Due to budget, my maternity wardrobe was limited to the bare essentials. As for my nursing wardrobe, it pretty much consists of a couple of nursing bras and that's about it! Thanks to products such as nursing covers, Undercover Mama, and The Naked Nursing Tank, you really can get away without tops designed to be breastfeeding or pumping friendly. That said, I went almost a year without being able to wear a dress!! Very frustrating!!
Had I known there were amazing nursing-friendly dresses out there (especially ones that will carry you through your pregnancy and nursing days and beyond), like the ones I just came across from Larrivo, I would have purchased these a looooooong time ago!! I guess better late than never!
Larrivo has got mom-to-be's and new moms covered in sexy, functional, and fashionable gear - everything from dresses to swim suits to sleep wear!
Here I am in Larrivo's Ying Sleeveless Ying Maxi Maternity and Nursing Dress:
Made of a 90% rayon and 10% spandex blend, it is about the softest and most comfortable dress you could imagine. It will definitely become a staple in my wardrobe as it's incredibly cool and comfy - equally good for lounging around the house, meeting our mommy and baby friends for a coffee and play date, or even spruced up with some jewelry and heels for a romantic night out with the mister!
I love that it looks and feels just like a regular dress, but OH! Wait!! Just lift up the elasticized bust and you're ready to nurse your little one!! WOW! No need seek refuge in a bathroom or to wear leggings all the time so you can hike your entire dress up over your chest. No need to avoid dresses altogether. Larrivo to the rescue!!
Here's the Ying Sleeveless Dress in a knee-length cut, made of the same amazingly comfy and flattering material. Use it as sleep wear or for a day at the zoo. The sky's the limit!
I'm nearing the end of my breastfeeding days with baby number one, but that won't stop me from wearing these dresses after my boobies have closed up shop! No one needs to know they're nursing-friendly, it's my little secret!
You can buy one of Larrivo's dresses or any of their awesome maternity and nursing wear, and you can also enter to win one of their Ying dresses in my $1500 value Mother Of Giveaways ending at midnight tonight!!! Enter here to win!
