If I thought finding plus size maternity clothes was hard, the lack of plus size breastfeeding friendly clothes is on a whole other level. As such, since having my little boob fiend my clothing options have become severely limited. (And don’t even get me started on big cup nursing bras…) The dresses that made up the majority of my wardrobe have been packed away and the struggle to find clothes I can easily and quickly flop a boob out in is very real. Thankfully over the last couple of years I’ve become friends with jeans again (infact, I posted about my first foray into full length jeans in years in 2014!) meaning I mostly do the ‘one up, one down’ method of wearing a long vest top under regular tops. I simply lift the top up and pull my vest down along with my bra and voila, easy to feed in and my tummy doesn’t get cold/turn everyone in a five mile radius to stone.
However, I miss dresses. I miss flouncing and swishing about and general feeling like myself. In order to be able to breastfeed in dresses they either need to be an unstitched wrap or button down style. Annoyingly these are far and few between (or at least, the ones I actually like are) but I do have a couple of dresses I’ve found that I really like.
