Breastfeeding Fashion with Simply Be

Breastfeeding Fashion with Simply Be [Ad- Review]

If I thought that dressing my bump when I was pregnant was tough, that was a walk in the park compared to finding breastfeeding fashion I liked. At least when pregnant, there is a specific place to search in shops or online. Although there are some shops that sell dedicated nursing wear, I found them to be expensive and often frumpy. I wanted to be able to wear normal clothes that I enjoyed and have easy access to feed without my clothes screaming out that I’m a breastfeeding mum.

When Simply Be got in touch with me to see if I’d like to try out some of their clothes, I decided to challenge myself to find some lovely items that I could easily feed in. For me, breastfeeding fashion should still be fun and allow me to feel like me.

I found that there was a huge range of items to choose from on the Simply Be website. There were even plenty of high street brands available on the website, such as Oasis and Monsoon. I have to admit that I used to think that Simply Be only stocked larger sizes. However, their ranges start from a size 12, making them much more inclusive for a huge range of women.

I love dresses, so that’s the section I headed to first, with a specific focus on suitable breastfeeding fashion. I looked out for items with buttons, zips and wrap over tops for easy access.

The first item I chose was a blue denim pinafore dress (£30). It features a zip front making it perfect for breastfeeding with a feeding top underneath. I love that its really versatile and I can create lots of different looks with the dress, by changing the top I wear underneath. I can also chose tights or leggings to go with the dress, or bare legs in the summer. This dress is great in that it can be worn as a casual style, maybe with trainers, or more dressed up with heels or boots. I also love that it has pockets too!

I’ve always had chunky calves so always struggle to find knee high boots that fit me. I found these black boots (£45) and absolutely love them. They are a lovely soft fabric, and they fit me really well as they come in a wider fit option. I love them teamed with the two dresses that I chose. They are also wide enough for me to wear over skinny jeans too. I know they are going to feature in my outfits a lot over the coming months.

The second dress I chose was a purple check shirt dress (£22). It has buttons down, again making it really easy to feed in. I just wore a feeding vest top underneath for warmth. I love the bright colour and found the material lovely and soft. The dress is a great length for me, as I prefer for my bum to be nicely covered. The tie at the waist also gave the dress a lovely cinched in shape, without it being too clingy. I wore the dress with leggings and my new boots, it would also be great in the warmer weather with sandals.

I’m really pleased with the breastfeeding fashion items that I found from Simply Be. I hope I’ve proven that you don’t have to spend lots on specific nursing items and that great breastfeeding fashion can be achieved easily from our favourite normal retailers.

    I couldn’t agree more: I also found it really easy to find pregnancy clothes, but when it came to breastfeeding-friendly clothes, it was a really nightmare. I absolutely love your dress: it’s perfect for breastfeeding and doesn’t look remotely mumsy! xxx

      Thank you, I really wanted things that still felt like me and things that I’d wear after I’d finished feeding too.

    There’s nothing worse than trying to breastfeed discreetly, so I’m glad you found some good items that you can still wear after breastfeeding. And I had no idea Simply Be catered for such a wide range of sizes, so that’s handy to know. Enjoy your fab new look! X

    I had two winter babies, and it was such a pain finding nice looking yet comfortable nursing fashion that didn’t require peeling off hundreds of layers. Love your choices!
