Dressing Room Diaries - Spring/Summer 2022

Summer is almost here and so are some of our NEW styles to help make breastfeeding or pumping easier! ūüėć Here is your dressing room diaries for the summer!

"Dressing room diary" blog posts are the BEST! They give you an even better idea of how the clothes will look and fit (without any professional cameras/ models), along with jeans/shorts/shoes we found online to help style them (which is super helpful when you're a busy mama)!

Side note: We don't get any commissions for the links.

First up: Our brand new chevron nursing tee. It's made with our best-selling cotton/spandex fabric (so soft and washes great)! It's SO cute with light jean shorts or jeans (love my new favorite gray skinnies)! We're calling this color hot peach! It will arrive in June.

Fit tip: Nursing tee fits true to size (wearing XS). Jeans size down one (wearing 0). Sandals fit TTS for Madden (I size up 1/2 size to 6 in Steve Madden).

This next nursing tee is a customer fav and now in a new color - black! This is our 100% cotton ruffle tee which comes in several other colors (navy, watermelon and mint. This one washes great but to avoid 1" shrinking- hang to dry. Looks great with shorts but love mine with jeans and sandals or wedges!

Fit tip: Tee fits true to size with a roomy/relaxed fit (wearing XS). Size down if between sizes. Jeans fit TTS (wearing size 26). Wedges fit TTS (wearing 5.5). Sandals fit TTS for Madden (I size up 1/2 size to 6 in Steve Madden).

Another great summer tee but with a lift-up flap access, is our asymmetrical tee in black and olive! Both have been recently re-stocked! The fabric washes great, has a great stretch (without being super clingy). They look great with shorts or jeans and they're long enough to wear with leggings!

Fit tip: Tees fits TTS (wearing XS). Jeans run a little big (wearing size 2 but would have sized down one). Shorts fit TTS (wearing 2).

Fit tip: Nursing tank fits TTS (wearing XS). Jeans run a little big (wearing 2 but would size down one). Wedges fit TTS (wearing 5.5). Tunic Nursing Tank Top Rust

If you're looking for a more formal nursing dress for an event this summer, we have two new styles! Our long sleeve lace dress was such a hit, we made it in a super cute short sleeve version! The lace is more matte than the long sleeve version and has a little less stretch.

Fit tip: Fits TTS (wearing XS and I'm 5'1).

For more casual outings... our smocked maxi dress is a great option. It doesn't cling (no underwear lines here)! Lift up the smocked flap to reveal a criss-cross design to easily pull aside to breastfeed. It comes in regular and petite lengths! It's also available in berry!

Fit tip: The dress fits TTS. I'm 5'1 and wearing XSP (size 2).

Another great maxi for summer that also comes with a lift-up flap is our purple tie dye dress. It's 95% cotton and high quality. The nursing flap is held down by a small band of elastic so it doesn't look like a nursing dress! It also comes in regular and petite lengths and is also available in blue!

Fit tip: The dress fits TTS. I'm 5'1 and wearing XS (size 2) with heels. I would need the XSP with flats.

Sizing- Fit Quiz!

NQ size chart

All of our designs fit true-to-size with a relaxed fit (which compensate for extra weight and a larger chest). Most of them also have an A-line fit, which means they fit across the chest/shoulders but flow away from the body so your waist and hip measurements don't matter.

Our sizes are similar to maternity-wear: order your pre-baby size. If you're between sizes, size down. Typically, the best way to determine your size is to follow your pre-baby size in numbers on the chart (4/6, 8/10, etc). 

Plus Sizes: We follow a standard U.S. plus chart. Our plus sizes range from 1X-3X. NOTE: An XXL (in misses) is a size 1X in plus sizing.
