Takes only a second to begin nursing using the snaps! Snap open when baby starts crying.

Made from a super soft cotton, modal, spandex fabric blend, this collarless oversized shirt fits like a dress that its comfortable and yet neat to wear. We’ve also added a practical pocket.

"This is hands down the best snap down maternity dress I have ever worn."

"This snap nursing function is flawless."

"I can’t wear other maternity dresses ever since I wore this one."

These reviews are from customers that have been using the famous ‘snap nursing dress’. The snap one-piece nursing dress already had such high satisfaction that we decided to make one for all 4 seasons emphasizing only its strengths.

The cotton, modal, spandex fabric blend not only feels good on the skin the moment you wear it, but baby can safely rub their face against it. The overfit dress stylishly covers your slightly overweight postpartum body and it makes sure your inner-wear does not show even when you squat to change diapers.

It is designed with a length that slightly covers your knees making it the ideal length for when you’re taking care of your baby and doing chores around the house. We’ve also added a pocket to the one-piece dress for your convenience. 

Creator's Note

I remember when I was first working on designs for mum’s clothes and trying on different outfits in the market. I remember the shock and embarrassment seeing these outfits with unappealing zippers hanging everywhere. I really didn’t’ want to buy and wear these cheaply made nursing clothes that were designed as though no one cared. And so I made my own designs with the intent to make lasting clothes that could be worn even after nursing. I don’t believe that function always needs to come before form just because it’s a nursing outfit. I wanted to show the world that when you design to make something the wearer can wear with pride and dignity in any occasion, you can truly make something beautiful.

Fabric

Cotton-modal-span, also known as ‘comfort fabric’. It’s soft and highly stretchable that the immediate feeling you get when you wear this is absolute comfort. You can be at ease when baby rubs her/his face against the fabric while breast feeding. Its gradable against lint so quite easy to care for. It’s a fabric made for all 4 seasons with a thickness just right for homes with babies.

 

Opening for Nursing

Takes only a second to reveal your breast, simply unsnap when baby starts to cry. We wanted to save you the time for even unbuttoning. This is a customized nursing outfit with partings that open all the way down to the lower chest.

Design

A simple and chic design made to look like a one-piece dress shirt. We designed the neck to look like a collarless one-piece dress rather than have the stitches look like a t-shirt cut. In sewing terminology, we use a stitching method called ‘combi’ but it’s a difficult method that requires a lot of patience and time that its usually not popular among seamstresses. But thanks to this method it has an extra chic and elegant look unlike most other daily wears. We added the snaps for function but it surprisingly went well with the fabric and even became a design feature.

 

Arms

Long yet thin sleeves designed for mums that are often cooking. The best room temperature for newborns are at 22-223 degrees Celsius but most mums will find this temperature slightly cold. As the saying goes, it’s best to keep the body warm up to the baby’s first hundred days. I’ve tried wearing cardigans and also long-johns to keep in line with this saying but finally I found that nothing beats long thin sleeves. No need for over layering. This one outfit is enough for all situations.

Length

A little lower than the calves are the perfect length for child caring. Before we launched our mums wear line we conducted a survey on our official Instagram page to ask mums which length they found to be the most convenient for child caring. We received around 500 responses and the outstanding consensus was for the length right below the calves. If the dress length is too long then the bottom hem often became wet when kneeling to wash the  baby. With this length it’s possible to squat and still not reveal any innerwear and at the same time cover your knees so it doesn’t get cold. It’s the best length for caring for your child.

You should choose the size of the Konny baby carrier based on your size, not based on baby’s age by months or weight.

  • Please check the size chart for shirts prior to placing an order, as people with the same height and weight may have different body shapes.
  • If you wonder if it is okay to be a bit tight when you first wear it with your baby in the carrier, you have found the right size for you. A larger size may cause discomfort as the baby would be placed too low on the body.
  • Think of it as putting your baby in a tight T-shirt. The fabric gets stretched in accordance with the increase of baby’s age of months. So please be sure to choose the right size from the beginning.
  • Normally, mothers gain about 10-20kg during pregnancy and gradually lose weight after delivery. The pace of postpartum weight loss differs for every woman. But generally, it seems to take less than about 100 days for many to recover with only 3-5kg left until getting back to the pre-pregnancy weight. The body size right after giving birth is approximately one size larger than the size of pre-pregnancy, due to the leftover baby weight and swollen breasts.
  • So, it would be better to choose the size for current weight if you plan to wear it right after delivery. As we boast a long lifetime of the product, choosing the size for the pre-pregnancy weight would also be a good choice to make. But if the weight difference remains over 10kg even after the puerperium, please choose the larger size.

Q. Do I need to purchase a larger size when the baby grows up?

As the baby’s weight increases, the fabric containing spandex stretches accordingly. Therefore, you should purchase the tight enough size from the beginning to use it in a same fit when the baby grows up.

Q. Can mom and dad share the carrier?

Parents won’t be able to share the carrier, unless their sizes are the same. If you purchase the product in accordance with one parent’s size, the other parent may experience discomfort; if you purchase about the middle size for both parents, both may experience discomfort. Try buying one in accordance with the size of one parent. If the baby enjoys the time in the Konny baby carrier, then consider making an additional purchase.

Q. As a dad, how can I choose the size?

For men, a person who is 178cm tall, weighs 71kg and with a chest size of 90cm, normally wears Large (L). Some of those who are shorter or lighter say Medium (M) fits them nicely. If you put on some weight around your waist, are taller than 180cm or have a bigger upper body, we recommend that you choose Extra Large (XL). You can find more reference images for a dad below.
