is high (organic where possible) and Milk & Mummy carefully checks the quality of every shipment.

3. We care. And so do our suppliers. Because our suppliers are producing relatively small amounts they are able to keep a closer eye on the factories they use making sure the working conditions are good.

4. Comfortable shopping! Shop while sitting on your bottom, in your favourite chair (probably while breastfeeding) with a cuppa at your side.

5. Save on the money and high levels of stress of “going into town”. No need to park (where we live that’s around a fiver for two hours – more than my postage fees!). No need to pay for a drink (and usually cake too) in a café to breastfeed your screaming baby because it’s taken so long just to get into town, out of the car and navigate your buggy round the cramped aisles of a stuffy shop just to find they don’t have anything in your size and now baby has woken up starving! So in total that’s at least £10 saved already, not to mention the time and energy saved too.

6. Super speedy order turnaround which often amazes our customers. Normally if we get an order by lunchtime it is dispatched the same day and as we send everything via Royal Mail first class signed for post most orders arrive the next working day. That’s much quicker than a lot of the bigger online retailers out there.


7. Try on at home in the comfort of your own bedroom.

8. Free returns. On everything. We completely understand that new mums often don’t know what will suit them and what size they are and we want every mum to have the chance to return any purchase they are not 100% happy with.

9. Customer service is really important to us. We often go the extra mile because we can. This means the little things like keeping a waiting list for popular styles and emailing customers when they come back into stock and wrapping each and every order in tissue paper.


10. OK so this last one might sound a bit selfish but isn’t it good to know that you are supporting a single-handedly run, mum-owned UK business rather than lining the pockets of the shareholders of a large high street chain??!
