The perfect little black (and white) maternity dress

Back when I was pregnant with my kids (you know, back when dinosaurs roamed the earth), “nursing dress” was synonymous with “giant chest flaps on something shapeless and ugly.” Sad but true. So you’ll have to pardon me for feeling like you pregnant and nursing mamas today have it easy when there are options like this striped jersey dress from Polarn O. Pyret that we just came across

I mean, forget that it’s totally versatile and on trend, and the soft jersey will work through the summer and well into fall with the addition of leggings; forget that the little details like the contrast-trimmed puff sleeves are darling or that the flap is camouflaged by the stripes; where’s the gigantic, “hello I am a nursing garment” flap? Nowhere to be found.

That A-line skirt is flattering on every shape, but is especially kind to postpartum bodies so you’re going to look totally cute in any season with this one. I bet you have someone who peels grapes and feeds them to you, too. Hmph. -Mir
