February 23, 2024 ยท by Andrea Long

Spring is in the air, and with it comes the desire to shed the winter layers and embrace the fresh styles of the new season. For mamas, this can sometimes feel like a challenge, especially when navigating the world of nursing-friendly clothing while maintaining a sense of modesty. But fear not, fashionistas! This blog post is here to guide you through the delightful world of modest nursing-friendly dresses that will have you blooming with confidence this spring.

Finding the Perfect Fit:

Style comes in many forms, and what feels right for one mama might not for another. The key is to embrace your personal style while ensuring the dress offers easy and comfortable nursing access. Here are some popular options to consider:

  • Empire Waist Dresses: These flowy frocks with a high waistline are flattering for all body types and offer discreet nursing access by lifting the bodice. The Sunshine & Lemonade dress is light and fresh with a fun lemon print. The drawstring waist pulls in the waistline (perfect for after having a baby, right?) and the functioning buttons make this little dress nursing-friendly. Look put together with this cute dress and some white sneakers for a lunch date or errand run!
  • Button-Down Dresses: A classic and versatile choice, button-down dresses provide easy access for nursing while maintaining a polished look. Our Picnic for Two dress is a classic button-down look with a feminine flair. The silhouette is flattering with the tiered maxi style, and the embroidered flowers on the shoulders give it that extra something special. The functioning buttons are a plus! 
  • Wrap Dresses: The surplice style of wrap dresses allows for adjustable coverage and a comfortable nursing experience. The Fate Found Us dress is an adorable floral number with tons of dainty details, including functioning buttons. The high-low style with ruffles is feminine and fun, while the belt pulls in the waistline. You can find other modest wrap-style, nursing-friendly dresses here and here
  • Tiered Dresses: With their layered construction, tiered dresses offer a feminine and modest silhouette while providing nursing access through hidden openings. We love the flowy look of the Stopped to Say Hello dress. This midi length dress is a postpartum dream - loose, flowy, and nursing-friendly! You'll love the soft, green floral and gentle tiers of this dress. 
  • Maxi Dresses: The ultimate in comfort and coverage, maxi dresses are perfect for warmer days and offer ample nursing access through strategically placed layers or clever construction. The Something About Her dress is another sure favorite for after delivery. Loose and flowy, yet polished and classy, this dress will be one you reach for again and again. 

Beyond the Basics:

Now that you have the foundation, let's explore some additional ways to elevate your spring wardrobe:

  • Embrace the Prints: From delicate florals to playful stripes, don't be afraid to add personality with your print choices.
  • Accessorize Wisely: Hair accessories, scarves, and belts can add a touch of individuality and complement your nursing-friendly dress.
  • Layer Up: For cooler spring days, add a cardigan or denim jacket for extra warmth and style.
  • Shoe It Up: From sandals to sneakers, choose footwear that complements your dress and your daily activities.

Remember, mama, you deserve to feel beautiful and confident this spring. With a little planning and these handy tips, you can find the perfect modest nursing-friendly dress that reflects your unique style and allows you to embrace the season in comfort and joy.
