Cute nursing dress for breastfeeding

New year, new arrivals which means it's time for another dressing room diaries: 2021 edition!

Dressing room diaries are great because there are no professional models, cameras or lighting (just me, the owner and our brand reps). It gives you ideas on how you could style the clothes - which is super helpful when you're a busy mom! 

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

We have several new maxis this year - perfect for a beach vacation or wedding -because we all need a VACAY this year! Our new smocked maxi dress 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 will also be available in a new purple color next month (May)!

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

I made sure to make the straps wide to cover a nursing bra!

Another great maxi for summer is another lift up flap - 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 will be available in a new blue color next month!

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

If you're looking for a great dress for church, bridal shower or baby shower, we have several great options. Our eyelet dress in navy is one of my favorite “go to” colors. It’s classic and hides dirt! Also, check out the embroidery on this fabric! So pretty! The dresses is fully lined and 100% cotton.

Fit tip: The dress fits TTS with a roomy fit (wearing XS- size 2). Wedges fit TTS (wearing 5.5).

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.
