Guide to Formal Dresses for the Nursing or Pregnant Mom + A Link-Up

December 28, 2016

Are you a nursing mama? Maybe you're expecting? Then this post is for you! 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.
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! 

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!

MY OUTFIT: Pink Blush dress c/o (comes in 3 colors)
