The invitation to the wedding has been received. You’ve saved the date and popped the RSVP into the mail and are looking forward to witnessing the union of two people who are near and dear to you. But as the day draws nearer, the sudden realisation hits you:
You have nothing to wear.
This is a problem which we ladies face on a regular basis. But if you are trying to piece togethera stunning ensemble for that wedding where you may be seeing friends and family for the first time in years can seem downright impossible.
Here’s the good news: you have options, and plenty of them. Today we hope to give you renewed hope and inspiration that you, a beautiful breastfeeding mama, can put together a fabulous outfit that is not only complimentary, but that is chic and fashion forward.
There are some obvious clothing types or styles which will need to be avoided if you plan on breastfeeding (or pumping) during a wedding and the reception.
A lot of what you already have in your closet may not be a good fit. But you may find some items which you can use, including:
Clothing items which you already own may be able to be pulled down, pulled aside or pulled up to allow for easy nursing (especially our Peachymama range which we’ve designed just for breastfeeding mums). After dressing up the outfit with accessories, a cute clutch, and a gorgeous pair of shoes, you may already find that you are ready for the wedding.
You may have pieces already in your wardrobe which could work, but you need to add something more to make it a complete outfit.
If you can’t find anything in your wardrobe or are looking for something fresh and new to wear, consider wearing a dress designed with breastfeeding in mind. We have a number of long-sleeved and short-sleeved dresses which are perfect for celebrating that big day.
Two of our favourite “cooler month” dresses are ourBlack Silk Twist Front Breastfeeding Dress and ourCocktail Twist Front Breastfeeding Dress. Both of these dresses are classic in design and are created from silk/nylon chiffon, and polyester/spandex, ensuring maximum comfort and easy access to the breast.
Another favourite of the Peachymama team is our newCherry Blossom Breastfeeding Dress. Perfect for a spring wedding, this outfit can be dressed up with with a pair of heels and dressed down for a trip to the park with baby.
For those who are expecting to attend a wedding in the autumn and who love funky and stylish patterns, check out ourCrimson Print ¾ Sleeve Dress. Made of polyester and spandex, this dress travels well because it is wrinkle-free!
As a breastfeeding mama, you already have a lot of “extras” to plan for in order to attend this upcoming event. Do yourself a much deserved favour and properly plan your outfit so that it is not only easy to feed your baby on this exciting day, but so that you feel as beautiful as you look while you cuddle and snuggle your newest addition.

The sizing & fit of Peachymama nursing clothes are specially designed for you and your ‘after baby’ body. This means that if you were say, an AU/UK ’S’ (8-10) before bubs came along, you’ll most likely be the same now in Peachymama sizing.
Wrap the measuring tape around the fullest part of your bust, waist and hips. When measuring your bust we recommend you wear your nursing bra.
