On Trend Dresses That Make Breastfeeding Easy

Summer is almost here in Australia which means one thing: it’s time to update your wardrobe! If you're pregnant or have recently become a new mum, you deserve a small treat for yourself... or maybe two. 

How Our Dresses Benefit New Mums

A Peachymama dress, the first and most obvious benefit is that here atPeachymama, we create a dress with you in mind.

This means that when we design dresses, we make them to fit your after baby body - hiding those new bumps and giving you a way to discreetly do what you need to - breastfeed bubs, wherever you need to whenever you need without the hassle of wearing a normal dress.

The best thing is, though - our dresses look and feel like normal dresses, so much so in fact that most of our customers keep on wearing them long after they've finished breastfeeding. The famous Peachymama sample rack is often raided by friends and family long past breastfeeding.

The Dresses You Need In Your Wardrobe

We keep a sharp eye on current trends and we're proud to have a select few new types of dresses available to mums which they can now order from our website.

One long running trend we've noticed on our travels this year is florals, and to suit the preferences of all mums, we have two sleeveless selections:

  • For those with a cooler complexion: For mums who are looking for a dress featuring cooler tones and hues, check out ourPurple Floral Pinafore.

  • For those with a warmer complexion: Mums who are looking to heat things up this summer will love ourOrange Floral Pinafore dress which features larger floral patterns in bold orange and yellow.

      We have also welcomed two sleeved additions to our Peachymama dress family, one which is a classic and one which is incredibly modern in chic.

      Our classic design is theCherry Red Va-Va-Voom Breastfeeding Dress which features countless white polka dots set upon a cherry red backdrop.

      Feeling a little more 'Ibiza', check out the ”Summer Vibe Breastfeeding Wrap Dress” featuring virtually every colour of the rainbow and side tie for easy access.

      These dresses may be hot off the sewing machines, but we have many others which are favourites here at Peachymama!
