Breastfeeding at a Wedding in Style

I’m very excited to introduce you to Milk & Mummy who have a gorgeous selection of maternity and nursing clothing, but particularly a fab range of dresses suitable for breastfeeding in at those special summer occasions such as weddings and christenings.

The lovely Emma has very kindly sent us her pick of the best nursing dresses, so you can feel comfortable and look beautiful at summer events!

And don’t forget we can help you to get the right nursing bra to wear under your dress!

Here at Milk & Mummy we specialise in selling stylish breastfeeding dresses for weddings. In fact, most of our orders at this time of our year are for mums desperate for find something gorgeous to wear at a friend’s wedding or their own baby’s christening that flatters them AND allows for easy feeding. I know all too well myself how difficult it can be to find something that fits the bill, and it was after an especially frustrating shopping trip on the high street looking for a nursing dress for a wedding over three years ago, that I decided to launch Milk & Mummy.

We like to think that we can solve your breastfeeding outfit dilemma through selling beautiful dresses that just happen to have really simple nursing access. The kind of dress you’d wear even if you weren’t breastfeeding. So here is my pick of our party dresses, depending on your preference:

Pretty in print

We all love a print and this striking one from Mothers En Vogue is sure to turn a few heads.

HOTmilk Lure Nursing Bra

New to our range this year is the HOTmilk Lure Nursing Bra, which has immediately become a favourite of ours.

This can be matched with the HOTmilk Eclipse Bikini Brief for a matching set.

Available in sizes 32D-38J.

Price £39.95.

Moulded Nursing Bras

Many of the pregnant ladies and new mums we meet are used to wearing moulded underwired bras and worry about moving to soft cups bras that may not give them the shape they are used to. They are then very surprised when we show them the range of moulded nursing bras we have available.

We are highlighting three of our favourites here, although the full range can be seen on our website.

Cake Mousse Nursing Bra

Cake Mousse Nursing Bra

First up is the very popular Cake Lingerie Mousse Nursing Bra.  This is a great bra for those of you with smaller backs and cups.  Starting at a 30A up to a 38DD, we have found this gives a great shape and with the plunge front, it is perfect for under lower cut tops.  Available in the gorgeous rose pink, or fig if you prefer a darker colour and now, it also comes in maple (skintone).  Matching briefs make this set perfect to make you still feel good about yourself during pregnancy and whilst breastfeeding.

Next we have the absolutely gorgeous Royce Poppy Nursing Bra.  New this summer from Royce, it has been an instant hit for our customers.

Royce Poppy Nursing Bra

Soft and simple with the lovely vintage floral design, it really feels like you are not wearing a bra when you put it on, but it still offers fantastic support.

Sizes available from 32D – 40FF.

 

 

 

Finally, we know that some of you still want an underwired option, so we have the Cake Lingerie Croissant Nursing Bra.

Cake Lingerie Croissant Nursing Bra

Cake Lingerie Croissant Nursing Bra

Now, we don’t recommend that you wear an underwired nursing bra until baby is at least 12 weeks old, but many of our ladies who are feeding beyond 6 months really like this style as it gives them the support of an underwired bra and the fabric gives a smooth line under your tops.  As with the Cake Mousse Nursing Bra, this also has a lower front making it look like an ‘ordinary’ underwired bra, and is suitable for lower cup tops, even in the larger sizes.

Available in 3 colours, dark, light and the new raisin (purple), this is one of our bestselling underwired nursing bras in 32C – 40H.

 

So, these are three of our favourite moulded nursing bras, and we have just added to the website the new Royce Pollyanna Nursing Bra, another skintone moulded nursing bra.

We’d love to hear from you if you have a favourite moulded nursing bra.
