10 Nursing-Friendly Party DressesNicole Balch
I’m a gal that loves to wear dresses, but it’s often hard to find nursing-friendly options. Especially when it comes to cocktail and party dresses. Here are 10 fun options (54, if you count all of the color combinations!) to choose from to make mama and baby happy.
Melanie Dress in Silk Organza 1 of 10This faux-wrap dress has just enough give to make it work for nursing, and it comes in 6 pretty colors.
J. Crew, $250
Royal Azel Dress 2 of 10Great color, a big bow, and a raw edge make this wrap-top dress a winner.
Sequined Wrap Dress 3 of 10Most sparkly, sequined dresses are shifts with no stretch and no access to 'the girls.' This wrap dress is a welcome option, and also comes in black.
Evie Dress in Silk Chiffon 4 of 10This bias-cut, a-line dress is supremely flattering, and comes in 14 colors (on sale too).
Silk Crinkle Crossover Dress 5 of 10Floaty silk in the prettiest pink will have you feeling decidedly feminine.
Sleeveless Dress 6 of 10Also in black, the racerback on this one is a nice surprise.
Ruffled Satin Dress 7 of 10Available in four colors, with a button closure hidden in the bustline.
Old Navy, $44.94
Blakely Dress in Silk Taffeta 8 of 10This one has life as a bridesmaid's dress, but don't let that dissuade you. The ruffles are so pretty and it comes in 12 colors.
J. Crew, $200-250
Crossover V-Neck Empire Dress 9 of 10Available in 11 choices, this is a classic dress that will take you through holiday parties and weddings with ease.
Full-Skirt Silky Shirred Dress 10 of 10A stretchy skirt will keep you comfortable, the pink waist is adorable, and there are buttons in the top (a nursing mama's best friend).
New York & Company, $69.95
