Breastfeeding Dresses for Weddings

When I received an invite to a wedding not too long after the birth of my daughter I was a little nervous about what I would wear. I wasn't comfortable with my new body yet, and dreaded going shopping for clothes.

If you are going to a wedding soon and are worried about what to wear, here are some tips to help you find the dress that will make you feel both attractive and comfortable.

Flattering Silhouette

There are quite a few dress styles I find work well to provide a flattering silhouette for your new mom body. If you are not taking the baby along, consider some of these styles:

Breastfeeding Dress - Retro Red Floral Va Va Voom

  • Shift Dresses: Shift dresses can work quite well, especially if you have fabulous legs. You can go for a cute mini and look for fun colours and fabrics. But take a little care: if you are extra busty you might end up looking like you are wearing a mumu which will not be flattering at all. Try one on for size and see what you think.

  • Drop Waist with Blousing: A drop waist is great because it can be adjusted with the blousing to fall where you need it. You can look for a close fit at the thighs and then use the blousing to cover the tummy area. The look of the cowl neckline can also be worn quite low to accentuate your décolleté.

  • Flattering Necklines: Not to state the obvious, but your new mom body also comes with a few perks, and accenting your décolleté with a number of flattering necklines can help draw attention away from your tummy. You don’t have to go to the extreme, just try on a few different looks and find the one that makes you feel sexy without being over the top (literally).

Breastfeeding Dresses

If you are bringing the baby you will have to find nursing dresses that will be both flirty and practical. Easier said than done! What I find works very well is looking for distractions that will take away from the tummy area. Here are a few ideas:

Breastfeeding Dress - Black Vintage Blue Floral

  • Florals: Florals are always lovely at weddings, but they also create a perfect camouflage for problem areas.

  • Black and White: Look for flattering black and white patterns in stripes, herringbone and geometrics for sexy fun.

  • Coloured Patterns: Zig zags, paisleys and geometrics in colours-of-the-season are perfect for weddings and will make you feel vibrant.


Of course, the ideal breastfeeding dresses have been designed specifically with the needs of nursing mothers in mind.

Here at Peachymama, we have a number of options I know you will love.
