With the summer comes sun (too much or not enough!) along with weddings, BBQ’s and parties which present their own sartorial challenges before even thinking about having to factor in outfits you may need to breastfeed in. Investing in nursing dresses for one-off occasions isn’t always possible so it’s great to find a wealth of regular dresses on the High Street that also work well for breastfeeding so you can treat yourself for the summer and still wear it afterwards when your baby has moved on without feeling it’s an obvious nursing dress.
I’ve picked out 15 of the best to take you through the warmer weeks and beyond in style whether you’re breastfeeding now or not. And yes, technically there are 14 dresses plus one playsuit but it was just too cute to resist and will look fab with flat sandals for a relaxed summer BBQ.
