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.
Who said nursing clothes had to be dull and unfashionable? This dress looks really good on a post partum body - with the rubber extension out back, it adds comfort and accentuates the waist line in a perfect way :)
Thanks so much for sharing your experience with us!
The dress is very soft! I love the way the arms are tailored they made my huge pregnancy arms looks small! the waist cut is very flattering!
Thanks so much for this review!
Followed the other reviewers advice and sized down, still a little roomy in the chest but super comfortable
Thanks so much for this review!
I'm in love with the fabric of this dress. The fabric weight is nice; not too flimsy and drapes nicely. I was able to nurse comfortably. The L was accurate from the sizing program they offered. I wore it today to church and received compliments. I like that there is a defined waist, only wish it came in more colors!

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! :)
