This little black maternity dress pulls double duty: wear it as a simple basic throughout your pregnancy, then rely on it just as much after baby is born thanks to its built-in nursing and pumping functionality. The soft, stretchy fabric is comfortable for a growing belly, but retains its shape for early motherhood style, too. Cap sleeves and the cross-front neckline are cute details on a classic silhouette.
The dress is comfortable and the material is soft. I ordered it because I wanted the nursing access feature, not the maternity aspect.
However, if you market a garment as having nursing access, shoppers need to know HOW that access happens. The photos of the dress should include the nursing access merhod, and it needs to be noted in the description with more specific details. Unfortunately, this style nursing access is not going to work for my level of modesty. It basically is a top exposure access without the ability to cover the top of the breast with the dress itself. The middle panel behind the crossover V-neck is anchored to the empire elasticized waist. It does not lift from the bottom, while the V-neck is moved to the side to latch the baby. This is important information for me, and I am sure other shoppers who prefer more coverage while nursing without having to drag out a cover that is too hot for summer and most babies wouldn't tolerate anyway. I'd love to give it a better rating. But if I had known this detail, I would have ordered a different style. For the price I expected it would have better engineering to it, and not just the simplest construction that leaves me exposed while feeding my child. Also, I ordered a small based on a different dress that fits me. I am an average sized woman at 5'5" and 150 pounds. Larger women might be happy with sizing options. Smaller women may not feel the same.
