Stylish nursing dress needed...quickly!

have a party next weekend & a wedding next month. Had ordered a dress from mamas & papas on basis of great reviews but it looks terrible on. Makes me look like I'm still pregnant! Been browsing on line & they all look so frumpy! Am size 10/12, early 30's. Just after something that makes me feel nice!

Am not a confident feeder in public but maybe I need a non nursing dress that is accessible?! Either way I'm running out of time.

Anyone got any suggestions?

How about this?

Hmm - stylish nursing dress. I think that's an oxymoron. I wore an LK Bennett dress to a wedding with a 6 week old. They don't have anything similar on their website that I can link to, sorry. It was sleeveless, v necked, empire line with a drapey chiffon skirt (so handy for the post preg pudge) and had pleated fabric over the boobs. I just slipped off each shoulder strap and bared a boob. I wore a feeding burka [bebe au lait] to preserve some modesty.
It worked really well, the only issue was some slight dribbling which because the dress was chiffon, the moisture showed up immediately.

Thanks for suggestions. I think you are right - I'm on an impossible mission! I have oversupply and quick letdown (have to be careful not to spray anyone within 2 metre radius!) so need something easy to manage & protect my modesty. It's proving difficult!

I wore an Asos wrap dress to a family party the other weekend and it was a dream to feed in, just slipped the neckline down and popped DD on, very discreet,lots of people didn't realise I was feeding. Can't find the exact one I have but they have a fair few dresses with that sort of neckline - it was so comfy to feed in I ordered a few more. www.asos.com/search/Wrap?hrd=1&q=Wrap#state=Rf900=1465&parentID=-1&pge=0&pgeSize=200&sort=-1

I've got the Kate dress from Babes with Babies. Worn it to two dos and it's been great. I wore a pashmina too for extra security when I felt a bit "on show" feeding.

I'm thinking of getting another dress from them for DS' naming ceremony.

I have this in green and it looks pretty glam - even had some non-mums at a christening ask me where I got it as it doesn't look like a nursing dress.

Thank you. Like a couple of options on babes with babies. What's the sizing like? Am 10-12 depending on the shop!
