The perfect dress for moms, Lyocell Nursing Dress with Smocking. The smocking detail, which is more comfortable than banding, is sure to assure comfort. You can also nurse by simply releasing a clasp behind the neck.
The Konny Lyocell Nursing Dress with Smocking is an elegant, effortless, and comfortable nursing dress disguised as a regular dress that scores high in both functionality and style. When I first saw it online I immediately fell in love with its simple yet beautiful and classic design. I was surprised that a nursing dress could look so elegant! As a first time mom, I’ve been struggling with my postpartum figure and am disappointed that I’m stuck with boring and cheaply made nursing clothes just because I am breastfeeding. This dress was a dream come true and did not disappoint after a full day of wearing and testing it out.
The Tencel fabric has a nice medium weight to it while being luxuriously soft and cooling. I wore it all day with temperatures ranging from 68-88 °F, did everything from running errands, shopping, attending an art museum event, going out for dinner, and of course, nursing. I felt so comfortable all day I forgot I was wearing a nice dress! I did have to use the garment steamer to get some fold creases out before wearing (which wasn’t hard at all), and found that after breastfeeding some wrinkles would form in the chest part from pulling the fabric to the side. After washing it in the washer and hanging dry, I did not find that I had to steam iron it.
Style and fit:
The first person who saw me in this dress said I looked “chic”. I felt beautiful and confident in it, as the flared skirt hiding my postpartum mama pouch. The dress gives a nice shape while allowing enough room to move around in. The smocking in the waist offers flexibility for the changing postpartum body and creates a slimming effect. I wore my Konny FLEX SUMMER Baby Carrier with the dress and felt very comfortable. The “Find your size” feature suggested a size M, but after reading other reviews and looking at Konny’s suggested size charts (scroll down), I decided to get a small, which worked out well. The waist does sit higher on my body compared to on the models’, which made my top portion look slightly bulkier than expected. I believe it’s because the models are relatively smaller-chested compared to my breastfeeding bust, so the way the waist falls on them creates a more slim look. So the only suggestion I would make is to show models of different shapes and sizes to give customers a better visual idea of what the dress might look like on their body type. Or better yet, consider using real breastfeeding moms as models!
I do love the pull-away style for breastfeeding access. It was so easy to undo the nape button and the snap button at the chest for nursing. I even just undid the chest snap with one hand for most feeds. And I must not forget to mention that this dress-as most dresses should-has pockets!
Overall, I am very thrilled with this purchase, and I will be wearing this dress even when I’m done nursing, for years to come!
Truly appreciate your wonderful and sincere review! This made our day!
Bought it ahead of my delivery and very excited to have something nice to wear after delivering. Style is suitable for both work and casual. The material is very soft and it is exactly as expected. Very happy about the dress.
Thank you for leaving us a nice review. Hope you enjoy wearing our Lyocell Nursing Dress with Smocking during or even after nursing your baby! :)
I am so happy with this dress. It arrived quickly and I tried it on. It gives me a flattering figure and I thought, finally! A breastfeeding outfit that is beautiful! I used the measurements given and decided to size down and get an S. It was the perfect choice. I would love it even more if there are more vibrant colours available in the range.
We really appreciate you taking the time to share your rating with us! :)
The dress is stylish yet needs the needs of a new mum. The material is soft and cooling, suitable for humid weather. I bought M size (as recommended), but i think s size may be a better fit based on the chest size. The waistline is flattering and makes me feel more confident about my body change.
I’m literally wearing it right now as I write this. This dress is super comfy. I’m in it all night and day! When I need to go to the shops, I’m already dressed! My husband bought me a belt for it to dress it up when we are out. But he says I look super cute. Also, it has pockets! Highly recommend.
The dress is nice looking and fit me so well. It is soft and smooth.
