Sometimes, when I’m in the closet putting away my husband’s shirts, I catch sight of my dresses. The cute little black dress that is oh-so-comfy, the summer green dress I sewed before we got married, the purple dress I wore on one of our first dates… because I can’t wear dresses when I’m pregnant or nursing, and that’s been my state for the better part of the last five years.
The other day, I remembered that PinkBlush maternity sells nursing wear as well as maternity clothing. In a couple of clicks, I was on their website, checking out the tops. And the dresses. Yes, they had nursing dresses. The Black Beige Tye-Dye Maxi dress caught my eye. Maybe I’m a bit behind in the fashions, but I’ve seen lots of maxi dresses this summer and thought they looked cute. So I decided to try it out.
When my package came in the mail (very quickly, as usual!), I couldn’t wait to try my dress on. It was super soft and comfy and slipped right over my head. Right away I was impressed by the fact that it was long—the skirt fell to my ankles. Lily kept coming up to me to give me hugs, saying, “It’s soft!” The top was super easy for nursing Jade.
I wore the dress on Sunday to church and to a family potluck in the evening and got tons of compliments on it (though that might be in part because I hardly wear dresses as I explained above!). For church, I wanted something extra to cover-up while nursing, so I dug through my closet to find a black wrap/scarf. This also made the dress a bit warmer for the rainy fall day.
If you’re pregnant or nursing, check out PinkBlush Maternity. They just released their fall collection and have a great selection of dresses and tops in cool colours (and most of them are on sale!). You can check out my review of PinkBlush maternity top (which I plan to wear again when I’m not nursing—it’s just a bit long to nurse in but would otherwise fit any figure because of its stretch).

Is this your first pregnancy or your third? After having my fifth baby, I compiled all my pregnancy notes and research into a book for new moms! Beginner’s Guide to Growing Baby: Tips to Help You Through All Four Trimesters includes everything I’ve learned through five pregnancies, as well as the wisdom and advice of my good friend, Anna Eastland. She’s a mom of 8 babies, including one in heaven and one more on the way. If we could have you over for coffee and sit down to chat about bellies and babies, this is what we’d tell you! Between us, we’ve got you covered for everything you need to know about a natural, healthy pregnancy and your first three months postpartum! Beginner’s Guide to Growing Baby is available on Amazon.
I love this: Rust Chevron Textured Maternity Top and the cardigan and the skirt and the black dress- gorgeous!

Very nice! I like the black chevron maternity cardigan! I’m expecting my first baby in November– this would be nice to cover up my post baby body for a little bit 🙂 Thanks for the opportunity.
The black yoga pants!
I would like to buy the Aqua White Embroidered Maternity/Nursing Top.
The Mocha Navy Printed Maternity Dress is so pretty. I’d gift it to my friend.
I love the Black Draped Maternity/ Nursing Dress! It would make Sunday morning dressing easier, that’s for sure 🙂
I know how you feel about dresses! I finally had about 2 months this summer when I wasn’t nursing or pregnant and could wear dresses! PinkBlush looks like they have great maternity and nursing options! I discovered nursing wear with my second baby (and loved it) and am expecting baby #3 now so I’m keeping my eye open for good deals on nice maternity/nursing clothes. Thanks!
I’d purchase the black yoga pants. So comfy!
