DS is getting Christened next month when he'll be 6 weeks old. I'm looking for a nice dress but have realised that I'll need easy access to my boobs for feeding! Am struggling to find something - all the nursing dresses on Mamas and Papas, etc, are a bit too boring. Any ideas?
Just had tge exact same dilema. My ds was christened last week. I wore a lovely a-line skirt and tee shirt style blouse. Felt great and had lots of compliments. Feeding wasnt a problem as top came up easily. I wore lots of gold chunky jewellery and glam hair. Didnt feel too frumpy but did the job. Try monsoon, oasis, warehouse, good luck.
MrsLettuce - I'm wanting something fairly bright - a lot of the nursing dresses I've seen are just black or navy and look quiet boring IMO. Budget wise, I'm not sure really - if I see one that's expensive (upwards of 50) and I really like it, I don't mind. I don't want to pay a lot for something I'd only wear once though. Will have a look at the wrap dresses, thanks
The Yumi and the teal ones are both lovely. I'll have another look round on the Internet. I'm going into town this weekend so will try get into Debenhams to have a try on - thanks very much Mrs, think I may have found what I'm looking for thanks to your help!
I've shared this a couple of times on here because its the one I bought for a christening - really nice colour and wears really well. Got some plum tights and plum ankle boots and I felt brilliant - glamorous for first time in ages! Fortunately have worn it a few times to different events (christening, xmas day, family party, friends party) so feel I've more than justified the cost. There's lots of nice things on that website (I'm not part of it!) just very chuffed to find a few more options out there...
