HEEEELP I'M PANICKING! Going to wedding, breastfeeding + can't think what to wear..
Normally I'd wear a pretty (LONG) Ghost dress which has a matching wrap. But I can't get at my boobs. I'd been wondering about a wrap dress of some sort but they all seem quite short and I don't like my legs
Please come and save me from wearing my Top Shop maternity jeans to this wedding!!!!
I have a lovely soft pink silk skirt and top (sort of t-shirt shape, but prettier) that I found in a Next sale a few years ago. Is made of that ruched silk stuff that you don't have to iron, in fact the more wrinkled the better. Is the perfect wedding outfit for breastfeeding as it doesn't matter about crumpling, and can hide a fair few stains too! Sorry don't have any links to similar, but would suggest seperates anyway.
Thank you, thank you, ladies, for all for your ideas! I've just been hurling things out of the wardrobe in a frenzy and came across a pink silk skirt which I can squeeeeze into. So that could be a start! Lionstar - yes I know the material you mean, it's very pretty. I've seen similar in Jigsaw I think, so will have a look there too.
I went to a smart christening a couple of months ago, I'm also b/f. Wore a v front and back dress with a little cardigan over the top for feeding. Just did the top button of the cardi up to keep it fairly closed when i wanted to feed and pulled one strap down underneath it. Does that make sense?!
It must have worked as the photographer asked for a photo of DS sleeping - I had to explain he was actually feeding, so would they be happy to wait until a bit later when i didn't have a boob out
