I think I found the most fabulous, must-have item for every mom-to-be and nursing mother on the planet…
Moody Mamas collection is known for their soft, wearable dresses in fashion-forward, flattering silhouettes and colors. They recently collaborated with Target to offer some affordable and super comfy dresses and I’m loving one in particular…
The Moody Mamas Maternity Nursing Maxi Dress from Target is only $44.99.
Moody Mamas sent me the above dress, in gray, to review here on The Fashionable Housewife. I was absolutely thrilled and could not wait to receive it. I was so happy when it came in the mail! I immediately tore open the box and put the dress on right then and there. To my delight, it fit perfect, looked great and was super comfortable.
The best part about this dress is that you can wear it for all 9 months of your pregnancy and for many months after you give birth! The clever ruched band across the chest actually lifts up to reveal nursing slits to easily access your nursing bra for discreet and comfortable breastfeeding.
The sizing runs pretty true to size I think. I got a size small and it fits me pretty well. I am currently a 34B and the top fit loosely without a bra. I think with a bra, it would fit perfect. The straps are a little longer than I’d like, so I’m probably going to pull them up about an inch and sew them quick. I do this with MOST dresses, as I my breasts sit pretty high on my chest and I like them totally covered!
The only thing to be warned about is that this is a long dress! I’m 5’3″ and it’s too long for me to wear with flip flops. It would be the perfect length with 3″ heels though… So if you’re short, you might want to consider hemming this one. It looks like it would be really easy to hem up an inch or so because it’s pretty straight and it’s just a jersey material. If you are really tall, you’re going to love this dress because it will actually be long enough for you! I think this dress would be perfect for ladies between 5’5″ and 5’9″.
This lovely dress comes in three trendy hues including the black, teal and this season’s new neutral, gray.
