Guide to Formal Dresses for the Nursing or Pregnant Mom + A Link-Up
Are you a nursing mama? Maybe you’re expecting? Then this post is for you! A complete guide to formal dresses for the nursing or pregnant mom. I had THE hardest time finding a cute (aka non-frumpy) formal dress for the few weddings and other events I’ve been to recently! I have totally been wanting to share these finds for a while! This sequin dress is absolutely divine and comes in three colors. I think you’ll like the other options I’ve linked below too because not everyone is big on full body sequins, haha.
NURSING: ACCESSIBILITY IS KEY
When choosing a dress or any outfit for nursing, the key is accessibility. I’ve learned that you really have to get creative if you’re opting for something that’s non-maternity specific (which I try to do). If you have straps, you can easily pull them down, of if there’s a plunge neckline you can just whip your boob out through the middle. I’ve honestly done it all. My favorite is the strapless because you just pul it down!
PREGNANCY: WAISTLINE IS EVERYTHING
If you’re pregnant – you can definitely find dresses that are non-maternity, it’s all about the waistline! It must hit right above your boobs so there’s room for baby or you can opt for a body-con dress if you’re brave! It’s the one time you get to confidently show off that belly bump! Pregnant bodies are simply beautiful; embrace them!
