Here at Bella Mama we are getting lots of requests at the moment for fabulous nursing dresses for summer occasions that can be worn at a variety of special days out – weddings, parties, family picnics and christenings. The calls and emails that we get every day all follow a similar tale involving an upcoming special day and the utter lack of lovely clothes on the high street for breastfeeding.
I often hear about the panic which ensues in trying to find something that fits well whilst skimming over any post-baby lumps and bumps, lifting spirits and making new mamas feel fabulous. This is exactly the position I found myself in when my sister was getting married a few months after I had my second baby, so I know only too well how angst-making the dilemma for finding something both beautiful and figure-flattering, but that works really well for breastfeeding too.
I love being able to make suggestions for dresses to try, working with each customer to suggest a dress which suits their shape and colouring, working around the types of nursing access that they like or want to avoid. The benefit of having lots of different designers in our range is our ability to find nursing dresses for summer occasions, for any mama. Some designers are slimmer cut than others, some shorter dresses, some offer longer hemlines, others different fabrics and a whole range of different nursing accesses.
Pomkin’s beautiful Berenice dress was a sell-out as soon as we launched, and this was already the designers second cut of the season. Next time round I will definitely order more to cope with the huge demand!! The feedback on the dresses has been wonderful, with new mamas loving the silky soft fabric, complimenting the pretty design and variety of colours in the dress – being able to mix and match your nursing dresses for summer occasions with different shoes, clutches, handbags, jewellery and accessories each time you wear it rings the changes, and gives a different look each time! The nursing access is pretty ingenious too, hidden away in the folds of the seam of the dress, it is virtually invisible – this dress really looks NOTHING like a nursing dress at all. Well done Pomkin!
New mamas want nursing dresses which are practical for breastfeeding, but that fit well and look amazing. If you have an event coming up and you would like a beautiful dress to make you feel special and gorgeous, check out our lovely range of breastfeeding dresses at BellaMama.co.uk
