I LOVE wearing dresses all summer long, especially in the hot and humid weather in the south. This is my first summer breastfeeding, so I have been on the prowl for cute dresses that are nursing-friendly, which can be hard to come by! Usually search results come up with dresses with slits or hidden flaps that are designed for breastfeeding. While these are great, I spent over half of my pregnancy in maternity clothes and the first few months postpartum avoiding form-fitting dresses like the plaque. So, now I would like to wear cute dresses sans weird slits and flaps please! Here are a few of the cute dresses that I have had my eye on, and I am in the process of ordering:
It's no secret that I love Sonnet James (just check out my Instagram, @thetravelingrunner, to see our dance video we submitted to for her contest.) I also did a post on the piper dress featured again in the spring collection this year. The Liv dress is new to her spring 2016 collection and the v-neck gives you room to pull down and nurse without stretching out the dress. Sonnet James dresses are super comfortable and designed to allow moms to play more comfortably with their kids. Throw this dress on with some comfy sandals or sneakers and you are good to go. The site has more nursing-friendly dresses, this is indicated in the product description under each dress.
Here are some of my other favorite breastfeeding dresses of the summer that I am planning to order:
Rachel Parcell Every Day Dress- $110
I was THRILLED when Rachel Parcell launched her own line because I absolutely love her style. This dress has a button up front, making it easy to nurse. This dress should be a staple in every nursing moms' closet. She also released it in a bright red and I am in love! I can't wait to get one for the summer.
Piper and Scoot the National Floral Dress- $68
I LOVE this cute online boutique. The gal running the site always finds beautiful dresses and she makes a point to find nursing-friendly dresses as well. She's also a hoot to follow on Instagram.
Arden Store Floral Hi Low Wrap Dress- $48
Wrap dresses are wonderful for breastfeeding and this site is full of them! Some of these dresses are also carried on the Piper and Scoot website. I love the high low length on this dress and the bright coral color.
The Stephanie Dress from Roolee- $64.99
Roolee is another one of my favorite finds and I've had my eye on this dress all summer long! The store is located in Logan, Utah and I keep reminding my sister to pick one up for me. The functional, wooden buttons are perfect for breastfeeding.
Stay stylish all you breastfeeding mammas!
