That is tricky! I actually had a similar situation and ugh—nightmare.
Anyway, I tried to find dresses that:
- Would allow you to breastfeed without having to remove the dress or lift the skirt over your head (duh).
- Had sleeves or thick-enough straps that you can wear a nursing bra with the dress.
- Would be flattering through the midsection.
Here is what I found! (I added a shoe suggestion for each.)
This dress from The Limited ($99) is pretty and springy and the fabric around the bodice looks loose enough that you could nurse comfortably. The nearly-empire waistline will also help define your figure without drawing too much attention to your midsection.
This is my favorite of the four I found. The waistline hits at a flattering spot and you can dress it up with jewelry. (Tinley Road Maxi Dress, $59)
I love the bright pink color of this Ann Taylor wrap dress ($99, from $130) and you could wear almost any shoe with this dress. The neckline might be a little low, but the wrap style will allow you to nurse as well. The ruching/draping at the waist is flattering too.
Last (but not least!), this Suzi Chin for Maggy dress ($85, from $118) is a nursing-friendly style that will help define and camouflage your waist.
I hope this gives you some ideas! Any wrap dress or wrap neckline is a great option. I’d look for a dress with long or three-quarter sleeves. If you want to go sleeveless, make sure the straps are wide enough to cover your bra straps. If it’s a more casual wedding, I’d wear a maxi dress with pretty sandals to move around more comfortably. If you end up having to stand and rock your baby for a while, heels may not be the best idea!
Good luck, have fun and I’m sure you’ll look great!
